Sharon Stone is speaking out about her experience in Hollywood.
The Oscar-nominated actress recounts being pressured by a studio executive to sleep with her male co-star in order to improve their chemistry in her new memoir, The Beauty of Living Twice, per Variety.
Sharon writes that an unnamed male producer “explained to me why I should f-ck my co-star so that we could have onscreen chemistry.”
“Why, in his day, he made love to Ava Gardner onscreen and it was so sensational! Now just the creepy thought of him in the same room with Ava Gardner gave me pause. Then I realized that she also had to put up with him and pretend that he was in any way interesting,” she continues.
Sharon adds, “‘You guys insisted on this actor when he couldn’t get one whole scene out in the test… Now you think if I f-ck him, he will become a fine actor?’ Nobody’s that good in bed.”
The actress also says that her refusal to sleep with the actor ultimately had an impact on her reputation.
“I felt they could have just hired a co-star with talent, someone who could deliver a scene and remember his lines. I also felt they could f-ck him themselves and leave me out of it. It was my job to act and I said so. This was not a popular response. I was considered difficult,” Sharon says.
Sharon also opened up about being tricked into not wearing underwear for her famous scene in Basic Instinct.
