Joining the ranks of those whose home prices were pummeled during the housing bust is Sharon Stone. The actress just sold her palatial place in the 90210 ZIP Code for 40% less than she paid for it.

Among other celebrities hacking away at their asking prices are Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, whose Malibu beach house is now listed at $9.95 million - nearly 33% less than it was last summer.

Sharon Stone is taking on two very different roles — one in a Linda Lovelace biopic, and another on the Web to welcome returning troops. The 53-year-old actress says she will play Lovelace's mother in "Lovelace. " But before filming starts, the "Basic Instinct" star has another mission: She's taking her first steps into the world of social media with a Facebook page that welcomes returning military personnel home from duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Stone says her We Welcome Home Our Troops page will serve as a community bulletin board where people can thank the troops for their service as well as offer them jobs, discounts, a helping hand and a warm welcome.
