Sharon Stone, our fabulous 65-year-old Emmy-winning dynamo, is giving us a peek into her wild rollercoaster ride with a brain hemorrhage back in 2001. Yep, you read that right – brain hemorrhage. It’s not just any story; it’s like a plot twist from a Hollywood blockbuster, but even Hollywood couldn’t handle it!
In an exclusive chat with Vogue, Sharon recalled the thunderbolt of a headache that sent her world spinning. Picture this: she woke up on a gurney, as confused as a chameleon in a bag of Skittles, and asked the guy pushing her, “Hey, where are we headed?” To which the guy replied, “Brain surgery, my dear!” Surprise, surprise – a doctor had decided to throw an impromptu brain surgery party without bothering to check if Sharon was even on the guest list.
But that’s not all! The medical misadventures continue – the doctors apparently pulled a magic trick and missed the brain hemorrhage in the first angiogram, thinking Sharon was faking it. Well, well, it seems even brain hemorrhages can’t escape from the skeptical side-eye.
Sharon, ever the trooper, shared her wisdom from this peculiar ordeal, “What I learned through that experience is that in a medical setting, women often just aren’t heard, particularly when you don’t have a female doctor.” You go, Sharon! Preach it, sister!
Now, let’s talk about the aftermath. Sharon’s road to recovery was no walk in the park – more like a wobbly stroll down a hillside during an earthquake. She bled into her subarachnoid pool, making her face do the Macarena, her left foot go on a dragging spree, and her speech sound like a broken record. It’s safe to say that Sharon was rocking the ‘Unbelievably Ungraceful’ look, but she was still fabulous, darling!
What’s even more surprising is that Sharon kept this whole saga on the down-low. She was more undercover than a secret agent at a ninja convention. She admitted, “[I] was afraid to go out and didn’t want people to know. I just thought no one would accept me.” But guess what, Sharon? We accept you with open arms, quirks and all!
In the grand script of life, Sharon Stone’s brain hemorrhage chapter is one of those jaw-dropping plot twists that leave us giggling and applauding her resilience. Hats off to you, Sharon!
