Sharon Stone Reveals Brain Hemorrhage Nightmare

Friday, 14 August 2015 12:57 PM

Sharon Stone reveals she suffered a brain hemorrhage that caused her to forget her lines during filming of the 11th season of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in 2010.

"That was humiliating," the 57-year-old actress recalls in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar.

The situation had to do in part with an aneurysm that Stone suffered in 2001 and a subsequent cerebral hemorrhage that lasted nine days.

The hemorrhage caused her to stutter and limp, and left her unable to read.

But she has been able to recover and, this fall, Stone will star in and executive-produce a new series on TNT, Agent X, in which she plays the vice president of the United States.

Stone says the brain hemorrhage had a crushing impact on her life. As she recalls it, she felt unwell for three days before she went to the emergency room. It turned out she'd had a stroke.

"When I came to, the doctor was leaning over me. I said, 'Am I dying?' And he said, 'You're bleeding into your brain,' “she remembers. “I said, 'I should call my mom,' and he said, 'You're right. You could lose the ability to speak soon.' "

Stones says the stroke transformed Stone in ways she's still discovering.

"It took two years for my body just to absorb all the internal bleeding I had," she says. "It almost feels like my entire DNA changed. My brain isn't sitting where it used to, my body type changed, and even my food allergies are different."
