At 57, the Basic Instinct star looks incredible, going nude in a series of tasteful black and white photos.
And during the interview the actress talked about why she prefers fillers over plastic surgery to keep herself looking youthful.
Sharon is obviously comfortable in her own skin. “I’m aware that my ass looks like a bag of flapjacks but I’m not trying to be the best-looking broad in the world. At a certain point you start asking yourself, ‘What really is sexy?’ It’s not just the elevation of your boobs. It’s being present and having fun and liking yourself enough to like the person that’s with you. If I believed that sexy was trying to be who I was when I did Basic Instinct, then we’d all be having a hard day today,” she said.
We would think men were lining up for Sharon, but apparently that isn’t the case. “I never get asked out. It’s so stupid. I don’t know what to do. I’ve been getting more brazen with flirting, but I don’t think men realize that I’m flirting. They just think, Oh, she’s fun!’” She turns to her longtime assistant and asks, “Do people even realize I’m straight? I think they have questions about it because I have so many lesbian friends right now, she said.”
Although Sharon doesn’t often talk about the cerebral hemorrhage she suffered, she candidly discussed the lasting impact it had on her. “It took two years for my body just to absorb all the internal bleeding I had. It almost feels like my entire DNA changed. My brain isn’t sitting where it used to, my body type changed, and even my food allergies are different. I became more emotionally intelligent. I chose to work very hard to open up other parts of my mind. Now I’m stronger. And I can be abrasively direct. That scares people, but I think that’s not my problem. It’s like, I have brain damage; you’ll just have to deal with it,” she said.
She also recalled going to the hospital after feeling unwell for three days and then suffering a stroke. “When I came to, the doctor was leaning over me. I said, ‘Am I dying?’ And he said, ‘You’re bleeding into your brain.’ I said, ‘I should call my mom,’ and he said, ‘You’re right. You could lose the ability to speak soon,’” she shared with the magazine.
