Sharon Stone nearly ‘killed herself’ making ‘Casino’.
The actress didn’t eat for a week before filming a crucial scene because she was so desperate to impress director Martin Scorsese by looking ‘skinny and out of it’.
Recalling her preparation for the role – which saw her nominated for the 1995 Best Actress Academy Award – Sharon said: ‘I nearly actually physically killed myself making ‘Casino’
‘We did the death scene on the last day because Scorsese knew I wanted to get just so completely skinny and out of it.
‘In the final week I didn’t eat, I didn’t do anything, I just made myself a complete wreck so that I could get skinny, skinny, skinny, skinny and down to nothing. I lost so much weight.’
Since she entered her 50s, Sharon is far more relaxed about her body and thinks she is getting sexier with every year.
The 51-year-old blonde star explained to Prestige magazine: ‘You should just be confident and comfortable and at ease and OK to be sexy in middle age as a woman. It’s fun. And not a big deal.
‘We should be able to appreciate that sensuality and sexuality go along with this motto of wisdom and intelligence and dignity and elegance as a goal.’
