Sharon Stone shared a clip on Wednesday in which she bonded with a monkey named Pablo who stars with her on the Netflix series Ratched.
The video was taken when the 62-year-old actress first met the famous animal that also shared the screen with Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush on Pirates Of The Caribbean.
‘When we met❤️,’ the Basic Instinct veteran wrote in her caption.
Monkeying around: Sharon Stone shared a clip on Wednesday where she bonded with a monkey named Pablo who stars with her on the Netflix series Ratched
They were a good pair: the blonde with Pablo on her shoulder in a scene from Ratched; the little man had even had a dress made just for him
“He’s just checking me out because I think lice, Dr. Pablo … he’s looking for all my problems and we fix them all,” the star said softly as the primate looked at her ears, eyebrows and neck.
“He’s making sure I’m okay to work with, so far so well,” joked the Sliver star. “He’s protecting me.”
The star was seen sitting on a dark couch at home wearing her blonde hair back and wearing minimal makeup.
The former beauty pageant queen seemed fascinated by the monkey as he looked into her ear.
Stone told Town & Country she didn’t want to work with money at first, but creator Ryan Murphy insisted.

So close: ‘He’s just checking me out, I think lice, Dr. Pablo … he’s looking for all my problems and we’ll solve them all, ‘the star said softly as the primate looked at her ears, eyebrows and neck.
Funny: ‘He makes sure I can work well, so far so well,’ joked the Sliver star. ‘He protects me’
“I was like, ‘No, Ryan, no, I can’t have a monkey,’” Stone told the magazine.
‘I’m like,’ I’ve worked with leopards in Africa. I’m comfortable with leopards. ”
But Murphy didn’t stop: “No, it must be a monkey for God’s sake,” Sharon said in a stern voice.
The star gave in, but wanted to throw the monkey herself. ‘There was a monkey who worked on Pirates of the Caribbean, which was great. A real pro ape, ”she told Ryan.
“I’m like, ‘Let’s get the monkey in there. Can I please meet this monkey at my house?'”

A fantastic character: Playing Lenore Osgood in Ratched was a sensation for her. “She’s crazy,” says Stone with a sly smile. ‘And at the same time she thinks she’s really a doting mom who has her sh * t together’
And then the primate came to her home in Beverly Hills to meet.
Ratched costume designer Lou Eyrich told W magazine that a wardrobe was being made for the little guy: “The very first day the monkeys came to try on, we were all just fascinated. Everyone wanted to come and have a look in the fitting room.
‘The handler had brought two, so we made an outfit for each, with matching trousers or panties under their party dresses. But in the end we only actually filmed with one of the monkeys, who was called Pablo. ‘
He has a good resume! Pablo seen here with Geoffrey Rush, Keira Knightley and Johnny Depp in Pirates Of The Caribbean – At World’s End in 2007
Playing Lenore Osgood in Ratched was a sensation for Stone, she also told Town & Country. “She’s crazy,” says Stone with a sly smile. ‘And at the same time, she thinks she’s really a doting mom who has her sh * t together.’
Still on top: Stone spoke about her new role in Town & Country
To help her with her role, Sharon figured out the character’s backstory.
“I thought she was probably Doris Duke’s best friend – she was a showgirl who married some rich man and knocked him out,” she said.
“She would try to be classy because the more fabulous she was, the less people knew she came out of nowhere and was a complete criminal.”
Also in T&C, Stone said she had experienced sexual harassment at the peak of her career.
Stone didn’t provide too much detail on her sexual harassment story with the unnamed director – who denied the story at the time of publication – but she conveyed the tension well.
“He would tell me to sit on his lap to get the direction of the scene,” said Stone.
And when I told him I wasn’t going to sit on his lap, he sent me back to the trailer. And so it was. ‘
The incident took place when she was “ at the peak of her earning potential, ” the magazine explained. Stone reportedly made her most money for Basic Instinct 2 in 2006 at over $ 13 million.
An Icon: When Sharon played the crafty author Catherine Trammel in 1992’s Basic Instinct, she showed a cold, calculated sexuality
Her sex symbol lingers, which amazes the veteran.
‘People still want to see my breasts. I am 62! It’s like, “Really? Growing up!” But also: “Here are some tits!” ‘She said with a theatrical gesture.
As for how she became known in the early 1990s, she says the public wanted a pin-up.
“People, I think, really needed a sex symbol,” said the Pennsylvania resident.
‘I mean, I never thought I was this sexy … When I did Basic Instinct, I explored my dark side and befriended my dark side. I shouldn’t be afraid of myself. I think people think that’s sexy. ‘
But getting people to expect to always be a sex symbol is taxing. ‘It was very difficult for Marilyn Monroe. She made movies that really mattered like Bus Stop, The Misfits, but she still couldn’t quite get away from that thing. It’s very hard to shake, ”said the mother of three.
There was also a time when Sharon was barely employed due to the old Hollywood rules that are still in place. “You don’t really get a job between 40 and 60. It doesn’t matter if you’re at the peak of your career or if you just made Casino. That’s it: no work, ”said the movie queen. Casino came out in 1995.
