Rumors are flying that Charlize Theron and Sean Penn have struck up a romance.
The pair was spotted vacationing in Hawaii over the holidays, enjoying some time at Penn's beachfront home in Oahu. Theron's son Jackson was not in the tropical locale as the 38-year-old actress rang in the New Year with 53-year-old actor.
According to People, Penn spent Tuesday afternoon (Dec. 31) surfing while Theron relaxed on the beach in a multicolored striped bikini. Earlier in the week, the reported couple met up with a male friend and sat in the sand, enjoying the water view.
On Jan. 1, Theron and Penn arrived at LAX Airport on the same flight and allegedly spent the night at the "Prometheus" star's house. The duo left the home on Jan. 2 in separate cars.
"Charlize and Sean have been friends for years," a source tells People. "They have been spotted out together several times in the past few years. Even when Charlize was dating Stuart [Townsend]. They both had dinner with Sean several times."
