Sharon Stone has claimed that an actor screamed that he couldn’t “see her t**s” while she filmed her first ever nude scene.
Speaking to Hollywood star Jake Picking for the August issue of Attitude Magazine, Stone recalled how she could have benefited from “intimacy coordinators” as a young actor.
The role, which has emerged in recent years on TV series including I May Destroy You and Normal People, exists to make actors feel comfortable on set while filming sexual scenes that involve intimacy or nudity.
“They didn’t have [intimacy coordinators] in my day,” Stone said. “When I did my first movie, which was Irreconcilable Differences, I had a topless scene. And they didn’t even clear the set. Everybody’s on set, like a million people on the set. And I take off my top and this actor screams, ‘Would you get out of the f***ing way? I can’t even see her t**s.’
“I [was] so terrified. You know when you can hear your heartbeat in your ears? That’s all I could hear. And I hear him scream, ‘Get out of the way. I can’t see her f***ing t**s.’ I’m just like, talk about no intimacy coordinator.”
Stone played an aspiring actor discovered at a hot dog stand in the 1984 comedy, which also starred Ryan O’Neal, Shelley Long and a young Drew Barrymore.
Stone claimed in 2019 that filmmaker Paul Verhoeven asked her to ‘hand him her underpants’ before filming her famous leg-uncrossing scene in 1992’s Basic Instinct.
The new issue of Attitude Magazine, which also features Rufus Wainwright and a special on trans lives, is on sale now.
