Seemingly ageless actress Sharon Stone has a new basic instinct: for gardening. “It lines your body, mind, and spirit up in a way,” she says, “particularly when you’re trying to get yourself in your creative work.”

Sharon, 51, who hasn’t starred in a hit film since 2006’s Bobby, has a lot of time to indulge her green thumb.

“What I am finding is that when you start to really clear old, dead things,” she says, “and really take that time to take away the old stuff and organize a garden and clear out and get in the dirt and weed things out and then see the new stuff that’s coming up and move things around.

“This time that you take that actually takes some labor and is meditative and organized with nature, you can get yourself in a harmonious place.”
