Sharon Stone Slapped Director Paul Verhoeven After Seeing Basic Instinct Legs Uncrossed Privates Reveal

If you haven’t seen Basic Instinct (1992), you might have heard about the scene involving Sharon Stone uncrossing her legs and leaving her exposed privates in clear view. After almost 30 years, we thought Stone was on board with how that went down.

Turns out she had no idea this would ever end up on film, despite taking her panties off for the shoot because of alleged camera reflection issues.

Following the screening, Stone says she headed into the projection booth, “slapped Paul across the face, left, went to my car, and called my lawyer, Marty Singer.” Singer advised her that the film could not be released in its current form—at the time, the interrogation scene would have landed Basic Instinct an X rating—and that if she wished, she could “get an injunction” to stop its release. Upon further reflection, Stone says she spoke with Verhoeven about the discussion she’d had with her attorney. “Of course, he vehemently denied that I had any choices at all,” she wrote. “I was just an actress, just a woman; what choices could I have?

Sure enough, after reading the Basic Instinct Wikipedia page production notes, the story is revealed there. Who do we believe, Stone or Verhoeven? In Stone’s new book coming out, and on a promotional tour, readers are asked to believe Stone.

Stone has been noteworthy as a sex symbol in films for a long time. This is either from her own choices taking roles like in this erotic thriller or what films she’s been cast in, but she didn’t deserve this type of treatment. I’ve noticed a trend of news stories always coming out around these book launches. Seems like if you want to get news for you book, you put in juicy stories that will make headlines, then watch the bonus promotion come in.

This is neither condemnation or agreeance with Stone’s claims, but it seems that when we should be talking about how good her acting performances have been, instead we’re being subjected to what happened to her behind the camera.

Robert De Niro is “far and away the best kisser” says Sharon Stone

Casino ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½

Talk about serious violation of the no kiss and tell covenant.

Stone worked with De Niro in the movie Martin Scorsese’s epic Casino as a whale (large gambler) hustler who earns De Niro’s eye and affection.

“It was the actor that I admired the most and had, my whole career, was like, ‘I just want to sit across the table from Robert De Niro and hold my own.’ And maybe because I just held him in such extraordinary, high regard, and it was the pinnacle of the kissing moment for me. There was so much attached to it,” Stone said. “But I was just so madly in love with him as an actress to start with, that, you know, he probably could have hit me in the head with a hammer and I would have been like, ‘Oh, yeah!’ You know, but it was pretty fabulous.”

Considering Stone’s history as a sex symbol and the amount of lips she’s kissed throughout her busy career in Hollywood, this is a curious admission.

Then again, it seems like she was more in awe of De Niro’s talent than other many other actors she’s worked with. Almost like student meets idolized teacher. In that sense, maybe this isn’t a fair comparison.

Saw another story this past week about Gene Kelly deep french kissing Debbie Reynolds to her horror in the famous movie Singing In The Rain.

“The camera closed in. Gene took me tightly in his arms…and shoved his tongue down my throat. ‘Eeew! What was that?,’ I screeched, breaking free of his grasp and spitting.

I ran around frantic, yelling for some Coca-Cola to cleanse my mouth. It was the early 1950s, and I was an innocent kid who had never been French-kissed. It felt like an assault. I was stunned that this 39-year-old man would do this to me.”

Debbie Reynolds was 19 at the time. Wouldn’t she want mouthwash? Given this is a long time ago, but Coca-cola as mouthwash?

In some ways, this reminds me of the lecherous doctor portrayed in the soap opera inside the movie Tootsie who delighted in kissing all the new women. It was some sort of creepy initiation.

In TV game shows, Richard Dawson was once the king of kissing

When it comes to kissing, probably nobody does it better than Family Feud host kisser extraordinaire, the late Richard Dawson.

Those kisses were all for “good luck” according to Dawson.

I’m having fun with this post, in case you haven’t noticed. So much darkness in the movie-related news lately that we need some levity for balance.

Play along with me. Is De Niro really the best kisser in the biz working today? How could we ever validate or invalidate this statement? Thanks Sharon 😉
