Charlize Theron & Seth MacFarlane have ‘a new relationship brewing’

Here are some new photos of Charlize Theron out in Beverly Hills with her son Jackson over the weekend. Jackson got a haircut! Charlize took him to the salon and he sat on her lap as he got a trim. Because mother and son both love a close crop, apparently. Speaking of Charlize’s hair – how righteous does it look these days? It just keeps looking better and better, right? I thought the high point was going to be the brunette fauxhawk, but I like her hair even more in these photos. Charlize just has the face and the attitude to pull off really short hair. She rocks it!!

Meanwhile, there are still lots of rumors about Charlize and Seth MacFarlane. I don’t get it. Apparently, Seth is no longer with Emilia Clarke (the Khaleesi from Game of Thrones) and he and Charlize are circling each other. Page Six seems to have started the rumor last week, and now there’s this:

Could this year’s Academy Awards have minted more than mere Oscar gold? There’s a lot of chatter coming from Hollywood that a new romance may have been ignited, thanks to a connection made at this year’s awards ceremony and the rehearsals leading up to it.

Translation: Oscar winner Charlize Theron and host Seth MacFarlane apparently really clicked while prepping for Sunday’s big show. Along with dancing in MacFarlane’s opening musical number, Theron also pre-taped one of the reaction shots for his much-discussed “We Saw Your Boobs” bit, spoofing famous actresses’ topless or nude scenes in their films.

According to folks close to Theron, the South African native thinks MacFarlane is funny, cute and charming.

“Charlize finds Seth to be a great guy who not only makes her laugh but has so much on the ball,” said a longtime Hollywood insider who has worked with Theron for years.

Reportedly, the duo not only hung out all night after the Oscars but are planning to see each other again. “This is early, but I see a new relationship brewing,” added a second source who attended MacFarlane’s own post-awards bash Sunday.

The timing of all this could work. MacFarlane isn’t dating anyone special, and Theron has been single since she and longtime beau Stuart Townsend ended their nine-year relationship last year.

[From the Chicago Sun-Times]

“MacFarlane isn’t dating anyone special” – that’s harsh for poor Emilia Clarke, who was still with Seth back in January. As for Charlize… I guess she isn’t banging Alexander Skarsgard. I can’t say that upsets me, as I was one of the few who wasn’t into that pairing at all. Charlize is also going to be directed by Seth in his new live-action movie, A Million Ways to Die In the West. So, will she be bangin’ her director? Eh, why not? Apparently they’re both single.

    The Khaleesi can do better anyways!

    • GoodCapon says:

      Did she and Seth even legit dated?

      I’m dying to hear Iain Glen say “Khaleesi” in his own sexy voice :D I can’t wait for Season 3!

      • allons -y alonso says:

        I can’t wait for GOT season 3. I love the Khaleesi plot line but I love to hate Joffrey more.

    • Elizabeth says:

      I find her to be so stunningly beautiful but oddly much more so with her white hair + eyebrows hahaha

      All hail the Khaleesi!!!

      • Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

        Looooove the Khaleesi! What an awesome character, and Emilia Clarke is stunning.

        She is far and away too good for Peter Brady Faced MacFarlane.

  2. Jen says:

    That dress with the rope print is adorable. Anybody got an ID on the designer? Hopehopehope it’s GAP or something I can afford…

    • Elizabeth says:

      One thing that really annoys me about dresses like that is how they always choose to ruin the lines of it by adding bulky pockets…

    • Azurea says:

      Love that dress! I ‘m gonna make one like it.

      • Claudia says:

        Make one? Oooh tell me your secret! Are you a seamstress/designer/hobbyist? I’ve always been super impressed by people who make their own clothes. I have a friend who gets inspired by polyvore and makes her own dresses.

    • emmie_a says:

      I’ll give you the dress but I want those sandals!

    • Al says:

      Peter Brady! Thankyou!!! I was trying to figure out who he reminded me of when I was watching the Oscars. It was really bugging me!

  3. Oldest b alive says:

    The answer is quit simple really. She is thirsty. Plus am I the only one feeling that she is everywhere since last year. I hate it when the push celebs in my face EVERYDAY!! I am sick of seeing and hearing about her man.

