Celebrities have lived some very interesting lives and, while it might seem like their every move has been in the spotlight, there are many times they open about things fans never knew about and it captures our attention. One of these compelling topics have been near-death experiences, which reminded them of their own mortality and revealed to fans how close they came to possibly losing one of their favorite stars. Many stars have shared their stories about being in dangerous situations and how surviving has changed them. Here are 10 celebrities and their near-death experiences:
10. Sharon Stone
Actress Sharon Stone opened up about her own near-death experience in 2004, three years after she suffered a stroke which she insists took her to the afterlife. In 2001, out of nowhere, Stone had a massive brain hemorrhage which caused her brain to bleed for nine days and put her in the ICU. “When it hit me I felt like I’d been shot in the head. That’s the only way I can really describe it. It hit me so hard it knocked me over on the sofa […] This kind of giant vortex of white light was upon me and I kind of – poof! Sort of took off into this glorious, bright, bright, bright white light and I started to see and be met by some of my friends. But it was very fast – whoosh! Suddenly, I was back. I was in my body and I was in the room.” After the stroke, it took two years for Stone to learn to walk and talk again properly.
9. Amy Schumer
Just recently, actress and comedian Amy Schumer opened up about her own near-death experience when she was a teenager. For an issue of Vanity Fair in 2016, Schumer revealed that she still has a big scar on her leg from a surfing accident that required 41 stitches and went through three layers of skin. “I skegged myself. My whole gin went into my leg and I had to yank it out. I was by myself.” She then explained that her situation was even more dangerous because it was winter and there were very few people on the beach to help her, but after dragging herself to shore, a man was able to put pressure on the bleeding. “I was like, ‘I need you to hold my leg.’ I was delegating. And he held my leg closed with his bare hands – just fat and blood coming out.” She went on, “I wish I knew who that guy was, because he saved my life, for sure. He had blue toenail polish and nail polish; he had long stringy hair. And I remember him being beautiful. Anyway, he held my leg closed.”
