At age 57, Sharon Stone goes back to basic with a series of tasteful nude photographs published in the September edition of Harper’s Bazaar. Without knowing the name, you could be forgiven for thinking they were of a woman 25 years younger. But is that the only reason these pictures are such a talking point?

Career Bio:

Born Sharron Yvonne Stone on 10th March 1958 in Meadville, Pennsylvania, Stone won a scholarship at 15 to Pennsylvania’s Edinboro University, to study fine arts and creative writing. On graduation, and having been voted Miss Pennsylvania beauty pageant winner, she decided on a career in modelling, and signed with the Ford agency in New York.

Career Highs – and lows:

Promoting the film she did a photo shoot for Playboy, which put her into the magazine’s “Top 25 Sexiest Stars of the Century.” However, the film which was to make her a household name was just around the corner. In 1992, she was the bisexual murder suspect in Basic Instinct. The film was a box office hit, in no small part due to Stone’s interrogation scene, when she revealed a lack of underwear to the detectives questioning her. The film gained nominations from the Saturn and Golden Globe awards, and she was included in the “50 Most Beautiful People” list of People magazine. Throughout the rest of the decade Stone’s career peaked and troughed. A couple of films were panned by the critics, while in 1995 Casino won her an Academy Award nomination, and a Golden Globe.
