The rumors may be true. Charlize Theron and Sean Penn appear to be an item.
The two Oscar-winning actors were spotted out shopping at a Whole Foods on Wednesday, Jan. 22, along with Theron's 2-year-old son, Jackson, according to People magazine.
Theron and Penn sparked rumors of a romance earlier this year when they were seen together in Hawaii. The actress and her son stayed with 53-year-old Penn at his beachfront home in Oahu over the New Year's holiday.
The two actors were also seen getting cozy at the Sean Penn & Friends HELP HAITI HOME Gala & Fundraiser Benefitting J/P Haitian Relief Organization in Beverly Hills, California on Jan. 12.
Piers Morgan, who also attended the gala that night, wrote in a column for The Daily Mail that he told Penn the night of the event, "Congrats on a great night ...And congrats on Charlize too."
To which the actor reportedly replied, "She's a keeper, that's for sure ... well, I'll do my best to keep her anyway!"
Penn was previously married to actress Robin Wright. The couple divorced in 2010 after 14 years of marriage. Theron previously dated actor Stuart Townsend for nearly nine years until they split in January 2010.
