According to Sharon Stone, she lost custody of her child as a result of a scene in the movie Basic Instinct.

In her 2004 divorce case, the presiding judge had inquired of the four-year-old whether he knew his mother did “sex pictures,” which the actor Sharon Stone claimed led to her losing custody of her son due to judicial bias. “.

On the Table for Two podcasts, Stone claimed that the custody dispute over her son Roan, whom she had adopted in 2000 with her then-husband Phil Bronstein, was “weaponized against her” due to her participation in Paul Verhoeven’s psychological thriller Basic Instinct.

Stone claimed, “I was not allowed to have custody of my child. “I was asked what kind of parent I was because I made that movie when the judge asked my young son, ‘Do you know your mother makes sex movies?’ Like, this kind of system abuse. “.

Stone continued, citing the infamous interrogation scene from Basic Instinct in which her genitalia are briefly displayed.

“People are walking around naked on regular television now, and you saw maybe a sixteenth of a second of possible nudity from me – and I lost custody of my child,” she said. Is this serious?

For her now-22-year-old son, Stone was given visitation rights. She claimed that the judge’s decision led to her being admitted to the hospital later that year with cardiac issues. Stone continued, “That broke my heart. “That ripped open my heart. “.

Stone’s lengthy career in Basic Instinct has been defined by the glancing nudity. When the actress’ name was announced as a candidate at the 1993 Golden Globes ceremony, colleagues laughed, and the actor expressed disappointment.

“How horrible that was. Stone acknowledged, “I felt so humiliated. How heartbreaking and terrifying it must have been to portray that scene, asks someone.

“To carry the weight of this sophisticated film, which was pushing the boundaries and against which everyone was rebelling. I spent nine months interviewing for it. They gave it to 13 other people, and now you’re making fun of me. My only desire was to scurry into a hole. “.

The Beauty of Living Again, Stone’s autobiography, was released last year. She reaffirmed her belief that Verhoeven tricked her into exposing herself, claiming she was unaware that such a shot would be used until she was in a screening with agents and attorneys.

“It was the first time I saw my naked shot, long after being told, ‘We can’t see anything – I just need you to remove your underwear, as the white reflects the light, so we know you have panties on,'” Stone wrote. “Now, here’s the issue. That wasn’t important anymore. Me and my pieces were all that was up there. It was time for me to choose. “.

She allegedly went to the projection booth after that and smacked Verhoeven across the face. She was always aware of the nudity, he has long claimed.
