Kaley Cuoco is back for Season 2 of her hit song HBO Max show “The Flight Attendant,” and there’s a star joining her in the spotlight: Sharon Stone.
The Big Bang Theory star, 36, looked back on working with the Oscar nominee, 64. tells Jimmy Kimmel about some “very intense scenes”.
As it turns out, the “Basic Instinct” star took down Cuoco and hit her multiple times during filming.
“[Stone] was a fan of the show. She loved season 1 and heard we were casting my mom and she called the casting herself and said, ‘I’d love to do that,'” Cuoco continued Monday episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.
“And the casting said we had a voicemail from Sharon Stone … I thought that can’t be real and found out it is,” she added.
Cuoco noted that the scene where Stone slapped her in the face was improvised. “I think one of our scenes was like 10 minutes long and very emotional,” she continued.
She explained: “There’s a lot of crying. Before we started the scene, she sat down next to me and said, ‘Hey, what do you think about me touching you in this scene?’ I said, ‘Whatever you want to do, Sharon. You are Sharon Stone. You do what you want to do. I’m just so happy you’re here.” She says, ‘Great’. “
The Wedding Ringer actress said the two took the shot and it was a “really long emotional scene” and at the end of the scene, Stone should just come up to Cuoco, say her line and walk out.
“You want her to say, ‘I like you, but I don’t love you very much.’ She says that line to me and she grabs my face and she hits me,” Cuoco said, adding that her reaction was “as real as can be.”
But the Casino graduate immediately came back and apologized to Cuoco, exclaiming, “Oh my god, I love you. I didn’t want that, it felt right for the scene!”
“I think I just got b–ch slapped by Sharon Stone,” Cuoco joked. She then told the show’s cast and crew not to mention the slap to Stone because she didn’t want to be slapped by her a second time.
“I bet the woman won’t hit me again. We took the money,” Cuoco recalled to her producers.
However, Stone came back and beat Cuoco again – and again. When the third take rolled around, she wasn’t happy to have Stone bucking her again.
And yes, Cuoco confirms that those slaps were edited in the upcoming episode.
“I say, ‘Sharon Stone will not hit me a third time.’ We have it. [The camera] wasn’t even with me on the last recording,” she quipped to the talk show host.
Despite the repeated brawls between the two women, Cuoco is still grateful for the experience working with Stone and praised her “incredible” acting skills.
“But she was one of the most wonderful people. It was as real as it could be,” Cuoco said.
Season 2 of The Flight Attendant begins HBO Max April 21.
