The “Basic Instinct” star has gone through a lot during the COVID-19 pandemic, but she is finally relieved about her family situation and is ready to promote her latest acting project.
62-year-old actress Sharon Stone was recently interviewed for ExtraTV to promote her upcoming series “Ratched” alongside her co-stars in the film, Sarah Paulson and Cynthia Nixon, and she took a moment to comment on her family life.
The three actresses were asked about what do they miss the most from life before the COVID-19 pandemic, and Stone was the first to answer, sharing that she misses hugging her friends the most.

Nixon answered second, and she shared how sad it was for her to see her children graduating from high school in an online ceremony and how the most ordinary things like riding the subway are now precious moments that she wants back.
But as relatable as Nixon feels to us, of all three actresses, it has been Stone who has been most personally affected by the pandemic, having her sister Kelly and her husband falling ill with the novel coronavirus disease.
The diagnostic was especially worrying for Sharon, since Kelly also suffers from lupus, which weakens her immune system, but fortunately, the actress is much relieved now that her relatives are doing much better.
But if this wasn’t enough stress for the actress, one of Sharon’s three sons had to undergo surgery around the same time, and while she can laugh about it, she could find no words to describe what it was for her to go through all that.
“I'm so relieved that I think I'm starting to crumble,” the actress managed to say to summarize how she felt.
As soon as Sharon made her sister’s diagnosis with COVID-19 public, the actress felt prompted to become more outspoken about what she thinks about how everybody is battling the pandemic.
Sharon has been especially critical to the people that refuse to wear masks, whom she blamed for her sister and brother-in-law’s contagion, since she affirms that Kelly hasn’t gone out of her home except for going to the pharmacy.
The actress shared her thoughts about “non mask wearers” in an Instagram post-mid-August, and after urging everybody to respect the safety measures to slow the spread of COVID-19, she asked for her fans to pray for Kelly.
But as much as Sharon worries for her family and for the general population amid this unprecedented health crisis, she probably doesn’t feel that scared about her own health, since she says to have cheated death on several occasions.
In an interview with The Sun, earlier in August, the “Basic Instinct” star revealed that she had been struck by lightning, throttled, and suffered a stroke, and she affirmed that her life has been “crazy.”
And after such a life experience, Sharon doesn’t imagine herself dying in an ordinary way, and she pictures her “next death” as “something super dramatic and nuts.”
