Through her work in films like Basic Instinct and Casino, Sharon Stone has cemented herself as one of Hollywood's most desired women. But in her personal life, romance is currently eluding her. It's not that she's doing anything wrong: not reading the signals or dating men who aren't right for her. Her problem is that she's been banned by Bumble.

Bumble, a dating app, is one of the world's most popular ways for singles to meet potential soulmates. It's no wonder, then, that Sharon would turn to it. But coming across a world-famous, Oscar-nominated actress evidently struck some men as suspicious, and they reported her profile as fake.

'I went on the Bumble dating site and they closed my account,' Sharon tweeted. 'Some users reported that it couldn't possibly be me! Hey Bumble, is being me exclusionary? Don't shut me out of the hive!'

The actress has been married twice, to TV producer Michael Greenburg, and to Phil Bronstein, a newspaper executive. In 2018, she told Grazia that she knows what she wants in a man. 'I was just not that girl who was told that a man would define me', she said. 'I was told that if I wanted to have a man in my life, it wouldn't be an arrangement, it would be an actual partnership. And those are hard to find.'

Luckily for Sharon, a solution has been found. Bumble's editorial director Clare O'Connor tweeted 'AHA! Sharon Stone, we at Bumble found your account, unblocked you, and ensured this won't happen again. You can get back to Bumbling! Thanks for bearing with us and hope you find your honey.'

Sharon, 61, isn't the only celebrity to venture onto dating apps in an attempt to find love. Amy Schumer and Katy Perry have both said that they could once be found on Tinder, and Zac Efron said he had similar troubles to Sharon. 'Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me!' Zac told The Times in 2016. 'They thought [the profile] was fake.'

If Sharon has any further problems, she may want to take to Raya instead. The dating site is billed as suitable for high profile and famous users, with Lily Allen and Niall Horan among known subscribers. Only last week, reports stated that Magic Mike actor Channing Tatum had logged on after his split from Jessie J.

Perhaps Channing and Sharon could grab a drink?
