Sharon Stone kicked off dating app 'cause no one believed it was really her

Hollywood star Sharon Stone's account on a dating app was briefly suspended after disbelieving users reported it as fake.

The Basic Instinct actress took to Twitter to complain after Bumble users reported her profile "couldn't possibly" be her.

"I went on the @bumble dating sight and they closed my account [sic]," she told her 147,000 followers. "Hey @bumble, is being me exclusionary? Don't shut me out of the hive."

Bumble is the second-biggest dating app in the US after Tinder. Its point of difference is that straight men can't initiate contact with women. Users aren't allowed to use photos of themselves in underwear or obscure their faces.

A spokesperson for the company quickly came to the sex symbol's rescue. 

"AHA! @sharonstone, we at @bumble found your account, unblocked you, and ensured this won't happen again," replied Clare O'Connor. "You can get back to Bumbling! Thanks for bearing with us and hope you find your honey."

Fans reacted in shock to Stone's Bumble woes.

"As if dating wasn’t hard enough we have to compete with Sharon Stone now," wrote one. 

"If Sharon Stone can't get a date, it's over-@bumble needs to fix this for the sake of humanity," said another.

"Imagine finding Sharon Stone on Bumble but you decide to report her account instead of shooting your shot," added a third.

Stone has been married a couple of times, with her most recent divorce in 2004. Since then she's been a single mother, and currently has three teenage boys.
