Kelly Ripa is (jokingly) taking applications from anyone who wants to date her eldest son, Michael Consuelos, 26. But the daytime talk show host, 53, already has one particular actress in mind.

On a recent episode of Ripa’s Let's Talk Off Camera podcast, she had the pleasure of talking to famous actress Sharon Stone. During their chit-chat, the Live with Kelly and Mark host revealed that her two sons, Michael and Joaquin, 20, have crushes on Stone.

Ripa told the actress, “I wish I could introduce you to my children because my sons—as you know, we’ve discussed this over DMs—are very dichotomous in their personalities. They are not similar in any way. They disagree on everything except the hotness of Sharon Stone.”

The Live Wire author explained how her two boys (whom she shares with her husband Mark Consuelos) would position themselves right in front of the television if she was watching a movie with the Basic Instinct star in it.

“If my boys walk in, they’re like, ‘Yeah right, as if Robert De Niro would ever be able to get her,’” Ripa said. “'Yeah right, like Joe Pesci would have a chance with Sharon Stone.’”

Then, Ripa proposed that she could set up the 65-year-old actress with her eldest son, Michael. “Sharon, I could set you up with my son right now,” she explained. “He’s 26. I would love for you to be my daughter-in-law. That would be the greatest honor of our family.”

While the Casino alum found the crush quite flattering, Stone said that she’s not willing to date anyone under the age of 45. The Pennsylvania-born actress went on to share that there is a double standard for women dating younger men in Hollywood. 

“It was true to life,” Stone revealed to Ripa. “These women always were 20, 25, 30 years younger than the men [they dated], but if we dated someone 10 years younger we'd be cougars.”

Tough luck, Michael.
