She seems to get more beautiful as the years go by, and now Sharon Stone has revealed how growing older has changed her views on life... and in particular her sex life.

The 55 year old is featured in New You magazine, and speaks up about how her desires have changed as she has aged.

"As women, we understand our bodies, and there's a blossoming that occurs (with sex.)

"We're hungry for gourmet meals instead of the fast food. We bring to life a more expansive understanding of life, ourselves, and others. We are more generous and assertive," she says.

While many Hollywood actresses are said to fear the ageing process, Sharon has wholeheartedly embraced it, and believes it is possible to feel beautiful at any age, especially in your fifties.

"It's not like fifty is the new thirty. It's like fifty is the new chapter. We know so much at this age, and people realise we're the ones with experience. We're a very colourful generation that is leading once again."

She also points out that people are afraid of change, connecting that idea with the current obsession with plastic surgery.

"If you have things that you want to fix, you should go right ahead and fix them. But I don't think it's alright to distort yourself."

A facelift isn't on the agenda for the star, who says she won't be succuumbing to plastic surgery to smooth out any of her wrinkles.

"I can't tell you how many doctors try to sell me a facelift. I've even gone as far as having someone talk me into it, but when I went over and looked at pictures of myself, I thought, "What are they going to lift?"

"Yes, I have come close - but, frankly, I think that in the art of aging well there's this sexuality to having those imperfections. It's sensual."

If only we could all have killer cheekbones and a flawless body in our mid fifties.

Is it ever OK to complain about other people's kids?

Yes, children should be seen and not heard.

No, let kids be kids and let off steam.

It depends on the situation.
