Lookin’ Back: Sliver
Movie Star Tom Berenger just finished up a healthy BM in the john here. Got me thinkin’ about the time I did a job playing thriller author Jack Lansford in the picture, “Sliver.”
The honchos gave Billy Baldwin the job as leading man, guess they were banking on him not turning into a punchline. But Movie Star Tom Berenger knows he can’t always play the hunk. I’m a professional actor, not some pretty boy model in a queer rag, so I was fine with it.
Turned out Sharon Stone wasn’t too eager to please Billy in the hump shots. Apparently, she needs to be real lubed up downstairs to heat up the camera. Billy just wasn’t her type.
Sharon asked Movie Star Tom Berenger if he ever heard of “fluffing.” I said I had, but I preferred to straight up ball a gal if it was all the same. I already knew Sharon spread ‘em wide if you had so much as a studio expense account or a daytime tv credit, so when she gave me a wink I knew it was time to throw the pigskin around.
I double-bagged the 4.5 and gave Stone a quick toss in the P.A.’s john. Movie Star Tom Berenger had just ordered a pastrami hero and didn’t want it to get cold.
Sharon nailed the scene. Never did get as much as a thank you. Guess where Sharon’s from they never heard of manners.
I’m Movie Star Tom Berenger.
There you go. That’s my Sliver story.
