Whatever happened to Sharon Stone?
Sharon Stone was a bonafide '90s icon thanks to her attention-grabbing roles in Total Recall and, of course, Basic Instinct. Following her Oscar nomination for Casino in 1996 (she nabbed the Golden Globe that same year), Stone seemed on course for a world-conquering career. But now, 20 years on, it's difficult to pick out even one role since that comes close to those three.
Although Stone has worked consistently over the past two decades, she's also been mostly out of the spotlight (perhaps by choice?). When she does pop up in the media, it's usually to discuss whether the infamous leg-opening scene was kosher. Or it's because director Paul Verhoeven is flapping his gums again about what she really agreed to do. But, in the background of all this, Stone has been quietly building a life, family, and a career for herself that's worth taking notice of, too.
