Hollywood superstar Sharon Stone has blasted off critics of her topless pictures, saying that the right to strip does not lie with young actresses only.
The 'Basic Instinct' star has bared all for the cover of French fashion magazine 'Paris Match' sporting nothing but bondage heels and underwear for the provocative shoot.
The 51-year-old actress is adamant that she has every right to show off her body without facing harsh criticism about her age.
"Is there an age when you're supposed to refrain from doing some things like showing your body? If someone is shocked by these photos that's a reflection on his own views on age," Contactmusic quoted Stone telling the magazine.
"What these photos represent is nothing surprising to me, my life didn't change at 50, I didn't change. I don't see where the provocation is. If I asked myself I probably wouldn't have done these photos as I don't consider myself provocative," Stone added.
