American actor Sharon Stone is opening up about the threats she received of losing her job because she refused to go to work with unvaccinated people around her.

In a video shared by Deadline for her run as a hopeful SAG-AFTRA national board member, the actor shared that she was being threatened that she would lose her job in Atlanta for insisting that everyone on set be inoculated against COVID-19.

"Will I go to work before everyone on my show is vaccinated? No. No, I won't,” she said.

"Am I being threatened that I will lose my job? Yes. Yes,, I am. Will I lose my job if everyone is not vaccinated on my show? Yes. Yes, I could. Will I stand up for all of us so that every set that we go on is vaccinated? Yes. Yes, I will,” she added.

She went on to say that it was "ridiculous … that we should have to go to work where we are not safe to work."

"I am standing up for all of us when I say that the Screen Actors Guild — that I will be working for with Membership First — will be safe for us to go to work," she said.

The actor further added that she was "not going to work until all of our sets are vaccinated. And you shouldn't either."

"Why? Because I am running for us. Why? Because we are you. I'm so sorry that this is our working conditions, but this is the Screen Actors Guild that we have today," she added.
