Sharon Stone thinks anyone who says looks don't matter is a "liar".
The 62-year-old actress has slammed those who tell people that it doesn't matter what they look like, as she believes physical attributes are important, and thinks it's a "big, fat, stupid lie" to say otherwise.
In an interview with The Telegraphy, Sharon, who stars in the new Netflix drama Ratched, a prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, she said: "You don't even realise how much [looks] matter until they start to go. It's a big, fat stupid lie if anyone says that they don't."
She also said she "doesn't really care" if someone "pats [her] on the rear". In fact, she misses the days when men "were allowed" to "whistle and flirt".
She added: "Frankly, I don't really care if they [people] pat me on the rear.
"It was a lot of fun when we were allowed to whistle and flirt, but that era has passed. Because sometimes it's just a small thing — a look or a nod — and sometimes you just have to walk away or laugh. And sometimes you really have to put your foot down."
She said her age has given her a better perspective on what's worth fighting for, and so she doesn't give her attention to things which will "fade away anyway".
She explained: "I just feel like all of that stuff is such a small victory. And maybe it's because I'm 62 and have been through so much that I'm able to sort out what really needs my attention - and what are just things and people that are going to fade away anyway."
Sharon — who has been married twice, to Michael Greenburg and Phil Bronstein — also spoke about her love life, and admitted she isn't a fan of dating sites because they don't allow potential partners to build "real chemistry".
She said: "Dating sites are just not a successful thing. Because real chemistry, that frisson, that happens in the air — not on a site. And people are becoming less socially adept because of those sites."
Ratched premiered on Netflix on Sept 18 (Fri). — BANG
