We think it's safe to say that Sharon Stone has still got it!!
The veteran actress recently graced the cover of Shape magazine rocking a mesh top over a yellow bikini, and at 55 years of age she has no problem turning heads with her amazing figure!
However, despite her stunning cover shot, Sharon admits that staying fit gets harder and harder every year, and it wasn't always easy for her to accept the changes she was seeing with her body.
"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. Then I said to myself, 'You're going to get old now. How do you want to do that?'"
At that moment, Sharon made a very conscious decision to take control of her own body and immediately began working on establishing healthier habits:
"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'm going to the gym."
In terms of a diet, Sharon says she likes to keep things fairly simple. However, she did say there's one thing she completely cut out of her kitchen:
"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."
Obviously all of this things are working pretty well, because she still looks fantastic!!
Keep up the good work, Sharon!!
