Sharon Stone laughs heartbreakingly when asked whether she's experienced sexual harassment

Sharon Stone appeared on a segment of CBS' Sunday Morning Show this weekend and addressed the topic of sexual harassment in the flawless way.

The 59-year-old actress was being interviewed by USA journalist Lee Cowan on CBS Sunday when he asked her about her experiences in Hollywood.

Actually, the specific question he asked was whether she'd ever been put in a position where she felt uncomfortable, in her decades of experience in Hollywood.

Stone immediately burst into prolonged laughter. Cowan asked with trepidation.

Stone said: 'Oh, I've been in this business for 40 years, Lee'. "Can you imagine the business I stepped into 40 years ago?" "Looking like I look?"

"I didn't come here with any protection", she added. Stone paused to let her words sink in before ending her flawlessly simple response with, "I've seen it all".

This isn't the first time Stone has spoken out about the rampant sexual harassment in the entertainment industry-or the harassment all women face. Look at the way she smiles pityingly at him, as if to say oh you poor, naive man, how could you not know?

Stone's remarks come in wake of the #MeToo movement, which has inspired women and men of all ages to speak out against those who have sexually harassed or assaulted them.

In her interview with CBS, Stone said that times are changing.

"There was about a five per cent chance of me living", she said. My whole life was wiped out. "Or [an] "Are you kidding me, of course I was" laugh".

Stone got her big break as a 22-year-old in the 1980 Woody Allen film Stardust Memories, before achieving sex symbol status for her notoriously revealing appearance in 1992's Basinc Instinct.

The mother of three also opened up about her battle for recovery after suffering from a brain hemorrhage in 2001.
