SHARON Stone thrilled moviegoers in the 90s with her legendary leg-crossing scene in Basic Instinct- and now she's done it again.
The 61-year-old re-created the iconic moment on stage at the GQ Awards in Berlin last night as her 19 year-old son Roan sat in the audience.
The 1992 movie made Sharon a household name, largely thanks to the moment when her character, bisexual killer Catherine Tramell, uncrosses her legs during a police interrogation to reveal she has no underwear on.
And Sharon paid homage to the career-defining scene as she accepted a Woman of the Year award at the showbiz event.
Wearing a shimmery black dress that plunged at the front, Sharon made her way to a chair on the stage as she gave her acceptance speech.
Smiling cheekily, she then re-enacted that scene from the movie, which also starred Michael Douglas.
This time around, however, Sharon kept her dignity and didn't flash the audience.
Sharon spoke about how the controversial sequence "changed my life" and revealed how it came to pass.
She said: "Some years ago I was sitting on a sound stage, and my director said, 'Can you hand me your underpants because we’re seeing them in the scene and you shouldn’t have underpants on but we won’t see anything'.
"I said, 'sure.' I didn’t know this moment would change my life."
Sharon then encouraged the audience members to recreate the scene for themselves, before adding how she was once ridiculed for that moment of cinematic history.
"There was a time when all I was, was a joke," said the actress, who went onto star in the sequel, Basic Instinct 2, which flopped at the box office.
Earlier in the evening, Sharon walked the red carpet with her son, who wore a blue tux with a black shirt and bow tie.

Sharon adopted Roan with her ex-husband Phil Bronstein in 2000.
When she and Phil went through a bitter divorce in 2004, Phil won sole custody of Roan, with Sharon only getting monthly visits.
In 2005 and 2006, she went on to adopt two more children on her own, Laird Vonne, 14 and Quinn Kelly, 13.
