Our favourite Oscar winning couple, Charlize Theron and Sean Penn have called it quits on their one and a half year relationship.
The couple who were rumored to be engaged have put an end to their whirlwind romance. This comes as a shock as Charlize recently called Sean ‘The Love of My life.’
The couple had been friends for 18 years before turning their friendship into a relationship. “What I guess I am trying to say is: A friend kind of stepped into that role, and I really didn’t see it coming,” Theron told Vogue last May. “Sean and I have known each other for eighteen years. We were just really good friends. And it’s been slow going because you are aware that you could screw that up and lose it. We had to think about it. But at the end of the day, it was somewhat effortless. It just kind of naturally happened, and before I knew it, I was in something that was making my life better — the people who really love me can see the effect it has had on me.”
This is such sad news for the couple. Only this year Sean had said he would get married again. “You say I’ve been married twice before, but I’ve been married under circumstances where I was less informed than I am today,” Penn told Esquire UK in March, speaking of his future with Theron. “So I wouldn’t even consider it 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.”
