Sharon is one of the smartest celebrities in Hollywood. Her IQ is 154, just like Einstein's. Sharon speaks perfect Italian. Fame didn't to the actress at once. For a long time she was getting only small roles in B-movies, but at age 34 she starred in 'Basic Instinct' and became a huge star practically overnight. Stone did not count on anything, but the project exploded and made her famous. Her father taught the actress how to use a gun. This skill came in handy on the set more than once. Leonardo DiCaprio is one of Sharon's favorites. She persuaded 'The Quick and the Dead' producers to offer him the role of The Kid and even offered her own money to pay him. Stone is a follower of Buddhism. The actress is allergic to caffeine, so she never drinks anything that contains it. The actress' health has long been undermined. She was diagnosed with asthma and diabetes. In addition, in 2001, she suffered a brain hemorrhage. Doctors saved her life, but just barely. Stone adopted three boys, but she has no children of her own.
