Hollywood star Sharon Stone joined Susanna Reid and Adil Ray on Good Morning Britain today, where the actress opened up about her latest autobiography, The Beauty of Living Twice. The movie star suffered a near-fatal brain haemorrhage and stroke in 2001, but during her recovery process she was asked to present at the Academy Awards alongside John Travolta.

The 63-year-old revealed that John had no idea that she had been hospitalised just nine days prior to the event, as she dished on the pair’s relationship.

The Casino actress gushed over her Hollywood pal describing him as “remarkable”.

When quizzed about their friendship, Sharon explained: “I hadn’t told John what had happened to me. But he’s the most remarkably wonderful human being.

“He’s the most thoughtful, kind, highly conscious person.

“He and I, have a very dear friendship and that special communication where you just know if you need to give each other a call.”

Two weeks before her famous on-stage dance with John at the Oscars, Sharon had been struggling to walk due to the effects of seven-hour brain surgery.

Speaking about the Academy Awards, Sharon dished: “We came to rehearsal the day before and I asked him what he wanted to do and how he wanted it to go down.

“I asked, ‘Did he want to do something? Do you want to do something special?'”

The actress explained that John had been apprehensive about doing a performance at the awards ceremony.

Sharon said: “Then that night he came backstage and looked at my dress, and he said, ‘Oh, that’s a good dancing dress. That dress really twirls.’

“But he didn’t tell me we were going to do anything. So I was as surprised as everyone else when we came out dancing.”

She continued: “It was exciting for me because I was still deeply in my recovery.

“I was just at the stage where I could kind of put just one foot in front of the other and I was still working through a lot of stuff.”

Sharon added: “My hearing wasn’t great and sometimes I could see out of my right eye and sometimes I couldn’t.

“I didn’t know what was going to happen but it all worked out and I didn’t fall off the stage.”

Sharon and John captivated audiences at the 74th annual Academy Awards in Hollywood back in 2002, where the pair danced together on stage.

Meanwhile, Sharon also touched on a near-death experience and how she chose to return to life after “seeing people who had gone before”.

“In my case, when this happened to me, I had all of these things that most people talk about, where you see this kind of… light, that you leave your body, you have this feeling of being pulled outward and upward and a sense of seeing people that had gone before me,” she explained.

“I had a sense of communicating with them and so of an ethereal sense, not really with dialogue per se but I did have a sense of understanding that we were communicating.

“And then suddenly I had this gigantic pain, like I’d been kicked in the chest.”

Sharon concluded: “But then I was back in the room and it was very clear that I had chosen to be back in the room, and chosen not to continue on that journey that outward, upward, away journey.”
