Sharon Stone has detailed her struggles after suffering a stroke in 2001.
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey in an upcoming episode of Super Soul, the 63-year-old actress opened up about her recovery, as well as her new memoir The Beauty of Living Twice.

Stone suffered a stroke and a brain hemorrhage in September 2001. In 2019, the star spoke to Variety about life after her stroke, revealing that her Hollywood comeback wasn't a good experience.
"People treated me in a way that was brutally unkind," she said. "From other women in my own business to the female judge who handled my custody case, I don't think anyone grasps how dangerous a stroke is for women and what it takes to recover — it took me about seven years."
"[From] trying to keep custody of my son to just functioning — to be able to work at all," Stone added. "I was so grateful to [LVMH head and now the second-richest person in the world] Bernard Arnault, who rescued me by giving me a Dior contract. But I had to remortgage my house. I lost everything I had. I lost my place in the business. I was like the hottest movie star, you know?" she said, her voice trailing off.
"It was like Miss Princess Diana and I were so famous — and she died and I had a stroke. And we were forgotten."
The Beauty of Living Twice memoir will be available Tuesday, March 30.https://www.instagram.com/p/CJzbP0wpkfk/
