Sharon Stone has revealed that she first saw her infamous crotch shot scene in Basic Instinct in a screening room with agents and lawyers — after being assured that filmgoers wouldn’t see anything when she was asked to remove her underwear. 

The 63-year-old movie star has opened up about her experiences as a woman in Hollywood in her new memoir, The Beauty of Living Twice, sharing shocking stories about how she was once advised to ‘f*** my co-star’ for better onscreen chemistry and repeatedly called the wrong name by her Basic Instinct director.   

But perhaps the most startling revelation of all was that Stone’s star-making scene in the 1992 film was far more explicit than she had anticipated, with the actress claiming she had no idea she was baring all when it was filmed.

‘After we shot Basic Instinct, I got called in to see it,’ she wrote in the excerpt published by . ‘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. 

‘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.”‘

In the unforgettable scene, Stone’s femme fatale character — crime writer Catherine Tramell — is being interrogated by the police wearing a form-fitting white mini dress. She is smoking and recounting her sexual encounters when she seductively crosses her legs and flashes the dumbstruck investigators in front of her.  

Director Paul Verhoeven has denied that he exploited Stone, who was 34 when the film was released, claiming that she knew what she was doing in the scene and was into it.