    • i'm french don't kill me says:

      Jessica Chastain or Hathaway or Lawrence are everywhere since last year:we can’t say Theron is overexposed

      • Source says:

        Those ladies = One word Oscars. Be has it may that it is now a beauty/popularity/fashion contest. CT is way too in my face these days. Even for the Oscars there was more of her why?! It’s fan that you are a fan but lets be real here. She is overexposed.

      • Oldest b alive says:

        What Source said, just wanted to had she is overexposed or is it she is showcasing too much.

      • StaCat1 says:

        it’s’s all about promoting and for women -SADLY- about fashion/beauty contests. This is a big part of their job-until fundamental attitudes change (which I don’t foresee in my lifetime). Evolution takes time.

    • V4Real says:

      @oldest b; overexposed would be Kim Kardashian, not Charlize. At least Charlize is an oscar winning actress with real talent. The only talent Kim have is the talent of staying popular for no apparent reason.

      BTW I have no problem with her dating Seth; if this rings true. As long as they are good to each other, who cares who she dates.

      • Oldest b alive says:

        I said nothing about KK please don’t I blocked those people out. She is overexposed but whatever, we differ in opinion that is fine but don’t tell me she isn’t overexposed when it obvious that there is too much about her circling around. Later today there will be a post about her parking her car. Or saying something or hooking up with some guy. As for talent there are far better in her peers that outshine none of her recent works says much.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Everything V4Real said.

        As far as her peers doing much better work? Have you even SEEN Young Adult? One of the best female acting performaces of the past 10 years IMO. If you want to say she’s overexposed, fine (I disagree but wh’evs) but when you start questioning Ms Theron’s talent, well you lose a lot of cred, frankly.

      • Oldest b alive says:

        @Kitten but when you start questioning Ms Theron’s talent, well you lose a lot of cred, frankly.

        Really according to you. I saw YA and YAWN!!! drinking from a cola bottle, acting cold and bitchy is CT in real life no award needed. You’re a fan and her PR is working because fan or not when someone blows they blow. Monster is her best work. Everything after that is just too force like her new over exposed life.

      • Diana says:

        Every single word TheOriginalKitten said.

      • karmasabiatch! says:

        I guess the B stands for “biatch”, right Oldest B?

        Cosign on everything OKitt said, take a valium B, huh?

    • I'm Gonna Leave Soon says:

      I think she is everywhere, ever since the baby. I mean do photogs stand around outside of hair salons waiting for celebs to bring their children in? Seems odd.

      Also this time last year is when the Alex rumours started, isn’t it? So can we expect someone else next year?

      Who to pick??

  4. GossipG says:

    little man is to yummy

  5. T.Fanty says:

    Going out with Seth MacFarlane might be the one thing that could kill my girl crush on Charlize.

  6. Sara says:

    Seth is gross and Family Guy is trash. Good luck with this misogynistic ahole Charlize.

  7. Kaye says:

    Two words, Charlize: Amanda Bynes!
    Ewwwwww. Just, ewwww.

  8. lucy2 says:

    Ew I hope that’s not true. That guy bugs me so bad! And she needs to find someone super hot.

  9. Granger says:

    That little boy is ADORABLE! And I love Charlize. She’s my woman.

  10. i'm french don't kill me says:

    why did she never photographed with her rumored boyfriends? even a simple pic with her rumored boyfriend coming to her home or her coming to his home!

    • andy says:

      I rarely see stars photographed with significant others. Unless they are famewhores, they seem to be able to avoid the paps.

      The paps are more interested in following around the Kardashians, Lohans, Rimes and other trash than real celebs. Stars should be thankful for these people.

      • i'm french don't kill me says:

        since her break-up with Towsend,she only had some rumored boyfriends (True Blood’s guy,Reynolds…)without a clue that she really was with them.
        Here she must work with McFarlane so it’s probably only a relation of work

      • Liv says:

        She dated Ryan Reynolds but there never was a picture of them. Because of this I always find it funny when people think stars couldn’t live a pretty normal life. I mean Charlize also gets papped, I guess it’s unavoidably if you live in Los Angeles. But it’s not like we know about her dating life if she doesn’t want to. We just know about MacFarlane because of the Oscars.

