Sharon Stone opens up about how she lost her film roles due to memory problems after a stroke
The world-famous Hollywood actress Sharon Stone has frankly revealed that she suffered a massive stroke that led to serious memory problems. As a result, the Basic Instinct star lost her film roles because she simply could not memorise the script.
The actress suffered a nine-day brain haemorrhage. Her memories of that period of her life were quoted in the Daily Mail.
"In 2001, I had a nine-day brain haemorrhage and a large, very debilitating stroke... It took me years to recover, it took me a long time," Stone said.
The stroke caused the celebrity to lose her memory. She constantly forgot her lines and could not learn a new text. Because of this, Hollywood directors, as Stone herself put it, "threw her to the back of the queue" of actors. The star was not offered roles and was denied already agreed projects. It was painful and unpleasant for the actress - she felt rejected by her "cinematic family".
"Once you're at the back of the queue, getting back to the front of the line doesn't depend on whether you've made a lot of blockbusters and whether you've made billions of dollars for your industry. You are not that important anymore. I don't know if it's right to say that I was abandoned. But I felt like I had lost my cinematic family," Stone honestly admitted.
Not so long ago, Sharon Stone announced that doctors had discovered a large fibrous tumour. Initially, doctors misdiagnosed the star and prescribed the wrong treatment, which made the artist experience even more pain.
As OBOZREVATEL previously wrote, Sharon Stone first revealed that she had lost nine children to miscarriages. The actress decided to make this revelation after the wife of Ukrainian choreographer Max Chmerkovskiy told about her tragedy.
