LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Sharon Stone, famous for provocative performances, is playing the mother of another actress also famous for provocative performances.
Stone, 53, says she will play Linda Lovelace's mom in the biopic "Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story."
But before filming starts, the "Basic Instinct" star has another mission: She's taking her first steps into the world of social media with a Facebook page that welcomes troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Stone says her page will serve as a community bulletin board where people can not only thank the troops for their service, but offer them jobs, discounts, a helping hand and a warm welcome.
The actress says "it's very important that people know their country is behind them."
