Sharon Stone goes topless and rocks string bikini bottom in new Instagram photo

Sharon Stone is stripping down for summer.

With the temperatures soaring and the sun shining bright, the What About Love star is taking the concept of naked dressing quite literally.

On July 10, the award-winning actress, 66, took to Instagram with a photo of her posing topless and wearing nothing but a necklace and turquoise bikini bottoms with string ties on the waist.

“Sometimes I just have to go from pool to painting,” she captioned the picture, which shows her finger painting a piece of work splashed in bold colors as she faces away from the camera.

This wouldn’t be the first time Stone has shared an outfit-of-the-day snap of the sort on social media. Over the years, she’s posed in plenty of sexy bathing suits.

In June 2021, she soaked up the sun in a yellow two-piece consisting of a scoop-neck top and mid-rise briefs — and she shared an Instagram post to prove it.

She did the same thing two years later when she uploaded a mirror selfie of herself rocking a green leopard-print bikini — featuring a plunging top and high-rise bottoms — that she captioned, “Ready for summer.”

Several of Stone’s famous friends gave her a shoutout in the comments. “#summergoals,” wrote Tiffani Thiessen. Brooke Burke wrote, “Yaaaaasssss queen. I don’t think you’ve ever been more sensual.”

It’s also no surprise that Stone is spending the dog days of summer getting creative with her artistry.

In March 2023, the mom of three opened up to The Art Newspaper about her love for painting ahead of the opening of her first solo gallery exhibition, "Shedding.”

Stone, who received painting lessons from her Aunt Vonne as a kid and later pursued painting at Edinboro University in Pennsylvania, told the outlet that she’d put her love for the art form aside as her acting career took off. She returned to her passion decades later, after the COVID pandemic happened.

"I bought real brushes and I started to regain my control, my brush movements," Stone said. "I painted and painted and painted, and I re-found myself. I re-found my heart. I re-found my center."

“Shedding” was Stone’s way of symbolizing shedding different kinds of things like her Hollywood persona and loss.