  11. cr says:

    I don’t think she was ever banging Alex.

    But I can see her liking Seth, I think his sense of humor would attract her. But I do get a douche vibe from him. So both she and Emilia can do better.

    • Oldest b alive says:

      I think they did bang but for like a brief moment. Don’t think Skarsgard wanted something serious though. But I wonder if SM was still dating EC and then upgrade to CT you know. I am sure the whole story is not told yet where is the real gossip. *laughs evilly away*

  12. lady mary. says:

    God!what a woman ,oh plzz she can do way better than that Dancing puppet Macfarlane ,why is it so hard to get her with Skassgard!but i doubt its true ,Charlize looks like the type that would beat the shit out of the Farlane type of misogynist dudes

  13. Mom2two says:

    Well Charlize and Emilia could do better. I kind of think Emilia was with him for the press. She should have stuck with her co-star Richard Madden (not nearly famous or as rich as Seth, but at least he doesn’t scream douche to me)…supposedly those two were an item during season 1 of GoT. As for Seth, as beautiful as Emilia is, being linked with Charlize would be a feather in his cap. At least she is his age.

  14. lisa2 says:

    LOL that woman does not know how to cut a black child’s hair. YOU need clippers honey.

    He is adorable.

    • Mecca says:

      I was wondering about that too, I am a pale ginger w/ curls and I only let people who know curly hair cut mine, I would think tight curls is a whole special thing.

  15. Barrett says:

    Is Seth a good amount shorter? I am imagining her fierce and statuesque, next to him a Peter Brady look alike. Won’t last.

  16. Meow Mix says:

    Are these old photos because the message board outside the salon says Happy Holidays?

  17. mimi says:

    These pics are so adorable! Charlize and her son are the cutest pair ever! Look at those cheeks! And her holding him in her lap as he gets his haircut. She’s a doll.

    Gossip mags are fishing with those Seth rumors. Can’t Charlize and a guy be friendly without these rumors? After all they are doing a movie together and Charlize is the kind of gal who gets along with women and men. The media has been
    desperate to link her with somebody ever since she broke up with Stuart Tonwsend. Fact is, there hasn’t been any proof at all that she ‘s dated someone since him. I love that she’s so private and focusing on being a mother.

    Now back to those pics, cutest mother/son duo ever!

    • Source says:

      Haha that’s why it says source close to CT is saying because she is so private. Sure!!I t’s always source close to CT saying isn’t it.

      • cr says:

        I noticed that as well, it’s her ‘sources’ that are talking about the Seth relationship. As they did a year ago concerning the the relationship with Skarsgard.
        It’s sort of odd.

      • jinni says:

        @cr: I’m not suprised that most of the sources seem to come from her people. Contrary to the popluar belief on this site, I’ve always seen her as overbearing in her pursuit of men. Not to say she must be some delicate, damsal that waits to be rescued by a man, just that ever since seeing her behavior with Fassbender, she seem overly aggressive.

      • cr says:

        @jinni: that’s it though. I have no problem with her not sitting back and waiting for something to happen but with Alex and now Seth it just seems weird, especially for someone like Charlize, who’s a successful actress, has her own life, etc. Her ‘sources’ make her sound like teenager sometimes. It’s rather demeaning.

        And even if there is a PR element to this relationship (as there may have been with Alex as well), is this really the best way to go about it.

  18. bea says:

    I guess I’m the only one who likes Seth M! The guy is hilarious, super talented, rich and cute. He is too short tho….

    • Maria_Spain says:

      you are not alone ;) I like him too, funny great voice and yeap… rich :p

    • Sharon says:

      Word. I Love him !! I don’t get the hate at all !
      Family Guy is awesome ! And if they are dating – i wish them nothing but the best :)
      Haters can just keep hating. Yawn.

    • Nina W says:

      I don’t think 5′ 10″ is too short but then again, I’m only 5′ 4″.

  19. Bijlee says:

    I may be the only one who doesn’t get Charlize Theron. I’ve watched her interviews and the woman just comes off like a ditz and kind of mean in real life. I don’t get why people adore her and find her so stunning. She’s beautiful yes, but people treat her like some goddess or something. What did she do to warrant all this adoration? She really hasn’t been in very many successful movies lately. She looks so much like pink now too with the short hair.

