Sharon on Finding Mr. Right: I Won't Settle
September 14, 2006

Sharon Stone got candid with "Extra," opening up about finding Mr. Right, motherhood and her critically acclaimed new film, "Bobby."

"It's an extraordinary film," Sharon promised. "When I first saw the film, I thought, ‘Wow.'" 

"Bobby" received a standing ovation at the Toronto Film Festival this week, but Sharon gave all the praise to her co-star, Demi Moore: "Her performance in this film… well, you'll see."

The other movie that holds a special place in Sharon's heart is "Milarepa," a film about a Tibetan mystic made by Buddhist monks. All proceeds from "Milarepa" go to help orphans in the Himalayans.

"You know I'm kind of a sucker for that," Stone admitted.

Meanwhile, off screen, Sharon is busy raising her adopted sons, 6-year-old Roan, 15-month-old Laird and the newest addition, Baby Quinn.

"There is no joy like the joy of being a mom," Stone said. "We are now in the basketball team. Believe me, they're all in the driveway with the ball."

Sharon revealed she has never asked for a specific race or gender when preparing to adopt. "I just see what happens," she said. "I ended up with three fair-haired, blue-eyed boys, so I think that's what was meant to be."

Although Sharon said she would like a significant other, she added, "I'm not at the point where I want to settle with someone who doesn't have a sense of personal dignity."

"My children need to have someone they can look up to, someone they can look at and say, ‘Gee, I'd like to be just like him,'" she insisted. "So I don't want to just bring some schmuck around them. When I meet people I have to think about are they going to be a good example for my sons."

But don't expect Sharon to shy away from the spotlight. "I don't consider that because I don't have secrets," she said simply. "So I can live my life out loud."
