Sharon Stone has been keeping it steamy on the big screen for about three decades, and while her latest movie "Lovelace" is about a woman who ultimately escapes being exploited for the cameras, Stone thinks Hollywood actresses need to buck up and start showing off their nether regions much more readily.
Yah. Apparently, Ms. Stone — who's put her money where her you-know-whats are and produces a gajillion Google Image results for nudey shots, most famously in "Basic Instinct" — thinks it's totally not cool what these new-age actresses have been up to with their little camera angling tricks and use of modesty tape and whatnot.
"I feel that it's so disappointing in films when you see the comforter taped to someone's chest. It takes you out of the scene and doesn't protect you from something within the scene," she told SFGate. "My 'Lovelace' co-star Peter Sarsgaard said, 'When I'm in bed with someone and I get up to go to the bathroom, I don't take the comforter with me.'"
As for the argument that actresses' daddies are probably going to see them in their movies and would rather not find their little girls spread eagle in high def, well, Stone says tough s**t. When her own papa asked her, "Do you really have to be naked all the time?" after seeing "Basic Instinct," she brutally replied, "Well, yeah! I'm playing a sociopathic sexual serial killer!"
According to Stone, a performer's birthday suit "really is the costume of your character. What else are you gonna do? It seems foolish to do something else ... If you're inauthentically naked then it's distracting to the audience when you are naked."
