Most people won’t remember this, but in 2012 and 2013, there were a lot of rumors there Charlize Theron and Alexander Skarsgard were possibly hooking up – or even dating – on the downlow. There were never any photos of them together and they never even walked a red carpet together, but sources all around the world insisted that they were quietly happening. Reportedly, Alex even visited Charlize on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road while she was filming in Namibia. I still don’t know if all of that was just a fever dream cooked up by coked up tabloid writers or what. But it looks like we’re going to get another round of it:
In the forthcoming political comedy “Flarsky,” Charlize Theron plays Seth Rogen’s dream girl. But a new report from Life&Style claims their co-star, Alexander Skarsgard, is the one pursuing Charlize in real-life — and if the tab’s claims are true, Charlize is all about it.
The mag’s source says the two have been “flirting on set” in a follow-up to their rumored 2012 relationship. “They’re keeping it as private as they can, but it’s hard to hide. They are both thrilled that this romance is back on,” says the Life&Style insider. “Charlize is a woman who knows what she wants and just goes for it. She did it with Alexander back then, and now she’s done it again.”
“Charlize cusses and has a wicked sense of humor, which he loves,” the source adds. “Alexander is a serious guy, a deep thinker, and she loves that. He’s well-read, loves the classics and is a movie buff just like her.” Charlize has been single since she and Sean Penn called it quits in 2015, according to the Daily Mail. Alex and Alexa Chung split last summer.
I’m not really “into” this couple aesthetically, for what it’s worth. I like it when a boyfriend and girlfriend look really different physically. Charlize and Alex just look too much alike – two blonde giants with praying mantis limbs. Don’t get me wrong, I find both of them attractive – he’s the Viking and she’s the beautiful ice queen. But not together. Plus, I feel like Alex is still in the middle of something with Alexa Chung? Also: Gossip Cop said this was BS, but they also pointed out that filming on Flarsky ended in January, so it’s not like Charlize and Alex are currently working together. Huh.
