Stone stunned a studio audience on comedienne Ellen De Generes TV chat show when she showed off her auctioning skills by selling off her earrings
She really was born with the basic instinct of an auctioneer with her. As a clear evidence Sharon Stone has becoming one amongst the celebrities whose main concern in their spare time is to raise money for charity.
The star was on Ellen DeGeneres's show on TV Friday when DeGeneres asked her about a recent charity auction she hosted, where she offered the men in the audience the chance to fasten her dress when a clasp came loose - for a fee - when she sparked an impromptu bidding frenzy. When being asked so, the actress replied: "I can do it right now... You want to see?"
So, there she was auctioning her diamond earrings with a starting price of 500 pounds which later rose to 7,000. More than that, Stone also offered the lucky buyer a signed photo of her, besides promising "I'll put them in a box, I'll gift wrap them personally." Money raised will be given to the American Foundation for Aids Research.
