SHARON STONE became one of Hollywood's most sought-after leading ladies following her starring role as Catherine Tramell in Paul Verhoeven's Basic Instinct, a blockbuster hit both in the U.S. and abroad. The performance earned Stone her first Golden Globe Award nomination.

Stone subsequently received an Academy Award nomination, and won a Golden Globe Award, for Best Actress for her performance in Martin Scorsese's Casino, in which she starred opposite Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci. She was most recently nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her performance in The Mighty.

Born in Meadville, Pennsylvania, Stone began her career by winning several local beauty pageants. She went on to success as a model, working for the prestigious Eileen Ford Agency. Her first (albeit fleeting) film appearance was as the blond goddess glimpsed by Woody Allen on a passing train in Allen's Stardust Memories. Stone's first major film role was as the conniving young actress girlfriend of Ryan O'Neal in the comedy Irreconcilable Differences.

In Paul Verhoeven's Total Recall Stone starred opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger as a duplicitous 'wife.' Among her numerous other film credits are The Quick and the Dead (which she also co-produced), The Specialist (starring opposite Sylvester Stallone), Intersection (starring opposite Richard Gere), Sliver (with William Baldwin and Tom Berenger), Sphere (with Dustin Hoffman and Samuel L. Jackson), and Sidney Lumet's remake of Gloria.

Stone recently voiced the role of Princess Bala (opposite Woody Allen as Z) in the popular animated film Antz. She will soon be seen starring in Matthew Warchus' film of Sam Shepard's Simpatico, starring with Nick Nolte, Albert Finney, and - as in The Muse - Jeff Bridges.

She has completed filming a role in Alfonso Arau's Picking Up the Pieces, marking her third screen collaboration with Woody Allen; and a starring role opposite Ellen DeGeneres in a segment of HBO's multipart telefilm If These Walls Could Talk 2, directed by Anne Heche.

Stone next begins work on Stephen Metcalfe's Beautiful Joe, starring with Billy Connolly.
