According to a source for Us Weekly, Hollywood stars Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are planning to tie the knot. The source claims that Theron and Penn “decided to take their relationship to the next level.” The couple were first spotted together back in December 2013. The source also claims that the proposal was as non-traditional as you can expect from Penn and Theron. Penn didn’t propose with a ring, for one.
“There’s no ring, but they are committed,” the source said.
However, a representative for Sean Penn claims that the reports are nothing but speculation.
Back in June, Theron told Vogue that she is not a fan of traditional wedding ceremonies.
“I really do understand the importance and what that ceremony represents to so many people, but it’s just such a personal thing,” the Prometheus star said.
“Let’s put it this way: I never had the dream of the white dress. And watching other people getting married? I think it’s beautiful for them, but to be quite honest, usually I’m sitting there just devastated.”

Theron added, “It’s supposed to be this night of celebrating love, and all you see is a couple separated all night making sure everybody else is OK. It just looks like a lot of work.”
In the same Vogue interview, Theron also opened up about her relationship with Penn, saying that she didn’t “know how you have a healthy relationship with the whole world knowing about it.”
“What I guess I am trying to say is: A friend kind of stepped into that role [of making my life better], and I really didn’t see it coming,” Charlize said in the interview. “Sean and I have known each other for 18 years. We were just really good friends. And it’s been slow going because you are aware that you could screw that up and lose it. We had to think about it. But at the end of the day, it was somewhat effortless. It just kind of naturally happened, and before I knew it, I was in something that was making my life better — the people who really love me can see the effect it has had on me.”
Penn was previously married to pop superstar Madonna from 1985 to 1989. He was also married to actress Robin Wright from 1996 to 2010. Penn and Robin Wright have two adult children together. Theron, on the other hand, was previously in a nine-year relationship with actor Stuart Townshend. The relationship ended in 2010.
