EXCERPT: Sharon Stone: "I Have No Idea What's Next"
SHARON: It has just been a journey. Painful, exhilarating. The people that I've met and the things, the kind of, it's just unbelievable. The camaraderie in this journey has just been extraordinary. I love my career. I love my life. I love my family. I even love the people that burned me to the ground because they were my best teachers. You know everybody says I'd like to get rid of my anger. Well you know, you're not gonna get rid of your sense of humor. Why would you get rid of your anger? They're all qualities that we have. Life is not black and white. It's very many shades between black and white. It's so wonderful to be present, up to SPEED in my own life, and not know what kind of movies am I going to do next, what kind of teaching am I going to do next, what country am I going to next with my humanitarian work - I have no idea what's next.

EXCERPT: Sharon Stone on Beauty: "I Want to Be a Woman. I Don't Want to Be A Girl"
SHARON: I have no lack of confidence about being a women and my own womanly beauty. I don't believe that being nineteen or twenty or twenty-five or thirty or thirty-five, that any of these moments are the moment of ultimate beauty. I think that there's somewhere along the line we started selling the idea that being a girl was the beauty. Don't we have goals about not just being boys and girls forever? Don't we want to be men and women? I want to be a woman. I don't want to be a girl. Being a girl was hard. You know? Fun, I had a great time. I see girls who are beautiful and young having a great time, go, I don't want to be a girl anymore. Loved it, love being a woman.
