When the infamous Wikileaks happened, Stone's phone number and email address were released to the public, and it created quite a problem for her. In a recent edition of The Wall Street Journal, Stone revealed what she did when she found out that her details were released:
I was getting all these emails and texts from people I didn't know — 'Hi, I'm Joe from the UK I like your movies' — and I was so overwhelmed that I went to my inbox and I deleted all my emails. In about a 30-second span, I hit 'Select All' and 'Delete Forever,' and thousands of emails, like six years of emails, are now gone forever. I was just so freaked out that someone was in there ... It was horrible. I cried for like an hour. Most of the emails I'm mourning I can still talk to the person and get them back. But there's others where the person is actually gone. It really sucks.
The funniest part of the story is that she didn't actually get that many emails at all. When prompted for a specific number, she said: "It was probably five emails and five texts," Stone says. "I just went there."
In April, WikiLeaks published 173,132 emails and 30,287 documents stemming from the Sony hack in a searchable database, revealing email addresses and phone numbers for tons of celebrities.
