Sharon Stone is both "astounded" and "grateful" to find herself modelling at the age of 62.

The Basic Instinct star expressed her gratitude to those who had brought her onboard for jobs this year as she shared out an Instagram post.

"I am not only astounded but grateful that I am still modeling at 62, La Dolce Vita, Thx to everyone who hired me this year," Stone wrote.

Stone has previously diluted that she found it difficult to accept her body as she aged.

Earlier this year, she shared that she had battled with herself in her forties over the way she looked.

“I started to cry at the sight of my slightly ageing body and face in the magnifying mirror. But you are not completely powerless and can slow down the process enormously if you pull yourself together, eat disciplined and exercise a lot," she added.

Stone has recognised how looks “matter” because they can play a big role in how people are treated, remarking a few months ago that "it’s a big, fat stupid lie if anyone says that they don’t".
