By 1995, Sharon Stone had followed up her breakout role in Basic Instinct with a string of “must show tits” movies, including Sliver and Intersection, so she probably decided that there was more to life than being a soft lesbian scene away from Cinemax’s 3 a.m. time slot, and announced that she was joining amfAR as Chairman of the organization’s Campaign for AIDS Research.
To this day, Stone remains the celebrity face of amfAR and she proved that once again by flying to Brazil last Friday for the third annual Inspiration Gala. Other celebrities in attendance included Fergie, Dita Von Teese, Pele and Kate Moss, but Stone was willing to show that her devotion to AIDS awareness was greater than them all by including herself in the evening’s auction.
One bidder paid $53,529 for a package that included a gold bottle of Moet & Chandon champagne autographed by Stone and Moss, and the women were so grateful that they kissed for everyone. And then someone paid them $100,000 to stop because it’s not 1995.
