Sharon Stone shared her 'Basic Instinct' audition tape, and it's as sinister as you'd think
On Wednesday, the actress shared an audition tape for "Basic Instinct" on Twitter. In the video, she's reading lines with director Paul Verhoeven, who's standing in for her co-star, Michael Douglas.
In the 1992 film, Stone plays Catherine Tramell, an author whose books are eerily similar to crimes she's connected to. A detective (Michael Douglas) interrogates her as a suspect for a brutal murder and can't figure out if she did it, while simultaneously falling in love with her.
