Sharon Stone and a Beverly Hills doctor she accused of implying that he had performed cosmetic surgery on her face have reached a settlement and her lawsuit has been dismissed, said the doctor's lawyer.

Stone's complaint, filed last December in Los Angeles County Superior Court, stemmed from magazine articles quoting Dr. Renato Calabria about her. The lawsuit stated that Stone, 47, has never undergone a facelift, and the actress had sought compensatory and punitive damages for defamation and misappropriation of her likeness.

"It became plain to all parties that the lawsuit was the result of a misunderstanding," Kevin Leichter, a lawyer representing Calabria, tells the Associated Press. "Dr. Calabria did not perform plastic surgery on Ms. Stone."

The Basic Instinct star has accepted Calabria's offer to donate several surgeries for underprivileged children involved in her philanthropic efforts, Leichter added.
