Sharon Stone for Paris-Match: NSFW

What? Did you think we weren't going to have an opinion on this?








On the one hand, we're all "You GO, Sharon! You fabulous crazy old whore!" On the other hand, we're all "Kiss the remains of your career goodbye, you plain old crazy whore!" On the other, other hand, we're all "She's 50 and she looks fantastic!" On the other, other, other hand (there's 4 hands between the two of us) we're all "Shyeah! And she paid good money for that bod."

In short, these pictures are a study in contrasts. Said contrasts being the line between daring/fabulous and pathetic/attention-whoring.

What say you, minions?

Meh, could have done with out the nipples. Maybe it's a lesser known magazine and people won't read it, so she will be okay.... i really don't care about her that much


I didn't realize she still had a career.


They look more like illustration than photographs. Someone needs to come up with a name for this medium. Hyper-photoshopism?


I'm in the "If you's got it flaunt it" camp, even if what you've got has to be photoshopped. It's not like this is going to tarnish her image.


I agree with Anon 8.49: there is really no other "career" for her to be jeopardizing - this IS her only career at this point. In these terms, it's a success.

p.s. Paris Match is NOT a lesser known magazine!!!


"Samony said...Maybe it's a lesser known magazine"


That is one of the most popular magazines in Paris.


I had no idea that Paris Match raided the wardrobe of the Fifth Element!

Sharon looks fantastic--and she should, she put in the money and the time!


TLo said...What say you, minions?

I say that if you are going to be an attention whore then do it right, and at least she did it right this time. I always want to smack her for walking around wearing stuff meant for a woman half her age with the same slumpy posture that should be reserved for an insecure young'un. My only complaint about this spread is that why couldn't the stylist find any more than two skanky ensembles to put her in... after all this was shot in Paris (presumably), Old French Whore Central.


WOW, she looks great, but still, WOW!


I agree with Sewing Siren. They really do look like drawn pictures by a damn good artist. Otherwise, yeah that's the way to attention whore


[YAWN!!]

what won't Ms. Stone do for attention? look for her pic next to "attention whore" in wikipedia.

yeah, she's got a great body for her age, the best that $ can buy even.

but the posing of the body looks funny.

srq


I'm afraid that if we applaud her moxie, she just might reward us with more...um... exposure.

But the shoes do look great on her. LOL


"Pathetabluous."

This is odd. She has a killer body at 50, and can wear anything. So ... she dresses in the tackiest stuff on the face of the planet?

The question here isn't whether Sharon Stone should dress like that; the question is, should ANYONE dress like that, under any circumstances that don't involve a stage with a pole? I say no. If you can wear anything you want, err on the side of dignity.


I also noted that it was strange that they used the same outfit for two very similar photos.

However, any woman who can wear over-the-thigh boots and look so damn good, can flaunt it. Those boots wouldn't go past my ankles.

As far as the exposed breasts, c'mon. This is in Paris. France. Ever seen their commercials and T.V. shows? This is tame. Topless is nothing.


For some reason, when I look at the topless ones, I envsion little x's of black electrical tape over the nips. It would have made a TAD more classy but still maintained the edge.

However, g'damn she looks good!

Gotta say, if I looked like that at her age I might want the world to see it too! Hell, if I looked like that at my current age I might be showing the world! lol


And on the OTHER hand I say one word:
Photoshop!


All I can think is how much better she looks than Madonna.


They love nudity in France. You can't find a pharmacy in the entire country without a window full of naked women advertising anti-cellulite creams, tanning products and general body perfection. This cover is perfectly normal there. It would be more shocking if she was all covered up. Really, it would make headlines given her popularity there and general reputation for showing off her bits.

As for the subject..she must have got turned down by Playboy.


Seriously, what is up with th positioning of her body? her leds look uber-weird, and it's like she's shoving her crotch in our face. doesn't shock or impress me. I agree the annon who said "YAWN"


opps, that should obviously be "legs" not "leds" - soffee come save me!!


or coffe... maybe I just need to go back to bed...


I think the pictures say two things:

> how brainwashed we are by skinny. A woman over 35 looking good means she's still skinny.

> how far women haven't come. She may a 50 ans but a hot body is still her primary currency.


She looks great, but it's boring! She's obviously got a fabulous body (for any age - I never looked like that at 20!), but that's all the photos say. The image projected is predictable and unimaginative.

