At Rosie On Fire, we love a woman who not only has style but also substance. Someone who proves you can be as gorgeous inside as you are on the outside. Sharon Stone is a timeless beauty, a Golden Globe Award winner, film producer, fashion model, an advocate and humanitarian. She’s our pick as a woman who does it all – style and substance.
1. She fights for women.
She spoke about her massive brain haemorrhage in 2001 and the challenges that followed. She spent years learning to walk and talk again. Today, she actively advocates for women’s brain health.
She has a refreshing and healthy view of getting older, going against the status quo in Hollywood. She famously said “I love it when people say, ‘In Hollywood, you’re not allowed to get older’… I don’t choose to make growing older a negative. I choose to get older. Growing older is my goal.”
2. She fights for children.
This 59-year-old beauty said in an interview she would rather spend her life loving her three adopted sons than looking for love. Her heart expands beyond her immediate family; through the organisation Planet Hope that she founded, she provides gifts for children in homeless shelters and hospitals for the holidays.
3. She’s an AIDS advocate.
She has been the global campaign chairman for the American Foundation for AIDS for over 20 years. She has worked tirelessly to heighten awareness of HIV/AIDS as a threat to social and economic stability and to underscore the urgent need for continued AIDS research.
What is there not to love about her?
