Looks like the rumors were true: Sean Penn and Charlize Theron are a couple!
Piers Morgan revealed in a Daily Mail article that Penn and Theron both confirmed their romantic involvement at Penn's Haiti fundraiser on Jan. 11.
Approaching the couple's table, Morgan said to Theron: "I'm so glad you two have got together. Sean's a great guy." To which she replied, according to the CNN host, "I know," and put her hand on Penn's shoulder.
At one point in the evening, Penn said, "I'm a self-proclaimed Alpha male who owns 67 firearms," according to Morgan. "But I've had my mind changed about guns by a strong woman, a beautiful South African woman." In the article, Morgan also describes Theron's tragic past, in which her mother shot and killed her abusive father.
Later, Morgan says he congratulated Penn on a great night, "and congrats on Charlize, too." Penn's charming response? "She's a keeper, that's for sure ... well, I’ll do my best to keep her anyway."
Rumors about the nature of Penn and Theron's relationship started earlier this month when they were spotted vacationing in Hawaii together.
Penn's ex-wife, Robin Wright, recently got engaged to her boyfriend, actor Ben Foster. She and Penn have two children together, daughter Dylan, 22, and son Hopper, 20. Theron has a son, Jackson, 2.
