Sharon Stone: ‘People think if you’re beautiful, you must be stupid, shallow’

This was printed at the beginning without context
People are incredibly unkind. They think if you’re beautiful, you must be stupid, you must be shallow. If you’re beautiful, we should make you feel small or less. Every person has gifts. And if beauty is one of them, we should accept it and enjoy it as a gift from nature… If someone’s beautiful, for God’s sake, let them be beautiful.

Allure: Have you had a favorite age?
SS: My 40s were so beautiful. I couldn’t work because women, once they got to be 40, were not given jobs in Hollywood. I was a mom with three beautiful little boys. I was recovering from a massive brain injury, and I was in custody court constantly over my oldest child. But there was something wonderful in that period of all those challenges. And even though no one wanted to date me — no one would want a woman that had little children — it was a period of reconciliation and change, and understanding myself. It was my period of the biggest change, but the period where I thought I was the most beautiful.

Allure: Is there anything that you wish you had or hadn’t done in your 40s?
SS: I wish that someone had fallen in love with me, I guess. I think life would have been less harsh with a partner.

SS: I would say — this is speculative at this moment, that should I have a lover — I would think that sex would be better, because it would come from love. Sex for the sake of sex at this point in my life is not interesting.

ALLURE: You don’t seem to get lonely.
SS: I absolutely get lonely. It would be false to say that the happiness of my solitude doesn’t come sometimes with the melancholy of aloneness. But no one is going to find the beauty of genuine love through flagrant promiscuity.

ALLURE: I hope this isn’t too personal. When was the last time you cried?
SS: I’m crying a little bit now. It’s not really a sad thing. It’s more — life is so beautiful. When we’re young and we’re so driven by the follies of our youth, sometimes we can miss some of the great beauty and wonder of the simplicity of every day.
