The experience made her swear off Botox, taking cosmetic surgery from a "cute luxury to some kind of massive, painful neurological need," she said.
At one point, Sharon Stone used botox to keep herself looking ever-youthful, but she stopped after a traumatic experience.
According to Vogue Arabia, Stone regularly got botox injections but had to stop after she suffered a serious stroke. "There were periods in the super fame when I got Botox and filler and stuff, and then I had this massive stroke and a nine-day brain hemorrhage and I had to have over 300 shots of Botox and filler to make the one side of my face come up again," she said.
This experience made her swear off Botox, especially since it took cosmetic surgery from a "cute luxury to some kind of massive, painful neurological need," she said.
Stone, 64, had decided to never use Botox or filler again but a recent partner brought up the topic of beauty enhancement with her, and not exactly in a positive manner. The man she was dating was younger to her, she shared, and when he brought this topic up, she said to him, "It would probably be really good for your ego and mine if I did."
She then shared that she saw the man "one more time after that" but then he lost interest. "If you don't see me for more than that, you'll please find your way to the exit," she said.
But, despite this minor glitch, she is still living her best life, the Basic Instinct star revealed. “I feel like this is the most exciting and creative period of my life,” she said towards the end of her conversation. “I feel really, really happy. I’ve never been this joyful.”
Stone is fiercely independent and bold, and no one, not even a man, can make her do things she doesn't want to, and she credits her feminism to her dad.
The actress called her father an "extreme feminist," per Variety, before explaining, "He came from wealth, from oil drilling, and when he was little, there was a huge accident. His father died three months later and all the money went to another family."
She continued, "He thought it was so wrong that his mother didn't get half of it, just because she was a woman. My dad was insistent that I have this feminist attitude. So much so that I never thought of myself as a feminist. These were the rules of my household."
Stone also spoke about her mother's parenting style, describing her as "tough."
"I asked her: 'Why you never let me lean on you?' She said: 'Because I taught you to stand on your two goddamn feet,'" Stone remembered. Now that's some good parenting, isn't it?
