The actress said she could not even buy a decent dress to attend the Oscars.
Sharon Stone said she felt her fee for her role in Basic Instinct was miserable, according to CBC News. The actress is still jealous of Michael Douglas, who was paid $14 million for his participation in the same film. According to media reports, Sharon was paid $500 thousand.
Now she asserts that the money was not enough even to buy a decent outfit for the Oscar ceremony, where she was awarded. Stone said she felt weird that she became famous thanks to the movie and “didn’t have any money”. Sharon also complained about the psychological trauma of filming a movie by Paul Verhoeven. She suffered from nightmares and sleepwalking and on several occasions found that in her sleep she got dressed and got into the car, to go somewhere.
