Her was a sexy icon who seriously risked overshadowing Marilyn Monroe, she just didn’t succeed.

Sharon Stone, career beginnings
Sharon Stone was born in Pennsylvania, on March 10, 1958, to parents of Irish descent , the second of four children. That primordial charm that is very reminiscent of the girl next door and that is very “Irish” made her notice right away. She was not yet twenty, she already paraded at provincial beauty events and, in 1977, she decided to try a modeling career in New York.
In a short time she became one of the most requested models, especially for high-class fashion shows and for this reason she signed the contracts that brought her to France . Here she is noticed first by Woody Allen and then by Claude Lelouche. They are the ones to launch it in the world of cinema with the films: Stardust Memories and Bolero .
Nineties and international success
In 1990, back in the United States, she starred in the film Act of Force together with Arnold Schwarzenegger .
The success of the film, and her subsequent photo shoot for “Playboy” make Sharon Stone a sexy myth at home and around the world. In the vein of seductive thrillers she lands a few years later in Basic Instinct which makes her an absolute icon.
Memorable is the scene of the crossed legs, which then go around the world, projecting Sharon Stone into the Olympus of the sexiest women in the world:
From that moment on there are many films that see her involved.
To name a few: Love Trap, Casino, Empire, Catwoman. She returned to acting in Basic Instinct 2 in 2006, at almost fifty, with equal success. In all this, Stone did not stop even in the face of serious health problems (a stroke in 2001 and a heart attack in 2004) from which she has always recovered in a great way.
Fun fact: Sharon Stone age
How old is Sharon Stone?
The American actress is almost 62 years old, but who knows? She remains a very attractive woman today, despite the age that she continues to advance.
The return among the stars
Twice married (to producer Michael Greenburg and publisher Phil Bronstein) she had no children of her own, but adopted three children between 2000 and 2006.
After the problems that put her life at risk , Sharon Stone is back more beautiful and fit than ever on stage and film sets.
We find her in 2010 with a minor role in the television series Law & Order , but so well interpreted that the four episodes in which she appears are among the most followed of the year.
In 2013 he played three quality films with Woody Allen and John Turturro and a triumphal return to the Olympus of Hollywood stars.
Stone is not afraid to show herself with her age, she accepts roles of all kinds, always conducted with professional skill.
In 2014 the Italian director Pupi Avati wants her in his film A Golden Boy , and in 2016 and again at the cinema with the film Agent X and with Mothers and Daughters .
