Hollywood actress Sharon Stone is on the lookout for an old-fashioned man who is willing to pay for everything on dates.

The Basic Instinct beauty, who recently divorced her third husband PHIL BRONSTEIN, is currently dating and is keeping her eye open for the perfect gentleman.

She says, "I like guys that are kind and funny and I like old-fashioned guys with good manners. I like that they stand up when you come in, they open the door. I like when they pay!"

Stone also admits a man's vehicle is very important.

She adds, "I am that shallow. But it doesn't have to be, like, the fancy car. I could go out with a guy because he had an EL CAMINO. When I was young, my dad wouldn't let me go out with guys who had vans."

But Stone admits her men must have one or two imperfections.

She explains, "I like 'em when they're bad at the right times! I'm not into the big muscle thing too much.

"The older you get the better it gets."
