Though the two met years ago, the romance has started to bloom only recently after being friends for a while, and the relationship developed naturally.
“They have been casually seeing each other for nearly a month now. They’ve been friends for some time, but things have developed,” a source told the British tabloid.
Reports also claim that the Hollywood A-list duo have been seen together in public at a screening last week and they engaged in public displays of affection.
“They were ridiculously touchy-feely and his arm was around her back. At one point he winked at her. Brad seemed in a really good place — they both looked really happy,” the publication quoted the source.
The internet apparently supported the idea of Pitt and Theron together.
Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron?! I'm all for it!

Since his divorce with Angelina Jolie in 2016, Pitt managed to reach an agreement with Jolie on the custody of their 6 children. As for Theron, her last public relationship had been with Penn, which ended in 2015.
Neither Pitt nor Theron has spoken out to make the rumours official.
UPDATE (22nd January):
A source has confirmed to PEOPLE that the rumours about Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron dating are false.
“They have not been out together recently, and were never dating. Reports of them being involved romantically are false,” said the source.
The source also shut down The Sun’s claim that Theron’s ex, Sean Penn, introduced the two. “That couldn’t be more false. Not in the slightest.”
