Did Sharon Stone co-star in the movie Above the Law with Steven Seagal? If so, how old was she? Where did she grow up? Is she currently working on any movies?
—Alan V., Missouri
Yes, that is, indeed, Sharon Stone in Above the Law. The actress was 30 years old at the time the movie came out in 1988. Now 44, the Oscar-nominated actress (for Casino) is married to San Francisco newspaperman Phil Bronstein, and they have a 2-year-old son named Roan. A native of Meadville, Pa., Stone is one of four children. At 17, she graduated from Pennsylvania's Edinboro University. She went on to win some local beauty pageants and became a model in New York, with plans to get into acting. Growing up, she loved the old films with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, and has consistently presented herself with the same type of class and glamour in her public appearances. Her first role was in the Woody Allen film Stardust Memories, but it took 10 years of minor parts before her breakthrough role—playing Arnold Schwarzenegger's wife in Total Recall. At press time, she was set to star in A Different Loyalty, due out next year.
