London: Sharon Stone may have been named among one of the most beautiful women in the world, but even she is not immune to feeling insecure about her looks.
The ‘Basic Instinct’ actress admitted that she felt downright ugly after her brain haemorrhage in 2001.
“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 Daily Mail quoted her as telling AARP The Magazine.
“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.
She also revealed that, in the past dozen years, she’s suffered two miscarriages, which led to her 2004 divorce from Phil Bronstein.
Stone lost primary custody of the couple’s now 11-year-old son, Roan, who visits her monthly.
Though she has certainly suffered her hardships, today she is feeling strong about her looks, family and career.
She dotes on the two sons she does have custody of, six-year-old Laird and Quinn, 5.
“I love raising my kids. Quinn is in junior kindergarten, and he’s very exclamatory! Like a little FBI agent, he tells you everything that’s happening, so I call him Agent Quinn,” she said.
“I’ve made humanitarian causes and my children much more my priority than the Hollywood scene, being liked and getting movie parts,” she added.
