Damn, Hollywood is hard on the ladies. It’s often the case that women over 40 can’t find roles and are expected to keep getting more and more plastic surgery to try and look like their younger counterparts… unless, of course, you’re Meryl Streep, but there’s only one Meryl Streep. Oh, and Robin Wright is doing her thing, too. There are a few others, of course, but they’re very few and far between, and frankly, Sharon Stone couldn’t take the pressure.
You see, Sharon is 56 now and seems to have come to terms with aging gracefully, but there was a long stretch of time where she used to lock herself away and cry about the fact that she wasn’t a spring chicken anymore. As she told Shape magazine:
“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’. I examined my face in the magnifying mirror, and I looked at my body, and I cried and cried and cried.”
“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.”
Good for her. I think Sharon Stone looks great and we all need to get over the getting older bullshit. It’s great! It just means you have more LIFE behind you, and frankly, that’s a good thing, I think.

Sharon Stone should probably put down the crack pipe because it’s making her lose her damn mind. Apparently she thinks Kim Kardashian is a “smart cookie”, a title she’s earned by making millions upon millions of dollars by selling herself like a prostitute in every arena that will take her. I mean, uh, successfully releasing several product lines, being on reality TV, etc. (GOD, MAKE IT STOP!)
Stone revealed she’s impressed with Kim K’s success. “She’s not one of the greatest business people out there making gazillions of dollars because she’s not a smart cookie! I wish she’d give me an hour of business counseling, anytime.”
The day Sharon Stone gets business advice from Kim Kardashian is the day I… I don’t know, throw myself off a cliff. Not that Sharon Stone is anything fantastic, but come on! I don’t think willingness to plaster your face and body everywhere that will possibly accept you counts as a business model, I’m sorry.

Sharon Stone has never been shy about showing off her body at any age. And she looks damn good, not just for 55. She hasn’t gotten any sort of major plastic surgery either (as you can especially tell from these pics, but hey, everyone has a bad day.) Here’s her theory on plastic surgery, from New You magazine via E Online:
I can’t tell you how many doctors try to sell me a facelift. I’ve even gone as far as having someone talk me into it, but when I went over and looked at pictures of myself, I thought, what are they going to lift?
It’s not like fifty is the new thirty. It’s like fifty is the new chapter. We know so much at this age, and people realize we’re the ones with experience. We’re a very colorful generation that is leading once again.
I love her for rejecting the whole “[this older age] is the new [this younger age]” thing. So sick of hearing that.
Her porn movie with Amanda Seyfried comes out August 9.

Sharon Stone basically walked around topless in France, when she wore a shirt so threadbare she looked bare. Guess it was her…basic instinct. (YEEEAAAHH!!!). No but really, come on, Sharon. Sharon. You totally knew you shirt was this see-through. Her 13 year-old son looks thrilled to be walking with her. Although that could be because of the paprazzi.
She looks great (I don’t care what these photos show) — that’s totally not the issue here. She has lovely boobs, for a woman not just her age, but any age. Still, this seems just kind of ridiculous. Especially with those pants. That may be what I’m most offended by. Those pants.

Kate Moss and Sharon Stone kissed each other to raise money for AIDS research. And someone actually paid $53,529 for this to happen. They also got a bottle of Moet & Chandon champagne signed by Ms. Moss and Ms. Stone. Oh, okay, totally worth it now. They should have lead with that.
This all happened at an amFAR Inspiration Gala in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It’s almost like everyone waited for Lohan to leave Brazil before they held the gala, considering how considerate she is when it comes to borrowing things for their events.
Anyway, someone else bid $7,500 to kiss Ms. Moss. She told the Times UK via People:
I put loads of red lipstick on and I never wear red lipstick so he’s going to be stained.
After said kiss, the winning bidder said that,
She tastes as good as she looks…for what I got, [$7,500] was hardly anything.
Wait what? Huh?
No word on if anyone bid anything to kiss Sharon Stone or if she was even up for auction, but I can think of a whole lot of people who would not want to kiss her.
Recently Ms. Moss also raised quite a bit of money by reading Fifty Shades of Grey over the radio for Comic Relief.

Sharon Stone is apparently a bad employer. Really? Naw.
Her former maid, Angelica Castillo, is suing Ms. Stone for treating her poorly. From TMZ:
[Castillo claims] she injured her back while loading groceries in a car for Sharon. Castillo says her doctor ordered her to avoid lifting heavy objects, but that didn’t sit well with the temperamental actress.
According to the lawsuit, when Castillo resisted heavy lifting because of the pain, Stone called her “crazy” and “stupid” and ultimately fired her. [...] In May [Stone] was sued by a former nanny who claimed Sharon berated her for her religion and gave her walking papers. The Filipino nanny also alleged Sharon ordered her not to speak to her kids because she did not want them to “talk like you.”
If this is true (and it’s very plausible), ugh and yikes. It’s pretty much well-known in Hollywood that Sharon Stone isn’t the nicest person or the easiest to work with. She and Terrence “Baby Wipes” Howard would make a good match.
