Hollywood icon Sharon Stone joined Brett Goldstein on the "Films to be Buried With" podcast, where she gave updates on her life while sharing some surprising facts.


Sharon Stone had a revealing chat with Brett Goldstein on the 99th episode of "Flims to be Buried with." She kept up with fans as she talked about life in quarantine, what she's been up to and her life-changing experience.

Sharon Stone started by talking about her activities during the lockdown as she mostly worked from home. The star actress admitted to being grateful for having enough time to spend with her teenage son. Stone made it known that she mostly worked remotely, and this extends to her charity works.

The "King Solomon's Mines" actress then dropped a bombshell as she informed the host that she had been struck by lightning. Stone explained that it was a "really intense" moment. The 62-year-old explained that she was at home and was drawing water from the well when the lightning struck and threw her across the kitchen.




Just when the multiple-award-winning actress got to the peak of her career and was shining in the spotlights, an altering experience occurred. In 2001, Sharon Stone suffered a stroke and a nine-day brain hemorrhage. The fatal incident greatly affected her career as it took seven years to recover.

In her warming words, Stone wished the actor well and also shared encouraging words.


She said about her affected career: "I lost everything I had. I lost my place in the business. I was like the hottest movie star, you know?" The "Casino" star explained that at the time of her illness, she had a "1%" chance of survival, but it all turned out well. Being back in business wasn't easy as she found herself "at the back of the line."



Having battled stroke for a long time and climbing through the ladder of success once again, Stone knows what it's like for anyone going through the same illness.

Last year, she expressed a heartfelt message towards her fellow star Luke Perry who suffered a stroke at the age of 52. The "Riverdale" star experienced paralysis at his home in Sherman Oaks, California.

In her warming words, Stone wished the actor well and also shared encouraging words. She said: "...you can come all the way back even from the edge, from the worst things, I'm here to tell you."

Sharon once shared details of her grueling recuperation process. The "Total Recall" actress outlined the steps, which include being able to talk and walk again.
