Sharon's diva demands revealed

Last updated at 12:21 02 July 2004

Sharon Stone demands a travelling chef, three nannies and approval of scripts, directors and co-stars when she makes a movie, according to court papers.

The 46-year-old film star's "perk list" was filed in a court as part of a legal battle with the makers of Basic Instinct.

As well as a multi-million dollar salary, Stone demands about £2,000-a-week in pocket money, as well as a list of luxuries.

The five-page list demands that she has Pilates equipment during a movie shoot, as well as armed bodyguards and a ban on cigar smoking on set.

She wants a chauffeured car driven by a non-smoking driver, who she approves, and a convertible sedan for personal use.

Also ordered are three nannies, two assistants, mobile phones, pagers, and a presidential hotel suite.

First-class travel is necessary if there is "no use of private jet".

Stone also requires a travelling chef and a deluxe motor home with air conditioning, heating, bed, private bathroom, shower, television, video, refrigerator, telephone, stove, couch, stereo, and fax machine.

She also has the right to keep any of the clothes and jewellery she wears in the movie.

The list includes handwritten additions by Stone's lawyer and was submitted to a court in the United States.

It is part of a lawsuit in which she is claiming about £8 million which she says she is owed because a Basic Instinct sequel was never made.

Movie producers argued there was never a binding deal to make a Basic Instinct II, and said there were unresolved issues involving Stone's male co-star, nude scenes, and the star's "inflated" perk list.

The document was obtained and reproduced by the Smoking Gun website ( ), part of Court TV.
