Sharon Stone Offers Counterpoint To Hollywood’s Panic About Biden Debate Performance

UPDATED with Stone comment: After an outpouring of concern from Hollywood notables prompted by Joe Biden’s performance in the first 2024 presidential debate, Sharon Stone offered a counterpoint today in a video she posted to Instagram.

“I’ve been thinking a lot about last night’s debate,” Stone says to the camera from the passenger seat of a car, “and I’ve been thinking about the fact that more women are registered to vote than any other singular group. So, ladies, remember this: No matter how sleepy Joe may have seemed, he’s wide awake for you. So vote, for yourself.”
