Sharon Stone confessed in a new interview she often fights to overcome her mental Health struggles.

“We’re all trying to confront our demons, and we’re all acting out — me, too,” the “Basic Instinct” star, 66, said on “Turkish Tea Talk with Alex Salmond” Thursday, “and trying to figure out how to keep getting back up, keep helping people up even if we put them down, and make sure we’re all back up.”

Stone, who works with the World Health Organization, noted that one in 10 people “on a global level” are having “a mental crisis.”

The movie star then shared that she believes people should be trying to fix themselves instead of relying on just political figures for policies that may help them.

“To try to say, it has to be our leaders, well, which leader do you think that’s going to be? It must start with the individual,” Stone explained.

“You must stand strong, and when you blow it? OK, so what? That was two steps ago.”

She reiterated, “You have to get back up, get yourself together and help whoever you think you bumped around, and keep moving forward — and instant forgiveness. Instant forgiveness for yourself.”

Moments later in the discussion with the Turkish news show, Stone became emotional when discussing how she used her Hollywood platform to advocate for marginalized groups.

In 2013, the “Casino” star became a Nobel Laureate after receiving the Peace Summit Award for her work for people with HIV and AIDS.

“Suddenly, I was like, ‘I’m in the right goddamn room.’ These are my people,” Stone said of how she felt when attending a panel about how to create global peace.

Becoming more emotional, she added amid tears, “I would stand in the street with these people. I would risk my lives for these people. These people get me, I get them.”

The “Total Recall” star concluded, “It took 35 years, but I’m in the right room, and I never told people here, in LA, that I even won. I didn’t tell anybody because I thought, ‘How can I tell people in the movie business that I won a Nobel prize?’

Stone’s candid interview comes weeks after she made yet another startling confession about her career.

In March, the “Running Wild” star revealed for the first time the name of the movie producer who allegedly  pressured her to have sex with a former co-star in an effort to get a “better” performance.

On the “Louis Theroux” podcast, Stone claimed that Robert Evans called her into his office when they were making the 1993 film “Sliver” and told her she “should sleep with Billy Baldwin.”

“Now all of a sudden I’m in the ‘I have to f–k people’ Business,” she added in the episode.

Stone shared on “Turkish Tea Talk” that she now spends about 17 hours a day painting and will only return to acting for a role that’s “really powerful and meaningful.”
