Charlize Theron and Sean Penn recently ended their engagement.
The pair appeared to be loved up at Cannes. However, it would appear something happened at the event that drove them apart. Other sources claim, Sean’s attitude towards Charlize in recent months drove her to end it.
While together, they were uncharacteristically open about their love for each other, Charlize’s adopted son Jackson called Sean “Daddy”, Sean baby-proofed his house so Jackson could visit, the couple got engaged in France, and there were reports that they would adopt together. Then, while back in France, things suddenly came to an end.
Us Weekly notes, “An insider close to Penn tells Us Weekly exclusively that Theron abruptly stopped speaking with the actor during the Cannes Film Festival last month.” How, specifically, did she do that? “Charlize wasn’t responding to his calls and texts. She just cut it off,” …after 18-months together. He moved out of her house too.
RadarOnline claims, Sean was too harsh while making their movie, The Last Face, in South Africa. “Everyone knows how intense Sean is, and there is no exception on movie sets,” reveals the source. “Charlize felt he was overly critical of her at times. Separating work and personal became hard, and the lines were definitely blurred.”
