Sharon Stone on 2001 brain hemorrhage

When she was struck by a brain hemorrhage in 2001, actress Sharon Stone was considered to have a 5-percent chance of surviving. And even though she did, the 59-year-old “Basic Instinct” actress told “CBS Sunday Morning” she had to relearn “everything” after her life was “wiped out” by the trauma. She disappeared from the public stage, Page Six reports, in part because Hollywood considered her a “broken person.” Stone gets her sweet revenge with Steven Soderbergh’s six-part HBO series “Mosaic,” in which she stars. It will debut Monday.
