American actress, producer, and former fashion model, a dangerously sultry screen leading lady. She is the recipient of a Primetime Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award, as well as having received nominations for an Academy Award and two Screen Actors Guild Awards.
After winning a local beauty contest she moved to New York, a well-scrubbed beauty who showed well in wholesome commercials. For ten years she honed her craft before the hit film Total Recall (1990), in which she made a big impact. The notorious shot of her crossing her legs, sans underwear, in Basic Instinct (1992), made her sizzling hot property.
The daughter of a dye maker and a bookkeeper, Stone was the second of four kids. With an IQ tested at 154, genius level, she was taking college classes at 15. A nerd in school, she was tall and skinny with thick glasses. In her teens she had a freak accident, when a horse she was riding bolted. He ran under a clothesline that caught Stone on the throat, leaving a scar that cosmetic surgery can not erase.
Blossoming into a swan, she was signed by the prestigious Eileen Ford agency to become a New York model. Modeling in turn paid for acting lessons. At age 22, Woody Allen put her in Stardust Memories (1980) and her wordless role stood out. After a few poor films, she did a Playboy nude spread in 1990, an exposure that launched her career into the femme fatale role of Basic Instinct.
Stone married producer Michael Greenberg, whom she had met in 1984, but the union fell apart in 1987. She married San Francisco newspaper executive Phil Bronstein, 45, during a Valentine's Day party at her Beverly Hills home on 14 February 1998. They adopted a baby boy, Roan Joseph, who had been born on 22 May 2000, bringing him home from Texas when he was a week old.
A non-smoker or drinker, she tends to be brutally honest and daring. The flip side of her smoldering persona bakes cookies and works diligently to raise money to fight AIDS. Determination is a central key to her personality; she never gives up.
On 29 September 2001, Stone's husband took her to a hospital emergency room because she was suffering severe head pain. She had experienced a tiny brain aneurysm and spent the rest of the week under observation.
After five years of marriage, the actress and her husband announced an "amicable" separation on 3 July 2003.
The actress filed a libel and slander lawsuit on 13 December 2004 against a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. She claimed that the physician falsely took credit for performing a face-lift that she never had. The physician’s lawyer retorted that the surgeon “Never told anyone he did plastic surgery work on Sharon Stone, nor has he ever taken credit for it.” Stone’s lawsuit stated that she “prides herself on her natural beauty.”
The actress filed to adopt her 3rd child and 3rd boy in June 2006 and confirmed the adoption in late August. The child is named Quinn Kelly Stone.
