Theron and Penn Split
Actors Charlize Theron and Sean Penn have split after a passionate two-year relationship, a source told a major media outlet. The couple was spending a lot of time with Theron's 3-year-old boy Jackson. The last time Theron and Penn were seen together was at the Cannes Film Festival red carpet in May. Theron said in an interview just a few weeks ago that Penn was the love of her life.
“Putting aside that he’s my partner, he’s the love of my life; for the first time, I felt that my work was really bleeding into my life, and that made it hard,” she told the magazine.
However, the pair was not seen together for weeks now, and they allegedly lived in separate houses – while Theron resided with her son in the family house in Hollywood, Penn lived in his Malibu mansion. He previously put the house up for sale but soon withdrew it from the market. It is now clear why he did that. The actors’ publicists have yet to respond to the news. Penn was seen without Theron recently in Brentwood, where he was buying cigarettes and magazines from a kiosk.
