Sharon Stone nearly died in 2001 when she suffered an aneurysm in the San Francisco mansion she shared with her husband Phil Bronstein at the time.
And when on The Late Late Show with James Corden Wednesday night, the 63-year-old Basic Instinct star said she nearly died.
‘There was a tunnel of light and I flew up through this tunnel of light and at the top was some kind of hole and some of the people that I had been very close to as if I had been their caretakers until they died were kind of like I looked down through that open hole at the top and I felt like they were telling me this is all great, ‘said the actress promoting her memoir The Beauty Of Living Twice.
Near Death: Sharon Stone nearly died in 2001 when she suffered an aneurysm in the San Francisco mansion she was sharing with her husband at the time Phil Bronstein
Near Heaven? And then on Wednesday night’s James Corden show, the Basic Instinct star said she nearly died. “I was just gone and I felt myself going up a little bit like that,” she began her story
Stone took the time to pass on her story.
The Hollywood icon collapsed at home and then went to the hospital thinking something was very wrong.
“ In my case, um, I had bleeding in my brain for several days before going to a hospital and I passed out when I got there and they put me in a cat scanning machine to find out what happened to me, ” said the perennial cover girl.
‘And when I came to, I was laying on a table in a very quiet emergency room, there was no one there, just the doctor, no one is doing anything urgent like you think, oh,’ and she uses her hand over her neck to indicate that she was almost dead.
The light: she added, ‘And there was a tunnel of light and I shot up through this tunnel of light and at the top was kind of this hole’
Friends there: ‘And some of the people I was really close to whether I was their caretakers until they died looked a little down through that open hole at the top,’ said the mother of three
‘And the doctor just looked at me with such compassion and I said, I’m dying and realized it was a bad situation, it’s way too quiet and no one is helping … he stroked my hair and I was like oh yup, yuppers. … and he said you bleed into your brain, ”said the red carpet favorite.
Her new book is The Beauty Of Living Twice
“I called my mom and he said they would take me to a neurological hospital that they didn’t have what I needed,” added the Pennsylvania resident.
Then she shared her near-death experience.
‘They put me on this stretcher … and all of a sudden it was and I was just gone and I felt myself going up a little bit like that and there was a tunnel of light and I shot up through this tunnel of light and at the top it was a kind of this hole and different people that i was really close with or i was their caretakers till they died looked a little bit down through that open hole at the top and felt like they were telling me this is all great this will be fine It’s going to be great, ‘said The Specialist actress.

And I felt like, ‘Oh, I’m going to be with you’ and I was moving really fast, it was like the tunnel was miles long.
And then all of a sudden I felt – and I don’t know if they were defibrillating me – but it felt like I was really being kicked in the chest, really hard and I was panting and sitting up and I was back in the emergency room on the gurney and someone said, “What’s going on?” and the doctor said don’t touch her and asked her what she needed.
She said she really had to ‘pee’.
The Change: Stone then said, ‘I felt like they were telling me this is all great’
And the doctor pointed to the bathroom ‘and he didn’t want anyone to touch me and the floor seemed very far away, it seemed like I was floating and then they took me to the other hospital.
“It was very beautiful, it was very strange,” she added.
She went to another hospital and she got an angiogram and they missed her brain haemorrhage. She bled for another five or six days and she said they thought she was ‘pretending’ and wanted to send her home, but she told her best friend Mini Craven that she was dying.
Mimi threw an ‘attack’ and they gave her another angiogram and then they realized an artery had ruptured.
She woke up: ‘And all of a sudden I felt – and I don’t know if they were defibrillating me – but I felt like I was really being kicked in the chest, really hard and I was panting and sitting up and I was back on the first aid on the stretcher, ”she added
She had a seven-hour operation and survived, but the recovery process took a long time.
It was 10 days after 9/11 and she said that “the whole world was turned upside down.”
The experience was detailed in her book The Beauty of Living Twice.
Corden said he loved the book’s support. She said she wasn’t prepared for people to read the book and she started to panic that people would see it, and she never thought it would be so successful.
She also said she was a charity auctioneer. ‘At first I was not good, I was shy and I was very nervous and when I got into it I realized I had to make up a character like us, I tried to do it like myself and I cried, and then I I invented this character, and she’s kind of nasty and loves to get people out of the room and say really crazy things to them. ‘
She remembered picking Calvin Klein and bet he was wearing Calvin Klein underwear and at the end of the bidding he had to take off his pants to prove it.

James then said he felt Sharon was a “force forever.”

Sharon also said she’s had a lot of hit songs in other countries, and this year she wrote a song Never Before for Hayley Sales that ‘hit’ and made people aware of her ‘side hustle’ of making music.
More to say: Stone also talked about her success in the music business with Hayley Sales
And the song rose to number four on today’s adult charts.
She also said that Robin Thicke came to her house the other day – and stopped to say she was bragging – to pick up some songs for his artist.
And now the casino actress has a music manager. “My songs go to people and it’s really exciting,” she added, which James said was “incredible.”
This comes after Stone said she thinks women are most powerful after 40.
The actress has rejected the idea that women are becoming less powerful with age and thinks now is the perfect time to release her upcoming memoir, ‘The Beauty of Living Twice’.
In People’s look at Sharon’s ‘Super Soul’ interview with Oprah Winfrey, she says, “I think as we get older, there is a social pressure that people try to tell us we are worth less.”
However, the Hollywood star revealed that she sees the situation completely differently.
She explained, “I think this is a time in our lives when our value has increased the most. I believe that is because it is the first time in your life that you have become worth so much more. You will be the most powerful than you have ever been. ‘
