Sex role in ‘basic instinct’ cost me custody of my son – Sharon Stone
Hollywood multiple award-winning actress Sharon Stone has revealed one of her best works as an actress would come at the cost of her son with the ordeal leading to her decision to avoid similar roles in the future
According to the actress, a judge once asked her then-four-year-old son “Do you know your mother makes sex movies?” and admitted it was one of the most embarrassing moments in her life
Sharon Stone and her then-husband Ron Bronstein had adopted the boy in 2000 but after the pair had divorced and gone their separate ways, the judge would award custody to her ex-husband, a move she believes was a result of her role in ‘basic instinct’ which ironically earned her accolades and this would affect her health “I ended up in the Mayo Clinic with extra heartbeats in my upper and lower chamber of my heart. It literally broke my heart.”
In retrospect, Sharon feels she was treated too excessively considering how widespread nudity has become in movies.
The actress also recalled an award ceremony where everyone laughed off at the mention of her name which she admits got to her and would affect her immensely “I got nominated for a Golden Globe for that part, and when I went to the Golden Globes and they called my name, a bunch of people in the room laughed. I was so humiliated! I was like, does anybody have any idea how hard it was to play that part? How gut-wrenching and frightening?”
The actress would conclude by adding the ordeal had left her not wanting anything to do with such roles again but however, advised the audience to stop confusing the characters with who they are in real life
