Sharon Stone's rocket man refuge
13:30 15 August 2005
Sharon Stone was given refuge by Elton John at his country home during London's recent terrorist attacks.
The Hollywood actress fled the capital, where she was filming the 'Basic Instinct' sequel, after the bombings on July 7 and the subsequent failed attacks two weeks later.
She left her 4,000GBP-a-week luxury London apartment and moved into Elton's mansion, which is 40km away.
Sharon's landlord, Peter Lukas, who continued to rent her the apartment until August 3, revealed to Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper: "They continued to lease the premises but she didn't want to return to central London.
"I was led to believe that she considered that she was physically at risk."
The sexy star's publicist confirmed: "She did stay at Sir Elton John's home after the terrorist attack and left London shortly after as she had completed filming."
Unlike Sharon, other Hollywood stars have vowed to stay in London despite the bombings.
Rob Lowe recently insisted he would support the capital by moving his family there, while he stars in 'A Few Good Men' in the West End, while Scarlett Johansson, who has been in London shooting two Woody Allen movies, vowed not to be put off by the attacks.
