Stone's car nursery
09:30 21 June 2005
Sharon Stone has sparked controversy by leaving her four-year-old son asleep in a car for two hours.
The stunning actress was dining at London's fashionable The Ivy restaurant and left adopted son Roan in the car with a chauffeur.
The youngster slept through the evening, not even waking when photographers rushed to snap his famous mom as she left the exclusive restaurant in the early hours of Sunday morning (19.06.05).
However, fans have been left wondering why the 47-year-old 'Basic Instinct' star, who adopted another son, Laird, four weeks ago, didn't leave her son at home.
An onlooker told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "I was stunned when I saw she had left her son sleeping in the car. Why on earth would she do that when she has a house a couple of miles away?
"It was a hot night and he could have been traumatised by the camera flashes going off."
The screen beauty is about to start a court battle with Roan's adopted father, her ex-husband Phil Bronstein, for full custody of Roan.
