"Slumdog Millionaire" star Dev Patel says that actress Sharon Stone flirted with him on the red carpet at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).
Mirror.co.uk reports Patel saying: "Sharon's great, she's been flirting with me all night. She was chasing me around earlier, slapping me. Sharon Stone! Can you believe it?"
Stone first spotted Dev at the pre-BAFTA party and ignored actor Mickey Rourke and went over to Patel to whisper, "I thought you were amazing in 'Slumdog Millionaire'."
A stunned Patel merely replied, "Thanks!"
An onlooker said: "Dev is young enough to be her son - even her grandson - but that didn't seem to stop Sharon flirting with him. As soon as she broke away, he grabbed his mobile and said, 'The lads are never going to believe this - I've got to text them about Sharon Stone.' Mickey Rourke looked a bit put out that this kid was getting all the action."
