Sharon Stone Settles Lawsuit with Cosmetic Surgeon

Nov 16, 2005 | 6:07am EST

Hollywood actress Sharon Stone yesterday settled the lawsuit she brought against a cosmetic surgeon last year.

The Basic Instinct beauty alleged in legal papers that Dr. Renato Calabria had made false claims she had undergone face-lift surgery.

The details of the settlement reached at Los Angeles County Superior Court have not been disclosed, with Calabria's lawyer Arthur Barens saying, "I can only tell you the case was settled."

The case was brought by Stone after magazines Us Weekly and In Touch ran stories claiming Stone had gone under the surgeon's knife—and Calabria was quoted, although he did not mention Stone by name.

Barens continues, "All (Calabria) has ever done is discuss vertical face surgery, a technique he innovated, and articles have speculated that Stone had the procedure."

Stone's legal papers state she "has never undergone a face-lift in order to improve her physical appearance. ... Stone prides herself not only on her acting ability and other talents, but also on her natural physical appearance."
