(contactmusic.com) - Sharon Stone and Cristian Slater have confirmed rumours they're dating and now plan to spend Christmas (06) together. The starry couple, who co-star in new movie Bobby, sparked romance rumours when they attended a string of events together, but refused to confirm their relationship. But now 48-year-old Stone and her 37-year-old beau aren't hiding their affections for each other - they recently attended a party for fashion label Dolce + Gabbana at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles arm-in-arm and made sure everyone knew they were a couple.

A source close to Stone says, "They're both really happy - but they don't have long-term expectations. "It's a fun fling for the holidays and Sharon is a good influence. She rarely drinks and has three kids. It's a good match for now."
