According to himself, the famous rapper almost died in

2005 because of a methadone overdose. He claimed later,

“My doctor told me the amount of methadone I’d taken was

equivalent to shooting up four bags of heroin.

Even when they told me I almost died, it didn’t click.”




Hugh Hefner

When asked of a time he came close to death, the Playboy

founder Hugh Hefner confessed that he almost died at one

instance when he choked on a sex toy. He said,

“What is the closest I’ve come to death? There was a moment

when I was having sex with four Playmates and I almost

swallowed a Ben Wa ball.” For some reason,

we are not surprised at all.




50 Cent

50 Cent almost died in 2000 when he was shot nine times at

close range. He recalls the incident, saying, “It happens so

fast that you don’t even get a chance to shoot back… I was

scared the whole time… I was looking in the rear-view mirror

like, Oh crap, somebody shot me in the face!

It burns, burns, burns.”





Joaquin Phoenix had an almost fatal car crash when his

brakes failed back in 2006 on the famous Sunset Boulevard

in Los Angeles. The famous star lay upside down in his flipped

vehicle, and in a strange twist of fate, German director

Werner Herzog pulled him to safety. Having witnessed the

crash, the filmmaker also reportedly stopped Phoenix

from lighting a cigarette, which would have burst

his car into flames.





As a teenager, Ryan Reynolds pursued a skydiving licence

with a group of friends. After a number of successful jumps,

the 13th would prove to be tragic as his parachute failed to

deploy, causing him to plummet wildly to the ground

below. Ryan told Jimmy Fallon that he was scared to pull his

emergency chute for fear of having no backup. Thankfully,

the reserve pull saved the famous actor, but he still

retains a fear of flying.




Sharon Stone

Basic Instinct star, Sharon Stone, has told how she had a white

light experience during her brain scare. Stone says she almost

died after internal bleeding caused by a tear in an artery

at the base of her skull.




Nikki Sixx

From a career standpoint, Motley Crue has had nine lives.

However, we’d estimate that bassist/co-founder Nikki Sixx alone

has eaten up at least half of those. Of course, none of his

near-death experiences have been as infamous as the one

on December 23, 1987. After a night of drug-fuelled partying

with pals (including Guns n’ Roses members Slash and Steven

Adler and Ratt’s Robbin Crosby), Sixx was injected with

one last syringe of heroin and promptly passed out cold.

Unfortunately, this overdose wasn’t like the others; he

had turned blue, and couldn’t be roused. The famous

bassist was declared dead after they failed in the E.R. to

bring his heart back, but then the miracle of miracles

happened: Sixx eventually woke up just a few minutes later.

True to his fame, he was not thrilled to be in the

hospital and left it in style.




George Lucas

As a youngster, Lucas was considered a loser. According

to his father, he was good at only two things: cruising

and hanging out. Wanting to race cars seemed to be his only

ambition. Then, three days before he was to graduate from

high school, without warning or advance-behaviour cues,

Lucas was involved in a spectacular car crash. For three

days he hung between life and death and was hospitalized

for two weeks more. During that time he realized his

purpose in life and a few years later he “donated” to

the world the awesome Star Wars trilogy.
