Sharon Stone: "Basic Instinct" made her a world star
For decades, the name Sharon Stone (60) was an absolute buzzword. Above all, male fans just could not get enough of the US actress after she had crossed over her legs in the erotic thriller "Basic Instinct" (1992) - without panties. This scene has cult status! Stone suddenly jumped up and immediately started the movie. The blonde from the little town of Meadville in the US state of Pennsylvania has much more to offer.
Her career began as a model in New York, the 1.74-meter, then 19-year-old beauty. Only three years later she was already in front of the camera for director Woody Allen (82): As a young woman on the train she began her acting career with "Stardust Memories" (1980). This was followed by a series of episodes in US series such as "Remington Steele" or "Magnum". But that's not all ...
Then came the cult movie
From "Quatermain II - In Search of the Mysterious City" (1985), she played female lead roles in movies, including "The Total Memory - Total Recall" (1990) by Dutch director Paul Verhoeven (79). He also cast her in the role of beautiful and rich writer and murder suspect Catherine Tramell in Basic Instinct. This thriller earned Sharon Stone the first of four Golden Globe nominations so far.
She won the prize once, for her performance in "Casino" (1995) by Martin Scorsese (75). For the same role, she was also nominated for the Oscar. Her only nomination so far. So far, so good, would not there be the golden raspberries. Among other things for her role in "Catwoman" she was nominated for this negative award. The last of these inglorious awards she received for the "Basic Instinct" continuation "New Game for Catherine Tramell" (2006). In the mystery series "Mosaic" by director Steven Soderbergh (55), she has been making the TV landscape unsafe since 2017.
A heavy stroke of fate
Privately determined massive highs and lows determined the life of the above-average intelligent woman - she has an IQ of 153. The brain hemorrhage that Sharon Stone suffered in the fall of 2001 was particularly significant. As a result, she ended up in intensive care and was in mortal danger for nine days. It took her two long years afterwards to see, speak and walk again.
The incident did not only bring her a real break in life. Physicians in Northern California have since talked of a "stone syndrome" when it comes to a stroke that has been triggered in over-40s through over-the-top fitness training in people over 40.
And what does love do?
And how did the legendary man dream Sharon Stone in love? From 1984 to 1987 she was married to the television producer Michael Greenburg (66). In 1998 she married journalist Phil Bronstein (67). The two adopted 2000 son Roan, who is now 17 years old.
Despite the new family happiness, the marriage did not last, Stone and Bronstein divorced in 2004. In 2005 and 2006, the actress alone adopted two other children, the sons Laird (12) and Quinn (11) made her family complete. On the occasion of his 60th birthday on the 10th of March, at least these three young men will be happy.
