One such unnamed filmmaker reportedly expected Sharon to sit on his lap while taking direction.

Stone’s tell-all tome detailed how her late maternal grandfather Clarence not only abused his wife, but he sexually-abused herself and her sister Kelly as children.

The abuse trickled down to the Pennsylvania-born blonde’s strained relationship with her 87-year-old mother Dorothy ‘Dot’ Marie, who now shares her West Hollywood home.

‘I read [Dot] the first draft, I recorded her thoughts in the book, and I dedicated it to her,’ Sharon noted.

Stone – whose IQ is reportedly 154 – likened her literary debut to a ‘unique and lonely journey’ that’s ‘hard for everyone else to grasp.’

‘It was like seeing the AIDS crisis at high speed. There was the same disinterest, denial, and lies. AIDS wasn’t just a gay disease. It became the number one killer of women in their reproductive years,’ Stone said.

‘If COVID wasn’t a warning to people to get their heads right, the planet itself will straighten it out. Nature itself is a great teacher.’
