Sharon Stone Names Co-Star: Sharon Stone is coming clean about some rather shady conduct in Hollywood.

In her 2021 book, “The Beauty of Living Twice,” the “Casino” actress alluded to an event in which a producer advised her to engage in sexual relations with a co-star in order to ameliorate the actor’s subpar acting, while preserving the identities of both parties involved.

However, during Tuesday’s episode of the “Louis Theroux Podcast,” Stone disclosed that the incident happened while making her 1993 picture “Sliver.” Producer Robert Evans allegedly instructed her to have an affair with Billy Baldwin in order to boost Baldwin’s underwhelming performance.

The films “Chinatown” (1974), “Urban Cowboys” (1980), and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” (2003) were all produced by Evans, who passed away in 2019 at the age of 89.

On Tuesday, Baldwin addressed Stone’s remarks on X (previously Twitter) by asking whether Stone holds any lingering feelings for Baldwin, asking, “Is she still hurt after all these years because I shunned her advances?” “But I’ve kept quiet,” he says, adding that he had “so much dirt” on her.

Earlier on Tuesday, Stone discussed the event with Theroux in depth.

“He’s rushing around his office in sunglasses saying to me that he slept with Ava Gardner, and I should sleep with Billy Baldwin,” Stone added of Evans, who was mentioned 39 minutes into the podcast broadcast. Why? Because Billy Baldwin’s acting would improve if I slept with him. The issue was Billy, so we needed him to improve in the film.

“If I could sleep with Billy, then we would have chemistry on screen, and if I would just have sex with him then that would save the movie,” Evans allegedly reasoned with Stone.

According to Stone, Baldwin’s poor performance wasn’t the main problem with the film in Evans’s opinion.

The true issue with the film, according to Stone, was her nervousness and lack of charisma, which prevented her from fucking the lead actor and resolving the conflict, as she recalled to Theroux. “The main issue is that I was very possessive.”

After acting opposite Michael Douglas in 1992’s “Basic Instinct,” Stone claimed she felt humiliated upon hearing Evans’ demand.

There was no need for Stone to fuck Michael Douglas, she stated. If Michael had practiced and shown up to work, he would have no trouble hitting those marks or performing that line. Suddenly, I’m involved in the “I have to fuck people” industry.

The studios frequently disregarded Stone’s “actor approval” of the people cast in her films, which was “to the detriment of the picture, sometimes,” according to Vanity Fair’s publication of parts from Stone’s memoir.

An unnamed co-star (later identified as Baldwin) “couldn’t get one whole scene out in the test,” according to Stone’s clip.

“So, you’re saying that he’ll make a great actor after I fuck him?” “No one is that nice in bed,” she wrote. I thought they might have gotten by with an actor who was talented enough to carry out a scene and keep his lines straight. They could fuck him and I wouldn’t have to worry about a thing. Acting was my responsibility, and I made that clear.

In his extensive and scathing reaction to Stone’s comments on X Tuesday, Baldwin posted a still image from “Silver” showing his character engaging in sexual relations with Stone’s character.


Baldwin claims in his statement that he overheard Stone expressing her attraction to him to her friend, the model Janice Dickenson.

“Did she mention it to her gal pal Janice Dickinson the day after I finished screen testing? We ran into each other on our flight back to New York on the MGM Grand…” “I will cause him to fall head over heels for me, it will be overwhelming for him.”

Continuing, he said, “The story of the meeting I had with Bob Evans imploring him to allow me to choreograph the final sex scene in the photo below so I wouldn’t have to kiss Sharon is absolute legend.”

“Should I put Sharon’s numerous disturbing, kinky, and unprofessional stories into a book?” “That could be a lot of fun.”
