She’s best known for that scene in Basic Instinct – and it appears that Sharon Stone still lives by the maxim if you’ve got it, flaunt it, on the set of a recent movie.The star stripped down to a tiny bikini in low-budget comedy Five Bucks A Day, directed by Calendar Girls and Made In Dagenham British film maker Nigel Cole.
In fact, the budget seems to have been so low that the props department couldn’t afford to loan Sharon a handbag.
Well, that’s one explanation for why she has a packet of cigarettes and a lighter tucked into her bikini bottoms.
Most onlookers would be forgiven instead for marvelling at the 52-year-old’s still toned body.
Five Bucks A Day also stars Christopher Walken, Alessandro Nivola, Amanda Peet and former Superman star Dean Cain.
Although made in 2008, it only got a limited release last year, but is now out on DVD.
Meanwhile, Pixie Lott has been lined up to star Ms Stone’s daughter in forthcoming new movie Sweet Baby Jesus.
The 19-year-old said of the film, in which she co-stars with Adrien Brody and Bette Midler: ‘It’s crazy, isn’t it?
‘It’s a comedy about a man named Joe who accompanies his pregnant girlfriend Mary to Bethlehem, where the villagers assume they are the second coming.’
Sweet Baby Jesus is expected to start filming within the next couple of months and comes out next year.
Coincidentally, Sharon stars alongside Brody in another forthcoming film project.
Waco, based on the real-life events sparked by cult leader David Koresh in 1993, also stars Kurt Russell. It’s due out next year.
