Sharon Stone says she was tricked into flashing in THAT Basic Instinct leg scene and was told to ‘f*** her co-star’

SHARON Stone has claimed she was tricked into flashing during the infamous leg scene in Basic Instinct.

The actress, 63, alleged that she was told to take off her underwear because the "white was reflecting the light" – and that a crew member insisted her private parts would not be visible on film.

Sharon's character Catherine Tramell uncrosses her legs without wearing underwear several times during a police interrogation in the 1992 thriller.

She reflected on the upsetting experience in her new memoir, The Beauty Of Living Twice, in an extract obtained by Vanity Fair.

The star said she had no idea her private parts were actually on show and slapped director Paul Verhoeven when she saw the final cut.

The Oscar nominee claimed she was called in for the viewing with "a room full of agents and lawyers, most of whom had nothing to do with the project".


"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,'" she wrote.

"Yes, there have been many points of view on this topic, but since I'm the one with the vagina, in question, let me say: The other points of view are bulls**t. It was me and my parts up there.

After the viewing, she slapped director "Paul across the face, left, went to my car, and called my lawyer, Marty Singer."

Marty allegedly told Sharon that the film could not be shown in line with the Screen Actors Guild.

"It wasn't legal to shoot up my dress in this fashion," she wrote.

"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."

Paul, 82, denied Sharon's allegations back in 2017, claiming: "Sharon is lying.

“Any actress knows what she’s going to see if you ask her to take off her underwear and point there with the camera.”

The Casino actress also described the sexist treatment she faced before doing Basic Insinct.

She alleged that one producer that her to "f*** my costar so that we could have onscreen chemistry".

Sharon – who has three adopted sons, Roan, 20, Laird, 15, and 14-year old Quinn – maintains a good rapport with her Basic Instinct costar Michael Douglas.

The actor, 76, wished her a happy 63rd birthday earlier this month while sharing a photo of them from the film.

 "Happy Birthday to my #BasicInstinct costar @sharonstone! Hope you have a wonderful and safe time celebrating Sharon!" the Oscar winner wrote.
