Talking about Hillary Clinton, Sharon Stone says this:
“Hillary is, for me, the best Secretary of State we’ve had since Henry Kissinger, and Kissinger couldn’t run because of his status as a citizen, but Hillary, man or woman, is just such a great person to be President because of her global understanding that she’s garnered being Secretary of State.
“She’s an educated woman who’s been in politics all of her life, and for me to play VP during this prescient moment when women are in so many powerful positions politically and when we’re apt to have a woman as President, it’s a very exciting time in the world to be playing something that is really in that moment, that historical moment.”
Well aware that perfection is an illusion at any age, Stone declares that today’s nude shoot is actually easier for her to face than the Playboy series. “I’m aware that my ass looks like a bag of flapjacks,” she jokes. “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. If I believed that sexy was trying to be who I was when I did Basic Instinct, then we’d all be having a hard day today.’”
