Sharon Stone proved she’s still got it as she posed for a sensual bikini snap.

The actress became revered as a sex symbol almost overnight early on in her acting career, often playing the role of the femme fatale – a title cemented after her legendary role in Basic Instinct.

Now, at the age of 65 Sharon has got fans hot under the collar for the umpteenth time as she showed off her toned body in a mirror snap.

The photograph, posted on Instagram to her 3.7 million followers, sees Sharon looking git in a green leopard print thong bikini.

In it, she poses with her body half turned in a full-length mirror, showing off her breasts and bum in the itty-bitty material.

Sharon looks as cool as ever as she gazes towards the camera in black sunglasses, her blonde hair tousled, as she wrote: ‘Ready for summer,’ along with a kiss emoji and sunglasses.

The snap has, understandably, driven fans wild – both long-time viewers and other celebs, with Kelly Rowland among those commenting saying Sharon would ‘GET IT.’

Priyanka Chopra shared a heart-eyes and fire emoji, while US comedian Whitney Cummings wrote simply: ‘I’m gay.’ A fair reaction.

One fan commented that Sharon has ‘never been more sensual,’ while one said she should be called ‘Sharon Stonecold FOX.’

And one particularly down bad man wrote: ‘Damn Sharon can you marry it with me please I’m a good cook I don’t need anything I’m a healthy cooking guy but I love you all my life.’ Again, a fair reaction.

Sharon became a household name after her role in Basic Instinct alongside Michael Douglas – a role which, she recently revealed, she was paid a whole lot less than her male co-star for.

Now Oscar-nominated, Sharon starred alongside Michael, now 78, in the erotic thriller which made nearly $353m (£185m) at the box office largely thanks to audiences wanting to see her notorious leg-crossing scene.

Sharon was paid $500,000 (£404k) for her lead part in the movie – while she says Michael was paid a jaw-dropping $14million (£11 million).

She told the New York Women In Film and Television’s Muse Awards lunch that she was ‘new and he was a very big star’ at the time – but she felt disrespected by a producer on the film who repeatedly called her ‘Karen’.

‘And, I carried that humiliation really deeply within me – even though my name wasn’t on the poster.’

While Basic Instinct was the film to catapult Sharon into international stardom, the most infamous scene remains a source of contention for her, as she alleges she was tricked by the director into stripping off her underwear.

The police interrogation scene sees her character uncross her legs to briefly reveal her privates to the officers – and said in her autobiography The Beauty of Living Twice she was told to remove her underwear as it was reflecting too much light but was assured her genitals could not be seen on camera.
