Sharon Stone: It’s A "Big, Fat, Stupid Lie" If Anyone Says Looks Don’t Matter

Sharon Stone said she's more focused on keeping her good looks now that she's older.

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
