Sharon Stone Admits Aging Has Been Hard
The 55-year-old actress says growing old gracefully "hasn't been easy"
In a new interview with Shape magazine, the 56-year-old actress admits, "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 said.
The evolution from twenty-something bombshell babe to forty-something mature woman was difficult for her to manage. "I examined my face in the magnifying mirror, and I looked at my body, and I cried and cried and cried," she said. "Then I said to myself, 'You're going to get old now. How do you want to do that?'"
She developed an exercise regimen "like a dancer," that involves lots of dancing and stretching. And she quit drinking alcohol. "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." Fair enough. [Us Weekly]
