CHARLIZE Theron has sparked rumors she’s dating Sean Penn!
The Hollywood stars — who have been friends for years — were seen getting cozy while dining together in Santa Monica on August 5.
Sean, 50, has reportedly been lending Charlize, 35, a shoulder to cry on following her split from boyfriend Stuart Townsend.
“He helped her through her split with Stuart [Townsend],” a source told In Touch Weekly magazine.
“Sean thinks she’s beautiful, and she thinks he’s brilliant.”
Theron split from Townsend — whom she had dated since meeting on the set of Trapped in 2001 — back in January.
Penn recently finalized his divorce from wife Robin Wright.
