Sharon Stone reveals she was left with ‘no money’ after losing £14 million following stroke

The Hollywood actress said she was left with 'zero money'

It's a given that a Hollywood actor will most likely be raking it in, and you'd expect their income to be in the millions right?

Well, one famous actress has revealed she suffered one of the biggest financial losses we've ever heard of, as she lost $18 million after suffering a stroke.

Basic Instinct actress Sharon Stone has opened up about being hit with the devastating health blow, and then the subsequent financial setback.

In 2001, Sharon suffered a stroke that led to a nine-day brain bleed, which forced her to step away from Hollywood for seven years while she recovered.

Not only did she have to recover her health but she was also left financially struggling too.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she explained more about her stroke which left her with memory less and struggling with brain function as she shared: "I had a death experience and then they brought me back.

"I bled into my brain for nine days, so my brain was shoved to the front of my face. It wasn’t positioned in my head where it was before."

If suffering such a scary health setback wasn't enough, it was then made harder as the star continued: "I had $18 million saved because of all my success, but when I got back into my bank account, it was all gone.

"My refrigerator, my phone — everything was in other people’s names. I had zero money."

Whilst the star revealed she feels she was 'taken advantage' of, she's also opened up as she revealed that she doesn't want to be 'bitter' about the money.

In the interview she explained: "I decided not to hang onto being sick or to any bitterness or anger. If you bite into the seed of bitterness, it never leaves you. But if you hold faith, even if that faith is the size of a mustard seed, you will survive."

This isn't the first time that Sharon has discussed her stroke. She also previously spoke to Vogue last year as she confessed to 'trying to hide' the signs of her disability.

She told the magazine: "[I] was afraid to go out and didn’t want people to know. I just thought no one would accept me."

Yet, now she's told PEOPLE how she's grown more 'comfortable' with it as she added: "[I've] become more comfortable with publicly saying what's really happened to me. For a long time I wanted to pretend that I was just fine."
