Sharon opened up about her early days in film, explaining she struggled to get cast before she stripped off for Playboy in a bid to get given lead female roles.

Then came her iconic Basic Instinct character, the seductive 1992 role she says has ‘dominated’ her life ever since.

Discussing whether the change triggered by #MeToo was noticeable to her, Sharon told the publication: ‘When I started as a model and actress, the term “fuckable” was equated with workable and camera.

‘It was a pretty misogynistic era twenty years ago. Mel Gibson, who is three years older than me, thought I was too old to star opposite him.’

Sharon also detailed the tough period in her life that followed the stroke she suffered in 2001, aged 43.

The dramatic life event disrupted her career, finances and her marriage, forcing the star to spend years in recovery, learning to speak and even see properly again. 

On learning to accept herself again and the process of ageing, Sharon said: ‘There was a point in my forties when I went into the bathroom with a bottle of wine, locked the door, and said: “I won’t get out until I can fully accept my body.” 

Sharon also detailed the pitfalls of modern dating and trying to find love again on dating apps.

Sharon was married to screenwriter Michael Greenburg from 1984 to 1987.

She then wed journalist Phil Bronstein from 1998 until 2004, with whom she raises son Roan, 19.

The star adopted two sons, Quinn, 13, and Laird, 14, on her own. 

Revealing she was getting to meet the kinds of men she’d never meet in real life, the star said she was currently chatting to an aeronautical engineer. 

However, she joked she has the ‘worst luck’ with men and had chatted to everyone from former convicts, to ‘socially awkward’ people or those who prefer their dog’s company to humans. 

‘You know, when you’re single at this age, there’s usually a reason for that. I count myself in there’, she said.
