Sharon Stone says Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci are two of the few non-misogynistic co-stars she’s ever had

Sharon Stone believes there aren't many non-misogynistic men in Hollywood, calling out two of her previous co-stars as a couple of 'the good guys'.
Stone, 65, is best known for her iconic turn in 1992's Basic Instinct, not least because of that X-rated interrogation scene.

She stars in the film as crime novelist Catherine, who wrote a book with an eerily similar plot to the real-life murder of her rock star boyfriend - although the main hook of the movie isn't the case itself, but the ongoing sexual tension with the detective investigating her case, Michael Douglas' Nick Curran.

Since then, Stone has taken on a number of high profile roles, including one in the Martin Scorsese hit Casino.

It turns out this film was a memorable for all the right reasons, as revealed when the actor opened up shooting the flick in an interview with Variety, following her recent Saturday Night Live appearance alongside Sam Smith.

When asked about the performance, she replied: "I’ve worked with some of the biggest stars in the business, who will literally talk through my close-up, telling me what they think I should do. They’re so misogynistic."
Stone pointed out that this doesn't include Robert De Niro or Joe Pesci, who she worked with on Casino.

"That is not those guys," she explained. "But I have worked with some really big stars who will literally talk out loud through my close-up, telling me what to do.

"They just will not listen to me, and will not allow me to affect their performance with my performance. That’s not great acting.

"I mean, I get that you’re great and everybody thinks you’re wonderful. But listening, being present for those fractured moments, is really the human experience."

Stone continued: "I am not the most popular actor in town, because people don’t want to hear my, as they say, f**king opinions... maybe because of my devotion, maybe because I’m just kind of a weirdo.

"But I’m just in it to be present."

And this is exactly what she was able to bring to her performance with Smith, who performed their song 'Gloria' with Stone in the foreground.
Stone also previously revealed that she was never 'comfortable' around Douglas while filming Basic Instinct – but that was actually the whole point, as she deliberately didn't get to know the actor too well so that any tension between the pair behind the scenes could carry through to their performances in front of the camera.

She said: "I had met him on two or three occasions in social situations before I tested with him for this movie.

"I really felt that he and I could have a certain strange, dynamic energy together. I was never comfortable around him, and I don’t think he was comfortable around me.

"It was a primal thing for me. It was all about watching him, observing his movements, provoking him."

It clearly worked, considering how iconic the movie became, with Stone saying their 'energy together was strong' and that the tension between the pair 'works very well' on screen.
