Real Beauty: Sharon Stone

“I don’t eat processed food. I don’t drink caffeine, and very rarely will have a soda or alcohol,” says Sharon Stone, 59, in an interview with the New York Times.  “But I eat meat and dark chocolate. I sugar my tea if I feel like it. I have celiac disease, so I don’t eat gluten. Otherwise, I just eat like a person — whatever I’m hungry for.”

What is Celiac Disease? 

Celiac disease is a serious autoimmune disorder that can occur in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. Two and one-half million Americans are undiagnosed and are at risk for long-term health complications.

Around 3-8 % of people with type 1 diabetes will have biopsy-confirmed celiac disease, so people with this condition would benefit from regular celiac disease screening.

The actress, who is currently starring in  with HBO’s ‘Mosaic’,  says, “I do Pilates — I have a machine in my house. Or I go to a gym and circuit train depending on what mood I’m in. Or I might put on music and dance my brains out. I’m not the person who will get on a treadmill and stare at a wall.”

“I am a stroke survivor so I am extremely grateful to be ageing – I have nothing but gratitude for the passing years. My grandmother died of a stroke and my mother had a stroke. I am ageing – lucky, lucky me!”

The movie icon, who has made over 30 films says, “Also, for me, it’s more about real inner beauty. It’s important to have a philosophy or way of life or faith that keeps you balanced. For me, that has been Buddhism. It’s something that brings you back to center, and is really the key to serenity and beauty — an internal sense of form and elegance.”

Speaking to the new issue of Grazia magazine, Sharon Stone said: ‘I was just not that girl who was told that a man would define me.

‘I was told that if I wanted to have a man in my life, it wouldn’t be an arrangement, it would be an actual partnership. And those are hard to find.’
