Several famous actors, actresses, and musicians have been in comas. For some, this was the unfortunate result of an overdose, while others were medically induced into this state after being involved in serious accidents. Sadly, not all of these famous people came out of it alive.

Who is the most famous person who has been in a coma? Sharon Stone tops our list. In 2001, the Casino actress nearly passed from a brain aneurysm, and she even claims that she saw the "white light." Burt Reynolds slipped into one and almost passed when he was trying to kick addiction.

NBA star Lamar Odom fell into a coma after overdosing while at a Las Vegas cathouse in October 2015. Odom's ex-wife, Khloé Kardashian, immediately flew to his bedside, despite the fact that the two had officially divorced earlier in the year.

According to inside sources, doctors found crack and "virtually every drug imaginable" in the athlete's system. They suspected he may have suffered an ischemic stroke, which is often associated with drug use. Doctors predicted that he may have brain damage as a result.
