Actress Sharon Stone, is happier than ever and she is screaming it from the Italian rooftops! The 60-year-old Basic Instinct actress has found love again with her real estate mogul beau, Angelo Boffa, 41, after years of being “broken.”

As they recently cuddled by a bay in the Balearic Islands of Spain, Sharon and Anthony seemed happier than ever. For a woman who earlier this year had said, “others aren’t that interested in a broken person,” it seems as though she has truly put her life back together following her years of recovery from a brain hemorrhage — and now she’s found love again.

Friends say Sharon and Anthony met last January, the same time she was promoting her new series, HBO’s Mosaic. “Sharon was fixed up with him by mutual Italian friends,” an insider exclusively told Closer Weekly. “He was starstruck, which she normally can’t stand, but she fell for him fast, and he quickly realized how amazing and down-to-earth she really was.”

Angelo is outgoing, “loves life and food, very Italian,” said the insider, and the pairing suits Sharon’s independent spirit. Real relationships “are pretty hard to come by,” said the twice-divorced actress and mother of three sons, Roan, 18, Laird, 13, and Quinn, 12. “We were raised to accommodate men, particularly in my generation, [but] I was just not that girl who was told that a man would define me.”

With Angelo, she feels free to be herself, since “he has his own life and friends,” the insider explained. “She loves that he’s unapologetic and embraces life.” Together the couple like to hit the beach, and Angelo makes Italian food for her and her boys. And they’re “taking it as it comes,” said the insider, since Sharon’s “not keen” to marry a third time.
