Sharon Stone is speaking out about her decision to reveal her past sex abuse. She told The New York Times that in her forthcoming memoir The Beauty of Living Twice she recalled horrific memories where she and her sister Kelly were sexually abused by their grandfather as kids.
Stone says they “made this decision together.” She adds: “We spoke to my mother and at first she was very stoic and wrote me a letter about how disconcerting all this information was. The whole pious, horrified, I-don't-really-want-to-talk-about-it-directly kind of thing. Then my sister got loaded when my mom was staying with her and really went for it with my mom. And my mom had a major breakthrough.”
She adds: “When I finished the book, I read it to my mother over a three-day period. And I had the flu at the time. I was in bed and she got in bed with me as I finished the book, and then I recorded an hour and a half of her talking. And then I rewrote a lot of the book. That's when I dedicated the book to her.”
