South African award-winning actress Charlize Theron is reportedly dating Hollywood hotshot Brad Pitt, after the pair were introduced by Theron’s ex-fiancé, Sean Penn.

The 43-year-old actress and 55-year-old actor are said to have been dating for almost a month now after their initial meeting at a showbiz function.
“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,” a source tells UK and Irish newspaper The Sun on Sunday.
This new romance is the first for Pitt since he split with his long-time love Angelina Jolie, and comes despite a previous claim by a source close to the actor that it was unlikely he would date another celebrity again.
Theron and Pitt recently enjoyed a date in Los Angeles after attending a screening.
An insider says, “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.
“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.”
