Sharon Stone tells about the stroke that almost killed her

3 min read

Sharon Stone was primarily known in the nineties, when she appeared in films such as Total Recall, Casino and Basic Instinct. In recent years she has been taking things a bit slower, but according to the 61-year-old Stone, she was also completely ignored after having had a life-threatening stroke.

The actress was recently present as a speaker at the Alzheimer’s event in Hollywood, where she stood up for the Women’s Brain Health Initiative. So she said:

This is why I do it. My grandmother has had a stroke. My mother has had a stroke. And I’ve had a stroke. I have had a brain haemorrhage that lasted nine days .

“People were not sympathetic at all and showed no compassion. I think that almost no one knows how dangerous such a stroke is and how long it takes to get over it again. It took me at least seven years for it. It was a difficult period for me, with the necessary professional and personal problems. For example, I had to fight for my son’s guardianship.

“I am so grateful that Bernard Arnault saved me. He offered me a contract with Dior. But I still had to sell my house and I lost everything I had, including my place in the film world. At first I was the most famous movie star. First Princess Diana and I were world famous. She died and I had a stroke. And we have both now been forgotten”.

Stone didn’t know at first how serious it was, but now urges other people to pay more attention:

“If you really have a bad headache, you should go to the hospital. I didn’t do that. I only went the third or fourth day of my stroke. Most people die during that time. I had a one percent chance of survival. They didn’t know if I was going to get through that month at all”.
