Charlize Theron … who? Sean Penn was spotted celebrating Minka Kelly’s 35th birthday in LA and it turns out they are reportedly dating! Do you think they make a cute couple?
Wow, Sean Penn, 54, moves fast! Less than two weeks since since he and Charlize Theron, 39, reportedly called off their engagement, he was spotted dining at French Laundry with Minka Kelly. Although there were three other people there, a report claims it definitely seemed like a date.
Not only did Sean pay for the fancy meal which included truffle mac and cheese and a birthday cake, claims TMZ, but Sean reportedly even serenaded her “Happy Birthday!” They recently were said to have met at one of Sean’s Haiti charity events. We must say we are shocked considering the break up with Charlize is so fresh.
Sean and Charlize dated for a year and a half of dating before getting engaged but they mysteriously split right after they attended the Cannes Film Festival in the south of France. Sean even said why he wanted to marry her: “You say I’ve been married twice before, but I’ve been married under circumstances where I was less informed than I am today,” he told Esquire UK. “So I wouldn’t even consider [marrying Charlize as] a third marriage, I’d consider it a first marriage on its own terms if I got married again. I mean, I like the tradition. A friend of mine wrote a line, ‘Without tradition, new things die.’ And I don’t want new things to die.”
We have reached out to their reps! HollywoodLifers, do you think they make a cute couple?
