Basic Instinct : Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Guys,

First off lemme confess that am a die hard fan of Jeanne Tripplehorn. Having said that I would love to get your take on this. We all know who eventually became the Hollywood superstar after this movie, but my question is who was the actual hottie in Basic Instinct. Jeanne or Sharon? Be as objective about it as you can. For me it'll always be Jeanne. She's the MILF of them two even now, isn't she? Remember, 'Big Love'?

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Your question is somewhat silly. While I agree Tripplehorn looked amazing in the film, Sharon Stone's character was MEANT to be a promiscuous, intelligent bombshell from the very start - that was the essence of the character. And while her actual "hotness" is up to everyone's personal taste, in the context of the movie and it's content Catherine was the 'hottie'.
I don't mean to impose, but I am the Ocean.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

I think it would have been much more interesting if Sharon and Jeane had switched roles. Sharon has got more the bad girl look, and Jeane the innocent good girl look, which is why it would have better the other way around. If Jeanne had acted like a promiscuous femme fatale, then she definitely would have been more sexy, hands down.

I prefer Tripplehorn over Stone any time. And apecificly in this film - Sharon is alright, but Jeanne is definitely The Hottie. Its up to personal taste. Enough said.

I guess you were too lazy to read all the posts in this thread...

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

SS is hotter than JT, but I prefer JT.

Agreed!

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Great response to these very silly low brow questions: "Who is hotter..."
Not that this particular movie should be regarded as a work of fine art, (though it's very well made). I guess
there'll always be a group of people who look at movies and reduce the flick to explosions and tits and will look at nudes in
paintings and say "whoa check out the rack on that one."

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Jeanne for me.

Jeanne and Sharon are both very attractive women.

I am sure most men would like to have a threesome with both of them hehehe

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Good question, and not easily answered.

NikitaXC13 covered my opinions almost exactly.


In my opinion, Jeanne Tripplehorn's features, individually, are more attractive and sensual, but put together they're not as intriguing as Sharon Stone's, who comes across as more beautiful, overall, though her features, taken individually, are less striking and plainer.


Watching Basic Instinct, I simply could not look away from Sharon Stone, who - to me - looks just about as beautiful as any woman ever has in a film. The plain-ness of her features comes together to create stunning, perfect beauty. And of course a lot of credit has to go to Jan de Bont and his crew who lit and photographed her.

But Jeanne is another matter. She is a beauty in the opposite way to Sharon Stone. Her looks are much more 'interesting'. Basically, she's funny-lookin', but this is her charm, The imperfection of her features makes her utterly intriguing. The eyes in particular are incredible.

Watching Basic Instinct I was very drawn to both ladies, but there were some scenes with Stone when I was just thinking 'this is a good as any woman has ever looked'. With Jeanne, the closest I got was 'her eyes are amazing'.

I have to vote for Sharon on this one.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

1992 i watched this movie, when "Roxy" came down the stairs in the beginning of the movie... wow. Yeah, Sharon is kinda hot but Roxy was more "sexy".

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

watched this movie a few times but it wasn't until last night watching it again on tv,that i really paid attention to Leilani Sarelle {Roxy} what a beautiful woman,she is by far prettier than both Stone and Tripplehorn IMO,although lets be honest all 3 are pretty hot.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

No, Roxy's not in the running, sorry.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

that is just your opinion...none of them came close to Sela Ward at that time.....and thats just my opinion...no right no wrong.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Sharon, of course.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Jeanne by a million miles,i wish she got more sex scenes.she has such a sultry sexy look.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Coming from a straight girl, they are both attractive. Jeanne has impressively sensual lips, and Sharon had that "girl next door/shampoo model" look that made her character's behavior all the more shocking. I will say, what was with that suit they put Jeanne in at the beginning? It looked like it belonged to her father. She was swimming in it.

The sky is blue

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

shampoo model, that summarizes it!!!! I'm also a girl, and I think Sharon Stone's def. has that innocence on her face. Or is it her blondness that is usually a symbol of youth anyway?

Loved her teasing scene in the disco bar and slamming the bathroom stall door with her foot. That's the most captivating gaze I've ever seen in this memorable film.

I don't intend to be offensive, but I have to defend my opinions.


Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

These questions like "Who's the hottest...?" always remind me of the kinds of questions my friends and I used to ask each other when we were kids, like "What car would you rather drive-- a Ferrari F-40 or a Lamborghini Countach?" then proceed to spend hours offering up all sorts of "authoritative" reasons in defense of one or the other. And even though many of the arguments were actually valid, the whole discussion was ultimately academic, because the real answer is, "either vehicle is gonna leave you with a silly-ass grin on your face after you mash your foot down on the gas pedal."

That having been said, from early in my youth I've always had a thing for the icy blonde "femme fatale" types. I'm definitely a fan of the old film-noirs, a chief reason being the plethora of really good looking women in them, and among these there have been some truly hot blondes: Veronica Lake, Claire Trevor, a young Lauren Bacall. In fact, I like collecting old movie posters and photos, and I have a black & white shot of a somewhat lesser-known film noir actress, Mariann Carr, who Sharon Stone (particularly in Basic Instinct) actually bears a somewhat vague but striking resemblance to. Unfortunately, there's no info on the photo as to what film it might be from so I can't refer the inquisitive among you, you'll just have to Google around or check IMDB for a sampling of photos.

