Dating is hard even for one of the most beautiful women in the world.

Sharon Stone found herself unable to swipe left or right as she revealed she was blocked from using her Bumble account after users complained believing it was a fake.

“I went on the @bumble dating sight [sic] and they closed my account,” the 61-year-tweeted.

“Some users reported that it couldn’t possibly be me!”

She added: “Hey @bumble, is being me exclusionary ? Don’t shut me out of the hive.”

The “Casino” star included a screenshot of the message she received from Bumble alerting her that “You’ve been blocked.”

“We’re committed to keeping Bumble safe, which means we have to enforce certain rules when our values are violated,” the message stated. “Your account has been blocked because we’ve received several reports about your profile being fake.”

Stone’s tweet went viral and eventually got the attention of the dating app. Hours later, the situation was rectified and the Oscar nominated star’s account was reinstated.

“There can only be one 👑 Stone,” the official Bumble account tweeted. “Looks like our users thought you were too good to be true. We’ve made sure that you won’t be blocked again.”

And in an attempt to keep things light, Bumble made a cheeky reference to Stone’s seductive character in “Basic Instinct.”

The tweet continued, “We hope that everyone in our community takes a sec to verify their profiles. (Catherine Tramell from Basic Instinct gets a pass today!)”

In the ‘80s, Stone was married to producer Michael Greenburg.  In 1998, she wed newspaper editor Phil Bronstein. The couple adopted a son, Ronan, in 2000 and later divorced in 2004. She adopted her second son, Laird, in 2005. The following year, she adopted her third son, Quinn.

Stone will next be seen opposite Jude Law in the second season of HBO’s “The New Pope,” which premieres on January 10th.
