Sharon Stone sure knows how to pay a compliment to fellow actresses.

In an interview with the British magazine Tatler, Stone, 51, heaps odd praise on the physical appearance of Meryl Streep, 60.

"I think that's why Meryl Streep is working so much, because she looks like a woman we can all relate to," Stone said.

Did Sharon make it onto the worst-dressed list for 2009?

"I look at her and I think, 'I'm chasing my kids, I've moved my parents in with me, I'm coping with food spills - that looks like me in real life'."

The always-outspoken Stone doesn't exactly quit while she's ahead discussing Streep, the multiple Oscar-winner and current star of the hit It's Complicated. She goes on to add, "Meryl looks like an unmade bed," Stone says. "That's what I look like. To me, that looks true."

(On Friday, Stone clarified her comments about Streep. "It is not OK with me for someone to take a statement I made with good-natured intent and to try and make it in to something politically incorrect," she told UsMagazine.com in a statement. "My love and support for what she represents for women right now is extraordinarily important.")

As far as her own looks, Stone insists that she's 100% bonafide: "I have had zero, nothing done to myself: no lifting, no Botox, no injectables," she said.

Backtracking a bit, she clarifies, "I did try something once, and I saw myself in a movie and didn't like the way I looked. I thought I looked like I had a giant balloon head, and I felt it wasn't for me."

How does the Basic Instinct star keep her looks, then? "The old-fashioned way," she tells Tatler. "To go to the gym and take care of your internal life. It might take more effort but you get something nicer to give back to the world."
