The blond actress is such a manipulator she even gave a screenwriter a sensual back massage without underwear to get one of her sex scenes rewritten, Joe Eszterhas writes in American Rhapsody.
"Sharon was straddling my back with her legs, moving up and down [and] I noticed she wasn't wearing any panties," Eszterhas reports in Rhapsody, which is excerpted in the August issue of Talk magazine.
Eszterhas — who scripted Basic Instinct, the sex thriller that made Stone a star — says: "Sharon's knowledge of power was elemental, primal, learned in modeling sessions [at 19] and casting couches and in the back rooms of shadowy, back-lighted discos in Milan and Buenos Aires."
One of Stone's former agents tells Eszterhas: "We used to have a saying among us at the agency: 'Put Sharon in the room alone with the director and she'll close the deal.'"
Shortly after the release of Basic Instinct, Eszterhas says he went to Stone's home where they "smoked some of her Thai," drank Crystal champagne and then "wound up on the rug, crawling around."
Later, they jumped in a limo to go eat "stoned out of our minds. She had scampi sauce dripping down her chin. She looked at the other diners and said, ‘Who are those ---?'
"They were studio heads and producers staring at us."
Eszterhas says Stone threatened to walk off the set of her next film, Sliver, over a scene in which her character masturbates in a tub - claiming "women don't do it that way."
When director Phillip Noyce insisted she do it as Eszterhas wrote it, Stone met both men in a hotel suite, straddled Eszterhas on the floor and massaged him sans panties as Noyce watched and got all hot and bothered, the writer says.
"Do the scene how you want," Noyce later agreed.
Eszterhas says Stone hated the casting of co-star Billy Baldwin in Sliver, complaining: "He's a boy. Give me a man. Give me Alec. I'd let Alec throw me over a table anytime."
Her dislike for Billy Baldwin was so strong, in fact, "she'd wipe her mouth after kissing him or rinse it with mouthwash. She bit his tongue during a kiss," Eszterhas says.
He also claims Sharon tried to make Baldwin fall in love with her "so hard, he won't know what hit him" and it "really p***d her off" when he wouldn't stray from his girlfriend.
Stone's publicist, Cheryl Meisel, said the actress had not seen the book and had no comment.
Eszterhas also says he believes Stone would be the perfect partner for President Clinton because she's "the ripest of ripe peaches, the apotheosis of the curvy beauty-pageant blondes he's always favored"—New York Post
