Sharon Stone has said that she repeated her iconic role as Catherine Trammell for Basic Instinct 2 because she wanted people to appreciate the sight of an older woman’s body. "By the time the film is released, I will be 48 and I wanted to do the nudity in a way that's quite brazen,” said the star. “I wanted her to be very masculine, like a man in a steam room and I wanted the audience to have a moment where they realize she's naked and then realize that she's a fortysomething woman and naked. Because we're not used to seeing that in movies. We're used to seeing Sean Connery and his granddaughter, you know what I mean? Or Mel Gibson and his daughter." Mmmm, incestuous.
