Sharon Stone, star of ‘Lovelace’: ‘I have never seen a p0rn0graphic film’

Sometimes I watch p0rn. Is that a big deal? Even though I am not the target audience for 99.9% of p0rn, I still find myself occasionally watching p0rn or something p0rn-adjacent. Like, I finally watched an edit of Farrah Abraham’s “film”. It was awful and it made me sick to my stomach. Anyway, I am obviously not up to Sharon Stone’s meticulous standards. Sharon currently stars in Lovelace, a bio-pic of Linda Lovelace, star of Deep Throat. Sharon plays Linda’s mother. So when Sharon attended the premiere/screening of Lovelace, she got a question about p0rn. Sharon wants you to know that she would NEVER!

In the upcoming biopic Lovelace, Sharon Stone stars as mom to Deep Throat porn legend Linda Lovelace. But what does Stone actually know about Deep Throat — or porn in general? Nothing. She hadn’t seen Deep Throat prior to making Lovelace, she told us at a Cinema Society screening last night. (“Why would I?”) And she hasn’t seen it since. “I have never seen a pornographic film,” she added. Seriously? “Yes.”

Peter Sarsgaard, who plays Lovelace’s husband, on the other hand, has watched porn. And he has some thoughts.

“The only kind of pornography that has ever held an interest for my mind, for any length of time — because pornography by its very nature is kind of just momentary — is Scandinavian pornography,” he said. “It’s always very beautiful. They filmed it, and they had a kind of flair. I remember seeing … I think her name was Seka. She wouldn’t have sex very much, it would all just be kind of like, Seka, being awesome. Very shabby-chic, also. Yeah, kind of like, fairy. Shabby-chic fairy.” Is this porn contemporary? (Where can we find it?) “No, it’s old. It’s old, so it feels okay to watch. [Laughs.] Because I think a lot of pornography now is just so brutal, unbelievably brutal. And I know it probably was back in the time that I have a memory of it being not brutal, in its own way it is. But now it’s like, so obvious that it’s not — I don’t know what it’s for. There’s not too many people making love doing porn these days.” Seka needs a comeback.

I didn’t realize that certain kinds of p0rn could have some kind of ironic hipster cred, but then Peter Saarsgard crapped out that answer and now it all makes sense. Hipsters watch p0rn… and get an ironic boner. But only for vintage Scandinavian p0rn with shabby-chic accoutrements, sparkled with fairy dust.

As for Sharon… chica, we saw your beav in Basic Instinct. Why so demure?

    She’s never seen a porno…..riiiiiight

  2. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Darlings, the Divine Ms. Stone has no need to watch pron when her every waking moment is titillatingly erotic.

    Seriously, I love the way Sharon owns her confidence and her defiance of convention. Fierce describes her to a T.

  3. Cherry says:

    LMAO@ both of them!!

    ‘The only kind of pornography that has ever held an interest for my mind, for any length of time — because pornography by its very nature is kind of just momentary — is Scandinavian pornography,” he said. “It’s always very beautiful.’ HAHAHA, Sarsgaard, you’re killing me!

    • Cherry says:

      On a related note, I don’t think I even understand his answer very well.
      - Pornography now is ‘just so brutal’, yet he would never watch it (so how doesn he know?).
      - ‘I know it probably was back in the time that I have a memory of it being not brutal, in its own way it is.’ Wait, what? So now he’s saying that even this ‘beautiful’ Scandinavian shizz is ‘brutal’?
      - ‘But now it’s like, so obvious that it’s not — I don’t know what it’s for.’ What, what? What is obviously WHAT?
      - ‘There’s not too many people making love doing porn these days.’ ….? Thankfully…?

  4. Elodie says:

    Sharon honey please… did you say that while wearing a certain white tiny dress and crossed/uncrossed them legs?

    Peter Sarsgaard can go sit his obnoxious a$$ in the corner right next to his wifey! Since when p0rn rhymes with making love? ugh can’t stand him!

    And now if you excuse me, I gotta Google scandinavian p0rn!

  5. Rachel says:

    I watch True Blood and Game of Thrones… I’m pretty sure those count as soft core.

    Seriously though, I don’t have the context. Was she throwing shade? Because I don’t judge anyone’s sexual choices as long as everyone involved is a consenting adult.

  6. Das Spleen says:

    Porn is for people with no imagination. Why use porn to stimulate myself when I can use my imagination?

  7. LadyRay says:

    She’s so bitchy, I love it. Anyone else, I would have rolled my eyes and tell them to STFU. Oh, Sharon, you give me lady boner.

  8. carol says:

    Then how are you supposed to act in a film about P0rn?

