Sharon Stone reacts to Madonna calling her “horribly mediocre” with unbelievable class

This week, a private letter written by Madonna in the ’90s surfaced in which she refers to both Sharon Stone and Whitney Houston as “horribly mediocre.”

“It’s so unequivocally frustrating to read that Whitney Houston has the music career I wish I had and Sharon Stone has the film career I’ll never have,” she writes.

After the letter leaked, Stone posted a response to Facebook and brilliantly defused a potential controversy by writing a graceful, thoughtful letter:

Dear Madonna, First, I think it’s absurd that anyone is publishing your private letters. Therefore; I publish…

    Again we are reminded what a horrible person Madonna is.

  • ProfessorMoriarty

    None of us know what the context was for that letter. Can any of us honestly say that we have always been 100% virtuous in every email and letter we’ve ever written? Can you, Spike? I sure can’t.

    All that I am reminded of here is what a totally class act Sharon Stone is. You GO, girl.

    What amazing class. My late father would have called Sharon Stone “one classy broad.”

    Madonna – All Tits and Ass
    Sharon – All Grace and Class

    Funny how Elton John demeaned Madonna and she whined about it, back in those days. None of us are without sin though, right?

    Sharon Stone has been and remains classy.

    Madonna calling someone else “mediocre.” Hah! That’s the funniest thing I’ve heard all week.

  • Billy Budd

    I loved Sharon Stone in her role of a Bisexual Intellectual Maniacal Killer in BASIC INSTINCT. It almost turned me straight.

    Doesn’t Sharon Stone have a high I Q and a member of MENSA? So she has beauty and brains and class. Now Madonna…..has a stinky pood, steals creative ideas, movies suck, and has a Stinky pood. Did I mention her pood stinks?

      Goes without saying that a high IQ, whether is Madonna (allegedly) or someone else, does not equate wisdom… and much less comes with the act of merely getting older.

    Madonna wrote that YEARS ago, at the height of her callous, narcissistic zenith. And I love that Sharon takes the high road. She never denigrates or seeks to criticize others, particularly other women, which is so refreshing and equally unusual in today’s world.

  • DCguy

    Sounds like Madonna’s brother needed some money and leaked that. lol

  • grethomory

    Whitney Houston mediocre? I think not. I don’t know exactly when this was written, but I will bet you it was during the Erotica/Bedtimes Stories/Sex Book era. People had had enough of Madonna pushing the envelope and it came back to bite her ass.
