Sharon Stone is poised for her Hollywood comeback. When many people think of actress Sharon Stone’s leading roles, they might think back to Basic Instinct, which was made in 1992. (Let’s put it in perspective—if Basic Instinct was a person, they’d be graduated from college, working, and possibly a parent by now.) Luckily for her biggest fans, Stone has done some incredible work since her Basic Instinct days—including a recent comeback that proves the 60-year-old is a Hollywood force to be reckoned with. One part of Stone’s re-emergence is her leading role in the film All I Wish. “To see Sharon Stone in a movie these days is to be reminded of how much you’ve missed her since the last one,” notes an article in Variety magazine. “Her star quality is particular: a cool, crackling, slightly ribald confidence in her own charisma that hasn’t been especially well-tended, much less replicated, by Hollywood in the last 20-odd years…” In an article by the Chicago Tribune—and also noted by several other media outlets—it comes to light that Stone advocated for a role meant for a woman half her age in All I Wish. “The most remarkable thing about All I Wish, written and directed by Susan Walter, is the casting — but what a difference it makes for this light romantic comedy,” the Chicago Tribune notes. “Star Sharon Stone was originally offered the mother role, but convinced Walter she should play the daughter, Senna, instead. So Senna became 46, not 25, and Stone stepped into one of her more winning roles in a long time. With an older woman as the lead, this cute rom-com takes on a greater depth and poignancy than it would have with standard 20-something stars.” A recent article in Salon provides its readers with a comprehensive summary of All I Wish’s plotline: “Sharon Stone plays Senna, a vivacious 46-year-old woman whose life unfolds one birthday at a time over a succession of years. Dreaming of being a fashion designer, Senna works as a buyer for a boutique. The day she loses her job is also the night she meets Adam (Tony Goldwyn), Continued, page 12 Sharon Stone stars with Selma Blair, Christina Ricci, Courteney Cox & Susan Sarandon in the 2016 independent drama film, Mothers and Daughters.
