Sharon Stone, a star of the 90s, attracts attention by her appearance and her statements every single day. "Basic Instinct" was the movie that brought her the most success and fame. The 43rd Muse Awards were held in New York on Sunday, and Sharon Stone revealed a few new details about the movie "Basic Instinct" that made her famous in 1992.
While the movie was a huge hit, Stone surprised many when she revealed how much she earned despite the popularity of the movie "At the time, I was still new in the world of acting, and Michel Douglas was a big star. At the time, I earned only 500 thousand dollars whereas Michel Douglas earned 14 million dollars," Stone said.
Sharon Stone was frustrated
There was one particular thing that irritated her about the producer, which was the fact that she was called Karen. There was a feeling within her that she was not respected enough. Despite this, she received many things from that movie that made her life better.
"Even at the Governor's Ball, which was held after the Oscars, he called me Karen. I really felt humiliated, even though my name was not on the poster," she said. During the course of its release, "Basic Instinct" was shown in many countries in a censored version that did not contain scenes of sex and murder.
In spite of this, the movie managed to achieve great success. The movie is still remembered by many people with nostalgia, and it is regarded as one of the greatest films in the history of cinema. It earned more than 15 million dollars in the first weekend of its release, and the movie went on to earn more than 350 million dollars in total.
There is no doubt that the production of the film required a great deal of money. Her role and the way in which she played it impressed many, and it led her to even greater success in the future.
