  • ♪ ♪ ♪ >> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,

  • EVERYBODY.

  • MY FIRST GUEST IS AN ACADEMY AWARD-NOMINATED ACTRESS AND

  • AUTHOR YOU KNOW FROM "BASIC INSTINCT" AND "CASINO."

  • HER NEW MEMOIR IS CALLED "THE BEAUTY OF LIVING TWICE."

  • PLEASE WELCOME BACK TO "A LATE SHOW," SHARON STONE!

  • SHARON STONE, THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

  • >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME, STEPHEN.

  • >> Stephen: CONGRATULATIONS ON THE NEW MEMOIR.

  • >> THANK YOU.

  • >> Stephen: "THE BEAUTY OF LIVING TWICE."

  • THIS ISN'T YOUR FIRST BOOK, THOUGH, RIGHT?

  • >> NO, I WROTE A LITTLE BOOK BEFORE WITH MY FRIEND MIMI

  • CRAVEN.

  • WE WROTE A BOOK A THE LONG TIME AGO FOR PEOPLE TO HAVE SOMETHING

  • TO GIVE SOMEONE WHEN THEY LOSE SOMEONE IMPORTANT IN THEIR

  • LIVES.

  • >> Stephen: OH, THAT'S IMPORTANT.

  • >> AND I FELT LIKE, YOU KNOW, BRINGING THE PIE OVER OR A CASE

  • OF BEER, IT WOULD BE NICER IF SOMEONE HAD A THING TO GIVE

  • SOMEONE.

  • SO WE WROTE THIS-- SHE TOOK A LOT OF BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS OF

  • ANGELS IN GRAVEYARDS ALL OVER THE WORLD, AND I WROTE LITTLE

  • PASSAGES ON THE PAGES AND LEFT SPACES FOR PEOPLE TO WRITE

  • THINGS.

  • SO THAT WAS THE FIRST BOOK.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, THAT'S LOVELY.

  • WELL, YOU TELL AMAZING STORIES IN HERE.

  • BUT I NEED TO-- I NEED TO FACT CHECK ONE HERE THAT'S SLIGHTLY

  • HARD TO BELIEVE.

  • IS IT TRUE THAT YOUR GRANDMOTHER-- I HOPE I HAVE THIS

  • RIGHT-- YOUR GRANDMOTHER TAUGHT YOU HOW TO PICK POCKETS.

  • >> MY GRANDMOTHER JUST BASICALLY STOLE EVERYTHING THAT WASN'T

  • NAILED DOWN.

  • SHE WAS A REAL CHARACTER.

  • ALL THE DISHES IN HER HOUSE HAD THE NAMES OF HOTELS AND ALL THE

  • SILVERWARE HAD THE NAMES OF OTHER PLACES.

  • AND, YOU KNOW, THE KITCHEN TABLE HAD, LIKE, THE TIN DINER NAPKIN

  • HOLDER THAT YOU CAN TAKE THE NAPKINS OUT OF SIDES, AND THE

  • GIGANTIC SALT SHAKERS.

  • SHE WAS REALLY FUNNY.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT'S THE SECRET?

  • WHAT'S THE SECRET TO BEING A PICK POCKET?

  • WHAT DO YOU NEED?

  • >> DISTRACTION.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY.

  • LIKE PERHAPS SOMEONE MIGHT BE TALKING TO A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN,

  • AND NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT HER HANDS ARE DOING.

  • >> WELL, SORT OF.

  • WHEN YOU STEAL THINGS OFF THE TABLE TOP YOU OFTEN LEAN IN AND

  • TALK SO PEOPLE DON'T NOTICE YOUR HAND SLIDING THE THINGS OFF THE

  • TABLE ON TO YOUR LAP AND THEN INTO A BAG.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT'S THE BEST THING YOU EVER STOLE?

  • DID YOU EVER USE THIS SUPER POWER, SHARON STONE?

  • >> WELL, I DID, BECAUSE NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE ME WHEN I WAS

  • TELLING THEM THIS STORY.

  • I WAS IN PRAGUE WITH MY FRIEND, MIMI, AND I THINK IT WAS HER

  • DAD.

