Sharon Stone for "Basic Instinct": It's clear why she got the role

As she once admitted, in order to get a role for "Basic Instinct", she was photographed for "Playboy" magazine.

"I decided to get photographed for 'Playboy' especially because I wanted a role in 'Basic Instinct,'" Sharon said, adding:

"I didn't understand what would happen when I made that film. I think it was the right role for me and I knew I had to get it. I didn't have enough perspective to understand what was happening," the actress said.

Sharon Stone also fascinated at the audition, where she delighted, and definitely got the role that made her famous.

Although it brought her world fame, she did not make that much money

Namely, in an interview for CBC, where she promoted her new memoirs called "The Beauty of Living Twice", Sharon stated that she did not earn so much from the role in "Basic Instinct".

Although she did not want to say what the figure was, it is said that it was allegedly a sum of 500,000 dollars.

On the other hand, Michael Douglas, who was largely a movie star, received serious money from his role in "Basic Instinct". As much as $ 14 million.

"I wasn't paid to act in 'Basic Instinct', I got a little money. Michael earned $ 14 million and bonuses. I didn't earn enough money to buy a dress for the next Oscars," said Sharon, but she stated that the role brought her world fame.

During the conversation, she also recalled the inconvenience she experienced at the Cannes Film Festival in 1992.

"I went back to the hotel and all my things were stolen except the clothes I was wearing. My contact lenses, the tape from the film camera, my toothbrush, everything was gone," said Sharon Stone.

The actress points out that she had unprecedented popularity at the time, and that she had great support from her colleague Shirley MacLaine, who, as Sharon said, treated her like a human being.
