Sharon Stone will never join the list of Hollywood stars setting up permanent homes in Europe - because she can't stand the noise there.

The actress, who has been shooting the BASIC INSTINCT sequel in London, admits she misses California whenever she's away from the American state.

She says, "Although I enjoy such cities as London, Paris and Rome, I couldn't live in them because of the noise factor.

"Back in LA I can swim in the sea with the rain pouring down if I so choose, and there is nothing more sensual than that."
