"I think we all should be so lucky and fortunate to be in a romance with Sharon Stone," Fox, 37, told PEOPLE at the seventh annual Make-a-Wish Foundation Wish Night gala on Friday in Beverly Hills.
"We've been friends for a number of years and continue to enjoy each other's company when we get together. She's quite the busy woman. We share the same agent, we share a best friend. I've got to say I enjoy her company. As for romance defined by Hollywood standards, that would be reaching."
Fox, who has a daughter, Sasha, 6, with Ugly Betty star Vanessa Williams, his wife from 1999 to 2004, and a son, Kyle, 14, with college sweetheart Kari Hillsman, said he's met Stone's kids, sons Roan, 6, Laird, 1, and Quinn, 6 months: "The last time we spent any time with our kids together was at a Globetrotters game at the Staples Center."
He would like to be in a relationship, he said: "I'm trying to get this dating thing right, but I'm trying to find someone in my life that I can settle down and have a romance with."
In the meantime, Fox continues to pursue his acting career: The former L.A. Laker has appeared on the CW's One Tree Hill and in the 2006 Alec Baldwin movie Mini's First Time.
