GLORIA

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 Differences.

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.