    • Oldest b alive says:

      You’re not the only one add me to the list. I don’t get the excitement about her either. She was horrid in Aeon Flux, Hancock I just couldn’t relate to her story she came off cold which is how I see her in real life and SWHM jesus was she f*** horrible, she overacted that to death. I don’t get the appeal but I guess women find her attractive because that what the world wants us to be like Tall, blonde in movies.

    • epiphany says:

      No, you’re not alone. She’s pretty, but no prettier than some random girls you see on the street. Hollywood always takes an average woman, and shoves them down our throats as gorgeous, when actually, they’re not, unless they were done up to the nines by a makeup artist and stylist – in which case, almost anyone of us could be considered gorgeous.

    • bluhare says:

      I feel the same way about Jennifer Lawrence. Just don’t get all the fuss. So totally understand!

      • Bijlee says:

        Hmm that’s weird the fuss about JLaw is VERY much the same. These two have good agents and pr teams because this site is not the only site I’ve been too where people rave and rave and rave about both of them. I don’t like Charlize. She seems really stuck up and snobbish. Her desperation with fassbender was all kinds of crazy and her constant praise for the guy…like people praise him, but Theron goes overboard.

    • andrea says:

      No, you’re not the only one. And from what I’ve read in the non-PR channels, she can be quite the stone-cold bitch. It’s funny how that aspect of her personality is hardly ever brought to the light. Must be something about her face and the American drawl she’s adopted that make people just assume she’s such a sweetheart.

      I do, however, give her props for adopting her son. She comes from one of the predominantly racist places in SA so I think it’s interesting that she adopted a baby who’s not white. But he looks happy and healthy, so I think that’s great for both of them.

    • mercy says:

      She won an Oscar — and actually deserved it. That role in Monster was a godsend for her. Without it, she might have been stereotyped because of her looks or relegated to romcom world, like K. Heigl, who she reminds me times. But she got a great part and ran with it, so props to her.

      She has beautiful eyes, but I don’t find anything else striking about her face. She’s coventionally pretty.

      I used to really like her personality, but lately she seems to be trying too hard to be cool, which is kind of a turn off.

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      I agree with all of the above ^ comments.

  20. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Looks like Im behind…why did she and Stuart break it off? After 9 years?? Sheesh.

    ETA: Seems like they just grew apart…Bummer.

  21. kasxyz says:

    please charlize…take jackson to a black barber!!! He needs clippers, not scissors! He also needs a line up…If you are going to adopt a child outside of your race please do research on how to take care of their hair…

  22. Sunnyjyl says:

    If this is true they totally punked me. I thought her reaction to his song was sincere. I figured she was going to rip him a new one after the show, not hook up. Blech.

    • Rose says:

      The “reactions” were pretaped. That’s why Charlize, Jennifer Lawrence, and Naomi Watts were all wearing different dresses from what they came in with. Charlize wore a white strapless dress for the red carpet, a cream dress for the dance number, and a black halter dress for the “reaction” shot.

  23. anonymousfan says:

    You’re kidding right? That song reaction was a pre -taped joke and I can’t believe a week later anyone is still offended or thinking about it.Second, Seth only likes girls in their early 20′s and I am sure Charlize is too smart and mature for that windbag.Any time they’re spending together is for that western they’re doing.I bet her character is a

    @kasxyz Girl you are right.These white women need a class in taking care of black hair.If you’re gonna adopt them, then know how to take care of them.Drive down to Compton if you have to or ask Will Smith who they go to with his sons..Jeez.

    • Nina W says:

      He looks loved and well cared for, it’s hardly the worst thing ever that she didn’t use clippers on his hair.

  24. hoya_chick says:

    Eww no Charlize! You are my girl crush and this would just ruin it for me. You are way too good for him. I find Seth to be gross. Not funny. And certainly not good looking. I think he thinks he is both of those things which makes him even more unappealing. He seems so smarmy.

    Can we talk about how adorable baby Jackson is!! That little man is so cute I cannot stand it.

