How did Sharon Stone’s Earn Her Money and Wealth?
Born and raised in Meadville, Pennsylvania on March 10, 1958; Sharon Stone established her beautiful persona early on; signing with Ford Modelling Agency in New York City. However, soon realizing that modelling wasn’t her forte, she moved to Europe to pursue acting. With few small acting jobs in movies such as ‘Stardust Memories’ (1980), and ‘Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol’ (1987); the actress first gained recognition for her performance in an American miniseries ‘War and Remembrance’ (1988-1989).
The 59-year old actress shot to stardom with her voluptuous yet conniving role as Lori Quaid in Paul Verhoeven directed science fiction film ‘Total Recall’ (1980), a work which essentially established her as sex symbol of the 1980s, which got elevated even more with her unperceptively sensual performance as the striking murdering psychopath Catherine Tramell in ‘Basic Instinct’ (1992). The controversial subject helped her attain scathing international recognition with the Paul Verhoeven directed neo-noir thriller. This also helped her win her first “Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama”.
Following a string of similar performances, Stone sensed her first critical wave with Martin Scorsese’s epic crime drama ‘Casino’ (1995), for which she gained both critical and commercial praise. Winning the “Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama”, the actress also several nominations at the Academy Awards and the Chicago Film Critics Associations.
The following years did not prove to be quite worthy, with ‘The Mighty’ (1998) and the animated feature ‘Antz’ (1998) being her only notable films. The actress ventured in the telly scene with HBO movie ‘If These Walls Could Talk 2’ (200), where she played lesbian lover Fran; and legal drama series ‘The Practice’ (1997-2004), appearing in the eighth season.
With an unsuccessful stint of returning to mainstream cinema in the early 2000s, the actress finally came back into action with Nick Cassavetes’ ‘Alpha Dog’ (2006), which went on to become an arthouse hit.In 2013, Stone starred in an ensemble in American comedy ‘Finding Gogolo’, where she was termed as the “splendidly understated” by the American film critic Glenn Kenny. Her most recent project is Susan Walter’s ‘A Little Something for Your Birthday’ (2017).
