Sharon Stone is an actress, producer, and former model born on March 10, 1958 with a net worth of $55 million. In the late 1970s she won the title of Miss Crawford Country in Meadville, and when one of the judges said she should drop out of school and move to New York City to pursue modeling, her mother agreed to let her move in with an aunt in New Jersey. Four days later she signed with the Ford Modeling Agency in New York and appeared in commercials for Burger King, Clairol, and Maybelline.
In the 1980s Stone decided she wanted to give up modeling to pursue acting, and landed a small role in Woody Allen's film Stardust Memories. Her next, larger role was in 1984 in the film Irreconcilable Differences, starring Ryan O'Neal and Drew Barrymore. Throughout the remainder of the 80s, she appeared in Action Jackson, King Solomon's Mines, Allan Quartermain and the Lost City of Gold, Above the Law, and War and Remembrance.
In 1990 Sharon Stone's career took a jump when she appeared in Total Recall with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Alongside the film she appeared in Playboy, and was rated among the 25 sexiest stars of the century. In 1992 she was in the career defining film Basic Instinct, playing a role that had been contested by 150 other women. Following the film, Stone was named one of People's 50 most beautiful people. In 1995 she won her first Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Dramatic Motion Picture for her role in Casino. Her next two projects in 2004 and 2006, Catwoman and Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction, respectively, were both deemed flops by the box office. She then after played small roles, and most recently appeared in four episodes for Law And Order: Special Victims Unit.
