62-year-old Sharon Stone was on the podcast Films To Be Buried With to talk about her long, illustrious career ad movies. But fuck all that! Who wants to know about her “art” when she also talked about that time she got struck by lightning. Hmmm…why do I have a feeling that Sharon was hit by lightning after the komodo dragon community finally got revenge on her by busting out a lighting bolt-summoning dance on her?
Us Weekly says that Sharon claimed to host Brett Goldstein that she had a “really intense” moment when she was once electrocuted during a storm. I just pictured Sharon Stone out in her backyard cursing at the Gods for not giving her an Oscar nomination for Diabolique until a bolt of light reached down and slapped her down, but it was slightly less dramatic than that. Slightly. She said:
“I was filling the iron with water. I had one hand on the faucet, one hand on the iron and the well got hit with lightning and the lighting came up through the water… I got picked up and thrown across the kitchen, and I hit the refrigerator. I was like, “Whoa!”“
Sharon claimed her mother slapped her awake and she had to monitor the electricity pumping through her body for the next two weeks:
“My mother was standing there, and my mother just belted me across the face and brought me to. I had to go get EKGs every single day for 10 days.”
And Sharon has more stories about near-death experiences, saying, “I’ve had a lot of things… It’s crazy.” She also had a stroke in 2001 and then another one in 2016, coupled with a nine-day brain hemorrhage. She said she was “tremendously lucky to be alive.”
“To be able to put a sentence together, to be able to walk and talk, to be able to continue to work in my chosen field, which requires quite a bit of memorization. To be able to have the full facility of my body and my face.”
And back when she was 14 she also had an accident on a horse:
“The scar on my neck is from being taken under a clothesline while riding a horse. It was back in Pennsylvania when I was 14. My mom saved my life.”
No wonder she’s talking about creating safe room bunkers in your bathroom. She’s been through it! Luckily, she now uses Beauline–so her skin is tough as marble.
