17 Stars Who Claim to Have Died And Come Back to Life

By  | 


A lot of us have different beliefs when it comes to life after death, but you've got to admit – it's a scary thing to think about. Hollywood films have given us quite a few depictions of what it could be like, from haunting our loved ones and handling unfinished business to returning as bloody zombies and scaring the living daylights out of people (that one sounds like a stretch). But when we hear the real-life stories of people who have actually experienced the afterlife? Well, it goes to show that some of those over-the-top fantasy movies might not be so over-the-top after all.

Several celebrities have actually knocked on death's door, gotten a glimpse of the other side, and then returned to tell the world about it — orrrr at least they say they have! Some explained that they saw angels and literally heard the voice of God, while others claimed that they experienced the pit of hell (yikes). We imagine that these stars got their fair share of weird looks when they told these stories, but we admire their bravery and we give them a lot of credit for sharing what they've seen.

Check out some of the craziest near-death experiences that celebrities have had.

1. Sharon Stone


In 2001, she suffered a severe brain hemorrhage that led to internal bleeding, and it almost cost her her life. In that moment, Sharon got a glimpse of the afterlife. And the craziest part? She even saw some of her deceased loved ones.

“This kind of giant vortex of white light was upon me and I kind of – poof! Sort of took off into this glorious, bright, bright, bright white light and I started to see and be met by some of my friends,” she said. We kind of picture that something like the resurrection stone scene in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and it's beautiful.
