After starring in the movie 'Basic Instinct' in 1992, Sharon Stone was left in a kind of "strange limbo" because she had become an unmistakable face for the general public, but she barely had any money.

This was due to being paid a fraction of the salary that his co-star Michael Douglas received, just for being a woman. A perfect example of the precarious situation she found herself in is that she couldn't even pay out of pocket for her outfit for the first Oscars she attended as a rising star.

"I didn't get paid to do 'Basic Instinct.' I made a little money, but Michael took $14 million. I didn't make enough to buy my own dress to go to the Oscars the next year. I was suddenly famous, but I had no money," she revealed on the CBC program 'Q With Tom Power'.

Although Sharon Stone has never wanted to reveal exactly how much she charged, the figure has always been rumored to be around $ 500,000. In any case, it was not enough to hire a security device to protect her or buy a dress.
