Biography And Filmography:

Sharon Stone, a former beauty pageant contestant and model, made her film debut with an unscripted role part as a woman seen from a moving train in Woody Allen's "Stardust Memories" (1980), and then endured more than ten years of typical parts to find her way to stardom. 

Stone attracted attention as Ryan O'Neal's actress girlfriend in "Irreconcilable Differences" (1984) with Drew Barrymore, and as Robert Mitchum's daughter-in-law in the television miniseries "War and Remembrance" (1988). She worked in films like Wes Craven's "Deadly Blessing" (1981), "King Solomon's Mines" (1985), and its sequel "Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold" (1987), "Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol" (1987), and a remake of "Blood and Sand" (1989). 

Her first big Hollywood break came playing Arnold Schwarzenegger's spy wife in the science fiction action film "Total Recall" (1990). After five more thrillers and comedies,  Sharon Stone achieved overnight success as a ravenous bisexual crime writer in the controversial and popular erotic thriller "Basic Instinct" (1992) with Michael Douglas. Her panties free, leg-crossing scene brought her lots of fame, but has haunted her ever since. 

Next was "Sliver" (1993), a hot sex drama which did average at the box office, followed by the role of the wife in "Intersection" (1994), which received great reviews despite its small box office draw.

Stone then teamed with Sylvester Stallone in the volatile action thriller "The Specialist" (1994), before reading the script for "The Quick and the Dead" (1995) with Leonardo DiCaprio, and ultimately became its co-producer, paying half of DiCaprio's salary out of her own pocket when the project ran into budget problems. Unfortunately, the reaction was muted, and audiences stayed away. Sharon bounced back in the role of Ginger, the Las Vegas hustler who wins the love of Robert De Niro, in Martin Scorsese's "Casino" (1995). Her work won her a Best Actress Oscar nomination.


Sharon Stone then set up her own production company named "Chaos", and signed a deal with Miramax Films where she produced the classic "Diabolique", and played a death-row inmate whose lawyer freind works to save her from execution in "Last Dance" (1996). The former was significant for her clash with producers over refusing to go nude. 

In her personal life, however, the wreckage of her past roles cemented her image as a "diva", a word  Stone tried to lose in order to be taken more seriously as an actor. She tried change the public's perception of her by taking her famous role in "The Mighty" (1988). 

Her new superstar clout led to the type of roles she liked, like in the movie "Antz”, the 1998 animated film which teamed her again with Woody Allen, and then "Sphere" (1998) with Samuel L. Jackson.  Stone was then hired and cast as a biochemist in Barry Levinson's "Gloria" (1999), and "The Muse" (1999), playing the lead role to Albert Brooks, where a Greek muse gives her inspiration to celebrities, but not without turning their lives upside down with her demands. 

Stone appeared as the alcoholic wife of a horse breeder in "Simpatico" (1999). While she would sometimes appear in low budget projects - like "Picking Up the Pieces" (2000), "Beautiful Joe" (2000), and in a role opposite Ellen Degeneres in the lesbian themed "If These Walls Could Talk 2" (2000) - but her 1998-2003 marriage to newspaper publisher Phil Bronstein kept her away from Hollywood for several years. Also in 2001, she had a brain aneurysm that almost took her life.

After filing for divorce from Bronstein, Stone returned  looking as magnificent as ever, and took a role in the haunted house thriller "Cold Creek Manor" (2003). She then gave one of her best performances as the wicked model Laurel Hadare opposite Halle Berry in "Catwoman" (2004).
