  1. I read that and pissed myself laughing – she just proves she has no idea about the world!!

  2. Will — very true. Good at that, you know, crossing-her-legs thing, though. A classic cimematic moment 🙂

    KSD — Yup, her definition of karma is a bit wonky, too, isn’t it?

  3. What an idiot! I’m sure that every single person affected by the earthquake in China was mean to a Tibetan. Whatever…

    I don’t believe in karma and yet I have a better understanding of it than she does. lol

    Do Stone’s comments just border on racism, or do they cross the line? Huh… I’ll have to think about that.

  4. Okay, KSD — uncrossing and recrossing her legs, then 😉 The Basic Instinct scene?

    I’m actually not too concerned about the race aspect, Lottie. I think it somehow goes beyond that… it somehow goes against any basic concept of what it is to be a feeling human being. It was more… “issue-ism” than racism, I tend to think (if that makes sense… I’m rushing cos the sun’s out!)

    Yep! That’s what it is.

    I’ve been thinking about it since I posted that last comment, and couldn’t quite justify my accusation of racism; it just didn’t feel right. I think I was too hasty to put a label on it and overlooked how simply unfeeling it is.

    The stupidity of it just caught me off guard, I guess. lol

  6. I can certainly see how you viewed it that way, though. But, yes, the bottom line is, like you say, her stupidity. It’s positively dazzling. Makes it difficult to see whether it is or isn’t about something else altogether! It’s that “did she really say that?”-thing.

  7. Some time around her Basic Instinct years when the media machine was churning pro-Stone, I remember reading about her genius IQ. Despite it being everywhere, Mensa denied any knowledge of Ms Stone’s alleged 154 score; a mere 6 points away from Stephen Hawking. A few years ago, she took it back and claimed a publicist had said it. Now perhaps she IS bright, who knows, but her comments are idiotic and ignorant, and show a lack of cultural knowledge. Maybe she’s better at spatial awareness.

  8. I’d never heard that story, kallioppe — but in every interview I’ve seen her give, she certainly never struck me as being in Stephen Hawking’s league. 🙂 For the most part, she came across as quite dim. The comment must have been the work of a publicist; I seriously doubt she’s bright enough to be that creative.

  9. It is to be expected that some American would say something like that. After all, she is simply following the example set by the Evangelists who blamed the Tsunami in 2004 on Islam and the destruction by Hurricane Katrina on the Gays of New Orleans. The sad part is that a large number of Americans actually believe this is an honest Christian appraisal of the two situations. It doesn’t stop there – there are even more stupidities in the pipeline!

  10. Yes, all variations on the same theme, I guess, Archie. Distorted perceptions of superstitious belief.

    Thanks for the link. Another one for my Stupid People file 😉
