Hollywood beauty Halle Berry once fell into a coma for seven days.

The DIE ANOTHER DAY star, 39, fell seriously ill on the set of TV show LIVING DOLLS in 1989, and it was only after she regained consciousness, she was diagnosed with diabetes.

Berry recalls, "I felt tired but couldn't take a breather. I felt I needed energy but I didn't even have a minute to pop out and get a chocolate bar.

"I felt more and more tired and one day I passed out and I didn't wake up for seven days which is obviously very serious.

"They told me I might lose my eyesight, or I could lose my legs. I was scared to death, I thought I was going to die."

The Oscar-winner actress is now forced to test her blood sugar levels twice a day and injects herself with insulin.

She explains, "Because no one expects you to be doing it, no one really notices."
