Sharon Stone has named the producer she claims pressured her to sleep with her Sliver co-star Billy Baldwin to improve her co-star's performance.

The actress, 66, first wrote about the alleged incident in her 2021 memoir, The Beauty of Living Twice.

She did not identify the producer in the book, however, during an appearance on the Louis Theroux Podcast, she finally named him.

She identified the producer as the late Robert Evans.

Evans, perhaps best known for his work on Rosemary’s Baby and The Godfather, died of natural causes in 2019 at the age of 89.

Recounting the alleged inappropriate incident, the Basic Instinct star said that she “should’ve been on set” but was instead told to go into Evans' office to discuss her onscreen chemistry with Baldwin, now aged 61.

“[Evan’s] running around his office in his sunglasses, explaining to me that he slept with Ava Gardner and I should sleep with Billy Baldwin, because if I slept with Billy Baldwin, Billy Baldwin’s performance would get better,” Stone recalled. “And we needed Billy to get better in the movie, because that was the problem.”

Explaining Evan’s thought process, she said: “If I could sleep with Billy, then we would have chemistry on-screen, and if I would just have sex with him then that would save the movie."

“And the real problem in the movie was me because I was so uptight, and so not like a real actress, who could just f*** him and get things back on track. And the real problem is that I was such a tight a**,” Stone added.

Stone portrayed Carly in the 1993 mystery thriller. Carly is a successful book editor who learns that a number of female tenants in her new apartment building have been murdered. Baldwin, who plays the prime suspect, is the film's love interest.

Stone had been vocal during Hollywood’s #MeToo movement, sharing her experiences in her memoir.

In November last year, she recounted an incident involving a Sony executive who she claims exposed himself to her during a meeting.

During an episode of Kelly Ripa’s Let’s Talk Off Camera podcast, Stone recalled how when she met with the executive, he started showering her with compliments and then “came walking right up in front of me and he said, ‘But first...’ and he took his penis right out in my face”.

She went on to add that the executive’s assistant ended up leading her out of the room, before stating that this was “not the last of many weird experiences like this in my career”.

“I specifically did not name names in my book, because it’s a pointless exercise, they know who they are,” Stone said. “They so know who they are – I haven’t worked in 20 years.”
