Only Sharon Stone Could Have Been Catherine Tramell
There are a few roles played a few certain actors that are more than iconic, they are groundbreaking. They are forged in our memories, and they are probably the sexiest damn thing any of us have ever seen on screen. Sharon Stone as Catherine Tramell is one such role. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and watch her amazing audition tape.
Posted on Twitter by Sharon Stone herself we get to see a glimpse of what the director (and I guess some producers) got to see first hand when casting Catherine Tramell. All the little details that we loved about Catherine Tramell are present. Well, most of the details. The other stuff that will happen in the movie, they probably couldn’t do in the audition. I do believe that only Sharon Stone could have played Catherine Tramell, that’s what makes the role, the character, and Basic Instinct such an iconic film. I think we can all remember where we were when we watched for the first time. Then when we watched it again, possibly fast forwarding to the good parts, and then when we watched a third time to try and figure out the plot, and finally when we watched it one last time, but only the moments with Sharon Stone. Good times.
Well, after watching Sharon’s audition tape and all this talk about Basic Instinct it looks like I’m going to have to spend my weekend watching it for the… one more time. I've lost count of how many times I’ve watched it.
