The movie ‘Bajos Instintos’ was a phenomenon after its premiere in 1992, due in large part to the sexual charge it contained, with a mythical scene by Sharon Stone, of which the actress does not have very good memories, because years later she lost custody of her son as a result of that recording that catapulted her into the movies.
The feature film directed by Paul Verhoeven had the fleeting and “suggestive” scene, where Stone crossed her legs and revealed her nakedness, Without a doubt, it is part of the history of cinema. But for the actress, it represents a dark moment that she has revealed decades later.
The actress, who, in 2000, adopted Roan with her then-husband Phil Bronstein, told the podcast ‘Table for two’ (Table for two) that a judge took away custody of her little boy because of the movie. In 2004 Stone divorced Bronstein, it was then that he used the film to question what kind of mother she was.
“The judge asked my son, my little boy: ‘Did you know that your mother makes sex movies?’ As a kind of abuse by the system, considering what kind of mother she was for having made that movie, ”the actress related in the podcast.
She also said that losing the legal battle for Roan made her enter the hospital for heart problems. “I was admitted to the clinic with ventricular extrasystole in the upper and lower chambers of the heart. He broke my heart. It literally broke my heart,” she recounted.
A couple of years ago, in her memoirs, Sharon revealed that she was “tricked” into not wearing underwear during the recording of that scene. “You can’t see anything. I just need you to take off your panties because white reflects light”, was what they told him at the time of filming.
Decades after losing custody of her son, she maintains an excellent relationship with him, despite the court decision. That scene catapulted her to fame and also caused her conflicts with various sectors of Hollywood.
