Sharon Stone, 61, looks a fraction of her age in blue bikini on Labor Day

Sexy at 61!

Sharon Stone spent her Labor Day weekend soaking up the sun in a light blue string bikini — and why wouldn't she? The Oscar-winning star is looking happy, healthy and hot as ever.

Stone posted an Instagram snap with two friends as she struck a poolside pose in her swimsuit and sunglasses. 

Great genes play a role, but Stone has credited her fit physique to a relatively strict diet and exercise she genuinely enjoys.

"You have to do what you like to do. If you hate to go to the gym, don't put yourself on a gym regimen," she told The Hollywood Reporter in 2014. "Do what you like to do, but do it every day. I love to dance, and I dance hard."

She also decided years ago to decided to abandon alcohol entirely after learning that Madonna had done the same.

"I was training and I wanted to get really cut up. I looked at Madonna — we're the same age — and I asked my trainer, 'What am I not doing? Find out what she's doing!'" Stone said. "She came back and said, 'I don't think she drinks any alcohol.' So I decided to try zero for three months. And I saw a huge difference."
