Sharon Stone Has A Really Chill Attitude About Aging And Plastic Surgery

Sharon Stone on New You CoverSharon Stone is featured in the current issue of New You and she’s spouting wisdom in the true Hollywood weirdo style.

To be quite honest, Stone has some pretty cool ideas about aging, plastic surgery and sex. She’s a little funny and a little profound. I think she might be kind of a weirdo, which I like!

Here are her most profound and strange quotations from the interview:

On aging-

“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.”

 

Being one of the entertainment industry’s most  conventionally attractive humans of all time must have it’s advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, she’s preternaturally attractive which compounded with fancy trainers and treatments and all that rich person  stuff is certainly preserving her good-looks. On the other hand, aging is a much bigger deal for people in the business of being sexy than it is for normals and non-famous people who aren’t paid to be appealing in a world that values youth so ruthlessly.

On plastic surgery-

“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. 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.”

I sort of agree, but it’s so complicated.

More on plastic surgery-

“I can’t tell you how many doctors try to sell me a face lift. 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? 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.”

The only thing worse than the fact that face lifts are a thing at all is the fact that creeps are trying to sell them to Sharon Stone. And there is totally a “sexuality” to imperfections.

“As women, we understand our bodies, and there’s a blossoming that occurs (with sex). We’re hungry for gourmet meals instead of the fast food. We bring to life a more expansive understanding of life, ourselves, and others. We are more generous and assertive.”

I can only glean some vague meaning from this quotation, but it sounds positive.

See what I mean about her being kind of a weirdo though? Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
