Let’s hope Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are in it for the long haul — because they’re going to be spending a lot of time together, professionally, in the near future! The actress is reportedly set to star in upcoming film The Last Face, which will be directed by her boyfriend of three months.
In the movie, the 38-year-old will play a doctor who is doing humanitarian relief in Africa where there’s violent political conflict occurring. Javier Bardem is also set to star, as another doctor in the area, and their story involves making tough moral decisions during this period of civil unrest.
Rumors of a romantic relationship between Charlize and Sean began when they were seen vacationing together around the New Year. Since then, they’ve attended official events together, and he’s spent time with her son, so things are definitely heating up quickly. Here’s to hoping they last!
