Sharon Stone lost half of her fortune ‘due to banking problems’

The 65-year-old actress made the statement at a breast cancer charity event, days after the recent failures of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank.

Actress Sharon Stone revealed on Thursday that she recently lost half of her personal fortune, without specifying whether this bankruptcy was directly related to the recent banking crisis, marked by the failures of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank.

“I just lost half my money in bank trouble and yet here I am,” she tearfully told the Women’s Cancer Research Fund last Thursday.

She also asked guests in the room to make donations for the fight against cancer. “It’s not an easy time.”

“I know how to write a check”

This statement from Sharon Stone – whose personal fortune is estimated at $50 million – comes just days after the two largest bank failures since Washington Mutual Bank’s 2008.

“There are a lot of things I can’t do, but I can write a check,” she insisted according to Entertainment Tonight. “And these days it’s a form of courage, because I know what’s going on.”

Sharon Stone was rewarded for her actions against breast cancer during this evening. The actress also paid tribute to her brother Patrick Stone, who recently passed away at the age of 57, at the event.
