Gifted actress Sharon Stone began her career as a model, who later quit the flourishing profession to pursue acting. Soon, movie offers started pouring in and Stone went on to become one of the most desirable women, having appeared in a couple of erotic thrillers very early on in her career. After a few initial hiccups and some appearances on television series, Stone got the attention she deserved, which finally led her to her first assignment in 1980.
Considered a sex symbol post her film ‘Basic Instinct’, Stone’s big break came in the form of Wes Craven’s horror film, after which she was seen in quite a lot of B-grade movies, subsequently bagging lead roles in films that not just brought her all the fame but also the awards she deserved in a career spanning over three decades. Here is the list of top 12 movies of Sharon Stone that prove she is a multi-talented actress.
