Ben Affleck & Charlize Theron Romance Rumors: Are These Two Pairing Up?

Rumors that Ben Affleck and Charlize Theron are entering into a romance is getting some attention. Affleck, who still lives with his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, is said to be in a “secret romance” with Theron, who split from Sean Penn last July.

Thanks to Gossip Cop, the Affleck-Theron rumor is being cleared up. The surveillance news site of celebrity tabloid stories states that an OK! magazine report is totally false about these two getting together.

Affleck and Theron aren’t in a “shocking” and “secret romance,” as the magazine implies. Gossip Cop reports that it can exclusively clear the air on that. They were informed that the article was based on “sensationalism and fabrication.”

The report states that Ben and Charlize finally got together after flirting for an extended period of time.

“Sixteen years after their first flirtation, Ben Affleck and Charlize Theron are finally able to see where their incredible chemistry will lead them,” the report reads.

It went on to say that the movie stars “bonded” on the set of the 2000 movie Reindeer Games, and it’s said “the idea that they might get together was strictly fantasy … until now, that is.”

“Simultaneously single at last, the A-list duo recently reconnected at a post-Oscars party,” the magazine’s report added, “and now they’re poised to embark on a secret romance.”

OK! painted a romantic picture of Affleck and Theron being an official couple and mentioned in its piece that a “source” spilled that they “could finally flirt freely” on Oscar night but “kept their exchange outwardly low-key” because Jennifer Garner was also at the awards ceremony.

The article brought others into the mix by stating that friends in their social circle speculated on Oscars night about “when and how a relationship will develop.”

Continuing on about the “secret romance” between Ben Affleck and Charlize Theron, OK!’s insider added that neither Affleck nor Theron “wants a relationship to be made public… It’ll be their little secret as long as possible.”

Gossip Cop noted in its report bust that the tabloid obtained a single picture of Affleck and Theron both exiting the Vanity Fair Oscars bash at the same time; they were surrounded by other people and walking together. It’s a bit of a stretch when the magazine suggested Affleck “checked her out.”

No other images of Ben and Charlize together have been seen.

A source close to Ben Affleck told Gossip Cop that the supposed romance is “so incorrect.”

In other news revolving around Affleck, he and Garner reportedly spent Easter together with their three young children, People reports.

They attended Sunday Church services in L.A.

Some moving trucks was also spotted in front of their $45 million Pacific Palisades home on Monday. Some rugs and other belongings were removed from them. Garner was in workout attire overseeing everything. Some reports made it to seem someone was moving out, but it had to do with Garner possibly redecorating their home.

Some Hollywood stars newly single usually make for good tabloid fodder. The magazines come up with these stories of celebrities who’ve been recently divorced or broken up coming together as a couple. It’s similar to Katie Holmes being linked with Jamie Foxx because the two are single and great friends. Several reports have dispelled rumors that they’re engaged, however.
