‘Basic Instinct’ star Sharon Stone, who was rushed to hospital back in 2001 with such a severe pain in her head, said she she felt like she’d been shot.
The 56-year-old actress has spoken out about her brain aneurysm and her fear as she arrived at hospital, reported Huffington Post.
“I called my mom and I said I’m calling you from the emergency room. I said, ‘I’m having a brain haemorrhage’. And she said, ‘I’m on my way, I love you.’ Click,” Stone said.
“I was being wheeled down the hallway at one point, on a gurney, and I woke up and was like, ‘What’s going on?’ A young, young intern said: ‘I’m taking you to surgery.’ I said, ‘What surgery?’ and he said, ‘Brain surgery!’.”
Sharon had a brain aneurysm, which was so severe they had to operate on the problem immediately.
“When I woke up I had to learn to walk, hear, write, talk, remember and everything all over again. I thought I was dying for a long time, even after I came home.”
Just three years later Stone found herself in a dark place, with her marriage to husband Phil Bronstein breaking down.
“My career was basically over, my marriage was over – I got divorced – my child was taken away. My identity too, I thought. I got down, down to it. And when I got down to it, it was like being a phoenix – I was burned to the ground,” she added.
