As Gloria, Academy Award® nominee and
Golden Globe Award winner SHARON STONE adds another strong
character to her impressive list of diverse performances. Gloria
is her 30th motion picture.
Last year, she starred opposite Dustin Hoffman in Sphere.
This year, she also starred in The Mighty, in which she
was particularly pleased to play a mother.
The Pennsylvania-born actress made her first, fleeting-but-memorable
film appearance as the blonde goddess glimpsed by Woody Allen
from a passing train in Stardust Memories. Her first major
role was as Ryan O'Neal's conniving actress-girlfriend in Irreconcilable
She received invaluable on-the-job training in a unique assortment
of movies in which she generally outshone the material: King
Solomon's Mines and its sequel, Allan Quartermain And The
Lost City Of Gold; Action Jackson in 1988; Above The
Law, which marked Steven Seagal's debut; Scissors,
her first top billing; the comedy He Said, She Said; John
Frankenheimer's Year Of The Gun, a thriller for which she
earned excellent reviews as an aggressive photojournalist; and
the respected Diary Of A Hitman.
Hot roles in two blockbusters earned the experienced actress "overnight
sensation" status. She gained wide attention as the secret
agent masquerading as Arnold Schwarzenegger's loving wife in Total
Recall. She then starred with Michael Douglas in Basic
Instinct, the top-grossing film of 1991, receiving a Golden
Globe nomination for her memorable performance as Catherine Tramell.
She subsequently starred in the psychosexual thriller Sliver,
a worldwide box-office favorite, and teamed with Richard Gere
for Intersection, drawing favorable reviews in a role that
marked a departure from audience expectations. She starred as
a no-name western gunslinger opposite Gene Hackman in The Quick
And The Dead, which she also produced, and joined Sylvester
Stallone in another box-office smash, The Specialist.
For her performance opposite Robert DeNiro in Martin Scorsese's
Casino, Stone received a Golden Globe Award and a 1995
Academy Award® nomination as Best Actress. The film spotlights
her as Ginger, a Las Vegas denizen who slowly disintegrates as
a mobster's wife.
In 1996, she played a condemned killer in Last Dance and
an icy, murderous mistress in Diabolique.
Next, Stone stars opposite Albert Brooks in The Muse, a
comedy he wrote and directed scheduled for a June release.
