Sharon Stone wants you to know that her nude scenes in Basic Instinct 2 are probably going to scare the hell out of you. In an interview with The Evening Standard, Stone described her full frontal nude scene as "startling," "distrubing," "threatening," "brazen," and even "masculine." Eww.
"Yes, there are scandalous things in the film," Stone admits. "Yes, there are evocative sexual moments."
Then, of course, there's the essential Stone full-frontal, which comes about two-thirds of the way through the film, in a Jacuzzi with Morrissey. "I felt we should hold off on the full nudity for a while in the movie and then I thought that when I ultimately did do the nude scene it should be done in a startling way that would be disturbing and threatening," she says.
"By the time the film is released, I will be 48 and I wanted to do the nudity in a way that's quite brazen. I wanted her to be very masculine, like a man in a steam room, and I wanted the audience to have a moment where they realise she's naked and then realise she's a fortysomething woman and naked. Because we're not used to seeing that in movies. We're used to seeing Sean Connery and his granddaughter, you know what I mean? Or Mel Gibson and his daughter."
I don't know what Sharon Stone has been smoking, but describing your own body as masculine probably isn't the best way to promote a film that is only noteworthy because of the nudity. And what's with the incestuous remarks about Sean Connery? Is she just trying to make everyone throw up?
Here are some pictures of Sharon Stone at the premiere of Basic Instinct 2, looking rather old, scary, and decidedly unsexy. More after the jump.
