Sharon continues to show that she is in great shape.
64-year-old American actress Sharon Stone posed for the new issue of Harper's Bazaar Spain, showing elegant images, as well as recreating a scene from the thriller “Basic Instinct”.
The actress looked much younger than her years in a black dress with ruffles and fishnet tights, legs outstretched, sitting on a stool.
Her cross-legged scene in the hit 1992 film Basic Instinct is one of the most iconic in modern cinema history.
Sharon played femme fatale Katherine Tramell in Paul Verhoeven's 1992 thriller, and Michael Douglas played Nick Curran, a disgraced San Francisco homicide detective who was convinced that Katherine, a wealthy heiress, had killed her ex-boyfriend, a rock star. In the famous interrogation scene, Sharon's character Katherine is being interrogated by the police, and the suspect distracts them when she spreads her legs, crossing them again and leaving the men in dismay as they saw that the girl was not underwear at the time.
The scene was controversial at the time, with Sharon admitting that she was lied to in order to get the shot. In her memoir, The Beauty of Life Twice, Stone described how she slapped Paul Verhoeven in rage and walked out of previews of the erotic thriller after discovering that his assurances that the moment would not appear on screen were lies and that viewers could, as she put it, “seeing all the way to Nebraska.”
For his part, Verhoeven vehemently dismissed her claims that she was caught off guard by the cross-legged scene:
“Any actress knows what she will see if you ask her to take off her underwear and point the camera there.”
Another image for Harper's Bazaar Spain shows her in a bright fur coat and equally bright eye makeup.
