Sharon Stone's career took off after Playboy
Sharon Stone used Playboy to re-market herself as big screen sexy symbol in 1990.
She stripped off to unveil her muscular figure in the publication's pages following her role in 'Total Recall' with Arnold Schwarzenegger and has admitted the shoot and that film changed her career path and led to her being cast in erotic thriller 'Basic Instinct'.
Sharon previously said: "It's funny because for the first part of my career I couldn't get a job because no one thought I was sexy ... Then finally this woman, the photo editor for Playboy, I told her, 'No one thinks I'm sexy. This is so stupid.' And she was like, 'Hef wants to put you in the magazine.' I told people I was sexy, and then I got 'Basic Instinct' and now people think I'm sexy."
