Sharon Stone has opened up to Vogue Arabia about her thoughts on natural aging and how a younger man she was dating asked her if she was using Botox. The relationship ended soon after.
In Stone’s September cover story for Vogue Arabia, she opened up about her experience with the young man and how their relationship changed when he asked if she was using Botox.
She remembers telling him that they’d both probably get a nice ego boost if she did, but that wasn’t something that was in the cards for her. The relationship ended soon after, but Stone didn’t let that affect her, noting that she didn’t want someone in her life who only appreciated her beauty.
“I saw him once after that, and then he didn’t want to see me anymore,” Stone told the magazine. “If you don’t see me longer than that, please find your way out.”
SHARON STONE SAYS SHE IS ‘Amazed’ TO STILL MODEL AT 62
There’s a good reason the ‘Basic Instinct’ star opted out of using injectables to reverse the aging process. She admits to using them when she was younger, but has effectively ruled them out.
A bad experience with Botox, which led to health complications, made him change his mind about Botox and other injectables.
“There were periods in super fame where I had Botox and fillers and stuff, and then I had this massive stroke and a nine-day brain hemorrhage, and I had to have more 300 shots of Botox and fillers to make the side of my face came back,” she explained.
His fear of health involving injectables and their necessity in his recovery process changed the way he viewed them. They went from a “cute luxury” to “some kind of massive, painful neurological need.”
Stone now prefers to celebrate her appearance as it is, as evidenced by her Instagram post earlier this summer, in which she posed topless at a swimming pool.

“I posted it because I feel like women become invisible once we become moms, and you’re 45 and people walk past you like you’re not there,” explained the 64-year-old actress.
The photo was taken on a fun afternoon where she and her girlfriends took turns taking pictures of each other and feeling good about themselves.

Stone explained that she and her friends made a deal to constantly try to boost each other’s self-esteem because “life doesn’t always make you feel like a winner as you get older.”
