She hit headlines recently after pictures of her raunchy photoshoot for a French fashion magazine surfaced, but it looked as if the storm the snaps caused was the last thing on Sharon Stone's mind this week.
The Basic Instinct beauty was in chill mode as she joined friends for dinner in the upmarket Italian resort of Porto Cervo, Sardinia.
She arrived on the Italian isle on Wednesday for an end of summer break.
While much has been made of the mum of three's decision to strip off for the cameras at the age of 51, Sharon says she shouldn't have to restrict what she does just because she's getting older.
"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," she said.
"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."
