Charlize Theron and Sean Penn Split – Will it Get Ugly?
Now that Charlize Theron and Sean Penn have split up, is it going to get ugly? Is Penn going to regret all of the syrupy expressions of love he used when talking to the press about Theron? The actor notorious for keeping his private life private seemed unable to hold his tongue when it came to his former lady love.
The couple had been friends for years before finally hooking up and becoming a couple. They were seen on red carpets and out in public where Penn showed a more human side when pictured playing with Theron’s son. They appeared to become a happy little family and the normally reticent Penn even discussed the relationship with reporters.
Once married to Madonna in a ceremony famously marred by the presence of paparazzi, Penn reportedly expressed a desire to shoot down the helicopters overhead. The marriage ended with reports that Penn had been abusive. He later went on to have kids with second wife, Robin Wright, but that marriage also ended.
Penn credited Theron with taming his demons. In an interview with Esquire Penn took what many felt were digs at his exes when he spoke of being in love for the first time. Saying, “You say I’ve been married twice before but I’ve been married under circumstances where I was less informed that I am today, so I would even consider a third marriage. I’d consider it a first marriage on its own terms if I got married again.”
Despite the harsh words for his previous relationships Penn gushed about being in love again expressing surprise telling the mag, “To run into somebody now who you care about is a much more passionate, deeper, truer and – God!- a much happier feeling. Its a lot more romantic and a lot more fulfilling to be in a relationship and think you’re a good person within it.”
No word on whether he regrets waxing so poetically about love and Theron now that the two have split up but US Weekly is reporting that Penn was dumped after Theron stopped taking his calls and was not responding to his text messages. Some reports claim she stopped speaking to the man she was supposedly secretly engaged to rather abruptly at the Cannes Film Festival last month.
The two will be forced to see one another again. Theron starred in The Last face, directed by Penn so expect to see them either putting on their best smiley faces or doing everything possible to avoid being photographed together when it is time for the premiere.
Did Charlize Theron suddenly stop speaking to Sean Penn, the man who had spent so much time with her and her son? And how did they keep it quiet all this time? What do you think happened? Let us know here at Haveuheard.
