On Tuesday night, Sharon Stone opened up about her terrifying out-of-body experience on The Late, Late Show with James Corden while discussing her artistic journey and first public exhibition of paintings. 

"I felt pretty terrified," she admitted. Sharon began painting in her bedroom, but after never leaving the room, her children encouraged her to find a studio space. 

Her first show proved both exhilarating and nerve-wracking, as she had an "out of body" experience when seeing the packed crowd.

Sharon’s transition into the art world comes after a turbulent period in her life. In her early 40s, she suffered a life-threatening stroke and brain bleed that she kept hidden for years, hoping to regain her acting career.

Now at 65, the Basic Instinct actress reflects on ageism in Hollywood and the misguided notion of being "too old" for roles. 

In an interview with Giselle Fernandez for Spectrum News 1 SoCal, she shared her fond memories of being 40, asserting that it was a prime age for personal growth and self-discovery.

Her memoir, The Beauty of Living Twice, chronicles the challenges she faced during her recovery, including personal struggles in her marriage and family.

Sharon has since found work in smaller TV roles and rediscovered her childhood love for painting. This passion led to her recent solo exhibition at Allouche Gallery in LA, showcasing her impressive artistic skills.

When Giselle asked if the artist anticipates a late-career resurgence like Jennifer Coolidge or Angela Bassett, her response was resolute: "I don't feel it really happening that much for me, and I don't really care." 

Regardless of Hollywood's opportunities, Sharon remains fiercely driven to create, whether it be for the film industry or other creative pursuits.

Despite the challenges she has faced, her resilient spirit is evident in her art and her approach to life. She is determined to explore her creative passions at 65 and beyond, proving that age is merely a number.

She added:  "The greatest gift we have is to give the greatest things we have... until the very last breath."
