She's Not Fidel-ing Around
2/19/2014 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sharon Stone claims a big time movie producer is a liar and a fraud who
asked her to falsify U.S. documents so she could go to Cuba and play
Ernest Hemingway's wife in a new movie ... and when she refused she got
stiffed and was ordered to return a custom wig.

Stone made a deal with Bob Yari to shoot "Papa," about the famous
writer. Sharon was slated to play Mary Hemingway, but there was a big snag.

According to the lawsuit, filed by legal pit bull Marty Singer, Stone
needed legal clearance to take the trip to Castroland. Stone claims in
the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Yari asked her to LIE in order to get
permission from the U.S. Government. He wanted her to say the trip was
for a "cultural endeavor" ... which it wasn't.

Stone claims Yari pressured her to falsify government documents, and
when she resisted he sent her an email saying, "NO ONE has EVER been
jailed for travel to Cuba."

Sharon refused to budge, so Yari -- who also produced "Crash" -- recast
the role and refused to pay her the $500,000 she was promised.

To add insult to injury, Sharon says Yari actually had the gall to
demand that she return the wig that had been made for the Mary Hemingway

Sharon is suing for the $500K.
