Oscar-nominated actress Sharon Stone has taken the credit for raising women's salaries in Hollywood. The 47-year-old, who is reportedly earning $13.6 million (GBP8 million) for her upcoming role in Basic Instinct 2: RISK ADDICTION, believes she has helped close the gender gap. She says, "It's important to me that women get properly paid. When I started out you could not get paid a lot. "Even now, I'm not getting what Michael Douglas got the first for BASIC INSTINCT (in 1992), but I am getting quite a bit. I think I broke a few glass ceilings in my day."
