Who is Clarence Lawson?

Clarence Lawson was known as Sharon Stone’s maternal grandfather. Aided by their grandmother, he used to molest the two girls after their grandma would trap the girls in a room when they visited, starting when they were just toddlers. When Stone was 14, he died of a heart attack.

Recounting Sharon Stone’s fears even after his death, she said she looked into the casket to make sure he could no longer hurt them. “I poked him, and the bizarre satisfaction that he was at last dead hit me like a ton of ice,” she writes. “I looked at (Kelly) and she understood; she was 11, and it was over.”

When asked if she discussed the horrifying details of sexual abuse with her family members before publishing the book, she told The New York Times.

Revealing more from the haunting past, she told The New Yorker, “My grandfather threatened to kill me constantly. Even though I shared a room with my sister, we had separate childhoods, because I couldn’t talk to her. And she doesn’t want to talk to me right now.”

“My mom is really great, she’s here with me, and she helped me through this. My sister referred me to my trauma therapist, so she has really helped me a lot, but I believe my sister deserves the time and space to come to her own story. Since I’ve had these new trauma sessions, I haven’t spoken to Kelly, but I have written to her and let her know what has happened to me and what I now understand about my own abuse — and what I didn’t understand.”

One of the most shocking confessions was that Sharon and her sister Kelly were sexually abused as children by their grandfather. In the book, she revealed they would find themselves in a room with their maternal grandfather, Clarence Lawson. Their grandmother would lock the door and leave them there alone.

“I believe that the point of my book is that it narrates a rather regular life. I don’t think that my life is exceptional, except that I ended up being a movie star. This book could be written by a lot of other people that grew up in a small town,” Stone said.

Telling her mother about the abuse was one of the hardest things for the two. She said in The New York Times interview, “We spoke to my mother and at first she was very stoic and wrote me a letter about how disconcerting all this information was.

Explaining how a conversation with her sister helped her, she added, “Then my sister got loaded when my mom was staying with her and really went for it with my mom. And my mom had a major breakthrough. When I finished the book, I read it to my mother over a three-day period. And I had the flu at the time.

“I was in bed and she got in bed with me as I finished the book, and then I recorded an hour and a half of her talking. And then I rewrote a lot of the book.”

“That’s when I dedicated the book to her.”

Sharon Stone’s revelation comes shortly after she disclosed how her producers once told her to sleep with co-stars to create better chemistry and a director who “wouldn’t direct me because I refused to sit in his lap.”