I could not agree more. If I had her money (she still DOES have money??) and her body (obviously has the bod, unless the photoshop chipped away lots of flab and cellulite), WHY would she dress like a Bunny Ranch reject?


She's nuts. Let her go nuts.


WHERE ARE THOSE FABULOUS BOOTS FROM?!


Sewing Siren said: "Hyper-photoshopism?"

There ya go! Do you think it's in the Physicians' Desk Reference?

Bob Scrivens said, "If you can wear anything you want, err on the side of dignity."

You said it. Though I don't know. . . maybe her idea of dignity is showing that your breasts haven't sagged. Oy.


After she showed her pusetta on a movie screen, does she really think her little bee-sting boobies are that shocking?


Ya know, if she looks, in "real life" anywhere near as good as she does as photo-shopped, then I say "god bless you darlin' & if this is how you want to enjoy the results you bought with surgery, gym time, and diet - go for it. Sometimes it's better just to feed our crazy than it is to try to therapize it away."

OTOH, if she looks as I imagine she does, well, I can only hope she gets it under control before her oldest kid (around 8 or 9 now, I think), gets much older. It's bad enough that the other boys in 7th grade are going to be able to find these pics some day . . .


I wasn't real clear - if she looks like the semi-rejuvenated Ms. Havisham I suspect w/out the photo-shopping to correct for 50+ skin & other imperfections - and then dresses like a 19 yr old - those preteen boys are gonna be waaay grossed out & her kids waaaay embarassed.


I'm wondering how awkward it will be when her kid(s) (can't remember if she has more than one kid) discover these photos, or get taunted about them on the school playground. AWKWARD!

Yes, she's hot. But how much is photo shop, how much is plastic surgery, and how much is HER? Frankly, I don't care.

She's just a fame whore who will not go gentle into that good night.

No f'in kidding. Did they pay her in cheap plastic beads?


Stripper
Barbie
Whore


Amy sez..
Puh..lease. I work in prepress production and believe me...anyone can look fabulous with professional styling, lighting, photography and tons of photoshopping.


Her age comes to mind when I look at these pictures. Instead of thinking "wow" I'm thinking "okay, but isn't she old and what kind of trickery happened for her to look like this." Probably not the kind of reaction she was going for.


I mean...
-She looks fabulous, surgery or no.
-It takes serious guts to put it all out there like this at 50.
-She's Sharon. This isn't exactly surprising.

But...
But...
I'm kind of at a loss, so I'll just quote another fabulous old bitch...I think there's a serious taste issue here.

Yeah. My first thought was, does posing topless make the boob job tax deductable?

"Tlo said: What say you, minions?"




I say; her whole career is built on not wearing underwear anyway, so what the hell.

Nailed it, Lulu.


Well. Hello, nipples.

It's Sharon Stone. Enough said?


All I keep thinking, every time I see another celebri-slut whoring it for fame, is that my grandmother must be rolling over in her grave. Heck, I'M rolling over in MY grave, and I'm not even dead yet.


Her boobs look really fake. Even a 18 year old with tits at the height of their natural perk are not so round that scientists can calibrate their instruments by them. I'd respect her more if she weren't such a laboratory experiment. She's all Frankenhooker. It's not appealing.


Can I just say how much I love Gotham Tomato ? LMAO

I totally agree BB-- I think it is pathetic and sad-- maybe all the plastic in the plastic surgery has made it's way to her brain. Or her brain has been eaten by zombies.

EXACTLY, Sharon Stone's fame was built on crossing and uncrossing her legs. If her kids have the type of "friends" who would make a big deal out of seeing one of their peers' moms nekkid, then they are too busy feasting on Basic Instinct - this little layout pales in comparison.


You know, I am not that freaked out by the nudity, and I hope to one day where such fabulous boots, even if it's just in the privacy of my own home. My issue is that she isn't helping herself at all by posing like this. Her remaining fans already know she still has the (surgically enhanced) goods, so no need to prove anything. And the folks who don't like Sharon don't like her precisely because she does stuff like this that reeks of sad, desperate crazy, so she isn't doing herself any favors or winning new fans.

And "Frankenhooker"? Bwaaaahaaahaa!


