Sharon Stone: I saw dead people09/07/2012 - 11:35:02
Sharon Stone saw "the white light" and people she knew had died, when she nearly died of a brain aneurysm.
The 'Basic Instinct' star suffered a near-fatal aneurysm in 2001 and while she managed to survive, she admits she came very close to death and even had a vision of people she knew that had already passed away.
She said: "Compared to that illness, nothing has been so difficult. It was as if I had been shot in the head.
"They thought I had a ruptured vessel that had bled itself out. So another nine days went by when I was not improving. During the next operation they found an artery that was pumping blood into my brain. They put in platinum to shut it off. I was close to death at one point and saw the white light that people claim they see.
"I did see people who I knew had died, as close and real as any living thing."
The 54-year-old actress, who is currently dating 27-year-old model Martin Mica, admits she could have "crossed over" but felt it was not her "time" to die.
She added to the Daily Express newspaper: "I felt that I only had to step over a very narrow line and I would have joined them. What kept me back? It was just not my time."
