So are Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron a thing? What even started this rumour?
People Magazine recently reported that the A-list pair met six months ago and have “spent some time together” since then. According to the outlet, Brad, 55, and Charlize, 43, first crossed paths while shooting a campaign for watch brand Breitling. So did this create a spark between these two? As it stand, it’s not exactly clear.
The Sun claims Brad and Charlize began dating over Christmas and were introduced by Therone’s former fiancé Sean Penn. People magazine has called this rumour “false.” While the pair have not made any comment publicly on the details of their relationship (whether it is a friendship or more than that), The Sun even alleges they recently met up to enjoy a cozy date night at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.
That said, it turns out they’re just friends. The two actors “have not been out together recently, and were never dating,” a source told People after the gossip spread. The insider added that “reports of them being involved romantically are false.”
A confidante also told Entertainment Tonight that Pitt and Theron “have known each other for years and recently became even better friends after working together on a campaign.” It looks like the campaign that the pair shot together just brought their friendship back to life and not actually a relationship. Pitt hasn’t publicly dated anyone since his 2016 split from ex-wife Angelina Jolie.
