Complete Transcript of the footage:

Reporter: Have you heard of the shock of that earthquake in China?

Sharon Stone: Of course I have.

Reporter: How do you feel about it?

Sharon Stone: Well you know it was very interesting because at first I'm, you know… not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don't think anyone should be unkind to anyone else… and, so… I've, I have been very… concerned about how to… think and what to do about that because I don't like… that. And then I've been just, you know, concerned about oh how should we deal with the Olympics because they're not being nice to the Dalai Lama who's a good friend of mine… And then all this earthquake and all this stuff happened and I thought is that... karma… when you're not nice that the bad things happen to you and then I got a letter, from the Tibetan Foundation that they wanted to go and be helpful… and that made me cry, and they asked me if I would write a quote about that and I said… I said that it was a big lesson to me, that sometimes you have to learn, to put your head down and be of service even to people who aren't nice to you and that that's a big lesson for me… and so it was a big evolution for me and a big process of... of learning that… process. And then I read in the paper today that the Dalai Lama was going all over Europe trying to speak to world leaders and the world leaders didn't want to meet him because, he didn't want - they didn't want the Chinese people to be mad... at them cause they talked to the Dalai Lama and I thought this is just a bunch of bullshit. And everybody's acting like crazy people.

Reporter: You know, Zhang Ziyi had a press conference yesterday about the earthquake, she said she would like to come today to speak about it, are you going to give her a chance....

Sharon Stone: Who?

Reporter: Zhang Ziyi.

Sharon Stone: Anybody can say anything they want to you know it's a free… place to talk and do and say whatever you want to say. I just think this whole… behavior... has got to stop and the, you know Chinese people have got to be more kind… and you can't be compartmentalized it's the same way with AIDS when we compartmentalize gay people now all these children are dying one every minute… you can't do that and Chinese people can't compartmentalize either… then who's gonna help them when they're in trouble? You can't compartmentalize it's not nice we have to be nicer.

Reporter: Should we watch the Olympics at all?

Sharon Stone: Of course… because we can't compartmentalize either we have to be kind… too we have to set an example of how we want people to be so we're gonna - were all gonna have to be as the best - the best people we can be so I - you know I don't think boycotting is the answer… but I - but I do not - I do think we have to be kinder and I think the Chinese have to be kinder.

(Inaudible question about being outspoken)

I don't think anybody should be anything. I don't think anybody has an obligation to be any way except kind… Thank you.
