“After ‘Basic Instinct’, no one wanted to pay me,” Stone said on Friday night at the FUNKSHION “Celebration of Hope” fashion event to honour sister Kelly Stone at The Setai in Miami, reports people.com.

“I remember sitting in my kitchen with my manager and just crying and saying ‘I’m not going to work until I get paid’. I still got paid so much less than any man,” she added.

Stone also added that the issue extends beyond the movie industry in Hollywood, saying that change “has to start with regular pay, not just for movie stars, but regular pay for the regular woman in the regular job.”
