Sharon Stone Recreates Basic Instinct Pose: 'I Didn't Know That This Moment Would Change My Life'

Sharon Stone is recreating her iconic pose — with a powerful message on sexual empowerment.

The 61-year-old actress accepted GQ’ s Woman of the Year award on Thursday night where she had Billy Porter bring out a chair on stage for her so she could recreate her famous leg-crossing scene from Basic Instinct .

Stone concluded her speech with, “I want to say thank you for choosing me to be Woman of the Year because there was a time when all I was was a joke.”

The star previously recreated her Basic Instinct pose for Vogue Portugal ’s May issue where she revealed she had to brand herself as a sex symbol in order to attain work as an actress when she was first starting out.

Stone said she “strategically planned” a Playboy photoshoot just as her breakout film Total Recall was released in 1990.

She added, “I gave this some hard thought as I wanted to work, so I did a strategically planned semi-naked Playboy shoot.
