During amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS event in Cannes on Thursday night, Sharon Stone paid an emotional tribute to late amfAR activist and beloved actress, Natasha Richardson, who unexpectedly died in March.

"This year we lost an angel from our amfAR family," said Stone. "It was one of those random events that leaves you in a state of shock and profound grief. People say, 'Oh, she can't really have been that great or graceful.' She was. 'That funny, charming, sweet and elegant.' She was. She left behind her husband and two stunningly beautiful children and an unfinished mission to help us find a cure AIDS."

After viewing a short film documenting Richardson's steadfast campaigning for the charity, Stone read a note from Richardson's husband, Liam Neeson, urging continuation of amfAR's great work.

Completing the tribute, Stone also pledged $50,000 of her own money to honor Richardson while Annie Lennox sang Talking To An Angel in honor of Natasha.

She continues to be missed!

    I saw the video of Stone's "emotional tribute" and give me a break. Stone is so fake and annoying. It was totally fake. That bitch is always crying and doing fake dramatics.

    RIP Natasha! Her father the late Director Tony Richardson died from the disease! She has been fighting it for a long time. I hope someday they find
    a cure for this and all dreadful diseases.
