MELBOURNE - Sharon Stone’s infamous leg-crossing scene in ‘Basic Instinct’ has topped a poll of the ‘most-paused moments in movies’.

It topped the poll of must-see moments for movie subscription service Lovefilm, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The saucy scene, in which Stone is apparently not wearing underwear, drew a third of the votes in the poll by the DVD rental and streaming service.
