Sharon Stone has announced that she is back on the market.

The Basic Instinct star said she would like to find love again now that her three children are a little older.

She told Mario Lopez during a chat with Extra: "I am available for dating."

Sharon, 56, has been busy raising her adopted sons Roan, 14, Laird, nine, and eight-year-old Quinn, but feels it's the right time to give her love life a boost.

"What's happened is my kids have reached the age where I feel comfortable to date," she said.

"I didn't want to date when they were little... who needs a bunch of people running in and out of their lives? Now I feel comfortable dating."

Sharon has previously been married twice, to television producer Michael Greenburg from 1984 to 1990 and to Phil Bronstein from 1998 to 2004.
