“I only made $500,000 on the film”: Sharon Stone Was Not Unhappy After Learning Her Co-star Earned $14 Million For Basic Instinct

Actress Sharon Stone is undoubtedly one of the best actresses of the last three decades. The actress has starred in several hits like Casino (1995), The Specialist (1994), and Catwoman (2004). She became a household name after she starred as Catherine Tramell in Paul Verhoeven’s Basic Instinct (1992).

That was the turning point in her career but how much did the actress earn from the movie? Stone recently talked about how the film industry has changed over the years, specifically pointing out that film sets only had men back in the day. The actress’s salary felt insignificant compared to her co-star, Michael Douglas’ salary.

Actress Sharon Stone recently gave an interview at New York Women In Film & Television’s 43rd annual Muse Awards’ lunch and talked about the gender pay gap she noticed back when she was an emerging star. The actress revealed that she was only paid $500,000 for work as Catherine Tramell in Basic Instinct (1992),

“Michael Douglas made $14 million. Now, I was new. I was new and he was a very big star. I only made $500,000 on the film.

Her co-star, Michael Douglas, who played the role of Detective Nick Curran in the movie, was paid a whopping $14 million for his part.

Sharon Stone further explained that there were a lot of men on the film sets back in the day. The actress felt uncomfortable as she was one of the few women working on the sets,
“When I would go to the set there would be 300 men, and my hair and makeup and dressers were men, when I was doing explicit scenes. It was all men and me. And sometimes I could ask the wardrobe supervisor, who may be a woman, if she wouldn’t mind staying on set while I did that.”

The actress then added that she is really “grateful” that “there are women in film now” compared to the 1990s.
