Stone Offers Kisses for Mideast Peace
1 hour, 17 minutes ago
TEL AVIV, Israel - Sharon Stone is ready to do her part for Mideast peace: The "Basic Instinct" actress said Wednesday she "would kiss just about anybody" to end the Israel-Arab conflict.
She arrived in Israel on Tuesday for a five-day trip sponsored by the Peres Center for Peace, founded by Nobel Peace laureate Shimon Peres in 1996 to improve relations with Arabs. It's her first visit to the Holy Land.
Stone, joined by Peres at a news conference, said she couldn't solve the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, but could use her fame to help encourage peace efforts.
"I would kiss just about anybody for peace in the Middle East," she said, drawing laughter from a throng of Israeli reporters. Stone playfully turned down calls to give Peres a peck on the cheek.
Noting it was International Women's Day, Stone suggested that more women become involved in the male-dominated world of Mideast peace talks. Women consider thoughts and feelings more than men, she said.
"I think (men and women) need to be a team. We were meant to be a team," she said.
During her visit, Stone planned to play soccer with a mixed group of Israeli and Palestinian children, visit Israeli hospitals that care for Palestinian children and celebrate her 48th birthday Friday with a gala to raise funds for children's educational and health projects.
Stone was nominated for an Oscar for her role in 1995's "Casino."
Her upcoming film, "Basic Instinct 2," is due for release March 31.

She was famous for like 1 scene in Basic Instinct, I assume she will renact that scene again 20 years later for fame and fortune?
She might have gotten more takers about 20 years ago.
Easy for her to say now that Arafat's dead.
....although she did say, "just about."
Every time I think celebrities can't get any dumber, they prove me wrong.
Yeah, but will she kiss my ass? :)
"(Sharon) Stone Offers Kisses for Mideast Peace"
This perfectly sums up the depth of her understanding. Although she is offering a significantly more substantive contribution than Richard Gere, who thought the presence of his magnificent personage would bring the engines of war to a grinding halt.
"She's all yours, guys. Go for it"
I don't know about that offer. You don't know where her mouth has been.
"....Women consider thoughts and feelings more than men, she said..."
I often consider the thoughts and feelings of men who have the power to blow my brains out.
I wonder: Perhaps their potty training was too harsh, or their birth order doomed them to lives of inconsequence. Was Father too demanding or distant? Was Mother seductive?
What about shoes? What do they feel when they see a foot in five inch heels? Is frottage a man's disorder?
Well, Sharon, if it wiggles, kiss it.
WOW! What a deal! /sarc
It pretty much tells you how totally bankrupt the Shimon Peres, peace-at-any-price wing of the Israeli political class is when they have to import a slutty American actress best known for exposing her genitalia in order to try to drum up their moribund peace initiative.
As my uncle would say, Oy Vey.....
Except for Dwight Yoakam. She probably wouldn't kiss him.
It's difficult to forget her description of kissing Country and Western singer Dwight Yoakam as being "like eating a dirt sandwich".
How FREAKING STUPID IS THIS WOMAN????
