Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron are not dating despite what The Sun reported. A source had reported to the media channel that Theron and Pitt “have been casually seeing each other for nearly a month now.” The insider had also mentioned that it was through Sean Penn, the Atomic Blonde actress’s ex-fiancé, that she met Brad Pitt years back for their friendship to bloom into a romance only recently.

New sources have crushed these relationship rumors and clarified that Theron and Pitt are merely friends. They have not been hanging out together lately and were only doing so during the days they were working on their Breitling watches project about six months back. To quote what the source said to People magazine, Charlize and Brad “did a shoot together six months ago [for Breitling watches]. They have not been out together recently and were never dating. Reports of them being involved romantically are false.”

Another insider told Entertainment Tonight the same thing. However, this source also added that the two actors have become “better friends” recently following their shoot together. Hinting on the possibility of them may be getting romantically involved some point later in their lives, the insider said that while Brad Pitt and Charlize are not ready for a relationship right now, they do “connect on many levels.” As per reports, the World War Z star doesn’t want a Hollywood celeb for a lifetime partner following his split from Angelina Jolie.

Brad and Angelina’s relationship ended rather messily in 2016 while the last relationship Theron was in was with Sean Penn. The couple broke up in 2015. Theron has two adopted children whereas Pitt shares three adopted and two of his own kids with Jolie. It is clear that there is nothing between these Theron and Pitt except friendship. At least, nothing that the public knows of.
