Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron reportedly dating after her ex-fiance Sean Penn introduced them
The stunning couple allegedly started dating around Christmas last year and reportedly spent a lot of time together at Pitt's Los Feliz, California mansion
Brad Pitt is back in the dating scene again, and this time with yet another Hollywood A-lister. A full two years after his shocking split from Oscar-winning ex-wife Angelina Jolie, Pitt, 55, is reportedly seeing Charlize Theron.
The Sun shared the news of the 'Fight Club' actor and the 43-year-old actress being introduced to each other by the latter's ex-fiance, actor Sean Penn. "The new lovebirds were all over each over at a showbiz function last week," a source claimed to the publication. The said function was a showing of the latest Alfonso Cuaron masterpiece 'Roma' at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on January 12.
Theron was already at the party, and Pitt arrived later after the screening of his movie 'If Beale Street Could Talk', where he sparked news for posing with Blanca Blanco. "She was on a vodka cocktail while he stuck to mineral water," the source remarked about Theron and Pitt, who is said to have stopped drinking after his split from Jolie, 43.
"They were ridiculously touchy-feely and his arm was around her back. At one point he winked at her," the eyewitness noted. "Brad seemed in a really good place — they both looked really happy," added the source.
The stunning couple allegedly started dating around Christmas last year and reportedly spent a lot of time together at Pitt's Los Feliz, California mansion. Theron, however, is yet to meet Pitt's children, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, 10-year-olds Vivienne and Knox, Maddox, 16, and Pax, 14, all of whom he shares with Jolie. Theron also has two adopted children, August and Jackson.
"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," said the insider.
No official comment has been made by either of the actors nor their reps so far. Theron, who had been last romantically linked to Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard of 'Big Little Lies' fame, has never worked with Pitt in a movie before. She has however worked with Pitt's best friend Matt Damon in the 2000 film 'The Legend Of Bagger Vance.'
As for Pitt, his last known romantic partner was Jolie, even though there were several rumors about him rekindling flames with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, all of which have been since denied.