I suspect the repetitive crotch thrusting pose positions leg mucsles and skin for maximum flattery.
And as a 50 something woman myself, I can tell you it's no coincidence that no breast is bared unless the adjacent arm is over her head. Arms are only lowered where she's wearing the bandeau bra or coyly covering with her hand. There's only so much you can do to counteract gravity.


OK I have a tecnhical question about the boobs, because while I don't find it hard to believe that they are bought and paid for, I associate boob jobs with having a globular result. Is there such a thing as a boob job that does not add, just perks up?


Nudity = whore?

I'd say that shows how far women haven't come.


I'd say... "Sharon, dear, please put it away." Here is a woman who really needs a time-consuming hobby.


I'm a little surprised by all the negative comments.

Given the prevalence of photoshopping, these days I don't automatically accept any image as "real." And of course you can do a lot just with lighting and body make-up. I'd be curious to see what her body looks like without all the manipulation but if it's even anywhere close to this then that's pretty amazing. SS has always been a provocateur and her stock-in-trade has been her fabulous body so why stop now? I'm not really getting the desperate/sad vibe from these.

And she does look a million times better than Madge, as someone else pointed out earlier.


It's Paris Match and Sharon Stone. Of course there will be exposed nipples. I'm of two minds about this as well. Hell, if I looked that good I'd probably show them off. But then again, probably not.


It would be nice if a woman could get attention or feel that she could get attention without taking off her clothes or showing up practically naked at an event.


Sweet fancy Moses.

The first thing that popped into my head when I saw the pictures was "What the hell has Brigitte Nielsen done now?"

I'm confident that's what Sharon was going for.


NOT... I'm confident that's NOT what Sharon was going for.

Saraf - pour some soffee for me too, please. :)


Love it. Just love it. BECAUSE she's 50 and in your face.

Doing this at 20: famewhore and maybe just plain whore.

Doing this at 50: Flaunt it, baby.


Does anyone know where those stockings are from?


To Fresca: I don't think anyone here is calling her a whore in the traditional sense or calling her a whore because she's showing her breasts. I think most of the comments are calling her a FAME whore. There is a difference.


Sharon models crazy like a pro.......


I'm obviously in the minority but I think she's pretty fabulous.


Ew. Desperate much?


Looks like they let one of the interns do her inner-thigh photoshopping on that last pic. There's a clear indent/cut on each thigh about 1/3 the way down where they forget to smooth in their "shrinking" work.

She looks great. With or without photoshopping.

Yes, it's called a breast lift. Depending which type of breast lift you get, though, it might leave a visible scar.


I third the opinion that "this is a million times better than Madonna doing anything remotely similar".


I think the poses are of her about to fall from those ridiculous high heels... TIMBBBBERRRRR
If Sharon Stone falls and there's no one to see her go splat, did she really fall?


i'm not dorothy gale

She's only 50?? Dear God I forsee a Sylvia Miles do-over as the years march on. That bitch will do just about anything for attention and babies, you sure as hell gave it to her!


Why do women think that we care at all what mother nature imbued them with when it comes to bare breasts? Sharon is a peanut, 5'2", weighs about 100 soaking wet (with the new boob job add 1/4 pounder with cheese). WIth crayon coloration the effect of small bowling balls for boobs ins complete, just as any hard up starlet, but wait, SHE IS NO HARD UP STARLET, she had a complete career for someone of a pitifully limited range (she hit a high note big time wise with Casino).

Pulling a hottest of them all in Gay Paree makes sense, it is what they all try to do, get all new coverage elsewhere where they will be APPRECIATED. Now she can mini me as Bridget Neilson whom she is covering, a foot smaller but exact same effect. Bridget got all done over again recently too, and I would rather look at her new body. Sharon the shameless continues on. Talent? What talent? Sharon who?


I've got two hands!

I like the second photo. It looks a bit daring and good humored and fun.

OTOH, the boob-baring pix just seem kind of pathetic and skanky and lame.

IMHO


I look at these photos and my first thought is, "What is the point of looking like this and still being alone?". Sharon must be more crazy than whore in "Crazy Old Whore", because she can't seem to keep a man. I don't know if perfectly toned premenopausal thighs are an indictment or celebration of the rampant narcissism of American society. And, I'm kind of shallow.


From anyone else it would look desperate and pathetic. from Sharon Stone *yawn* it's just Monday. Desperate and pathetic is her modus operandi these days. It would be more noteworthy if she was actually clothed.


