Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are engaged, according to a new report from OK magazine. The tabloid reports that Theron and Penn are the latest couple to try and make it official in 2014.
After less than a full year of dating, Penn reportedly popped the question to Theron during a recent trip to Paris, France. The vacation trip happened in November 2014, and Theron has reportedly refused to wear her engagement ring from the twice-divorced actor.
Theron and Penn were rumored to have gotten engaged back in July 2014 with sources saying, “They want to get married very soon. They always intended to have another child.”
Now, rumors are making the rounds again that the happy couple are planning to tie the knot in 2015. Penn asked her to take their relationship to the next level and she has agreed to the engagement, Hollywood Life reports.
A source close to the situation said, “There’s no ring, but they are committed.”
Charlize Theron and Sean Penn have been close friends for a very long time, but only decided to become romantically involved last year. This will be Charlize Theron’s first marriage, but it would be Sean Penn’s third if the rumors of an engagement are true. Penn was married to Madonna for four years from 1985 to 1989, followed by his second marriage to Robin Wright from 1996 to 2010. He and Wright share two children, Hopper and Dylan, while Theron has one adopted son, Jackson.
There were rumors making the rounds that Theron banned Penn from speaking to his ex-wife, but Gossip Cop has blasted those reports as lies. The rumors began from a Star magazine article claiming that Theron threatened to call time on her relationship with Penn because of his contact with Wright. The magazine claimed that prior to Wright ending things with Ben Foster, she had zero contact with Penn, but afterward, she reached out to Penn to discuss their personal relationships. The magazine’s source reportedly said, “But after Robin ended things [with Ben], they began talking again. She was looking for a familiar shoulder to cry on.”
