Sharon Stone says a surgeon augmented her breasts without her knowledge or consent, making them a full cup-size bigger while she was under the knife. 

In her new memoir The Beauty of Living Twice, the Basic Instinct star explains how she underwent an operation in 2001 to reconstruct her breasts after several large benign tumours were removed. 

"When I was unbandaged, I discovered that I had a full cup-size bigger breasts, ones that he said [would] 'go better with your hip size'," Stone told The Times.

"He had changed my body without my knowledge or consent."

When the actress questioned her surgeon about her new breasts, he allegedly told her he "thought that [she] would look better with bigger, 'better' boobs".

Elsewhere in her book, Stone writes about being "near death" while lying in a hospital bed after suffering a stoke and cerebral haemorrhage in the same year. 

"The room was so silent," she said. 

"When the room is so silent and no one's running around trying to fix you, that's when you realise how near death is and how serious everything is."

Stone also says she and her sister were sexually abused as children by their grandfather, and claims she was "tricked into removing her underwear" for the now infamous leg-crossing scene in Basic Instinct
