Basic Instinct star Sharon Stone says she was convinced that she'd lose her famous good looks forever after suffering a brain haemorrhage 11-years ago.
The 53-year-old actress was hospitalised in 2001 with a subarachnoid haemorrhage, resulting in a numb leg and memory loss, Daily Express reported.
"I came out of the hospital with short- and long-term memory loss. My lower left leg was numb. I couldn't hear out of my right ear. The side of my face was falling down. I thought, 'I'll never be pretty again. Who's going to want to be around me?'," she said.
But the blonde beauty managed to bounce back from the setback to continue her Hollywood career with roles in Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction, Catwoman and Alpha Dog, while she's lined up to appear in the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic.
