The Certain Prey actor said-

“I hear the cue, and I go hahaha, I do a big laugh or whatever.

Who the fuck do you think you are? Shut the fuck up.”

Glaudini further revealed-

“I’m out here, and I’m trying to fucking say my lines and you’re fucking pulling focus. You fucking idiot. Who the fuck do you think… Oh, now, oh now it’s not so funny? Now you can shut up? Now you can fucking shut the fuck up? Oh, it’s not funny now? The quiet that you are right now, that’s how you fucking stay.’”

Sharon Stone On How Acting Influenced Her Love For Painting And Art

Sharon Stone’s love for painting needs no introduction. During an interview with Artnet in December 2023, the Academy Award-nominated actor spoke about how acting has helped her become a better artist. She said-

Well, sure. When you’re acting, you have to allow yourself to be expansive enough to accept these other valances. You can’t do that unless you’re willing to wrap them around your own personhood and let the power of your own internal engine drive this other personhood. To accept being a completely other person is a big acceptance of knowingness—knowing another person, and then letting them take over your being. You can’t do that unless you’re willing to really hear, listen, see, imagine, know.

“When I was a little kid. My aunt had double masters in painting and English, and she taught me to paint. Painting was just another language I grew up knowing, like if you grow up in a musical family. I grew up in an environment where painting was just happening. I spent every minute I was off from school with my aunt and my grandmother.”
