Sharon Stone reveals why she REQUESTED to be naked in classic comedy The Muse: ‘Tits can be funny’

The 59-year-old actress is no stranger to a nude scene (who can forget that time she uncrossed her legs in Basic Instinct?), and she feels sometimes it’s necessary to reveal all on certain cinematic occasions.

One such time was in the Albert Brooks’ 1999 comedy, The Muse, in which Sharon plays Sarah Little, an eccentric woman with expensive taste who is believed to be modern day muse by a string of Hollywood screenwriters.

In one scene of the film, Sharon’s Sarah and Andie MacDowell’s Laura are in the latter’s bedroom after the former has moved in. Sarah throws off her robe and jumps into Laura’s bed, while Laura looks on shocked.

On the Anna Faris is Unqualified podcast, Sharon explained why she needed to appear nude in that particular scene.

“Tits can be funny,” Sharon told Anna Faris. “I talked Albert Brooks into allowing me to be naked in The Muse. I wanted to be naked, because in the scene with Andie MacDowell, [my character doesn’t] want her to be in the bed with me, and I’m like, ‘the best way to not have in the bed with me is to not have any clothes on.’

“And Albert’s like, ‘well what would that look like?’ and I’m like, ‘it would look like my big ass getting in the bed naked and it’s funny because she would be horrified. She’d be so horrified that I did that, that she wouldn’t get in.”

Sharon says that nude scenes can be vital in films, when it increases “the impact and importance of the scene”, however, if it doesn’t, the actress asks, “why are you really naked?

“I just feel like, real sexuality is in your mind…in your acting, if you can’t connect with it, it’s because you’re not disciplining yourself to the wholeness of the experience.”

Sharon has a big year ahead in film, with four movies scheduled for release including James Franco’s The Disaster Artist.

The film is based on the real-life friendship of filmmaker Tommy Wiseau and actor Greg Sestero (played by James and his brother Dave Franco) as they make the critically-panned The Room.

Stone plays Greg’s agent, Iris Burton, in the film that has already garnered positive attention from critics and Oscar buzz.

An official release date has yet to be announced for The Disaster Artist.
