Stone's tearful acceptance over age

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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
