Sharon Stone’s father said, “She is not going to be in film”.

The Beauty of Living Twice gets its title from a harrowing health crisis of Stone suffered in 2001, when she was hospitalized for a brain hemorrhage. In this memoir, she is revealing lots of shocking facts. On this occasion, we thought to share of astounding facts about this Hollywood diva. Who set a new standard in a cinema. Sharon Stone was born and raised in Meadville, a small town in Pennsylvania. Her strict father was a factory worker, and her mother was a homemaker. She was the second of four children. Her father was that much strict that he never thought she would be part of the Film industry. 

Sharon Stone met Muhammad Ali when she was 17. She was in the Miss Pennsylvania pageant and Ali was in Hershey, Pennsylvania, when Stone was there and she met him. And then Ali called her father and offered her a part in The Greatest (1977), a film that he was making. The late boxing champ predicted movie stardom while her father was skeptical. Sharon Stone’s father said, “She is not going to be in film”. Ali told her father, ”You may think that she is not, but she is. You cannot hide that girl under a bushel basket. Her light is too bright”.

She worked her way up to become a successful Ford model, both in TV commercials and print ads. In 1980, she made her acting debut in Woody Allen‘s Stardust Memories (1980) as “pretty girl in train”. Her first speaking part, though, was in Wes Craven‘s horror movie, Deadly Blessing (1981). She struggled through many parts in B-movies, notably King Solomon’s Mines (1985) and Action Jackson (1988).

She finally got her big break with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Total Recall (1990) and also posed nude for Playboy, a daring move for a 32-year-old actress. But it worked; she landed the breakthrough role as a sociopath novelist, “Catherine Tramell”, in Basic Instinct (1992). Her interrogation scene has become a classic in film history and her performance captivated everyone, from MTV viewers, who honored her with Most Desirable Female and Best Female Performance Awards, to a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress. 

But it wasn’t until she played a beautiful but drug-crazy wife of Robert De Niro in Casino (1995) that she got far more than just fame and fortune–she also received the acknowledgment of the movie industry for her acting ability. She received her first Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination. She did a couple of films afterwards, teaming up with Isabelle Adjani in Diabolique (1996), and as a woman waiting for her death penalty in Last Dance (1996).
