Veteran actress Sharon Stone rose to superstardom after her performance in 1992’s thriller, Basic Instinct and became famous as a sex symbol. However, it seems his career was far from simply.
Basic Instinct is a film full of sex and nudity and it included the now-iconic scene where Stone’s character was being interrogated for murder by the police. During the scene, Stone uncrossed her legs to briefly reveal that she wasn’t wearing any underwear.
While speaking to Variety, Stone revealed a lot of disturbing things in her upcoming memoir, The Beauty of Living Twice. She stated that apart from being tricked into doing that particular scene, she was also asked several times by male producers to have sex with her male co-stars.
The alleged reason for this was so that it would make the chemistry between Stone and her male co-stars better.
I felt they could have just hired a co-star with talent, someone who could deliver a scene and remember his lines. I also felt they could fuck him themselves and leave me out of it. It was my job to act and I said so. This was not a popular response. I was considered difficult.
Sharon Stone’s allegations might have far-reaching effects in the industry as sexual-related charges are taken more seriously now. Perhaps the producers will be brought to justice eventually.
