HFPA journalist Silvia Bizio sat down with Sharon Stone just before the star turns 60 on March 10th. The Golden Globe winner said she was excited she got to see the next decade.
It could have been a different story. In 2001 the right vertebral artery in her neck ruptured, causing a stroke and a massive brain hemorrhage. Recovery has been a long and humbling journey for her.  But in those dark times, she met people who changed her life, kept fighting for AIDS victims, adopted two kids and her oldest son returned to live with her.
Going back to work has been challenging but she says she is doing better now.  This year she has been seen on Steven Soderbergh's series Mosaic and is currently filming the comedy The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife with Bette Midler.
