Sharon Stone told Vogue Arabia what she thinks about getting older naturally and how a younger man she used to date asked her if she uses Botox. The couple broke up soon after that.
Stone talked about dating the younger man and how their relationship changed when he asked her if she uses Botox in the September cover story for Vogue Arabia.
She remembers telling him that they would probably both feel better about themselves if she did, but that wasn’t going to happen. Soon after that, the relationship ended, but Stone didn’t let it bother her because she didn’t want someone in her life who only cared about how pretty she was.
“After that, I saw him once more, and then he stopped wanting to see me,” Stone told the magazine. “If you don’t see me for more than that, please leave.”
The “Basic Instinct” star has a good reason for not using injectables to stop getting older. She says she used them when she was younger, but now she doesn’t use them at all.
Because of a bad experience with Botox that led to health problems, she now thinks differently about Botox and other injectables.
“When I was super famous, I got Botox, filler, and other things,” she said. “Then I had a massive stroke and a nine-day brain hemorrhage, and I had to get over 300 shots of Botox and filler to make one side of my face come up again.”
Her health scare with injectables and the fact that she had to use them to get better changed how she felt about them. They went from being a “cute luxury” to “some kind of huge, painful neurological need.”
Stone now likes to celebrate her looks as they are, as shown by an Instagram post she made earlier this summer in which she posed at a pool without a top on.

The 64-year-old actress said, “I posted it because I feel like women become invisible once we become moms, and when you’re 45, people walk by you like you don’t exist.”
The picture was taken during a fun afternoon when she and her friends took turns taking pictures of each other and making each other feel good about themselves.
Stone said that she and her friends have agreed to always try to boost each other’s self-esteem because “life doesn’t always make you feel like a winner as you get older.”
