Sharon Stone's Starry Tantrums At 'Golden Boy' Sets

By Ians

Seems like 'Basic Instinct' star Sharon Stone is throwing starry tantrums these days. Italian director Pupi Avati, who was happy to team up with Sharon Stone in his low-budget movie "Golden Boy", says the actress was a demanding diva on the set and gave him a hard time.

Avati was thrilled that Stone agreed to act in the film, until her representative reached out with a lengthy list of demands, reports

"It was a negotiation that bordered on ridiculousness, concerning embarrassing details, as if Italy was a third world country. By the way, we do have electricity in Italy," said the director whose brother Antonio Avati has produced the movie.

Apart from the other things, Stone's refusal to shoot an intimate scene in front of a television crew annoyed the director. When she saw a television crew and photographers filming a scene, she allegedly left the set unannounced.

"Then my brother received a phone call from Los Angeles from her manager. She wouldn't come back on the set until the photographers and especially that damned TV cameramen had gone away. Obviously we did so and she, like nothing happened, shot the scene.

"The thing that I found most absurd is that she had to call to the States and to close herself in a car, instead of coming to ask us directly," Avati said. However, Stone's representative denied the allegation.

"None of this is true," a representative for Stone told HuffPost Entertainment in an email. "Ms. Stone is the consummate professional."

Meanwhile, this isn't the first time someone has alluded to Stone being difficult to work with.
