Sharon Stone claims she was unable to help Britney due to her own struggles

Basic Instinct star Sharon Stone has recently claimed that Britney Spears begged her for help while she was going through her breakdown in 2007.

Sharon, 63, has now confessed that she was unable to provide her support to the singer at the time because she was also dealing with her own struggles which she described as “very difficult”.

On Wednesday, Stone appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show as a virtual guest.

The topic of discussion turned to Britney, 39, after the Grammy-award singer had mentioned Sharon as one of few women who “truly inspire” her life.

The mother of two recently took to her socials and posted a slideshow of famous women such as Sharon, Natalie Portman, her sister Jamie Lynn Spears and others and wrote: “These are the women that have truly inspired my life!!!!”

She continued: “Being away from family and my boyfriend while quarantining was really hard for me but the good thing about social media is we can connect in a different way that helps us feel not alone in this crazy world !!!

“These cool ladies always add a spark to my day !!!!”

Speaking openly to Kelly regarding Britney, Sharon said: “Britney wrote to me a very long and important, poignant letter during a very difficult time in her life ― about the time when people would recognise her for when she shaved her head ― wanting me to help her.

“I was in a very difficult time of my life and I couldn’t help myself."

She added: “The truth of the matter is, we both needed help. She needed help and I needed help.”

Delving into the conversation a bit deeper, host Kelly and the Total Recall actress discussed Britney’s conservatorship and the Free Britney campaign. Sharon also added further insight on her perspective of the entertainment industry.

The actress said: “The true fact of it is it’s very hard to be a very successful woman and not have everyone controlling you, taking your finances and handling you.

“Women, and I’m sure all of the young stars ― get handled. There is a huge breaking point, and there is a point where you get broken.”

She explained: “The thing with Britney Spears is so out of control and so awful.

“I can say, certainly, it’s been very out of control and very awful more than once in my life and I have certainly had it.

“It’s very complicated to take control of your life. It’s very hard to get control of your finances.”

Daily Star has contacted Britney's spokeswoman for comment.
