The GQ Men of the Year Awards got a scandalous dose of movie history, thanks to Sharon Stone.
Appearing at the award show in Berlin on Thursday night, the 61-year-old actress took home the Woman of the Year Award, and she decided to give the audience an acceptance speech they wouldn’t soon forget.
Stone made her way up on stage, but rather than stand for her speech she sat down in a chair, the Daily Mail reported.
Then, while delivering the speech, she recreated the famous leg-crossing interrogation scene from her 1992 erotic thriller “Basic Instinct”, though she didn’t actually flash anyone.
“Some years ago I was sitting on a sound stage, and my director said, ‘Can you hand me your underpants because we’re seeing them in the scene and you shouldn’t have underpants on but we won’t see anything,” Stone recalled in her speech.
“I said, ‘Sure.’ I didn’t know this moment would change my life.”
