AceShowbiz - Charlize Theron and ex Sean Penn reunited at the Cannes International Film Festival to promote their movie "The Last Face". The former couple kept their distance as they posed for photographers in a group picture during the event.
Co-stars Javier Bardem and Adele Exarchopoulos stood as buffers between Charlize and Penn during the photo call at the Palais des Festivals on Friday, May 20. Charlize wore a cream-colored Givenchy dress while Penn was dressed in khakis, T-shirt and jacket.
While neither commented on their frosty run-in, Charlize previously blamed the media for "sensationalizing things." She said, "When you leave a relationship there has to be some f**king crazy story or some crazy drama. And the f**king ghosting thing, like literally, I still don't even know what it is. It's just its own beast."
"The Last Face" which was directed by Penn was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes, but the movie got panned by critics. "I finished the film so it's not a discussion that I can be of any value to," the director responded to the negative reviews. "I stand behind the film as it is, and certainly everyone is entitled to their response."