So it's this bias that would lead me, at least at first glance, to vote Sharon Stone as the "true hottie" of the film. I'm definitely partial to blondes (not just from afar, it seems that quite a few of my girlfriends over the years have been fair-haired), and Sharon Stone is most definitely stunning in this movie (and still is today), yet I can't state conclusively that she wins the contest. [BTW, another poster mentioned it so I see I'm not the only one, but I found Stone's lover, Roxy, to be quite a hottie in her own right!]

For one thing, even though body-wise Stone is smoking, her thinner, more "angular" frame just loses out to Jeanne Tripplehorn's slightly fuller, more curvaceous shape. Also, just as I admire the Impressionist art of Renoir while simultaneously having a love of Picasso, even though they are stylisticly wide apart on the spectrum, so it is with women: I do love blondes, but can very much appreciate a dark-haired beauty. In fact, the starlet I have been most infatuated with my movie-watching life, the poster-size photo that would be on my wall if I could have no other, would be Gene Tierney, of "Laura" fame. She was eye-flippingly gorgeous, and she was a brunette.

I definitely think Jeanne Tripplehorn is in this league. She is just a full-on '10' in every category there is. The astute poster above me, agnieszka01, is right on when she observes Jeanne's "impressively sensual lips". I would also add her impressively sensual cheeks, eyes, hips, and-- oh my God-- those legs. I also confess to being an unabashed connoisseur of the female posterior (vulgarly known as "an ass man"), and in that department there is no contest-- it's Tripplehorn all the way.

Oh, there is something else.... Even though we are ranking mainly based on looks (this being a film board, after all), personality enters greatly into the equation, at least for me, with intelligence in particular carrying the most weight. So clearly Stone's character ranks highly in this arena: she's articulate, an author, and her clever outgunning of Michael Douglas throughout the film cranks up the sexiness quotient a bit. On the other hand, Jeanne's obviously no slouch in the smarts department either, with the added benefit that her intelligence is not of the psychopathic variety. Furthermore, Stone is ultimately too cool and calculating, too "in-control" to take the top prize; I like to see passion in a woman, a little blaze of heat once in a while, and that was on display with J.T. several times, like when she comes ferociously at Douglas in his apartment (for some remarks he made after asking for his keys back). But the scene that takes top honors, the one that gets my pulse-rate highest and solidly places J.T. in the #1 slot as the all-around-total-hottie-package, is where she petulantly tells 'Nick' where he can find some cigarettes while storming off in her short tight skirt and thigh-high stockings: "Get 'em on your way out!", she says, just before slamming the door. She was sizzling, and it's a bit ironic too that these few frames-- for me, the hottest in the whole movie-- don't actually involve any sex or even nudity (she may have been topless- I don't remember), and actually come after the particularly aggressive (and controversial) sex scence between Douglas and Tripplehorn. Once again: that sequence where she's in bed with Douglas, angry and flushed, yells at him and storms off-- that alone exalts her to Top Hottie, in polite, my hat's off to runner-up Ms. Stone fashion. If you tack on the preceding sex scene, then it's not just J.T. as Top Hottie-- it's a no-contest, deck-is-stacked, all-opponents-left-crying-for-mercy Top-Hottie-with-extreme-prejudice!

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Sharon Stone.... there is no other above this Lady... Period!!

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Jeanne for me. Sharon Stone has unremarkable features - a bit like Madonna

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

And the WINNER!!! is > whoever had either one of these HOTTIES!!!
Delicious either way...

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Personally, if this was a genuine choice (and I really wish it was), I'd go for Jeanne Tripplehorn. Sharon Stone is a bit too perfect looking for me, Jeanne Tripplehorn has more of a 'girl next door' thing going on (in hollywood terms obviously), and that scene is so fricking hot, when he holds her down and rips her clothes off, wow.

Although I'd take Madonna in Body of Evidence over both of them.

Actually a few people in the thread gave Roxy props, including me in my post back in March.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Jeanne Tripplehorn, any day. That ass is just asking for a nice banging.

Hama cheez ba-Beer behtar meshawad!

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

I think in terms of facial features, Sharon does have a perfect facial feature that leaves you enchanted for a moment. However, it quickly fades as the movie progresses. Jeanne doesn't have a perfect facial feature so the first impression wasn't as notable as Sharon's. However, her features grows on you and the not-so-perfect features just turns out to be part of her charm. The sex scene with Jeanne topped all of Sharon's nude scenes as the chemistry between her and Nick was off the roof. She's got a much better body than Sharon. Her body is more curvaceous and her ass is fuller. I especially love her long slender legs with the nylons on. In conclusion, Jeanne wins in the long run.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Tripplehorn (sp?) is a freaking barker. Blech.

Jeanne

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

The two have very different styles...


This has to be considered.


They are both incredibly hot.


On the same level of hotness, but different looks.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

^^This. Pretty much a tie for me, both are very hot for different reasons and Michael Douglas share some really hot love scenes with both of them.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??



I love both but Sharon i always had the hots for since i was a kid when i watched Deadly Blessing on video and when i saw Total Recall 4 times on the big screen when i was 9.

I did rented this movie in it's unrated cut when i was 13 and remembered having dirty fantasies about Sharon.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

I feel slightly more attracted towards Jeanne, but Sharon Stone IS a woman ...

she's definitely hotter than Jeanne.

Re: Who was the actual hottie, Jeanne or Sharon??

Girl here. Sharon. Catherine was a femme fatale and Sharon played the role perfectly. I think Jeanne could have probably pulled the role off too, but Sharon was the better choice for this movie.

I prefer Jeanne.

Lol, do people over 25 make you uncomfortable or something? Your posting history indicates that you have issue with Stone's age.
