“About six months ago, they did a shoot together. So they have spent time together,” a source dished to PEOPLE.
“But anything that may have happened beyond that remains to be seen.”
On Jan. 20, the U.K.’s Sun newspaper claimed that Pitt and Theron had struck up a romance over Christmas. Neither star has commented.
As for the Sun‘s claim that Theron’s ex, Sean Penn, played any role in introducing them: “That couldn’t be more false. Not in the slightest,” the source adds.
Pitt has kept a low profile in dating life since his split from Angelina Jolie in Sept. 2017.
He was linked to MIT professor Neri Oxman in mid 2018, though the high-profile architect later denied any romance between the two.
Pitt has been staying busy since his split, with several acting and producing projects in the work. He most recently wrapped filming alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which takes place in Los Angeles during the Mason family murders era.
He also executive produced If Beale Street Could Talk through his Plan B company and recently attended a private screening of the Oscar hopeful.
