Now that Sharon Stone’s dating profile has been unblocked on Bumble, things are going great for the 61-year-old actress.
Stone was spotted at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards event Sunday after the Oscars, and spoke about her new endeavor.
“It’s open now. I’m open for business!” she says, according to ET.
And things are going well, now that her Bumble account has been restored.
“It’s going OK. I’m actually having a nice time. I’ve met a couple of nice people and I’ve actually made a couple of nice friends by doing that.”
In December, Stone posted an Instagram message that her account had been blocked. Her message went viral.
“I went on the @bumble dating site and they closed my account. ?? Some users reported that it couldn’t possibly be me! Hey @bumble, is being me exclusionary ? ??♀️ Don’t shut me out of the hive.”
She told the magazine that she thinks because turned down some men on the dating site, the system blocked her account.
“I think that I said no to a couple of people that thought that it would be a nice way to be not-so-kind back. I think some people don’t like to hear, ‘No, no I don’t want to go out with you,’ ” she said.
People were incredulous that someone would say no to Sharon Stone.
“Just remember the poor sap on Bumble who had a shot at Sharon Stone but reported her as a fake profile instead! When Opportunity Knocks get off your butt and OPEN the DOOR!!” said @ZnoneoftheAbove on Twitter.

Stone detailed some of her criteria when out in the dating world.
“I’m looking for someone who wants to have a caring and compassionate and loving relationship like anybody else,” she says.
And when her dating life isn’t so hot, she says she knows plenty of people she can turn to.
“I certainly can go to Sarah Paulson. She’s a very dear and lovely friend of mine. So is Holland Taylor,” referring to the “American Horror Story” actress and her girlfriend.
She know some people in pretty high places, it seems.
“I can go to Iliza Shlesinger for sure. Elton [John] and David [Furnish], for sure.”
Since her Bumble announcement, Stone’s gotten plenty of love online from people who’d like to date the actress.
