Sharon Stone apologizes for China remarks

Sharon Stone went and opened her big yap about something she barely understood and talked about people she barely knew, and look what happened: Christian Dior SA has dropped her from it's China fashion ads and released a statement saying she was "deeply sorry." Just because the Xinhua News Agency called her the "public enemy of all mankind," huh?

"Due to some customer reaction we have decided to pull her image from all of the department stores and from all of China," The company said in a statement. "We just want our customers and fans to realize that her personal comments are not related to the company and of course we don't support any type of commentary that will hurt the feelings of our customers."

After that, Sharon was quick to attempt damage control.

"Due to my inappropriate words and acts during the interview, I feel deeply sorry and sad about hurting Chinese people," Stone said. "I am willing to take part in the relief work of China's earthquake, and wholly devote myself to helping affected Chinese people."

That's what banning a 50-year-old actress' movies from Chinese theaters will get you. But they're all about the forgive and forget over there.

"We hope that as an actress she should contribute to our two peoples' mutual trust, understanding and friendship," Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said. Maybe that will help out Stone's karma a bit.
