Stardom and Sharon Stone: power as masquerade

Feasey, R (2004) 'Stardom and Sharon Stone: power as masquerade.' Quarterly Review of Film and Video, 21 (3). pp. 199-207. ISSN 1050-9208

Abstract

This article illustrates the ways in which review media presented both the construction and the evolution of Sharon Stone’s public persona. I will draw on a wide range of film reviews and feature articles that cross media forms of quality and distinction in order to suggest that Sharon Stone’s public ‘personality’ is a carefully considered set of multiple masquerades that are created and re-created for the purposes of media attention. I am not interested in locating the true Sharon Stone behind the shifting star persona, but rather, I am interested in the ways in which review journalism worked to circulate this particular star image for Hollywood and its surrounding channels of discourse.
