In Basic Instinct, Catherine Tramell writes under the pseudonym "Catherine Woolf".

Catherine Woolf

Is there ever an explanation given as to why she chose that particular pseudonym? Does the name have any significance to her character in the film?

    Virginia Woolf was a famous author. She is known for (among other things) saying that a woman needed money and a room of her own if she wanted to write. I wonder if this is a reference to that. – zeta-band Jun 8 '17 at 18:42
