Sean Penn and Charlize Theron have only been dating for two months, but sources close to the couple are beginning to wonder if Sean privately popped the question this week.

Sean Penn, Charlize Theron Engaged?

People magazine reports that a friend of the famous pair denies that Sean and Charlize are engaged, but the insider also added that she "wouldn’t be surprised" to see them walk down the aisle soon.

So which is it? Sounds like either Sean or Charlize had their publicist deny the rumors so that they can hitched without being swarmed by paparazzi, but the PR guy hinted at a future engagement so that People doesn’t look stupid when the ceremony happens soon.

Or, maybe they’re really not engaged and we’re just spouting ridiculous theories.


Either way, we think Charlize should run for the hills. Sean’s a great actor, but this would be his third marriage and he’s got a bad reputation for his irrational, hotheaded behavior. Plus, after his last divorce, Sean publicly declared that "marriage is a fraud."

Doesn’t really sound like husband material to us, Charlize. And do you really want Madonna’s sloppy seconds? Gross.

We think Charlize can do better, but her mismatched pairing would certainly put her in good company. Check out some other celebrity couples that defy explanation below:
