Recalling her 2003 partnership with the charity to auction off a kiss for $50,000 Stone said, “We can’t be kissing everybody right now,” alluding to the coronavirus pandemic.

“No, unless you’ve had the COVID test — have you had a test?” asked Bush.

“I’ve had a few tests,” she answered. “In fact, I had two tests a week apart and I just got my results yesterday because I ran a fever for four days. And I had a few of the symptoms like nausea…” Stone, who self-quarantined, said her COVID-19 tests were negative.

The actress also shared a scary story from her childhood: She was struck by lightning.

“I was about…17. And I had a job at a Bob’s Big Boy (restaurant),” she said. “I was filling the iron with water to iron my uniform and we had our own well and the well got hit with lightning and the lightning came up through the water. And I got thrown across the kitchen. My mother was there, it was nuts. I got picked up and thrown…10, 12 feet. And I hit the refrigerator and I was knocked out. And my mother just belted me, just, like, boom! Belted me and brought me around.”
