Sharon Stone opens up about life after brush with death

London, Dec 4 (ANI): Sharon Stone, who has been keeping a low profile for a while, recovering from a near-fatal brain haemorrhage and bringing up the three boys she adopted, has opened up about her brush with death.

The 'Basic Instinct' star is back in a big way, fully recovered, with three growing sons, a toyboy lover, several films awaiting release and a co-starring role with Woody Allen in the offing.

"You don't go through all I've been through and come back and go on with your career unless you're going to take some very big challenges," the Mirror quoted her as saying.

"I feel OK and I can do it. I also don't care if I fail because what's failure? You know what? I failed at the biggest things there are in life.

"I failed in my health, I failed in my marriage, I failed in everything and I've picked myself up and gone on. I was really lucky not to die, so it feels fantastic to be older and alive and to be playing older and alive people," she said. (ANI)
