Stone's tearful acceptance over age

Knutsford Guardian: Sharon Stone cried when she realised she was getting older Sharon Stone cried when she realised she was getting older

Sharon Stone has revealed accepting the ageing process has been a struggle.

The 55-year-old Basic Instinct star admitted she even shed tears when she realised she was getting older.

"It hasn't been easy. There was a point in my 40s where I went into the bathroom with a bottle of wine, locked the door, and said, 'I'm not coming out until I can totally accept the way I look right now', " she told US magazine Shape.

"And I examined my face in the magnifying mirror, and I looked at my body, and I cried and cried and cried."

She continued: "Then I said to myself, 'You're going to get old now. How do you want to do that?' And I thought, 'I'd like to age like a dancer.' I want to keep my body in shape like that. I want to do the work. I like to dance and stretch. And I like going to the gym."

Sharon has also quit drinking alcohol as well as doing regular exercise.

"I like porterhouse steak, rib-eyes and New York strip. This works for me because I have very low cholesterol and low blood pressure," she said.

"It's not good for everyone; you have to talk to your doctor about that. I also eat fish and cheese. I like clean food prepared as simply as possible.

"I used to love wine, but I don't drink at all now. I think, at a certain point, it's better for women not to have any alcohol because it can make your face, breasts and midsection get very bloated," she added.
