Though she's been divorced from her second husband for more than 10 years, Sharon Stone admits it's been difficult to find love again — because men are intimidated by her!
“I wish more guys would throw themselves at me. Guys run away. People bought into the story that I’m a sex symbol but I’m not really. I’m really the girl with the baggy clothes and the bag of books," the 57-year-old actress said in a new interview.
“People are afraid of me," she added.

Sharon — who first rose to fame with her sexy role in the 1992 thriller Basic Instinct — noted the primary male attention she receives today is from her three sons, Roan, 15, Laird, 10, and Quinn, 9.
"They’re at that age when they’re starting to become little men... they’re starting to carry my bags to the car and open the door for me. And they’re leaving notes on the steering wheel of my car like, ‘Have a wonderful day at work,'" the proud mom said of her boys.

“They are so great and they make me feel beautiful, like I have a purpose," she told The Daily Mirror.
Sharon was first married to producer Michael Greenburg from 1984 until 1990. Following their split, she wed her second husband, Phil Bronstein — with whom she had son Roan in 2000 — in 1998, but they too separated by 2004. The actress adopted sons Laird and Quinn in 2005 and 2006, respectively.
