Sharon Stone has English, German, Scottish, Irish, and Scots-Irish/Northern Irish ancestry.
Sharon Stone was born on March 10, 1958, in Meadville, Pennsylvania, the United States, to Dorothy Marie (née Lawson; b. 1933), an accountant, and Joseph William Stone II (1930-2009), a tool and die, manufacturer and factory worker. She was the second of four children. She has an older brother, Michael (b. 1951), a younger sister, Kelly (b. 1961), and a younger brother, Patrick (b. 1965).
Sharon Stone was a fast developer. She was able to walk and talk by her first birthday. From a very early age, Stone says, she wasn’t like other kids - she was more mature, less child-like. It’s a quality she believes that even those closest to her had trouble reconciling. “I think it was just very alarming for my mother to be talking to a very short, tiny, little adult, who was having structured, thoughtful, wise conversation,” Stone says.
As a child, she mounted plays in her parents' garage to entertain the neighbors and used her beauty pageant money to hire an acting coach to help her hone her craft.
