Sharon Stone has said her next acting role is under threat because she refuses to work on set until all cast and crew have had COVID vaccinations.

The Basic Instinct star, 63, said she has been offered a job - “a good job, a job I really want to do” – in Atlanta but revealed it’s hanging in the balance because she wants everyone to have had their jabs.

Deadline reported that Stone spoke out in a video after announcing her candidacy for SAG-AFTRA's National Board and National Delegate on the Membership First slate.
