Stone’s first move to becoming the TV star she’d dreamed of was entering beauty contests. As a college student, she contested and won the Miss Crawford County, Pennsylvania. At the advice of one of the judges, Sharon Stone quit college and relocated to New Jersey to pursue a career as a fashion model.
Ford Modeling Agency signed her and in no time, Stone was recording enormous success as a model, appearing both in TV commercials and print advertisement. From New York, she relocated to Europe where she decided to pursue a career in acting.
