Back to Basics: Sharon Stone at Cannes

Sharon Stone, Cannes 2013

More than 20 years after seducing Michael Douglas in  Basic Instinct, Sharon Stone returns to dazzle Cannes and watch him seduce Matt Damon in Behind the Candelabra.  The French have a strong taste for Hollywood nostalgia and went crazy at her unexpected appearance  – last year’s visit by Bruce Willis elicited a similarly rapturous response.

Wearing the colours of the Côte d’Azur (and winning Forbes’s ‘Best Dressed At Cannes’ award, Stone was among the last to mount the red carpet – alone – and upstaged the entire cast and crew of the gala movie.
