The Golden Globe-winning actress Sharon Stone has revealed she was bumped from the dating site Bumble because other users had reported her profile, not believing it to be genuine.

Stone, 61, best known for starring in 1992 drama "Basic Instinct," said she was locked out of her account after other users claimed it was fake.

"I went on the @bumble dating sight [sic] and they closed my account," she wrote in a Twitter post.

Stone said other users thought the profile "couldn't possibly be me!!"

She added, "Hey @bumble, is being me exclusionary? Don't shut me out of the hive."

Bumble, which describes itself on Twitter as "bringing good people together," later restored her account, saying it was "so honored that Ms. Stone wants to be a part of the Hive."

"Being the icon that she is, we can understand how so many of our users felt it was too good to be true once they noticed her profile wasn't photo verified," a Bumble representative told CNN.

Bumble's editorial director, Clare O'Connor, added on Twitter that she hoped it would now be easier to "find your honey."

In 1984 Stone married producer Michael Greenburg but the pair split three years later.

Her second marriage was to journalist Phil Bronstein in 1998, which lasted until 2004 when their divorce was finalized.

In 2018 she told Grazia magazine she has high expectations for the men in her life. "I was just not that girl who was told that a man would define me," she explained. "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."

December began on a beautiful note for northern California with plentiful sunshine, seasonably cool lows and warmer than average highs. Much of wednesday will be similar to today, but clouds will stream into our sky late in the day.
