Gorgeous actress Sharon Stone has finally admitted she's not a member of Mensa - to the genius organization's immense relief. Rumors have long persisted about the star's high IQ, but she told last month's Academy Award ceremony she has never joined the organization. Jim Blackmore, Mensa's national marketing director for America, says, "It's delightful to finally see Ms. Stone admit that she's not and never has been a member of our society. But then she goes on to say, 'I went to a Mensa school.' Not so." Blackmore is certain Stone didn't attend the school, because no such institution has existed since the early 1960s. He continues, "She may have been to a school for the gifted and talented, but Mensa did not run any schools, especially when she was a kid." But despite his annoyance with the persistent rumors, Blackmore admits Stone may be as clever as many like to think. He says, "My gut feeling is that she would definitely qualify. But that's just based on what we've been told by other individuals." Stone would not be the only Hollywood star in the club - actress Geena Davis is already a member.
