Sharon Stone believes she has been granted a second chance at life now that she has reached middle age.
The stunning actress and mother of three doesn’t lament growing older.
In fact the star prefers being the ripe age of 55 as she feels like she has the opportunity to create anew.
"Realise that when you are 'middle aged' you have a chance for a whole second career, another love, another life,” she revealed in New You magazine.
“You may be sick of what you did the first half of your life, but you don't just have to walk around and play golf or do nothing. We're too young for that. It's not like 50 is the new 30. It's like 50 is the new chapter. We know so much at this age, and people realise we're the ones with experience. We're a very colourful generation that is leading once again."
Sharon doesn’t believe her beauty is diminishing as her age increases.
The star is convinced that her appearance is actually getting more and more attractive as the years add on.
"People are afraid of changing; that they're losing something. They don't understand that they are also gaining something,” she mused.
“I thought I lost the deep vortex on my eyelid that you have when you're younger, but I gained almost a kind of beautiful abyss. As I lost the fullness in my face, I got in these great cheekbones."
Sharon remains one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood.
She attributes her health and radiance to maintaining a positive outlook.
"It begins with a state of mind,” Sharon explained.
“I think that many people try to make everything as difficult as they possibly can. You should try to take the philosophy of: What if it's just easy?”
