William Baldwin slams Sharon Stone saying she was told by producer to sleep with him: 'I have so much dirt on her'

Stone said on a recent podcast that the late movie mogul Robert Evans pressured her to sleep with Baldwin so his "Sliver" performance "would get better."

Sharon Stone is naming names — though William Baldwin would beg to differ.

Baldwin lashed out at Stone on social media Tuesday, after the actress said on a recent podcast that the late movie producer Robert Evans tried to convince her to have sex with Baldwin, her costar in the 1993 thriller Sliver, to improve his performance in the film.

"Not sure why Sharon Stone keep [sic] talking about me all these years later?" Baldwin, 61, wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. "Does she still have a crush on me or is she still hurt after all these years because I shunned her advances?"

He added, "I have so much dirt on her it would make her head spin but I've kept quiet."

Baldwin's post came a day after the latest episode of The Louis Theroux Podcast, in which Stone, 66, opened up about the alleged incident with Evans. "[Evans was] running around his office in his sunglasses explaining to me that he slept with Ava Gardner and I should sleep with Billy Baldwin," she said. "Because if I slept with Billy Baldwin, Billy Baldwin's performance would get better. And we needed Billy to get better in the movie, because that was the problem. And if I could sleep with Billy, then we would have chemistry on screen, and if I would just have sex with him, then that would save the movie."

Representatives for Stone and Baldwin didn't immediately respond to EW's request for comment. (Evans died in 2019.)

Stone previously wrote in her 2021 memoir, The Beauty of Living Twice, that an unnamed producer brought her into his office to suggest she sleep with a male costar so that they'd have more chemistry. "He explained to me why I should f--- my costar so that we could have onscreen chemistry," she wrote. "Why, in his day, he made love to Ava Gardner onscreen and it was so sensational! Now just the creepy thought of him in the same room with Ava Gardner gave me pause."

She went on to write that she was labeled "difficult" after telling the producer off.

In Baldwin's social media post, he also insinuated that a third party witnessed Stone's purported advances toward him. "Did she say to her gal pal Janice Dickinson the day after I screen tested and ran into them on our MGM Grand flight back to New York… 'I'm gonna make him fall so hard for me, it's gonna make his head spin.' ???" he wrote.

Representatives for Dickinson didn't immediately respond to EW's request for comment. In a statement to the Daily Mail, however, the model and TV personality reportedly said, "As I recall Sharon never said that to me. I am not sure why Billy Baldwin is bringing this up. I adore them both but that never happened."
