55-year old Actress Sharon Stone, known for her role in Basic Instinct, recently gave her thoughts on plastic surgery, as well as promote her new film Lovelace in NEW YOU magazine.
Sharon Stone revealed her thoughts on aging in Hollywood and how she tries to stay away from plastic surgery in a cosmetically-enhanced environment in Hollywood. She also indicated that although she considered having a facelift, she ultimately decided against it.
In an interview with NEW YOU magazine, Sharon said: “People are afraid of changing; that they’re losing something. They don’t understand that they are also gaining something. I thought I lost the deep vortex on my eyelid that you have when you’re younger, but I gained almost a kind of beautiful abyss. As I lost the fullness in my face, I got in these great cheekbones.”
She further added: “I can’t tell you how many doctors try to sell me a facelift. I’ve even gone as far as having someone talk me into it, but when I went over and looked at pictures of myself, I thought, What are they going to lift?,” she said. “Yes, I have come close— but, frankly, I think that in the art of aging well there’s this sexuality to having those imperfections. It’s sensual.”
Regarding plastic surgery, Sharon Stone said: “If you have things that you want to fix, you should go right ahead and fix them. I don’t think there is anything wrong with cosmetic surgery at all. I think it’s great,” she said. “But I don’t think it’s alright to distort yourself. You can’t treat an illness with cosmetic surgery, and that’s why it would be great if there were qualified therapists in plastic surgeons’ offices, and that people would go to a therapeutic meeting before plastic surgery. I think that should be part of the FDA requirement.”
While she may not have had plastic surgery perse, Sharon Stone has had other cosmetic procedures, such as a lip augmentation, in which she indicated made her look like a “trout,” and possibly had Botox and chemical peels in the past.
