Actress Sharon Stone Encounters Monitor Lizard On Her Beverly Hills Street

Stone thought the reptile walking down her street was a Komodo dragon, the same species that bit her then husband back in 2001.

Actress Sharon Stone, whose former husband Phil Bronstein was bitten by a Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis) at the Los Angeles Zoo back in 2001, encountered a monitor lizard walking in the gutter near her Beverly Hills home. She posted a video of the seemingly very healthy reptile on Twitter.

Stone mistakenly called the lizard a Komodo dragon, perhaps due to her negative experience with her then husband back in 2001, and then tweeted that animal control had finally picked up the animal, which was certainly someone’s escaped pet.

Stone’s Twitter followers tweets ranged from concern to “Jurassic Park Gone Wild” to “Harvey Weinstein.”
