Veteran Hollywierd actress Sharon Stone is fit and fly on the March 2014 cover of Shape Magazine. Stone, who was widely known for her on-screen sex vixen persona in the prime of her career, opened up to the magazine about her advice for maintaining a naturally youthful appearance and why she’s not a fan of plastic surgery.

It’s not easy to look s*xy at 56, but Sharon Stone, who became a sex symbol 22 years ago in Basic Instinct, makes it look as much on the March cover of Shape.
Stone is currently juggling motherhood (she has three boys), a role in the upcoming romantic comedy Fading Gigolo, and the new TNT series Agent X.
The star doesn’t look this good by faking it either. She decided to focus on aging gracefully rather than fading into the youth-obsessed standards of beauty. “This idea that being youthful is the only thing that’s beautiful or attractive simply isn’t true. I don’t want to be an ‘ageless beauty.’ I want to be a woman who is the best I can be at my age.”
Sharon the spoke on turning down surgeons who have offered her face lifts and the women of today becoming clones of each other as a result of plastic surgery.
In her new cover story, she touches on the fact that many surgeons have tried to get her to go under the knife for a face-lift. Her biggest concern with plastic surgery is that everyone is starting to look the same. “We’ve got 400,000 girls with beachy blonde hair, the same nose, gigantic lips, implants in their cheeks, and little Chicklets for teeth. Are they really prettier?” she says.
But she hasn’t always been this confident. “There was a point in my 40s when 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 that I look right now.’
She eventually decided to move forward with a healthy mindset, keeping herself fit through exercise and plenty of stretching.
It’s refreshing to hear a celebrity female speak out against plastic surgery. Kudos to Sharon for staying in shape the au naturale way.
