An image of actress Sharon Stone

Growing up, Pennsylvania movie star Sharon Stone had great dreams. 

She was influenced a lot by her family and looked up to her father, whom she describes as a "gentle man". Sharon has survived a brain aneurysm, a divorce and having her child taken away from her. She opened up about what the experiences have taught her on Oprah's Master Class.
