New York, May 10 (ANI): While Sarah Palin insists in her memoir 'Going Rogue,' that she never shook hands with Oliver Stone, the filmmaker insists that he did shake hands with her when they first met.

Speaking at Tuesday's Time 100 gala, where the right wing pinup and the left wing filmmaker crossed paths, Stone said that the former republican Vice Presidential is a liar.

"She won't shake my hand," the New York Daily News quoted Stone as saying.

"I couldn't care less," he shrugged.

However, he said: "she is such a liar."

Stone recalled that in 'Going Rogue' - "that book her handlers wrote for her" - Palin claimed she had refused to shake his hand when they met backstage at 'Saturday Night Live'.

"But she did shake my hand," Stone insisted.

On the other hand, Palin stuck to her story, saying: "I didn't shake his hand then or tonight."

We asked her about suggestions, from people like Stone, that her beloved "everyday Americans" might have trouble relating to her reported 100,000 dollars speaking fees and demands for Lear jets.

"These stories were kind of annoying about what I asked for - bendable straws and goofy things like that. It's also bogus how much money I supposedly make," she said.(ANI)
