Iconic screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has revealed that he had a stroke months ago with the doctor telling him that his blood pressure was so high that he was ‘supposed to be dead.’

The 61-year-old filmmaker told the New York Times on Wednesday that he had the brain attack back in November while writing his new Broadway musical Camelot.

Sorkin revealed that he had experienced the symptoms of a stroke in the middle of the night as he bumped into walls and spilled his orange juice while walking around in his home.

There have also been long-term effects like he still cannot taste food and even slurred his words for around a month after it happened and even couldn’t sign his name ‘until recently’.

He explained: ‘Mostly it was a loud wake-up call. I thought I was one of those people who could eat whatever he wanted, smoke as much as he wanted, and it’s not going to affect me. Boy, was I wrong.’
