Stone Fought For Sex Scenes
SHARON STONE fought with BASIC INSTINCT 2: RISK ADDICTION director MICHAEL CATON-JONES after she discovered her raunchiest sex scenes had been edited out. The CASINO beauty reprises her role as murderous novelist CATHERINE TRAMELL in the long-awaited sequel to the original 1992 thriller, and was horrified when sexy sequences were cut to ensure the film received an NC-17 rating in America, meaning only 17s and over can see it. Stone says, "I wanted a lot of sex in the sequel. "I was coming from a really kinky place. I wanted more nudity. "When I saw the rough cut of the film they had taken a lot of stuff out and I asked, 'Where's all the crazy stuff I did? What are we toning it down for?' "I said, 'Let's go crazy.' So we took some things out of the film and a lot of the kinky stuff and sex went back in - you'll see it."
