Sharon Stone Almost Scuppered Elton John's Charity Auction

Jun 28, 2005 | 11:55am EDT

Sharon Stone almost ruined Elton John's recent charity auction, when she tried to double the reserve on all the items on sale.

The Basic Instinct actress was hosting the sale at Elton's recent summer party in Windsor, England and decided the wealthy audience could afford to dig deeper and so increased an agreed reserve price from $9,500 to $18,500.

She told the crowd, "Come on, you can afford it"--but they refused to bid until assured there was no lower limit for bids.
