AceShowbiz - Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron are poised to be the next Hollywood power couple. The two have been reportedly dating for nearly a month now. While they have known each other for years after being introduced by her ex-fiance Sean Penn, the spark between them reportedly flew over the Christmas season.
"They have been casually seeing each other for nearly a month now," a source tells The Sun of the 55-year-old actor and the 43-year-old actress. "They've been friends for some time - ironically through Sean - but things have developed."
The rumored lovers were allegedly spotted showing some PDA at a recent public event. On Saturday, January 12, Brad attended the private screening for "If Beale Street Could Talk" which he executive produces, while Charlize was a special guest at a screening of "Roma" at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont. Brad reportedly later joined Charlize at Chateau.
"Brad came over to Chateau afterwards, changed his outfit and joined Charlize in a corner of the bar," the source says. "She was on a vodka cocktail while he stuck to mineral water." The pair didn't seem to hold back from showing their affection to each other as the source dishes, "They were ridiculously touchy-feely and his arm was around her back. At one point he winked at her."
The source adds of "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" actor, who got separated from Angelina Jolie in 2016 after more than ten years together and two years of marriage, "Brad seemed in a really good place - they both looked really happy." While she is believed to have visited Brad at his home in Loz Feliz, L.A., she reportedly has not met his six children.
Brad and Angelina share six kids, Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins, Vivienne & Knox. The former couple had a messy divorce and custody battle for two years, before they reached a custody agreement last November. Brad was previously married to Jennifer Aniston from 2000 until their divorce in 2005.
As for Charlize, she is a mother to adopted children, August and Jackson. She began dating Sean Penn in 2013 and got engaged in 2014 after a year together, but called it quits in June 2015. Her famous exes also included singer Stephan Jenkins and Irish actor Stuart Townsend.
