Sharon Stone made a quick appearance at the 58th Cannes International Film Festival this weekend to promote her sequel to Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction – now shooting in London – as well as talk about her newly adopted son and reflect on being a single parent.

"I couldn't possibly imagine that it could get better after having the experience of being a mother to Roan. But the only thing better than one is two. He's a boy, and he's called Laird Vonne – that's my middle name and my aunt's name," said Stone, who adopted son Roan in 2000, when she was still married to San Francisco publishing executive Phil Bronstein.

Wearing plunging black décolletage and ruler straight hair, Stone, 47, urged women to have support networks.

"I think it is important to be a good friend and think I am very fortunate to have that 'village' that Hillary Clinton talks about. ... Certainly in this time of Laird coming into my life, I've had the best time of my life," she said. "More support and love and kindness then at any other time."

That said, Stone also touted her ability to accomplish things independently.

"I've found that ... a single woman can do it all, and I would encourage all single women to stand up and show that you can do these things on your own," she added.
