Lazy, unmotivated, sluggish – these are just a few of the prejudices that Gen Z is confronted with.

The younger generation is often ridiculed by older people.

Now, however, there is support from Sharon Stone.

The Hollywood star is enthusiastic about the often maligned birth cohorts - depending on the definition, this means those born between 1990 and 2010.

"This generation will not allow what their grandparents and parents and all of us fought for to be taken away just like that," the 65-year-old told the dpa news agency in Berlin.

Gen Z will not change for “outdated ideas” and will remain true to themselves, says Stone.

That gives her the feeling that she can do that too.

“I just love Gen Z,” emphasized Stone.

According to the Oxford Learner's Dictionaries, Generation Z refers to young people who were born in the late 1990s and early 1900s.

Gen Z is generally considered the first generation to grow up with the internet.

The generation is often confronted with the prejudices of being spoiled and unmotivated.

Sharon Stone became world famous over 30 years ago with her role in the erotic thriller “Basic Instinct”, followed by films such as “Casino”, “Catwoman” and “The Disaster Artist”.

Her art exhibition “Totem” celebrated its European premiere in Berlin-Mitte; the paintings can be seen in the Galerie Deschler until May 18th.
