Belén Rueda explains her health problems: "I have a stent in my head"

At the beginning of November 2023, Belén Rueda attended the El Hormiguero program to present La Ermita, one of her latest films. During the interview, the acclaimed actress opened up to Pablo Motos and talked about the stressful routines that she had suffered for a long time, something that led her to suffer a temporary stroke.

''I thought it was lipothymia, which makes you dizzy and you lose consciousness for a very short time. But my sister came and called the ambulance (...) Then the ambulance came and they took me to the hospital. And it was a temporary stroke. "I got a big scare and they told me it was because of stress," said the protagonist of The Orphanage, Julia's Eyes or Perfect Strangers.

Although this episode made her more aware of her limits and reminded her that sometimes it is necessary to stop and rest in order to give her best, Rueda has continued recording different audiovisual projects.

''Thank God, nothing happened to me. In fact, my neurologist tells me that now I am better than before because they discovered an aneurysm and they operated on me, otherwise I would have had a major stroke," the actress stated, making it clear that this health problem made her alert and worried. more for herself.

In the conversation with the media, Rueda has confessed that she has a stent and that during her work Salomé they put her face down, something that worries her a little: ''I don't know where the stent that I have in my head is going to go, the same I find him one day on the ground. But you don't have to live in fear."

While many actresses see how patriarchy limits their work and how from the age of 40 they begin to get fewer roles on the small and big screen, Rueda is experiencing a great professional moment.
