At 57, Sharon Stone poses nude for Harper's Bazaar's September issue, talking about her "bag of flapjacks," a.k.a. her butt. The actress admits that at this moment, she is more comfortable posing without a stitch of clothing on than ever before. She tells the magazine:
I’m aware that my ass looks like a bag of flapjacks but I’m not trying to be the best-looking broad in the world. At a certain point you start asking yourself, "What really is sexy?" It’s not just the elevation of your boobs. It’s being present and having fun and liking yourself enough to like the person that’s with you. If I believed that sexy was trying to be who I was when I did Basic Instinct, then we’d all be having a hard day today.
Oddly, Stone's comfort with herself isn't doing wonders the love department, as she admits, "I never get asked out. It's so stupid. I don't know what to do."
Flapjacks my ass.