  25. RHONYC says:

    gahhh…is it wrong that i wanna squeeze his cutie-cute cheeks?! :-D

  26. Itsa Reallyme says:

    I know someone that has worked with her and apparently she is NOT a nice person.

    • Bijlee says:

      I get that vibe from her interviews. There was an Oscar roundtable with viola and I just couldn’t with Charlize. The way she was acting with fassbender made me uncomfortable and it was just weird. She struck me as so phony and jc how does she have like the Natalie portman vocal fry voice thing? She sounds like a smoker. I loved her in arrested development and her films like the valley of Elah….might joe young (yeah yeah I loved that movie get over it), but her real life persona is so off putting.

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      I can buy it. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if she is an a’hole in r/l. Plus she is friends with Handler and that says a lot right there.

  27. Starlight says:

    Just wait until she grows her hair. It will be a vengeance of beauty. I think she and Seth (what kind of name is that? Reminds me of Star Wars) are intellectually compatible.

  28. Claudia says:

    I don’t mind this pairing. I actually like Seth, I think he’s funny and funny looking ;) (in a good way).

    As for Charlize, I can’t explain the adoration for her either– I just know that I love her, and think she’s badass. Why? I have no idea. She just screams empowered to me, and super confident. I find that attractive.

  29. Gemini08 says:

    I had no idea he and Emilia Clarke were dating- I actually question the validity of that rumor. As for Seth and Charlize…eh…

  30. annaloo. says:

    Charlize, my girl. You need to find a barber with clippers for him! That woman is cutting his hair all sorts of wrong!

  31. bcgirl says:

    my 2 least favorites hooked up! That would be gold.
    She’s good friends with C-Handler too, says a lot about her, doesn’t it. Oh, this is awesome news.
    and what a surprise that Seth couldn’t hang onto The Khaleesi. hahahahaha!

  32. Fue McCormick says:

    Why all the Seth McFarlane hate? This is the only gossip site I go to so I don’t know much about Seth but he’s handsome, smart, funny, can sing, and his family (Dad and sister) seem nice. What gives??

  33. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Although I think Charlize looks great with short hair, I’m NOT a fan of the Tintin styling. I hate it.

  34. mainstream says:

    Why would the mother of a black child want to go out with a racist and misogynist? I’ve always been a big fan of Charlize but if this is true she’s lost me.

  35. muppet_barbershop says:

    This is some hot sheeit, actually, and I hope it is true. What a cool theoretical pair. Tasty as heck. And Jackson is sooo beautiful. Can you imagine latte-pitstop pics of these three? <3

    @mainstream, I don’t think McFarlane is anything-phobic. I think he is overall disrespectful and takes things too far at times. Also, because being of color is more visible than being white, people who do what he does and say :I slam everyone, leave me alone" are automatically kinda wrong. But I don’t worry about him actually being rude or dangerous to Jackson, or any individual person of color. He’s opportunist and out of line; it doesn’t make him a true bigot, though.

    • mainstream says:

      People of colour and women have been slammed enough by white men through out history. Saying “I slam everyone” doesn’t gives him carte blanche to perpetuate the cycle.

  36. FrenchT says:

    Seth does not want a baby. esp that one. yuuuuup.

  37. Meadowlark says:

    Uhhh, pretty sure Seth M is openly gay…? Is this not a known thing?

    • Rose says:

      He’s an open serial dater of women half his age. I guess you could make an arguement that they’re his beards though if you wanted to. I’m going with man-whore though.

  38. daily gloss says:

    I don’t think its true I think its a work related relationship.I never thought him and emilia were together like that especially after the three days of pap pics.I think EW asked him about her I can’t remember what he said but u can go read it. I really don’t think he’s a bad guy but he really needs to stop dating starlets and grow up for a man saying he wants to get married he’s not going in the right direction.

  39. B says:

    Oh wow. I love Charlize, she is gorgeous, but I initially thought that profile pic was the ‘Biebs!!

  40. Rose says:

    @Everyone criticizing her for not using clippers on her son’s hair: Maybe they tried them and the sound scared him? He’s what, 2? Some toddlers are terrified of having their hair cut in any manner whatsoever, so maybe they went with the least traumatic option? It’s more important that he’s calm and happy than whether or not his hair is even.
