The ‘Basic Instinct’ star had an operation to remove benign tumours from her body in 2001, but when she woke up, she revealed she had a “full cup-size bigger breasts” than before because the surgeon thought it suited her better.

“When I was un-bandaged, I discovered that I had a full cup-size bigger breasts, ones that he said, ‘go better with your hip size’. He had changed my body without my knowledge or consent. He thought that I would look better with bigger, better boobs,” she says, speaking to The Times newspaper.

Meanwhile, Sharon - who suffered a stroke in 2001 –previously revealed her late grandmother visited her when she was in hospital as she had an out-of-body experience.

“One night, I awoke to my grandmother Lela standing at the foot of my bed. I know that sounds reasonable, except my grandmother had been dead for 30 years. She looked beautiful. She smelled beautiful: she always wore Guerlain perfume, Shalimar. She was at her best, wearing her favourite suit and hat. [She said] 'We don’t really know what’s wrong with you - we are working on it. But whatever you do, don’t move your neck’,” explains Sharon.

The star also admitted she lost her radiance during her seven-year recovery from her stroke, “My radiance went away. It isn’t so much your beauty as your radiance. It’s a radiance and a magnetism, and a presence. Yes, it comes from health and well-being and youth. It comes from confidence too. And when you are in this business that we’re in, they start telling you that you don’t have it anymore, and you start believing it.”
