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.
