Sharon Stone: In my younger days ‘everybody was telling me what was wrong with my body’

Sharon Stone is a bigger fan of her body at 61 than when she portrayed Catherine Tramell in “Basic Instinct” nearly 30 years ago. 

The Academy Award-nominated actress, on the cover of Allure’s November issue, told the outlet comparatively, “I like my body so much more.”

“I’m so grateful to my body,” she continued. “When I was younger, everybody was telling me what was wrong with my body – too this, too that. When I got on ‘Basic Instinct’ (released in 1992), they hired a makeup artist that put on pounds of makeup every day, and every day I went to my trailer and took the makeup off.”

When asked what inspires her gratitude for her current figure, Stone shared: “I started to understand that I was going to go for being more like a European woman who got more beautiful with age and who could understand that women are more beautiful than girls because they know something.”

Stone, who posed topless for May’s Vogue Portugal, also took a stand against those who resent attractive people. 

“People are incredibly unkind. They think if you’re beautiful, you must be stupid, you must be shallow. If you’re beautiful, we should make you feel small or less,” she said to Allure. “Every person has gifts. And if beauty is one of them, we should accept it and enjoy it as a gift from nature… If someone’s beautiful, for God’s sake, let them be beautiful.”
