Sharon Stone 'Recreated' Famous Scene From 'Basic Instinct' At Award Show

Sharon Stone is an icon of our time, who has played in some iconic roles, including the movie Basic Instinct.

Unfortunately, that movie caused people to not take her completely seriously, but Sharon didn't rest until she was recognized in Hollywood for her amazing acting skills rather than just her looks.

Her role in Basic Instinct definitely made people sexualize her, but she turned it into something to empower her, and she definitely showcased that at the awards.

At the GQ Awards for Men of the Year, Sharon Stone delivered a speech.

While doing so, she recreated her famous leg-crossing scene from her very famous movie Basic Instinct.

But without the flashing, of course. That is just another example of how she can make any role of hers that was purely to sexualize her and turn it into a modern empowering moment.

Sharon Stone had this to say about the iconic scene during speech:

“Some years ago I was sitting on a sound stage, and my director said, ‘Can you hand me your underpants because we’re seeing them in the scene and you shouldn’t have underpants on but we won’t see anything,”

She continued by saying:

“I said, ‘Sure.’ I didn’t know this moment would change my life.”

Luckily, she didn't stay stuck in the eyes of Hollywood as the woman who flashed people. She truly took Hollywood by storm and made sure people remembered her name for her fierce personality.

Here's the video to watch for yourself!

While she is obviously beautiful, I think it's important to note just how powerful she is. She has the entire audience in the palm of her hands.
