The Basic Instinct star believed the reason for the severance was, ‘That I’m really hard to cast and there aren’t roles for people my age. And, of course, I’m somewhat difficult.’ 

The Academy Award nominee said she may not find a new agent at this stage in her career. 

‘Maybe I won’t. Maybe this is it,’ she told the paper, adding that she may quit acting for good. 

Out: ‘I’ve been let go,’ she told the paper on Friday. The Basic Instinct star believed the reason for the severance was, ‘That I’m really hard to cast and there aren’t roles for people my age. And, of course, I’m somewhat difficult’ 

‘I really very much enjoyed being Sharon Stone. It was a great front. But I am enjoying being myself more.

‘You don’t like her? She’s difficult? You’re sick of her? Great. Throw her in the trash. I don’t care. I’m done with her too,’ she said. 

In her recently released memoir The Beauty of Living Twice, Sharon admits she was opinionated and stood up to the men who ran Hollywood throughout her career, only to be labelled as difficult.  

Over? ‘I really very much enjoyed being Sharon Stone. It was a great front. But I am enjoying being myself more. You don’t like her? She’s difficult? You’re sick of her? Great. Throw her in the trash. I don’t care. I’m done with her too,’ she said

‘Oh, I used to cause some trouble… It was so easy to wind people up,’ she conceded. 

‘I think I liked to have control of people’s minds, and it was so easy to get them off their rockers.’     

Also in her memoir, Sharon described how she slapped her director Paul Verhoeven in fury after seeing the infamous leg-crossing and uncrossing moment in the erotic thriller Basic Instinct.

She walked out of a preview of the lurid drama after discovering his assurances that her bare crotch wouldn’t show up on screen had been a lie and that the audience could — as she put it — ‘see all the way to Nebraska’. 

In her Radio 4 Women’s Hour and BBC Sounds interview this week, Sharon also chatted about the film industry giving her a label of a ‘difficult woman’, saying that it comes from her inability to lie.

She said: ‘What it really is, is that I don’t have the capacity to lie. And I think that people find that quite off putting.

‘I don’t know if that’s really grit, or just a compulsion. And I think people find that kind of shocking and unsettling. 

‘And when I tell the truth, that can seem quite offensive, or the favourite Hollywood word – difficult.’ 

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to representatives for Sharon Stone for comment.  

She said of her reputation: ‘What it really is, is that I don’t have the capacity to lie. And I think that people find that quite off putting… And when I tell the truth, that can seem quite offensive, or the favourite Hollywood word – difficult’. Pictured in 2020
