London: Basic Instinct actress Sharon Stone, once named the world's most beautiful woman, has admitted she felt ugly after suffering a brain haemorrhage.

The 53-year-old underwent medical surgery in 2001 to get rid of the illness and she thought that she would never be beautiful again."The side of my face was falling down. I thought who's going to want to be around me? 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," Sharon said.

Sharon has since regained her looks.
