Sharon Stone posed nude for Harper’s Bazaar magazine, and looks fantastic at 57, thanks to yoga workouts and a low-carb diet.
Sharon understands she doesn’t have the tight body of a 20-year-old bikini babe, and that’s OK with her.
“I’m aware that my ass looks like a bag of flapjacks,” Stone joked to Harper’s Bazaar. “But I’m not trying to be the best-looking broad in the world. At a certain point you start asking yourself, ‘What really is sexy?'”
Sharon continued: “It’s not just the elevation of your boobs. It’s being present and having fun and liking yourself enough to like the person that’s with you. If I believed that sexy was trying to be who I was when I did ‘Basic Instinct,’ then we’d all be having a hard day today.”
Stone, who suffered a brain aneurysm in 2001, said she hasn’t had any plastic surgery, but does get fillers in her face to smooth out wrinkles.
“It’s so common now for people to use fillers, it’s almost like a beauty treatment,” said Sharon. “And it’s a far better alternative than having your face cut apart and ending up looking like you got sucked into a wind tunnel.”
Stone maintains her sleek physique by following the low-carb GI (Glycemic Index) Diet, which focuses on eating non-starchy foods with a low glycemic index. Sharon’s low-carb diet is heavy in red meat and vegetables but avoids sugar and simple carbs.
Stone has followed the GI Diet for over 10 years, and credits it for helping her recover from a brain aneurysm in 2001, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
Sharon said fitness maven Jane Fonda (who looks unbelievable at 78) is her workout inspiration.
Jane’s bestselling workout videos helped launch the 1980s aerobics craze. Fonda revealed her workout secrets in her latest exercise video, Jane Fonda Prime Time.
Sharon is inspired by Fonda’s motto that discipline sets you free. Stone’s workouts include exercising with weights in her pool, strength-training, stretching, dancing and yoga. “I do what it takes,” said Sharon. “I go to the gym and I eat healthy.”