  • AND I WAS TELLING THE STORY, AND THEY WERE LIKE, "NO, NO, THAT'S

  • NOT TRUE!" SO I PUT THE ENTIRE TEA SERVICE

  • IN MY FRIEND'S PURSE WHILE I WAS TELLING THE STORY, AND WHEN WE

  • GOT UP TO THE ROOM SHE HAD THE CREAMER AND THE SUGAR AND THE

  • TEA POT AND EVERYTHING IN HER BAG.

  • AND I HEARD HER-- BECAUSE WE HAD A TWO-ROOM SUITE-- AND I HEARD

  • HER OPEN YOUR BAG AND LAUGH, THAT SHE HAD ALL THE HOTEL'S

  • STUFF IN HER PURSE.

  • >> Stephen: NOW, YOU'RE A PRACTICING BUDDHIST, I

  • UNDERSTAND.

  • >> YES.

  • >> Stephen: BUT YOU'RE A POPE FAN GIRL AT THE SAME TIME.

  • ARE YOU-- ARE YOU A POPE FAN OR A FRANCIS FAN?

  • >> WELL, I AM A FAN OF PEOPLE WHO STAND IN FOR SPIRIT, REALLY.

  • AND, I MEAN, I BELIEVE THAT GOD IS VERY SOPHISTICATED AND CAN

  • SPEAK MORE LANGUAGES THAN JUDGE, SAY, CHRISTIAN, OR AVENUES OF

  • CHRISTIANITY, LIKE CATHOLICISM OR AND I BELIEVE THAT GOD

  • PROBABLY SPEAKS ALL OF THOSE LANGUAGES AS A SOPHISTICATED

  • RELIGIOUSIDATEY.

  • AND THAT, REALLY, GOD IS LOVE.

  • AND I BELIEVE THAT REALLY GOOD RELIGIOUS LEADERS STAND IN WHEN

  • PEOPLE DON'T FEEL GOD AND FEEL THAT LOVE, THAT FORGIVENESS,

  • THAT GRIEF COUNSELING, THAT SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE DOES NOT

  • ARRIVE IN THEIR LIFE, THAT THE REALLY GREAT THEOLOGISTS SHOW

  • UP.

  • AND I BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE LIKE THE DALAI LAMA, PEOPLE LIKE THIS

  • WONDERFUL POPE FRANCIS, SHOW UP.

  • AND HE'S A JESUIT, WHICH I THINK IS A FINE SORT OF RELIGIOUS

  • TEACHING, MUCH LIKE THE FRANCISCANS, WHO I REALLY

  • ADMIRE.

  • BECAUSE THEY WORK WITH PEOPLE.

  • AND I THINK THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE LESS PIOUS AND REMOVED AND

  • AUTHORITARIAN AREN'T AS GOOD AS THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY WORK

  • WITH THE PEOPLE AND ACKNOWLEDGE LIFE AS IT IS TODAY ARE THE

  • BETTER RELIGIOUS LEADERS.

  • >> Stephen: BEING A REAL-DEAL MOVIE STAR, YOU'VE GOTTEN SOME

  • PEOPLE WHO HAVE ADVISED YOU OVER THE YEARS.

  • YOU WORKED WITH AMAZING PEOPLE.

  • STEPHEN SODERBERGH CALLS YOU I BELIEVE SHARON ( BLEEP ) STONE.

  • SO SHARON ( BLEEP ) STONE, WHO HAS GIVEN YOU THE BEST ADVICE?

  • >> IN MY ACTING CAREER?

  • >> Stephen: SURE.

  • >> OR OVERALL?

  • >> Stephen: DEALER'S CHOICE.

  • >> I BELIEVE IN MY ACTING CAREER, I WOULD HAVE TO SAY BOTH

  • PAUL VERHOVEN AND MARTY SCORSESE HAVE PROBABLY GIVEN ME THE BEST

  • ADVICE, BECAUSE PAUL VERHOFFEN TOLD ME THAT MY TALENT WAS LIKE

  • AN ANGEL THAT WOULD FLY THROUGH ME, AND THAT I NEEDED TO GET OUT

  • OF ITS WAY.

  • AND I THINK THAT THAT WAS VERY GOOD ADVICE.

  • >> Stephen: WOW.

