Lindsey Vonn, Sharon Stone


Hey, Tiger Woods: Perhaps you should clear the house of ice picks!

That's because the singer's hookup with skiing champ Lindsey Vonn isn't the only thing that's gone public these days.

A cover shoot that the now-28-year-old athlete did for ESPN The Magazine back in 2010 has surfaced, showing the blond beauty channeling Sharon Stone in her infamous leg-uncrossing scene in Basic Instinct.

And you gotta admit it: The resemblance is uncanny.

For the cover shoot, Vonn slathers on her best femme fatale come-ons, eerily mimicking Stone's star-making scene down to the halter turtleneck dress, upswept 'do and slingback pumps.

In a behind-the-scenes video, the Olympic champ recalls how they zeroed in on the concept for the shoot.

"I have a lot of favorite movies, and one of my favorites is Gladiator, but that would probably be a little hard to reenact or recreate," she says in the clip.

"In the last couple of photo shoots, someone said I looked like Sharon Stone. My husband"—she was then married to Thomas Vonn—"and I were thinking, 'OK, well, what's a good Sharon Stone movie?' And Basic Instinct came up. And, I don't know, it just kinda seemed like it would work, and here I am."

Indeed. Hands down, the spot-on parody was a real...killer.
