Sharon Stone Settles Suit Against Surgeon

A settlement was reached in a lawsuit filed by Sharon Stone claiming a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon implied he had performed a face-lift on the actress, an attorney said Tuesday.

"It became plain to all parties that the lawsuit was the result of a misunderstanding," said Kevin Leichter, an attorney representing Dr. Renato Calabria. "Dr. Calabria did not perform plastic surgery on Ms. Stone."

Stone, 47, accepted an offer by Calabria to perform several charity surgeries for underprivileged kids involved in Stone's philanthropic efforts, Leichter said.

The suit was dismissed Monday, he said.

A message left for Stone's attorney, Stephen Garcia, was not immediately returned.

Stone's complaint stemmed from magazine articles and was filed last December in Los Angeles County Superior Court. The lawsuit stated that Stone has never undergone a face-lift.

The "Basic Instinct" star maintained that such allegations damaged her reputation and hurt her ability to find work.

Stone had sought compensatory and punitive damages for defamation and misappropriation of her likeness, Leichter said.
