She played Catherine Tramell, and Sharon says the role forced her to confront the “darker parts” of her heart. she is herself.
She told PEOPLE: “I had to face everything about myself. It was a scary journey. But once you do that, you walk away with a lot of confidence because you know who you are. Because I had to look at all of myself, parts of myself. There’s no need to dig deep into the scary, dark, or worrisome parts.
“And once you do that, it gives you a lot of confidence because you’ve actually looked in the dark mirror.”
Sharon went on to claim that she’s happy that the 1990s-style erotic thriller genre seems to be making a comeback, saying: “I think people like that. It’s fun, it’s exciting, it’s sexy. I mean, what’s the problem with that?” he added. ”
The actress previously admitted that her life completely changed over the weekend after the film was released in 1992, and that she was found in trouble in Los Angeles days after the film’s release.
During an appearance on CNN, she explained: “I did not know [that scene] It’s going to change the dynamics of my life forever… On the Friday that movie came out, I was basically a nobody, and by Tuesday I was wearing my glasses at Sunset Plaza. I didn’t know I would have to go get it. When I came out, my little 325 BMW and I stopped at a light and everyone climbed on top of my car. “And then when the light turns green and the car starts beeping, I don’t know if it’s legal to drive when there’s so many people on top of it.” Sharon wonders if her story is true. When asked, he confessed that he was worried that he would be jailed if a passionate fan was injured. Furthermore, she added: “This is real and I’m in my car on Sunset Boulevard and I see them on the hood and on the windshield and people are honking and I’m thinking, ‘Why don’t I drive by?’ “They get hurt, but will I get arrested? If you’re driving a car and there’s someone in your car, is that a crime?” Don’t drive? ? What’s the law when there’s someone on top of your car?…” Sharon concluded by warning fans: “Please don’t get in my car because I don’t know what to do.”
