Stone launches Facebook page to welcome back troops
The 53-year-old actress says she will play Lovelace’s mother in “Lovelace.’’ 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 returning military personnel home from duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Stone says her page will serve as a community bulletin board where people can thank the troops for their service and offer them jobs, discounts, a helping hand and a warm welcome.
“It’s very important that people know that their country is behind them,’’ Stone said. “With all of this negative chatter in the governmental races, we need to have our actual country say what they feel in loving, really vocal terms.’’
