This month, Vogue Arabia celebrates the icon that is Sharon Stone with two gorgeous covers that see the Hollywood star decked out in a sunny Dolce & Gabbana gown, and a romantic Zuhair Murad creation. Within the pages of our September 2022 issue is a power-packed cover story, in which the actor chats with Syrian-American ex-CNN anchor Hala Gorani about some hard-hitting topics, from abortion laws in the United States to #MeToo, and her personal journey in the movie industry. In the midst of the conversation, Stone also put light on her own experiences with aging on a public stage, and falling in love.

During the interview, Gorani asked Stone about a report that stated the actor was removed from popular dating app Bumble because the company mistook her profile for a fraudulent one posing as the star. Looking back at the experience, Stone shared that while the profile was actually hers, she ended up deleting it herself as she moved on from online dating. “I’m not an algorithm dater,” she shared, saying that dating is something that she prefers to experience in a more natural manner, like “when you meet someone, and you have things in common and you have chemistry.” Musing over her romantic life, the star also shared, “I think I would have had more kids if I had a partner.”

On the topic of dating, Stone, who continues to be considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, opened up about aging, and how that has impacted her love life as well. While talking about Botox and filler, the star shared that she was once in a relationship with a younger man, who asked her, “You don’t use Botox or anything, do you?” The star’s retort: “‘It would probably be really good for your ego and mine if I did.’ I saw him one more time after that and then he wasn’t interested in seeing me anymore. If you don’t see me for more than that, you’ll please find your way to the exit.”
