Name: Sharon Stone
Birth Date: March 10, 1958
Birth Place: Meadville, Pennsylvania, USA
is one of Hollywood's heavyweight actresses.
For a time at least, she was the actress, with
film roles and scripts being thrown at her as
if she was a wishing well.
Sharon Stone was born on the March 10, 1958,
in Meadville, Pennsylvania. The second child
of four (she has an older Michael, younger sister
Kelly and younger brother Patrick) to parents
Joseph and Dorothy Stone.
Her appearance in Total Recall (1990) with Arnold
Schwarzenegger gave her career a much needed
jolt. To coincide with the movie's release,
she posed nude for Playboy magazine, showing
off the buff body she developed in preparation
for the movie (she pumped iron and learned Tae
Kwon Do). She said she posed for the magazine
because she needed the money. "I had just
remodeled my house. I was broke. I needed the
bread." In 1999, she was rated among the
25 sexiest stars of the century by Playboy.
The role that made her a star was that of Catherine
Tramell, a brilliant, coke-snorting, bisexual,
mind-game playing serial killer in the sexually-charged
Basic Instinct (1992). Stone went to considerable
trouble to obtain the part for which she was
far from first choice. Stone had to wait and
actually turned down offers for the mere prospect
to play Catherine Tramell (the part was offered
to 13 other actresses before being offered to
Stone). Several better known actresses of the
time such as Geena Davis turned down the part
mostly because of the nudity required. In the
movie’s most notorious scene, Tramell
is being questioned by the police and she crosses
and uncrosses her legs revealing the fact she
was not wearing any underwear. When seeing her
own vulva in the leg-crossing scene during a
screening of the film, she went into the projection
booth and slapped director Paul Verhoeven. "I
knew that we were going to do this leg crossing
thing and I knew that we were going to allude
to the concept that I was nude, but I did not
think that you would see my vagina in the scene,"
she said. "Later, when I saw it in the
screening I was shocked. I think seeing it in
a room full of strangers was so disrespectful
and so shocking, so I went into the booth and
slapped him and left." Stone claims to
have been tricked into the stunt and considered
Director Paul Verhoeven reportedly told her
to take her panties off because they were visible
through her dress, when in fact he had a camera
filming between her legs and did not tell her.
Later she admitted that the bold act helped
make the movie the number one box office hit
of the year. That year, she was rated by People
magazine as one of the 50 most beautiful people
in the world
After years of litigation, Basic Instinct 2:
Risk Addiction was released on March 31, 2006.
By Sunday, April 2, 2006, after earning $3,200,000
in its debut weekend, the movie was declared
a bomb.Much of the cause of the delay in releasing
the film was Stone's dispute with the filmmakers
over the amount of nudity in the movie: she
wanted a lot, and they wanted much much less.
An orgy scene was cut in order to achieve the
R MPAA rating for the U.S. release; the controversial
scene remained in the UK version of the film.
Stone felt that she is performing the duties
of an "artist", and told an interviewer
that "We are in a time of odd repression
and if a popcorn movie allows us to create a
platform for discussion, wouldn't that be great?"
On January 28, 2005, Sharon Stone helped raise
$1 million in five minutes for mosquito nets
in Tanzania, turning a panel
on African poverty into an impromptu fund-raiser
at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Many observers including UNICEF critisized her
actions by claiming that Stone had reacted instinctively
to the moving words of Tanzanian President Benjamin
Mkapa, because she had not done her research
on the causes, consequences and methods of preventing
malaria; if she had done so, she would have
found out that most African governments already
distribute free bed nets through public hospitals.
Only a quarter of the money pledged was actually
raised, and that in order to fulfill the promise,
UNICEF donated $750,000 so that $1 million worth
of bed nets were sent to Tanzania. Asked by
the Wall Street Journal reporter Xavier Sala-i-Martín
in Davos if UNICEF knows what happened to the
bed nets, the officials could not answer.
Today, Stone believes that there is no doubt
that celebrity involvement in philanthropy can
have many positive effects. Stone has vowed
to consult with Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey,
two prominent philantropists before making another
effort to help another African nation.
The 25-year-old Brazilian model boasts three
significant long-term contracts--Victoria's
Secret, Maybelline and Telecom Italia Mobile,
Italy's mega-cellphone carrier. The former girlfriend
of rocker Lenny Kravitz is now reportedly dating
Prince Wence of Lichtenstein, heir to a royal
fortune Forbes estimates at $4 billion.
