Default What the Hell Happened to Sharon Stone?

http://lebeauleblog.com/2012/01/08/w...-sharon-stone/

Quote:
Hollywood is a treacherous place. It take a certain kind of person to make it as an actor. But however hard actors have it, actresses have it that much worse. For an actress to make it in Hollywood, well, they have to be strong. Some might even say they need to be made of stone (get it? Iím sorry. I couldnít resist.) Whatever it takes to climb to the top of the A-list, Sharon Stone had it in spades. She had the looks, the talent, the determination and she was more than a little crazy.

When Sharon Stone finally took Hollywood by storm, it seemed like she was an overnight sensation. But that was not the case. The truth is that Stone had a long uphill climb to the top. She fought tooth and nail for years to make it in Hollywood.

Sharon Stone started off as a model and a beauty pagent contestant. She was a contemporary of Michelle Pfeiffer. The two models bonded while auditioning for the role of an extra in Woody Allenís Stardust Memories. Stone got the role. But Pfeifferís acting career would take off while Stoneís languished.

Stardust Memories is one of Woody Allenís favorite of his own films. But pretty much anyone who isnít Woody Allen hates it. Although Allen denies that it was his intent, the movie plays like the director telling off his fans.

The image of a young Stone in glorious black and white blowing kisses from a train is a memorable one. I also liked the bit where the aliens told Woody they liked his earlier, funny movies better.

Stone paid her dues the hard way. On Silver Spoons.

While Pfeiffer was paying her dues in Grease 2, Stone was relegated to guest roles on TV shows like Silver Spoons, Remington Steele and Magnum PI. By 1985, Pfeiffer had done Scarface and Ladyhawke. But Stone was still stuck on TV with parts on shows like TJ Hooker.
