Stone's foray back into the dating world comes after her recent break-up with former boyfriend Martin Mica in January of last year. Previous to that relationship, Stone had been married to TV producer Michael Greenberg and San Francisco editor Phil Bronstein.
Along with revealing that she is once again ready to date, Stone also told Lopez some of her preferences for her potential suitors: “I like smart. Smart is my thing... I like dark. And I like ethics, I’m really into that — people who have devoted themselves to something they really like.”
Stone's statement about ethics likely derives from her recent charity work with her own enterprise, Sharity, which is a non-profit organization that attempts to utilize the status of the celebrity to promote charitable works.
Stone has been quite active in her charitable organization, telling Lopez that “I went into my closet and gave two thirds of my wardrobe, my really good stuff, best designer pieces, to fund this peace movement in the Middle East. We have amazing people participating in this, and it’s just so exciting.”
So, men - you now have the secret to winning over Sharon Stone: Hit the books, lounge in the sun, and make a commitment to something bigger than yourself. In other words, just be a decent human being and you stand a chance.
