Sharon Stone thinks Lindsay Lohan is not having her "health care" needs met.

The Hollywood star - who worked with the troubled actress on movie 'Bobby' in 2006 - believes the 24 year old is having issues because of her public "position" and needs medical help.

She said: "I don't think it's a question of her youth. But it's a question of the fact she clearly needs some actual health care. And I think perhaps because of her position, it's very difficult for the legal system to give her the actual practical care that she needs.

"I would not try to give her advice. I would just wish that there is a way that the system can somehow provide her with the actual health care that she needs."

The 'Basic Instinct' beauty believes the fact her own career took off later in life meant she never had to deal with the problems a new generation of young stars have.

Speaking on CNN's 'Pierce Morgan Tonight' TV show, Sharon said: "I think that's a really much more complex and difficult thing than what happened to me when I became famous when I was 32. So I was a grounded adult ... I had such dear, good friends who really guided me. Friends in the entertainment business."

A number of stars have given advice to Lindsay - who is currently facing jail over the alleged theft of a necklace while on probation - including troubled actor Charlie Sheen and former drug addict Christian Slater who revealed he "reached out" to the young beauty.

He said: "Addiction is not pretty and you don't fully understand it unless you're dealing with it head-on.

"That's why when I see other kids struggling, I will sometimes reach out to them - a call or an email."
