Stone ‘suing producer’

Sharon Stone is battling a Hollywood producer who “asked her to falsify documents”.

The actress apparently signed on to play Ernest Hemingway’s wife Mary, in new movie Papa.

Producer Bob Yari then “asked her to falsify US documents” to travel to Cuba, and fired her from the film when she refused.

“According to the lawsuit, filed by legal pit bull Marty Singer, Stone needed legal clearance to take the trip to Castroland. Stone claims in the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Yari asked her to LIE in order to get permission from the US Government. He wanted her to say the trip was for a ‘cultural endeavor ... which it wasn't,” reports TMZ.

When Sharon refused to do so, being afraid of the legal consequences, Bob allegedly sent her an email saying "NO ONE has EVER been jailed for travel to Cuba."

The Basic Instinct star is sung for $500,000, the amount she was supposed to be paid for the project.

Sharon, 55, recently spoke about how difficult it is to age in Hollywood and still find good roles. She admitted to having a crisis in her mid-40’s where she was in tears over her looks.

“There was a point in my 40s where I went into the bathroom with a bottle of wine, locked the door, and said, ‘I’m not coming out until I can totally accept the way I look right now,’” she told Shape magazine.

“And I examined my face in the magnifying mirror, and I looked at my body, and I cried and cried and cried. Then I said to myself, ‘You’re going to get old now. How do you want to do that?’”

The star soon decided that she wasn’t giving up. According to Sharon, she decided to make it a priority to keep fit.

“I thought, ‘I’d like to age like a dancer.’ I want to keep my body in shape like that. I want to do the work. I like to dance and stretch. And I like going to the gym,” she added.
