Sharon Stone is an American actress, producer and model. She was prominent in the 1990s when she was known for portraying femme fatale figures in movies. She has received critical acclaim and accolades for her talent as an actress. 

Stone began her career as a model and made her film debut in “Stardust Memories.” She went on to find fame starring in movies such as “King Solomon's Mines,” “Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold,” “Total Recall,” “Basic Instinct,” “Last Action Hero,” “The Quick and the Dead” and “Casino.”

She proved she was more than just a pretty face as well, earning critical acclaim and accolades for her talent as an actress, including being nominated for an Academy Award for her role as Ginger McKenna in “Casino.” She even won a Golden Globe for the role. She has also won an Emmy Award for guest starring in “The Practice.”

She received her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1995. Owing to her incredible screen presence, Stone is still an in-demand actress now, despite being a veteran in the entertainment business, making appearances in contemporary shows such as “The New Pope,” “Ratched” and “Murderville.”

While her career soared, her personal life saw a host of ups and downs. The twice-married Stone’s first wedding was to television producer Michael Greenburg in 1984. They divorced in 1990. She then became engaged to another producer, William J. MacDonald, but they went their separate ways in 1994. She got engaged again, this time to assistant director Bob Wagner, but they, too, called it quits before heading down the aisle. Finally, in 1998, Stone exchanged vows with journalist Phil Bronstein. However, their pairing was not to be either and they divorced in 2004.

During Stone’s marriage to Bronstein, the star suffered numerous miscarriages in her bid to enter parenthood. In a social media post, Stone recounted the pain of her losses as such:

“I lost nine children by miscarriage. It is no small thing, physically nor emotionally yet we are made to feel it is something to bear alone and secretly with some kind of sense of failure.  Instead of receiving the much needed compassion and empathy and healing which we so need,” she wrote.

Stone’s pregnancy woes are a result of an autoimmune condition she suffers called endometriosis, which results in infertility and difficulties carrying a child to full term. Stone persevered in her goal of attaining motherhood, but in her final attempt in 2000 to have a child naturally, tragedy struck.

“I had to go through painful surgery – and 36 hours of labour – to deliver a stillborn. It was on our way home afterwards, one of the darkest moments of my life, that I got a call from an adoption lawyer: he had a client with a baby boy due in a few weeks. Would I be his mother?” Stone wrote in an essay in Vogue.

Six weeks later, Stone became the mother of her adopted son Roan. After divorcing Bronstein, Stone went on to adopt two more children – Laird in 2005 and Quinn in 2006. 

“I’m now a single mother with three adopted sons, and it has been the great privilege of my life to raise them. When you adopt, you realise any child could be your child, any person could be your relative. After that you never see the world in the same way again,” she described her life now.

In December 2022, Stone made space in her home and heart for yet another child, but this time, under more unfortunate circumstances. When the single father of one of her son Roan’s friends passed away due to Parkinson’s, Stone decided to take him in. 

“My oldest boy’s very best friend, from when he was little, had a single parent — who had Parkinson’s — and who he took care of for 12 years, until his father died during Covid. And so he was suddenly alone… and I took him in. So now I have four boys,” Daily Mail reported Stone as saying during a film festival interview.

The publication also cited a source as saying the boy has lived in Stone’s lush Beverly Hills mansion for some time now and added: “This happened around a year ago and she has kept it pretty quiet. The kid is inseparable from her son Roan and they all live together as a family now, in her big place.”

The insider went on to say: “It’s a really amazing thing to do and it says everything about her. She had a pretty difficult childhood and she wanted to create a family — in the way she would like a family to be. It’s great for Roan because they are best friends and she loves to have a big family around her.”

“She says that he is her ‘adopted son’ — that’s the way she describes him and that’s her commitment, although I am not sure whether steps have been taken to formalise it legally yet,” the source told the publication.
