Sharon Stone Says She Was Kicked Off Bumble For Impersonating Sharon Stone

Actress Sharon Stone has claimed she was removed from dating app Bumble for impersonating herself.

Stone, 61, tweeted early Monday morning that her profile was reported by numerous users for being fake.

The star tweeted: "I went on the @bumble dating sight and they closed my account. Some users reported that it couldn't possibly be me! Hey@bumble, is being me exclusionary? Don't shut me out of the hive ."

Stone went on to post a screenshot of a message on her Bumble account saying it had been suspended.

Bumble has been contacted for comment.

Stone's admission that she is a dating app user prompted messages of appreciation. Director Ava DuVernay tweeted:

The Big Bang Theory producer Bill Prady advised Stone to try out Raya, a private dating app for people who work in the entertainment industry.

Sharon, you want Raya.

Just last year, Stone—best known for her role in 1992's Basic Instinct—told People she is "no longer hoping" for a partner.

"I think somewhere in the back of your mind you think maybe one day you won't be a single parent. Then, eventually you realize, I think it's better. I'm no longer hoping for someone," said Stone.

Stone, who has three sons, added: "I sit down and tell them, this is where I have to teach you how to be a gentleman and a man and we're going to figure that out together. There were times that we thought maybe there would be someone else to help with that, but there isn't. So that's what we're doing now."

The actress isn't the only major Hollywood star to use dating apps.

Zac Efron admitted in 2016 he signed up to Tinder but didn't get many matches. "Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me. They thought [my profile] was fake," he told U.K. newspaper The Times.

In 2017, Oscar winner Charlize Theron told Ellen DeGeneres she was taught how to use Tinder by her friend, comedian Chelsea Handler. "She was on her phone and she showed it to me and she was explaining it to me in that Chelsea Handler way, which is just like, 'Yeah, everybody's doing this. What's wrong with you? Where have you been, under a rock?'" said Theron on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Describing the experience, Theron said: "It's just awkward. I like good, old fashioned [dating] ... this is why I'm still single, I like a good old friend hooking you up, or introducing you. I'm so old school."
