Easily one of the most iconic actresses of the 90’s, Sharon Stone, has been absent from the big screen since 2006. Sure she has been working steadily since then, but most of the films have played the festival circuit and then went straight to DVD. If you really think about it, she has not had a memorable leading role since the 90’s. Most of her best work, post 90’s, has been in minor supporting roles. I know Stone has had her share of forgettable films, but she is too talented of an actress to be stuck in straight-to-DVD purgatory along with several other memorable 90’s actors and actresses. At only 53 years-old Stone still has plenty to offer as an actress if given the right role. In films like Casino, Broken Flowers, and the Quick and the Dead she demonstrated that she was more than just the sex symbol from Basic Instincts. I know Hollywood is notorious for ignoring an actress the minute they reach age 40, but Stone deserves another shot. I would love to see her reboot her career in a Wes Anderson film or even a reunite with director Jim Jarmusch.
