Bumble accidentally booted the real Sharon Stone off its platform after multiple users flagged her account as fake. 

The still-stunning 61-year-old actress and Basic Instinct femme fatale tweeted that she'd been kicked off with the popular dating app after "some users reported that it couldn't be me!"

"Hey @bumble, is being me exclusionary? Don’t shut me out of the hive," Stone cheekily wrote before posting a screenshot of the notice she'd received from Bumble. 

The site's staff were quick to rectify the situation. Hours after Stone posted the tweet, Bumble editorial director Clare O'Connor informed her that her account's privileges had been fully restored and promised that "this won't happen again."  

“Thanks for bearing with us and hope you find your honey," O'Connor quipped in conclusion. 

As the Huffington Post notes, Twitter users rushed forth with humorous takes on Stone's temporary Bumble shutdown, some of which were jokey pleas for first dates from thirsty dudes. 

Meanwhile, The Big Bang Theory co-creator producer Bill Prady suggested that Stone download Raya, a private dating app for people in show business.

Despite her presence on Bumble, Stone has previously said that she's totally content with single life. Last year, the Golden Globe Award winner told People that she is "no longer hoping" for a partner.

"I think somewhere in the back of your mind you think maybe one day you won't be a single parent. Then, eventually you realize, I think it's better. I'm no longer hoping for someone," she said.

Stone, a mother of three sons, added that she has still taught each of her boys "how to be a gentleman." 

"I sit down and tell them, this is where I have to teach you how to be a gentleman and a man and we're going to figure that out together. There were times that we thought maybe there would be someone else to help with that, but there isn't. So that's what we're doing now."
