Sharon Stone says she was left with “zero money” after losing $18 million in savings after a 2001 stroke.

Sharon Stone looks back on her 2001 stroke with mixed feelings.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter published on Tuesday, the “Basic Instinct” actress revealed that she lost $18 million in savings after suffering the stroke, which caused a nine-day brain bleed, due to “people taking advantage” of her during her seven. -year recovery when she stepped away from Hollywood.

“I had $18 million saved from all my success, but when I went back into my bank account, it was all gone. My refrigerator, my phone — everything was in other people’s names,” Stone said.

“I had zero money.”

The actress, 66, went on to reveal that the trauma of her injury has “100 per cent” changed the way her brain works and the way she thinks.

“A Buddhist monk told me I was reincarnated into my same body,” Stone said.

“I had a near-death experience and then they brought me back. I bled into my brain for nine days, so my brain was shoved in front of my face. It wasn’t positioned in my head where it used to be,” the actress continued.

“And while that was happening, everything changed,” Stone recalled. “My sense of smell, my sight, my touch. I couldn’t read for a few years.”

“Things were tense and I saw color patterns. A lot of people thought I was going to die.”

Now that she’s recovered, the “Casino” star said she was able to move on after losing her money because she decided to “stay present and let go.”

“I decided not to hold myself ill or to any bitterness or anger. If you bite into the seed of bitterness, it never leaves you. But if you keep faith, even if that faith is the size of a mustard seed, you will survive,” Stone said.

“So, I’m living for joy now. I live for a purpose.”
