Cruelle de Stone really doesn’t have any love for our animal friends. Ernest Borgnine, who starred with Sharon Stone in Wes Craven’s “Deadly Blessing,” says that while shooting the movie Wes kept trying to get Sharon to do a scene with a huge tarantula.
Ernest writes in his new autobiography that she only agreed to do it under one condition, “Sharon wanted the spider’s pincers removed . . . Since someone from the ASPCA might be reading, let’s just skip what happened next.”
The ASPCA didn’t respond, but Peta did! They told Page Six, “She chose to make a tiny insect an amputee. Perhaps she should change her name legally to ‘Heart of Stone.’ ” Hmm…Heart of Stone? That has a nice ring to it. Sharon’s spokeswhore laughed it off by saying, “If the tarantula was a male, we could add him to her list of her extraordinary leading men, including Richard Chamberlain, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Richard Gere & Dustin Hoffman.”
I’m disappointed in Cruella de Stone. I thought she ate live tarantulas for breakfast. She probably turned the tarantula’s sphincters (typo, but I’m keeping it) into earrings.
Below is the scene from the movie starring Sharon and the poor spider. I’m surprised Sharon cared so much. She should be used to having hairy things in her mouth.
