Sharon Stone Opens Up About How She Forced Herself to Accept Aging

Originally posted 02/18/2014 09:00AM

No stranger to making jaws drop, Sharon Stone is likely to do it again with her latest magazine cover, but the actress says that getting older has been a struggle she's had to force herself to embrace.

"It hasn't been easy. There was a point in my 40s where I went into the bathroom with a bottle of wine, locked the door, and said, 'I'm not coming out until I can totally accept the way I look right now,' " Stone, 55, tells Shape for its March issue, on newsstands Wednesday.

"And I examined my face in the magnifying mirror, and I looked at my body, and I cried and cried and cried. Then I said to myself, 'You're going to get old now. How do you want to do that?' And I thought, 'I'd like to age like a dancer.' I want to keep my body in shape like that. I want to do the work. I like to dance and stretch. And I like going to the gym."

Matthew Hogg takes home brewing to a whole new level: Thanks to an excess of yeast in his digestive system, the 34-year-old British man gets as drunk from bread and pasta as his friends do from pints of lager.

Hogg's disease is called auto-brewery syndrome, a rare disorder in which his intestines produce ethanol – pure alcohol – from carbohydrates, leaving him drunk at worst, and tired and hungover at best.

Biggest Loser's Rachel Frederickson: Finding Balance Will Be 'Tricky'

Originally posted 02/13/2014 07:50AM

A week before the Biggest Loser finale, Rachel Frederickson admits she was working out upwards of six hours a day and eating 1,600 calories with no inkling of the whirlwind of controversy that would surround her dramatic weight-loss reveal.

"I got my butt in the gym because, I said, 'This is the last week. You better be working out,' " the voiceover actress, 24, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview three days after the Feb. 4 finale. "So I didn't take any jobs and I worked out an extra couple hours."

But now $250,000 richer, Frederickson is ready to put the critical comments about her 105-lb. figure behind her and adjust to life after the ranch.

Biggest Loser Winner Rachel Frederickson to PEOPLE: I Was 'Too Enthusiastic' with Training

When Rachel Frederickson revealed her new, size 0-2 figure on the Feb. 4 finale of NBC's The Biggest Loser, she thought she would wow friends, family and viewers – and maybe win the title of Biggest Loser.

She did win, but the 24-year-old voice actress also ignited a firestorm of controversy about her dramatically slimmed-down figure, down to 105 lbs. from her starting weight of 260 lbs. (At 5'4", her height-weight ratio puts her BMI at 18, below the threshold doctors consider normal.)

Sitting down with PEOPLE in Los Angeles, just days after she made headlines for her striking transformation, Frederickson says she maintained a 1,600-calorie daily diet, working out six hours a day in the three months before the finale.

As the public continues to debate whether The Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson had gone too far by dropping from 260 to 105 lbs., past winners of the NBC reality weight-loss competition shared their thoughts on the shocking reveal with PEOPLE.

"She did what she had to do," says season 10 winner Patrick House, who once tipped the scales at 424 lbs. and currently weighs 220.

"Rachel's transformation was like any Biggest Loser contestant," says the 6'2" House. "She had to do the best that she possibly could, and at the end of the day, there's a carrot dangling that's a quarter of a million dollars up for grabs."

The Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper admits he was shocked when he saw Rachel Frederickson walk out during Tuesday's finale and show off her exceedingly thin frame.

"I was stunned. That would be the word. I mean, we've never had a contestant come in at 105 lbs.," Harper says in an interview airing next Thursday on the Rachael Ray Show.

Frederickson, 24, started the show at 260 lbs. When she left as a finalist three months ago to work on losing weight at home, she weighed 150 lbs., and later lost 45 more.

When Rachel Frederickson left The Biggest Loser Ranch three months ago, she had the same goal shared by all of the show's contestants: to continue shedding weight.

But after returning to the show 45 lbs. lighter than she left it – for a total weight loss of 155 lbs. – the spotlight is now focused on whether Frederickson, 24, may have resorted to extreme measures to lose the additional weight in advance of the show's Tuesday finale.

Currently a size 0/2 and 105 lbs., Frederickson herself briefly addressed the controversy in a conference call on Wednesday.