Wow, some pretty harsh comments. You can tell this isn't a European readership.

Personally I think she looks pretty awesome. Photoshop is a powerful tool, but she has to look somewhat like this or they wouldn't bother. The outfits remind me of updated 50s pornwear -- not my taste, but she's rocking it. I don't understand the criticism about "buying" a bod like that. Hey, if I had the money I would.


Jay's swimsuit Season 1?


Hey, she's workin' what she knows she has. Can't fault anyone for doing that. All I can say is thank God she hasn't gone the Madonna ultra-ripped route.


My eyes feel violated. Put the nips away, please, Sharon.


If only I looked 1/2 that good. Thanks TLo, for allowing we minions to comment.


I call it pretty fabulous attention whoring


I'm going with the pathetic attention-whore votes. But I haven't been able to tolerate her since she pretended she didn't know her vagina was being filmed in Basic Instinct. Please!


I reacted well to the first photo, not so much the others. Maybe it was the fact that she was covered up yet still risque sexy, or maybe it's the laugh. Probably a mixture of the two. That picture, to me, says "That's right, I'm damn hot and I know it."

The others just lack that. Plus, the photoshop mess up on her thigh made me roll my eyes.


I know everybody is aware these pics are "air-brushed" with Photoshop or some software like that. But she is 51 y.o. and she looks amazing, with or without Photoshop.

You go crazy sexy whore! I love you just like that! :D


White Grace Jones without a sense of fun.


The Thinking Woman's Lisa Rinna.


Getting really tired of seeing this old bag constantly tightened up and then trying to look like a sexy 25-year-old. It would be far more convincing if we didn't see boobs in a shape that don't occur in nature.

This just doesn't seem like the path to getting those movie roles that go to elegantly aging actresses.


How old is she, really? If she was in Stardust Memories (W. Allen) a million years ago? I have believed that she successfully shaved off anyone's guess of years off her age since the git. Unless she graduated highschool at 14 or 15, which some do.

She still reminds me of a crazy widdle boy with a girl's apparatus who is conflusterated at it all. A mess. When she gets the attention for being "pretty" she is placed (like Madonna) otherwise, all hell's to pay. Who needs a person like that? And how is their schtick enhanced by their behavior? Don't you recall the saying, you can F** your way up to the middle. Seeya there Sharon!


*meant "placated" not "placed".


Miss Crawford is looking mighty desperate these days.


I am torn between "pathetabulous" and "Frankenhooker" as the funniest thing in the comments here.

I'm pretty sure that Basic Instinct 2 finished off whatever was left of her career. She might as well flaunt her fake boobs. They're all she's got left.


Skinny and stringy with false breasts. Sorry. Reminds me of Madonna and Cher and all the other artificial desperate starlets. Why put her adopted boys through this embarrassment. She is so OVER the effin hill. Not at all impressed.


It doesn't do anything for me, but I've never been a Sharon Stone fan. Still, if I had that body... And it's not uncharacteristic for her.


I totally agree with Tom and Lorenzo's take on this photo spread. I've met her twice here in S.F. She seems like a very nice person. I guess that I would have less of a problem with seeing her like this if she was giving us something else, like some real work, philanthropy, etc. Yes, she shows up for the token AIDS fund-raiser now and again. But other than that, all we see of her are "look at me" spreads. Yeah, she's beautiful [especially for her age]. But come on Sharon...give us something other than tits.


She's really starting to look like Brigitte Neilson to me. That has nothing at all to do with this particular photoshoot, however.


She looks fab and she is fab, most women that age are politely asked to fold, hide and shut up! Thanx Sharon for breaking boudaries and pathetic taboos.


shinything said "This cover is perfectly normal there. It would be more shocking if she was all covered up."

Well, as a french citizen that lives in France (yes this blog is read all over the globe ^^ ), I gotta correct some stereotypes that you have on the other side of the Atlantic. Well I agree that this type of cover isn't that shocking here, but it's not classical either. And we don't see nipples in every advertisement on TV! Yes, maybe more than in America, but not that often.

And no, I assure you that it would'nt be more shocking if she was covered -_-u

Btw I think the photos are kind of vulgar...

ps : sorry for my english, i may have some mistakes left...


Fine Photoshopping.

The real scoop would be, what do the unretouched photos look like?
