Veteran actress Sharon Stone rose to superstardom after her performance in 1992’s thriller, Basic Instinct, and became famous as a sex symbol. Recently, Sharon spoke about a difficult moment in her life.
Stone spoke out for the first time about suffering nine miscarriages, as she shared her anguish that there is ‘no forum to discuss the profound loss’. The 64-year-old discussed her loss underneath an Instagram post by People, where Dancing With The Stars performer Peta Murgatroyd opened up about losing a pregnancy with her husband Maks Chmerkovskiy.
Since her miscarriage heartbreak, Sharon has adopted three sons, Roan, 22, Laird, 16, and Quinn, 15. Opening up about her own experience with pregnancy loss, Sharon wrote, “We, as females, don’t have a forum to discuss the profundity of this loss. I lost nine children by miscarriage,”
Sharon continued, “It is no small thing, physically nor emotionally.” She added, “Yet we are made to feel it is something to bear alone and secretly with some kind of sense of failure. Instead of receiving the much-needed compassion and empathy and healing which we so need.” She has previously explained how she went through ’36 hours of labor alone’ after losing a baby at five and a half months pregnant.
The revelation came after Murgatroyd, 35, spoke about her recent loss, and how she found out she lost her pregnancy while husband Maks, who is 42, was away in Ukraine. This isn’t the first time the movie icon has opened up about the painful subject. Just last year, she talked about the challenges she faced during her acting career.
