The Hollywood rumour mill has been as busy as ever, this time pairing actors Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt. But are Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt dating for real?
The Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt Dating Rumours
Tabloids have been reporting that the pair have been spotted canoodling in and around Hollywood over Christmas, after being introduced by Charlize's ex-fiancé Sean Penn.
“They have been casually seeing each other for nearly a month now," The Sun reported. "They’ve been friends for some time — ironically through Sean — but things have developed.”
The alleged couple were apparently touchy-feely with each other, looking really happy together.
Making this piece of gossip extra juicy is a reported feud between Charlize and Brad's ex Angelina Jolie. Radar Online reports that Jolie and Theron have been feuding over roles for years, and apparently, they hate each other's guts.
But is "BraLize" a real thing?
While we have to admit that Charlize and Brad would look amazing together, sources have told E! News that this particular rumour is totally false.
"They know each other, but it doesn't go beyond that," the source says. "They aren't dating and never were."
Contrary to the rumours that they were introduced by Sean Penn, the two met on a set for a Breitling advertisement. Actor Adam Driver was also involved in the shoot. According to a source, Brad and Charlize haven't seen each other since the shoot.
“About six months ago, they did a shoot together," an insider told People. "They have not been out together recently and were never dating. Reports of them being involved romantically are false.”
Had the rumours been true, it would've been the first time either Brad and Charlize had dated since their high-profile breakups.
Sources say that Brad probably isn't keen on dating a celebrity again.
"I can't see Brad dating someone super famous again, I can definitely see him dating someone with a lower profile," the source told MSN Entertainment. "Brad comes from a very traditional family, he's very close to his parents, Jane and Bill, and his brother and sister are both married with families. I could see him marrying again, but it will be a much more low-key relationship."
