Sharon Stone reveals she was told to sleep with co-star to “build chemistry”
March 19, 2021
Sharon Stone revealed in her new memoir ‘The Beauty of Loving Twice’ that her ‘Basic Instinct’ producer said she should have sex with with her co-star to build chemistry.
In a recent excerpt published by Vanity Fair;
“After we shot ‘Basic Instinct’, I got called in to see it. Not on my own with the director, as one would anticipate, given the situation that has given us all pause, so to speak, but with a room full of agents and lawyers, most of whom had nothing to do with the project,” said Stone.
She also said he tricked her into exposing her private part;
“That was how I saw my vagina-shot for the first time, long after I’d been told, ‘We can’t see anything—I just need you to remove your panties, as the white is reflecting the light, so we know you have panties on.'”
“First, at that time, this would give the film an X rating. Remember, this was 1992, not now, when we see erect penises on Netflix. And, Marty said, per the Screen Actors Guild, my union, it wasn’t legal to shoot up my dress in this fashion. Whew, I thought,” Stone wrote.
“After the screening, I let Paul know of the options Marty had laid out for me. Of course, he vehemently denied that I had any choices at all. I was just an actress, just a woman; what choices could I have?”
“But I did have choices. So I thought and thought and I chose to allow this scene in the film. Why? Because it was correct for the film and for the character; and because, after all, I did it.”
Hmm,that’s really messed up. I guess that is Hollywood for you.
