Sharon Stone Throws Shade at 'Law & Order: SVU' in New Interview

Sharon Stone is revealing herself in a big way in the new September issue of Harper's Bazaar and I'm not just talking about the series of nude photos that accompany her exclusive interview either. The iconic Hollywood actress gets real about her rise and fall in Tinseltown and how she had to humble herself to reclaim her position as an A-list contender. Part of that included a stint on NBC's Law & Order: SVU back in 2010 that the actress might rather forget.

In speaking with Harper's, Stone got real and explained the struggle of working in television and how it ended up feeling like a seriously humbling experience.

“That was humiliating. Having worked with the finest people in the industry, I was like, ‘Wow, I’m really at the back of the line here. I’m wearing L’eggs panty hose, and in makeup they start out by putting this white primer on my face.’ I’m like, ‘This is so bad. What did I do to deserve this?’ [Then] I thought, ‘You know what? I got thrown off the bullet train, and now I’m going to have to crawl up a hill of broken glass, get back on the train that’s going a million miles an hour, and work my way from the cattle car up. That’s just the way it is, so I’d better get humble and shut the f–k up and do the job. Because if I can’t do this job, I’m certainly not going to be able to do anything else.’ ”

That's an interesting take on working for one of Dick Wolf's legendary shows. Usually we hear of actors and actresses being grateful to snag a guest stint on any of the shows that have been a part of the Law & Order trifecta. Do you think that Stone's experience is actually a fairly common one and other performers just dared not to complain?
