  • Sean Penn and Charlize Theron's relationship is an inspiring story with a sad ending.

    The 55-year-old actor and the 40-year-old actress were longtime friends and then their bond grew even bigger when they started dating in December 2013. A year later, the inseparable couple were secretly engaged and their romance seemed to be headed towards marriage. It even got to a point where Penn was close with Theron's son while the latter developed a great bond with the former's daughter.

    Unfortunately, things didn't work out and the couple decided that it was time to end their romance. "In my honesty about wanting to have more kids, there was an understanding that a relationship had to go somewhere before it was going to be — what you hope for, which ultimately did not happen," Theron reflected about their failed 18-month relationship.
