Sharon Stone Poses Nude and Looks Incredible

Sharon Stone is back and she is looking better than ever in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar. Donning only glamorous jewels, the 57-year-old actress posed nude in a gorgeous black-and-white spread.

After a hiatus from big roles following a cerebral hemorrhage in 2001, the actress who gained her sex symbol status from the 1992 cult film "Basic Instinct" (we don't need to remind you of that infamous leg-crossing scene in that iconic white turtleneck dress), is ready to take back her A-list star position.

In the exclusive interview with the magazine, Stone opens up about the life-changing impact of the brain hemorrhage, which left her completely transformed. Taking two years to absorb all the internal bleeding, her body never returned to what it was before: her brain shifted; it took months for her to regain feeling in her leg; her vision wasn't normal for years; and she developed a stutter. On top of her health struggles, she was dealing with a divorce, loss of custody of her then-8-year-old son and a less-than-satisfying line of jobs.

"I thought, 'You know what? I got thrown off the bullet train, and now I'm going to have to crawl up a hill of broken glass, get back on the train that's going a million miles an hour, and work my way from the cattle car up,'" Stone told Harper's Bazaar on returning to focusing on her career. "That's just the way it is, so I'd better get humble and shut the fuck up and do the job. Because if I can't do this job, I'm certainly not going to be able to do anything else.'"

After all these challenges Stone is making her comeback in TNT's new series "Agent X" in which she plays the vice president of the United States in charge of a secret agent. Embracing her new role and a refreshing transition back into her world, Stone is accepting and loving herself, defining what is sexy on her own terms.

"I'm aware that my ass looks like a bag of flapjacks," Stone said to Bazaar. "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."
