Sean Penn has confirmed he’s dating Oscar winner Charlize Theron. According to a blog post from Piers Morgan, Penn gushed about his new girlfriend at his Help Haiti Home gala on Jan. 11.
The CNN host wrote in MailOnline’s Event section that he approached the table Penn was sitting at with Theron.
“I walked over to Sean's table, where he was sitting with new girlfriend Charlize Theron. 'I'm so glad you two have got together,' I said, 'Sean's a great guy,’” Morgan wrote. "'I know,' she smiled, putting her hand round his shoulder.”
He recalled a sharing a moment with Penn later on in the night, saying around 2am he came up to him and called his new girlfriend a “keeper.”
"At 2 a.m., Sean came over, and bear-hugged me," Morgan wrote. "'Congrats on a great night,' I said. 'And congrats on Charlize too.' He laughed. 'She's a keeper, that's for sure . . . well, I'll do my best to keep her anyway!'"
Penn even mentioned Theron onstage talking about her anti-gun views. "I'm a self-proclaimed Alpha male who owns 67 firearms. But I've had my mind changed about guns by a strong woman, a beautiful South African woman. I don't need these cowardly instruments of violence and destruction, none of us do,” he said, Us Weekly reports.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Theron and Penn vacationed together in Hawaii for New Year’s.
