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."

Sharon Stone has one of Hollywood's most enviable bodies – and she credits it to an unconventional workout.
"I put on dance mixes and I really dance my brains out at home because I enjoy that," the actress told PEOPLE at the New York premiere of her upcoming film Lovelace at the Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday.
"That saying – 'Dance like nobody is watching' – I do that. I dance like nobody's watching and I dance hard until I sweat and I think that that’s very good. It’s good for the mind and the body."
Along with her dedication to her dance moves, there's more that keeps Stone, 55, in phenomenal shape.

To the moon, Leo!
An unnamed bidder at Thursday night's amFAR Cinema Against AIDS Charity auction paid $1.5 million for a trip into outer space with Leonardo DiCaprio during the group's 20th anniversary gala at the Hotel du Cap-Eden Roc.
A few minutes later, after a lot of encouragement from guest emcee Sharon Stone, another couple paid $2.3 for two seats on the same Virgin Galactic voyage. All told, the evening brought in $25 million for the cause, up from $11 million last year.
All three astronauts will spend three days in training with DiCaprio in Texas and then sit next to him when they blast into the stratosphere aboard one of Sir Richard Branson's new fleet of spaceships.

Sharon Stone was once named PEOPLE's Most Beautiful woman, but ten years ago, after suffering a brain hemorrhage, she felt the complete opposite.
"The side of my face was falling down," she tells to AARP The Magazine of the experience that also left her with memory loss and numbness in her left leg. "I thought, 'I'll never be pretty again. Who's going to want to be around me?' "
Today, Stone, 53, is back on track. With a handful of films in the works, including the star-studded Linda Lovelace biopic, Lovelace, the actress also basks in the everyday joys of motherhood.

Sharon Stone denies ever recommending that her 8-year-old son get Botox treatments for foot odor, the actress's lawyer says in a statement.
"Sharon Stone never made this statement. It is a complete fabrication," says attorney Martin Singer.
The widely reported comment was contained in court papers as part of Stone's custody tangles with ex-husband, Phil Bronstein. The judge cited the alleged remark as an example of Stone's overreaction to son Roan's medical issues.

Sharon Stone has so overreacted to her 8-year-old son's health issues that she suggested he get a Botox treatment for his smelly feet, according to the judge in the actress's custody case.
In Superior Court papers, the judge also said Stone "delegates many of her parenting responsibilities to third parties" and has "simply refused" to participate in counseling unless her "schedule is accommodated and her demands are met."
"Such conduct on the part of any parent ... is unacceptable and does not serve the child's best interest," the San Francisco judge writes in the document, which is a tentative statement on Stone's motion to modify custody.
The judge has turned down Stone's request to move her son Roan to Los Angeles, where she lives, from his father Phil Bronstein's home in San Francisco. The actress is allowed visitation time with the child, getting some weekends and holidays.

Sharon Stone ex-husband Phil Bronstein has "permanent sole physical custody" of her their 8-year-old son, Roan, according to court papers.
A Superior Court judge found that the boy, who is living with his father in the Bay Area and attending school there, will remain with Bronstein unless Stone, who lives in L.A., relocates to San Francisco or Bronstein decides to move, according to minutes from a Sept. 12 custody hearing.
"The court does not find that (a) move away is in child's best interest," say the minutes. "Court finds that (Bronstein) can provide a more structured continuity, stable, secure, and consistent home that child, Roan, needs. (Bronstein) shall have permanent sole physical custody of child."

Sharon Stone issued another apology for her remarks at the Cannes Film Festival about the earthquakes in China.
"There have been numerous reports about what I said in Cannes," she said in a statement Wednesday. "I would like to set the record straight about what I feel in my heart and end all of the misunderstandings. Yes, I misspoke. I could not be more regretful of that mistake. It was unintentional. I apologize, those words were never meant to be hurtful to anyone, they were an accident of my distraction and a product of news sensationalism. I am deeply saddened by the pain that this whole situation has caused the victims of the devastating earthquake in China."
