AceShowbiz - Charlize Theron has finally broken her silence on wild dating rumors linking her to Brad Pitt. Months after the speculation first started and then died down, the South Africa-born actress addressed it on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show".
During her appearance on the daytime talk show to promote her new film "Bombshell" with her co-stars Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie, the guests played a game of "Would You Rather?" in which participants would choose which man they'd date between two shown on the screen. In this special version, however, Nicole and Margot were asked to choose "Who Would Charlize Rather?" to help their friend, who is currently single, find a man.
At one point, when Lenny Kravitz's face appeared on the screen, Nicole pointed out that she dated Charlize's potential suitor. "This is awkward, move on," the "Big Little Lies" star said with a giggle, adding though, "This is so.... I love Lenny, I so recommend him."
Host Ellen DeGeneres later replaced Lenny's photo with one that showed Brad Pitt. "I did not date Brad," Nicole quipped, prompting Charlize to respond, "No, but I apparently did. I had an entire relationship that I didn't even know about."
Ellen then reminded the "Mad Max: Fury Road" star that she was spotted sitting together with the "Ad Astra" actor at an event in the Hollywood hotel Chateau Marmont, which is how the rumors of their alleged rumors started out.
"Brad came over to Chateau afterwards, changed his outfit and joined Charlize in a corner of the bar," a source told HollywoodLife about the two stars' sighting in L.A. in January. "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."
