Sharon Stone Suffers Major A Loss

Sharon Stone recently revealed that she has “lost half my money to this banking thing” at a benefit gala in Beverly Hills.

The statement comes after two of the three largest bank failures in the country’s history — following Washington Mutual in 2008 — took place last weekend within the span of 48 hours.

“And right now, that’s courage too,” she said. “Because I know what’s happening. I just lost half my money to this banking thing, and that doesn’t mean that I’m not here. My brother just died, and that doesn’t mean that I’m not here. This is not an easy time for any of us.”

“This is a hard time in the world, but I’m telling you what, I’m not having some politician tell me what I can and cannot do, tell me I can and cannot live and what the value of my life is and is not. So stand up. Stand up and say what you’re worth, I dare you. That’s what courage is,” Stone continued.

The U.S. government seized Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank following a bank run that collapsed the financial institutions. According to the Associated Press, Federal regulators have since guaranteed all deposits and created a program to shield other banks from similar incidents.

President Joe Biden has also offered the public a sense of calm with the assurance: “Your deposits will be there when you need them.”

The Academy Award nominee, 65, was honored with the Courage Award at the event for supporting breast cancer research. She said she had benign tumors removed from her breast in 2001 and has had another surgery to remove tissue from her breast since then.

“So don’t ever feel compelled not to get a mammogram, not to get a blood test, not to get surgery, because it doesn’t matter. I’m standing here telling you I had one and a half and more tissue of my breast removed, and none of you even knew it,” Stone said.
