Yeah, it’s The Sun but it’s Sunday, so let’s run with it, shall we? Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt are reportedly a thing now, after “kindling their romance over the Christmas period.” And they were supposedly introduced by Charlize’s craggy and cranky ex Sean Penn! Sure, you’re slightly shaking your head at how this one is total bullshit by my, wouldn’t it make the veins in Angie’s forehead pop with rage if it was true? Charlize doesn’t waste time trying to cultivate a saintly image at the UN! She shills perfume in beautifully shot television ads, makes movies, and lives her damn life. We like that in a screen goddess!
A source says that Charlize, 43, and Ex-Stoner Dad, 55, were “all over each other” at a “showbiz function” last month and she’s visited him at his place in Los Feliz but she has not met his kids yet. They’ve supposedly known each other for a while now, having been introduced by Sean Penn.
A source said: “They have been casually seeing each other for nearly a month now. They’ve been friends for some time — ironically through Sean — but things have developed.”
That showbiz function? It was actually dual Saturday night movie screenings (If Beale Street Could Talk for Brad which he executive produced and Roma for her) which ended with a drink together at the bar at the Chateau Marmont.
The source said: “Brad came over to Chateau afterwards, changed his outfit and joined Charlize in a corner of the bar.
“She was on a vodka cocktail while he stuck to mineral water.
And it got heated. Or he was brushing some lint off her. Or these were two people who were absolutely not Charlize or Brad but it’s The Sun.
“They were ridiculously touchy-feely and his arm was around her back. At one point he winked at her.
“Brad seemed in a really good place — they both looked really happy.”
WINK. Ok, this sounds like it could have been the most boring drinks date ever but if he played his cards right, maybe Charlie re-enacted her famed approach to walking like royalty for him which would enliven any occasion.
