Sharon Stone’s Confession Continues
after claiming that she had lost In a speech at the Women’s Cancer Research Fund fundraising event this month, Stone said she also had a cutout in the film. Her new line of “Basic Instinct”
Stone revealed at the 43rd annual New York Women In Film & Television Muse Awards that she only made $500,000 for the 1992 sex thriller.
“Michael Douglas made $14 million. I am new now I’m new and he’s a big star,” she told a crowd of mostly female film and TV executives on Tuesday.
Stone also described how she faced scorn from the project chain directed by Paul Verhoeven, who often incorrectly referred to her as Karen throughout “the entire film.”
“Even at the Governor’s Ball (after the Oscars), he kept calling me ‘Karen!’ and I carried a deep humiliation inside of me, even though my name wasn’t on the poster,” she said.
Stone was honored with eight other women, including “The Piano Lesson” star Daniel Brooks, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Janet Yang, “Slumdog Millionaire” starring Freida Pinto and Sandra Lee
Lee brought fiancée Ben Youcef as her arm candy to the luncheon. The spy caught him refusing Cipriani’s food and water because he was fasting in Ramadan.
Lee took the stage and credited Stone as saying, “My best advice” when she sits next to her on the plane. Before she was known as a lifestyle TV host and activist.
She said that Stone had told her at the time that “’Make sure your hair is never perfect’”
“It hasn’t been perfect since you said that,” Lee quipped.
Stone confirmed the meeting during her acceptance speech, saying, “Yes, Sandra and I were on a plane together… And I told her to give more than you take. and you do it I am very proud,” she said.
The whole room applauded and lightly laughed. As Stone told from a recent Vanity Fair Oscar party about how her friend, “Sarah Paulson, said to me, ‘Why is everyone so angry with you?’”
“I think you guys know why everyone is so mad at me,” the Hollywood thug told the crowd.
“Thank you,” she smiled before taking credit for being one of the few women. “To say the fancy word ‘no’ so the rest of us can say yes,” she said.
Stone just choked on tears at a fundraiser. The Women’s Cancer Research Fund’s “Unforgettable Evening” when she told the shocked crowd at a charity gala that “I know what you have to do and figure out how to send money messages is difficult. I’m a technical idiot. But I could write an af-king check, and now that’s courage too. ’cause I know what’s going on I just lost half of my money to this bank.”
