Hollywood star Sharon Stone says she was anxious about returning to acting after overcoming health problems. The 59-year-old actor has been out of the spotlight for several years after suffering a stroke and brain haemorrhage in September 2001, but is currently seen in Steven Soderbergh's new TV drama "Mosaic" as murder victim Olivia Lake.
"I absolutely felt insecure. But I certainly didn't want anyone to think I did. I was asking myself, 'What's going to happen if I can't do it? What's going to happen if I fall apart?'" Sharon told Grazia magazine.

The actor said she was particularly nervous because the stroke left her with memory problems. ''I lost my short- and long-term memory when I had the stroke and it took me a long time to get it back, because I had to learn to learn. I was such a hot shot, back in the day. I had a photographic memory so I didn't even have to learn lines. Coming back to it, I didn't know what the hell I was doing," she said.
