Sharon Stone reveals details of 1990s ‘Barbie’ film pitch that didn’t make the cut




Sharon Stone gives out details of failed 1990s 'Barbie' film pitch

Los Angeles, March 24 (IANS) Actress Sharon Stone recently revealed details about a failed pitch for a ‘Barbie’ film in the 1990s. Stone shared on the Fly on the Wall podcast that despite having the then-CEO of Mattel on board, they were ultimately “thrown out” of the studio.

Stone explained, “We had it so the opening scene would be Barbie pulling up to Mattel in her Barbie car, and secret service coming out, and their feet are as big as the car.” She added, “All the big people are chasing her around and kissing her ass because she’s the queen of Mattel, and it’s about the power of being Barbie and what Barbie would do in the world because she’s so powerful.”

The actress recalled being escorted out of the studio after the pitch, with studio executives questioning why they would potentially tarnish the image of the iconic American doll. Stone mentioned that the executives at the time did not believe Barbie should be portrayed as powerful, but noted that they are no longer with the company.


It seems that Stone’s vision for a powerful and influential Barbie did not align with the studio’s ideas back in the 1990s. Despite the setback, Stone continues to share her unique perspective on storytelling and character development, keeping her creative spirit alive in the entertainment industry.
