It looks like Sharon Stone’s five-year marriage to newspaper editor Phil Bronstein is basically extinct. Her reps have declined to comment, but the New York Post quotes sources as saying that the actress and the journalist have separated, with Stone living in the couple’s Los Angeles home and Bronstein living in their house in San Francisco.

Stone and Bronstein, the executive vice president and editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, married on Valentine’s Day, 1998. In 2000, they adopted a baby boy they named Roan. Since then, the marriage has undergone some trials, like Stone’s apparent brain aneurysm a couple years ago and Bronstein’s painful encounter with a toe-munching Komodo dragon at the Los Angeles Zoo. According to the Post, the couple decided to separate when she returned from the recent European shoot of ”A Different Loyalty,” in which she plays the American-born wife of British Cold War turncoat Kim Philby (Rupert Everett).

The Post reports that no arrangements have been made yet regarding the couple’s finances or the custody of their child. ”They haven’t figured any of that out yet,” an insider told the paper. But we’ll probably be hearing about it soon, as the 45-year-old star will probably be hitting the promotional trail for the thriller ”Cold Creek Manor,” which comes out in September and marks her first Hollywood feature since ”The Muse” four years ago.
