By Jabeen Waheed For Mailonline. Not so Basic! Sharon said she did a 'strategically planned' racy Playboy shoot in to coincide with the release of sci-fi thriller Total Recall, in which she appeared opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger, to change the perception of her as an actress. The decision worked as it led to her being cast in her most famous role - Basic Instinct. They thought I was not. Did I fit the part?
How Sharon Stone's Basic Instinct Interrogation Scene Was Filmed
Did I fit the part? Obviously not. You bet. So no, is the answer. I didn't and I don't [feel like a sex symbol]. Uncensored cover on real life, get yours on newsstands. A post shared by Sofia Lucas sofia.
The crossing or, technically, uncrossing of legs that shook the world has not aged at all. The mouse and the cat have never been so in heat. Catherine is the only one who enjoys the situation. Oh, and millions of spectators. Sex and the desire of it corrupts every shot until it almost melts the celluloid of a movie that became an instant classic.

Verhoeven pitched the uncrossed legs moment to Stone, who loved the idea.

There were only the director, the DP and a couple of other crew members present, and Verhoeven shot the moment from a couple of different angles.
