In a candid new interview, Sharon Stone revealed that she once tried online dating but later realized that it is not the right place to look for love.
Acclaimed actress Sharon Stone had experimented with an online dating app called Bumble. But, according to the 62-year-old actress, the dating site did not help her find someone to love.
"Dating sites are just not a successful thing," Stone recently told Telegraph magazine. "Because real chemistry, that frisson, that happens in the air - not on a site."

The "Basic Instinct" actress also blamed dating sites for why people are now becoming less socially adept. The proud mother of three added:
"I don't want a 'text relationship' with someone I'm actually dating, for example. I find that dismal."
Stone went on to say that she thinks it is sad people nowadays do not flirt in person anymore. The actress blamed technology for taking away physical interactions.
Stone, who made her film debut as an extra in Woody Allen's comedy-drama "Stardust Memories," has been an advocate for the #MeToo movement, which seeks to end sexual abuse and sexual harassment.
Nonetheless, the actress said that she does not really care if men touch her butt or call her "honey" or "darling" as she thinks there are more important things to fight over.
She blamed non-mask wearers for getting her sister sick.
The "King Solomon's Mines" star added that it may be because she has been through so much as well as her current age that she can now figure out what really needs her attention.
Meanwhile, Stone recently revealed that her younger sister Kelly and brother-in-law have tested negative for the COVID-19 disease for the first time since their battle with the contagious disease began.
Stone initially revealed Kelly's diagnosis while slamming those who refuse to wear masks to protect themselves and other people. She blamed non-mask wearers for getting her sister sick.
Stone then urged her fans to light candles for her sister, who also suffers from autoimmune disease lupus, and her husband Bruce. The actress called her brother-in-law a "dear friend."
In an interview, Stone said she is so relieved the couple finally tested negative. She added that what happened to them was just so stressful, especially because her son also had to undergo surgery at the same time. She was a mess during this time, she confessed.
Recently, Stone promoted her upcoming television series, "Ratched," which is set to debut on September 18 on Netflix. She will star opposite Sarah Paulson and Cynthia Nixon.
Meanwhile, Stone earlier confessed that she misses hugging her friends. The actress said she has not been able to do that due to the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.
