- The Basic Instinct star made the announcement at a fundraiser in Hollywood last week
Sharon Stone revealed that she lost half of her money in the recent banking crisis.
The Basic Instinct star was snapped at a fundraiser in Hollywood last week as he urged viewers to donate money to a cancer charity.
He told them, “I lost half my money on this bank thing, and that doesn’t mean I’m not here.”
It is not clear which bank Ms Stone, 65, who is worth £50million, lost her money with, but the gala she attended for the Women’s Cancer Foundation took place last Thursday, just days after the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank. and Signature Bank.
They were the second and third largest bank failures in US history, after the implosion of Washington Mutual Bank during the 2008 financial crisis.
The US Federal Reserve has stepped in to guarantee all deposits held at the two banks, making it unlikely that Ms Stone, who lives in an £18m house in Beverly Hills, will lose any money.
Asking guests to donate at last week’s gala, she also said: ‘I know you’ve got to figure out how to text money.
‘I’m a technical idiot, but I can write a check.’
She also opened up about her own health battles, including a fatal stroke in 2001 and surgery to remove tumors from her breasts in the 1990s.
A spokeswoman for Ms. Stone declined to comment.
