Over a decade ago, Sharon Stone appeared on Conan. It was an entertaining chat between the two. As per usual, Stone had to answer a question related to Basic Instinct, and it had to do with her leg crossing scene. O’Brien asked the actress how she felt about the moment becoming the most paused in film history.

Conan asks, “I believe it, but I don’t know how you feel about it. I read that Basic Instinct has the most paused moment in movie history.”

Stone hilariously responds, “Why Conan, what would that be?” She proceeds to cross her legs, which generates a major roar of approval from the audience. She continues, “I’m uncertain as to what moment we’re talking about.”

Stone ended up downplaying the situation. She said, “I’m popular.” Conan would proceed to change subjects as they discussed the hilarious moment of Stone randomly bumping into a fan in Israel who had her face on his shirt. The interview is definitely worth a look back on.

One fan appreciated how she responded to the question.

“She’s so smart.. instead of being the vulnerable one and getting cornered in ways she would have to respond, she goes ahead of people and makes all the potentially uncomfortable (to her) and outrageous jokes herself before they even have a chance. She knows she is not gonna be the target of smartass talk show hosts, but she’s gonna lead the way herself, so she disarms them completely.”

Fans were also very surprised by Stone’s comedic timing throughout the interview.

“I didn’t expect this, but she has excellent comedic timing. That last joke was pretty amazing!!”

Another fan wrote, “Sharon Stone is the bomb. How funny and clever in this single interview? Very well cast in Basic Instinct and honestly no other actor at that time could have pulled it off.”

Sharon Stone’s Actual Experience With The Leg-Crossing Scene Was A Total Nightmare

Watching the leg-crossing scene for the first time was a nightmare for Sharon Stone. She slapped Basic Instinct director Paul Verhoeven at the time.

Stone recalls, “That was how I saw my vagina-shot for the first time, long after I’d been told, ‘We can’t see anything – I just need you to remove your panties, as the white is reflecting the light, so we know you have panties on.”

“I went to the projection booth, slapped Paul across the face, left, went to my car, and called my lawyer, Marty Singer.”

Ultimately, Stone allowed the scene to remain in the film because she felt like it fit the story.

“I let Paul know of the options Marty had laid out for me. Of course, he vehemently denied that I had any choices at all. I was just an actress, just a woman; what choices could I have?” she wrote.

“But I did have choices. So I thought and thought and I chose to allow this scene in the film. Why? Because it was correct for the film and for the character; and because, after all, I did it,” Stone added.

As for director Paul Verhoeven, he claims Stone was completely fine with it, but things changed when the film was done shooting.

“Sharon is lying. Any actress knows what she’s going to see if you ask her to take off her underwear and point there with the camera.”

“I am Dutch, so we act with total normality towards nudity. And Sharon was carried away by this relaxed attitude. But when she saw the scene surrounded by other [American] people, including her agent and her publicist, she went crazy.”

It all worked out in the end, and it made for an iconic scene.
