We’ve all heard about near death experiences and how there was a tunnel, light, and all that jazz; it’s never real until we can relate. Luckily, Hollywood royalty have shared some of their own experiences with us, so we can. Here are eight celebrities who have had near death experiences themselves and are (or were) very open about what it was like and what they saw on their journey. Read on to see what they’ve got to say.

1. Gary Busey

Gary Busey often ends up on TMZ and other celeb gossip shows, spouting off baffling talk about this and that. In December 1988 the actor had an accident on his motorcycle and suffered a severe head injury. Always positive and jovial when telling of his experience, the actor says that he saw balls of light after dying on the operating table.

He has also said that he had a conversation with a being that gave him positive reinforcement about where he was and where he was headed in life before giving him the choice to go or stay. Gary decided to come back and although the head injury he suffered left him with irreparable brain damage, he’s still working and as happening as ever.
