Hollywood star Sharon Stone doesn't think her 1992 film Basic Instinct could be made in 2019.

Stone has cast doubt on whether the film would have the same elements of "sensationalism" if it were made today by referencing the iconic scene which sees her character spread her legs in front of a group of men in an interrogation room.

"I think Basic Instinct was made at the exact right moment in history because it captured all our fears and doubts and the moment of change of power for women," the 61-year-old told Allure.

"It's still an intriguing film, but could it be made now? I doubt that it would have any form of the sensationalism it had at the time.

"When I began my career, there were only two ways we were allowed to sit: cross at the ankles or ankles under the chair."

Stone starred as murder suspect Catherine Tramell in the film opposite Michael Douglas who played police detective Nick Curran.

Earlier this year, Stone opened up on the difficulties she faced in her life and career after suffering a stroke at the age of 43 in 2001.

The actress battled a nine-day brain haemorrhage following the stroke which left her on the brink of death.

She's urged others to seek medical help when experiencing the early signs of a stroke.

"If you have a really bad headache, you need to go to the hospital," she told Variety.

“I didn’t get to the hospital until day three or four of my stroke. Most people die. I had a 1% chance of living by the time I got surgery – and they wouldn’t know for a month if I would live.”
