Please don’t uncross your legs, please don’t uncross your legs

James Corden may have the wig, he may have the dress — but the “Late Late Show” host is no Sharon Stone.

The newish CBS personality used Thursday’s guest Michael Douglas and house bandleader Reggie Watts in a remake of 1992’s “Basic Instinct.” It was roughly a million times less sexy though with Corden playing Stone’s role — that is, unless you ask the captivated Watts.

Luckily for other guest Simon Cowell, there were no other actors required.

The brief, new version wasn’t exactly a shot-for-shot re-do of the interrogation scene — it included a solid three-years-later smoking ban joke — but it had all the key elements.

And when the leg-uncrossing occurred — and boy, did it ever –Douglas lost his lunch. Watts, however, was still all in.
