But Stone proved the critics wrong in 1995 with Martin Scorsese's Casino. The film won Stone a Golden Globe as well as an Academy Award nomination, and put Stone back in the limelight.
Following the win,
she took on a number of dramatic roles including The Quick and the Dead (1995) and Last Dance (1996). She finished the decade with a number of uneven films, including Sphere in 1998 and Gloria in 1999, but received praise for her comedic performance in The Muse that same year.
In 2001, Stone encountered health problems after a severe headache turned into a brain hemorrhage. The actress recovered, and returned to the big screen in 2004 as the co-star of Catwoman with Benjamin Bratt and Halle Berry.
In the last few years, Stone has appeared in several smaller independent films including Broken Flowers, starring Bill Murray, and Bobby, written by actor Emilio Estevez. Her most recent project, Streets of Blood, is set to premiere in 2009.
Stone married producer Michael Greenburg in 1984. The couple divorced three years later. In 1998 she married again, this time to San Francisco Chronicle Executive Editor Phil Bronstein. The couple adopted a son, Roan Joseph, before their divorce in 2004. Since then, Stone adopted two more sons: Laird Vonne (2005) and Quinn Kelly (2006).