  • >> AND MARTY SCORSESE VERY MUCH WOULD ALSO-- THEY WERE WILLING

  • TO TELL ME ABOUT THEIR OWN LIV LIVES, AND THEY WERE WILLING TO

  • CREATE A SPACE WITH ME WHERE THEY WOULD LEAN IN AND SOMETIMES

  • PUT THEIR FOREHEAD ON MY FOREHEAD, BOTH OF THEM, AND JUST

  • HOLD THE SPACE AROUND ME SO THAT I WOULD HAVE A SPACE TO BE.

  • BECAUSE THE SET IS A VERY CHAOTIC ENVIRONMENT, AND THERE

  • ISN'T A QUIET SPACE FOR ACTORS, YOU KNOW.

  • IT'S JUST MAYHEM, AND THEN, "ALL RIGHT, EVERYBODY!

  • SILENCE!

  • WE'RE ROLLING!" AND THEN EVERYBODY KW QIETS DOWN

  • AND THEN WITHIN SECONDS, ACTION.

  • YOU HAVE TO PREPARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A CHAOTIC ENVIRONMENT.

  • A DIRECTOR WHO WILL LITERALLY PUT THEIR MIND TO YOUR MIND AND

  • LOOK AT YOU AND TALK TO YOU AND REALLY GET IN THERE WITH YOU.

  • THOSE ARE THE MOST HELPFUL TO ME, THE PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTAND

  • THAT, YOU KNOW,, YOU KNOW, THE LIGHTING CREW, THEY'RE BRINGING

  • THE LIGHTS AND THE SOUND MAN, THEY'RE DRAG CABLES, AND THE

  • CARPENTERS, THEY'RE WORKING AND BUILDING.

  • BUT YOU, YOU'RE BRINGING EMOTION.

  • YOU'RE BRINGING THIS THING OUT OF YOURSELF.

  • AND A LOT OF PEOPLE, HONESTLY, THEY DON'T REALLY GET WHAT THAT

  • TAKES OR THAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SMALL PROTECTED SPACE TO DO

  • THAT.

  • MANY PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO GET SO MUCH ELSE FROM YOU WHILE YOU'RE

  • DOING THAT, THAT YOU ALMOST FEEL LIKE YOU'RE GOING TO SNAP, YOU

  • KNOW.

  • AND YOU'RE CRITICIZED IF YOU DO SNAP.

  • SO SOMEONE WHO WILL PROTECT YOU WHILE YOU'RE WORKING IS A VERY

  • BIG DEAL.

  • >> Stephen: ARE THERE ANY INSTANCE WHERE'S YOU TALK ABOUT,

  • YOU KNOW, SNAPPING IN HERE?

  • >> PROBABLY.

  • >> Stephen: DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR SNAP THAT YOU-- YOU

  • WANT TO ATONE FOR OR A SNAP THAT YOU FELT, NO, THAT WAS ENTIRELY

  • JUSTIFIED?

  • >> I WOULD NOT SAY SO MUCH FOR MYSELF, BUT I CAN CERTAINLY SAY

  • THAT I SEE WITH SUCH, YOU KNOW, BRILLIANT ACTORS, LIKE MAYBE

  • CHRISTIAN BALE, WHO COMPLETELY TRANSFORMS HIMSELF INTO SOMEONE

  • ELSE, WHETHER HE'S PLAYING GEORGE BUSH OR WHETHER HE'S

  • PLAYING AN ANOREXIC OR WHETHER HE'S PLAYING AN O.C.D., YOU

  • KNOW, STOCKBROKER, HE BECOMES A DIFFERENT PERSON.

  • AND PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, WANT TO GET UP IN HIS BUSINESS WHILE

  • HE'S TRYING TO COMPLETELY TRANSFORM INTO ANOTHER PERSON,

  • AND THEN HE'S LIKE, "GET AWAY FROM ME!"

  • YOU KNOW, AND THEN THEY WANT TO CRITICIZE HIM FOR NOT BEING

  • AVAILABLE TO THEM.

  • I FIND THAT A LITTLE BIT KNOW-- MAYBE THEY SHOULD JUST, YOU

  • KNOW, GROW UP.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: SOUND ADVICE.

  • "THE BEAUTY OF LIVING TWICE" IS AVAILABLE MARCH 30.

  • THE AUTHOR, SHARON STONE, EVERYBODY!

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH KEN BURNS.

  • THANKS, SHARON.
