Thought I will never be pretty again after haemorrhage: Stone

London: ‘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.
