“They were ridiculously touchy-feely and his arm was around her back. At one point he winked at her,” the source described.

Pitt, 55, has struggled after his separation from Jolie, but the source said he seems to be doing better. “Brad seemed in a really good place — they both looked really happy.”

Whether the two are dating has yet to be confirmed. Sources disagree on how the two met. However, Theron is all too familiar with Jolie, who still has legal beef with Pitt.

1. How did Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron meet?

The Sun's source said that Sean Penn is reportedly the link between the two actors.

Given his history with Theron, 43, this is an interesting position for him. The two were in a relationship for two years, from 2013 to 2015. They became engaged in December 2014. A month after the couple was seen as the Cannes Film Festival in May 2015 for the premiere of “Mad Max,” sources began to report the couple had split. Theron described Penn as “the love of my life” shortly before their split.


A source told People magazine, however, that "[The Sun's claim] couldn't be more false. Not in the slightest." 

"About six months ago, [Pitt and Theron] did a shoot together. So they have spent time together."

The two shot an ad for Breitling with Adam driver last year.

2. Is Brad Pitt's ex-wife Angelina Jolie feuding with Charlize Theron?

According to Radar Online, Jolie and Theron have a long-standing professional feud. They have sought many of the same parts. Various sources said that Jolie took a role in The Tourist that Theron had turned down.


“The hate-fest between these two started a long time ago and just won’t stop,” a source said. “It’s as though directors are getting a buzz out of playing them against each other, by dangling a script to both of them then leaving them to...slug it out.”

3. How does Jennifer Aniston feel about Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron dating?

While the verdict is still out on whether or not Pitt and Theron are actually dating, Aniston has reportedly weighed in on the speculation, with a source telling Hollywood Life that Pitt's ex is pretty much unbothered.


“She’s moved on and not focusing or paying attention to any of it. She’s very busy working on herself and her new TV project,” the source explained. “For Jen, Brad is a thing of a past and whatever he does in his life now it’s his choice.”

4. Pitt has sobered up since his marriage ended tumultuously in 2016.

Pitt revealed in an interview with GQ Style in 2017 that he had quit drinking. When asked why, he replied, “Don’t want to live that way anymore.” He admitted that drinking was a serious problem in his marriage.

Pitt and Jolie’s split after 12 years was a whirlwind of drama in September 2016. After an alleged physical and verbal altercation between Pitt and son Maddox, then 14, during a trip on a private jet from London to the United States, Jolie ended the relationship. She took the kids with her, and an anonymous phone call was made to the authorities for which Pitt was investigated for child abuse. The case closed with no charges against Pitt.

Though the two had split, they seemed to have a civil relationship until August 2018. Jolie alleged that Pitt had “paid no meaningful child support” since September 2016 in a court filing. Pitt’s lawyer argued that the filing was inaccurate, a “thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage. Pitt had loaned Jolie $8 million for her house, and “paid over $1.3 million in bills for the benefit” of his ex-wife and their children. One of Jolie’s attorneys responded “A loan is not … child support” and all Jolie was asking was for Pitt to pay half of the children’s expenses.


5. Both Theron and Pitt have an extensive star-studded list of exes.

Theron’s exes include Sean Penn, Keanu Reeves, Alexander Skarsgard, and Ryan Reynolds. Her last public relationship was with Penn.

Pitt’s exes include Sinitta, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, and Angelina Jolie. His last public relationship was with Jolie.
