London: Hollywood actress Sharon Stone has men in their 20s chasing after her but says she is not happy with her love life.

The 52-year-old actress, best known for her glamorous role in `Basic Instinct`, has compared her love life to the barren Mojave desert.

Stone, who still boasts of an hour-glass figure, has been married and divorced thrice and has been living a single life in recent years.

"Life and love is like the ocean. Sometimes the tide is in and sometimes the tide is out, and sometimes it`s like the frigging Mojave. Where`s the tide now? For me? Mojave!

Fortunately, I like the desert. I`m a desert flower," Stone said in an interview with US magazine `More`.

But Stone says she is not short of offers from younger men.

"I really get pursued by men in their 20s, like a lot. They probably know there`s food in the fridge and that somebody`s going to talk to them and ask them how their day was."

The mother-of-three, who is celebrated for her looks, says that for a long time she struggled to accept her beauty and says no one thought her beautiful before her break-out role in 1992 film `Basic Instinct`.

"I turned to one friend and I was like: `Look how great they made me look. It`s unbelievable. He goes: `That`s how you look`. I`m like: "No, no. Really. Look what they did".

"I couldn`t get hired because no one thought I was sexy," she said.