    Also, Liar.

  9. Jag says:

    She knew people would talk about her saying she never had watched it. She’s a sly one at times.

    • Cherry says:

      Yeah, but wouldn’t it be badass to just OWN the situation and admit that she’s watched porn many times, as we all have but are generally too embarassed to admit (but Sharon isn’t, because she’s way cooler than all of us), and name some of her favorite genres/films/actors??

  10. RHONYC says:

    “chica, we saw your beav in Basic Instinct”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ba-HAAA!!!

    her snappin gyro ain’t so innocent! :lol:

  11. jojo says:

    basic instinct is as close to soft porn as you can get.

  12. MJ says:

    Seka isn’t Scandinavian, she’s from Virginia, though she was marketed that way. There’s a documentary about her called Desperately Seeking Seka. She’s one of the most famous porn actresses from the ’70s and ’80s. I like her a lot.

  13. Nicolette says:

    Sorry Sharon, not buying it. Nice try though, and you look fabulous as always!

  14. paola says:

    I don’t believe for a second. Everybody watches pOrn, even those who say they don’t.

  15. the artful dodger says:

    Why do people feel so wild and sexy because they admit they watch porn? It’s like when people say they’re gay and make a big deal about making that statement. Who cares?!?!?!

  16. Monty says:

    I have probably seen a total of two minutes of porn in my whole life. Its all horrible to me. My gf tried to introduce me to female friendly films and I still couldnt watch more than afew seconds. I just kept remembering all the horror stories of that industry – drugs, abuse, coersion, desperation, suicide. I do read occassional erotica (no, not 50 shades – thats just crap). So yeah, I get Sharon.

    Sharon has teenage sons, maybe she find it necessary to say that for their sake.

  19. lisa says:

    i dont believe it

    i’ve been in hotels in other countries where i’ve come across it by accident on free channels

    so even though i havent bought it or watched the whole thing, i cant say i never saw it

  20. Jackson says:

    I love Peter Sarsgaard! His porn comment makes perfect sense to me and I agree with him. And Sharon Stone….kind of a whackado, but damn, gorgeous.

  21. NeNe says:

    I call bullsh*t that she has never seen porno! Are you kidding me? Come on now…

  22. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    And this coming from a woman who wanted to get botox injected into her son’s feet.

  23. Mia says:

    Wow. This just sounds like a ridiculous, unnecessary lie. She’s in a movie about a porn star of all things! No one would think less of her if she did watch porn, so why lie about it?

    And lol at “ironic boner”! I love it and I am determined to use it in a conversation at some point in my life even if I have to shoehorn it where it doesn’t belong. Nothing will get in the way of my mission, I tell you! Nothing! Lol.

  24. fabgrrl says:

    I’ve never been one to seek out pr0n. But, honestly, how can you say you’ve never “seen” it? Ever? Not flipping though hotel TV channels? Clicking a mysterious link? There are CERTAIN people who like to use my library’s computers to view pr0n (grrrr!!) so accidentally seeing it is very common.

  25. dcypher1 says:

    Watching porn doesn’t mean ur a pervert. It’s perfectly normal and no one should be a shamed to admit it. Who cares? There’s nothing wrong with being in tuned with ur sexuality.

  26. Lovereaction says:

    Why did not Stone get the part of Linda? The woman is sex on two legs still.

  27. unmade_bed says:

    Porn is so sad. I’m glad Sharon Stone said she doesn’t watch. It’s nice to hear every once in a blue moon.

  28. Andrea says:

    I’m not sure if she is lying but I do think its a shame that, in general, there is a stigma about women watching or liking porn. Upholds this idea that men need sex and sexual pleasure more than women which isn’t true.

  29. neelyo says:

    I don’t watch it because it bores me. And I used to act so I’m busy judging their ‘performances’. She didn’t sound too judgmental to me.

    Skaarsgard is an odd one. I never thought he was gay until I saw him onstage. He sounded and acted like the second coming of Paul Lynde. His character wasn’t gay, in fact there were a couple of women fighting over him. It was an awful performance. He’s definitely better on film.

  30. Danskins says:

    Why do people sometimes misspell porn as “pr0n”? What’s the deal with that?

  31. Dana says:

    I guess Ms. Stone is not counting the cooter shot that made her a star from “Basic Instinct”.

  32. anoninternettroll says:

    she looks good still. glad she hasn’t gotten a lot of work, yet…

  33. Jacqueline says:

    Hipsters watch porn and get an ironic boner.

    Freakin awesome

  34. Really? says:

    Look at her feet! No veins! WTF?
