Sharon Stone's Beauty Secrets
How does Hollywood's hottest 49-year-old maintain that youthful glow, shiny hair, and perfectly toned body? She trusts her basic (beauty) instincts.
By Alexandra Parnass
When you interview movie stars, it's always interesting to see which ones have obviously spent three hours in hair and makeup before the interview and which ones feel comfortable enough in their own skin to meet you sans makeup, styled hair, or borrowed shoes. This interview with Sharon Stone had its own brilliant beauty trajectory: When I arrived at Stone's suite at the Hotel Gansevoort in Manhattan, she was fresh scrubbed and just settling in to get primped for a big event later that day. As we talked, she was slowly transformed from bedhead and Levi's to a bronzed glamazon in a Missoni dress.
You're very slim. Do you have a special diet? "I don't really want to be fat, so I stop before I am. I'm not a vegetarian, but I might go through a phase when I'm not interested in eating protein for a week or so, and then I might go through a phase when I eat nothing but steak. I don't use caffeine unless I use it medicinally. I don't eat onions or garlic or a lot of shade fruits because I think of them as medicine. I don't use a ton of dairy, but I feel like I need the fat as I've gotten older. I have the body type, which I think I've been lucky about, that is a little skinny. I am a tea fanatic. I like Sunrider Calli tea, an herbal cleansing tea. I don't like the feeling of being drunk, so drinking hard liquor has never been of interest to me. I have wine with dinner, which I enjoy. My weakness is dark chocolate. I carry little tins of it in my purse."
Do you work out? "I work out only as much as I have to to not be a fat ass. I chase three children to stay in shape. I don't have a regular routine. When I notice things aren't quite where I want them to be, I kind of move more, step it up. You park farther from the door; you take the stairs instead of the elevator."
