Sharon Stone looks flawless and sexy at 56 while wearing a mesh black bodysuit on the cover of GQ Italia -- see the impressive picture

Nothing basic about this! Sharon Stone looks unrecognizable at 56 as she strikes a sexy, flawless pose on the May 2014 cover of GQ Italia.

The Basic Instinct actress stuns in a black mesh bodysuit for the incredible photo, as she raises her arms above her head. The cleavage-baring suit leaves little to the imagination as it shows off her toned legs and svelte figure.

Stone may appear confident, but has admitted before that she's struggled with aging. "It hasn't been easy," she said in Shape's March 2014 issue. "There was a point in my 40s where I went into the bathroom with a bottle of wine, locked the door, and said, 'I'm not coming out until I can totally accept the way I look right now.'"

"I examined my face in the magnifying mirror, and I looked at my body, and I cried and cried and cried," she continued. "Then I said to myself, 'You're going to get old now. How do you want to do that?'"

The answer came simply for Stone. "I thought, 'I'd like to age like a dancer.' I want to keep my body in shape like that," she said. "I want to do the work. I like to dance and stretch. And I'm going to the gym."

She also cut out wine. "I don't drink at all now," she confessed to Shape. "I think, at a certain point, it's better for women not to have any alcohol because it can make your face, breasts and midsection get very bloated."
