The site quickly responded by reactivating the “Basic Instinct” actress’ account, saying, “There can only be one Stone. Looks like our users thought you were too good to be true. … We hope that everyone in our community takes a sec to verify their profiles.”
There can only be one 👑 Stone. Looks like our users thought you were too good to be true. We’ve made sure that you won’t be blocked again. We hope that everyone in our community takes a sec to verify their profiles. (Catherine Tramell from Basic Instinct gets a pass today!)

So Catherine Tramell and Ginger McKenna fans still have a chance to match with the Oscar nominee. Stone will star in Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Nurse Ratched series at Netflix, alongside Sarah Paulson, Cynthia Nixon, Corey Stoll, Finn Wittrock and others.
Bumble is a dating app that shifts dating dynamics by requiring women to make the first move. The company calls itself the place “where people go to learn how to establish and maintain healthier connections.”
