Watch Sharon Stone’s Basic Instinct Audition
Sharon Stone must’ve been feeling nostalgic this week. The Oscar nominated actress shared via social media and using the hashtag #WaybackWednesday, her official audition tape of herself with Basic Instinct movie director Paul Verhoeven (who was standing in for Michael Douglas). Watch as stone taunts, teases and tries to sexually intimidate her male counterpart as writer Catherine Tramell.
It was not an easy part to get,” said Stone. “They offered it to 12 or 13 other women who turned it down. So it wasn’t like I got there and everyone was like, ‘Yay, she’s here!’ It was like, ‘Mm.’ But I knew walking on that set that I was enough.”
Watch her audition below:
