The 62-year-old Oscar nominee made an appearance on the Films to be Buried With podcast, and talked about her near-death experience when she was hit by lightning.

According to Stone, the moment was “really intense” and mostly indescribable.

I was at home. We had our own well and I was filling the iron with water, and I had one hand on the faucet and one hand on the iron and the well got hit with lightning.

The lightning came up through the water. I got picked up and thrown across the kitchen, and I hit the refrigerator, and I was like ‘Whoa!’

My mother just belted me across the face and brought me to. My mom threw me in the car and drove me to the hospital. And the EKG was just showing such electricity in my body.

I had to go get EKGs every single day for like 10 days. It was so crazy.”

Being struck by lightning wasn’t Stone’s only brush with death as she suffered a major stroke in 2001 and also survived a near-fatal cut to the neck at age 14.
