A few days ago, I was just sitting around idly, wondering who Charlize Theron was dating. I think my wondering began when I saw some recent bitchface photos of her, and I was thinking that Charlize might be trying to pull an Uma Thurman, and only date rich, powerful, successful businessmen at this point. Turns out, Charlize is no Uma. According to Life & Style’s sources, Charlize is now coupled up with a 45-year-old model/actor named Eric Thal. These are a few of the photos we have of him:

He’s kind of cute. After the Irish hotness that was Stuart Townsend, I was kind of hoping for another really gorgeous hookup, but apparently not. Life & Style’s source – who is identified as a friend of Eric’s – claims that Eric and Charlie “have a lot in common. He’s a farmer who grows all his own vegetables, and Charlize grew up on a farm in South Africa. The two like to escape Hollywood and go to his farm in upstate New York.” Well… he sounds nice and low-key. Maybe that’s what she likes.

  6. brin says:

    @julie….lol….Oscar curse?!

  7. SuperSleuth says:

    She’s a beautiful woman and a wonderful actress. She’s a great example of success after overcoming a traumatic and tragic event earlier on in life.

  8. Eileen says:

    She’s at a place where she can take a break and do what she wants and when she’s ready to get back into it, the industry will be waiting.
    I know she’s filming two movies right now due out in 2013.

  9. Mia says:

    Eric looked better when he was younger. I’d still do him. Had a huge crush on him when he did the Wedding with Halle & Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

  10. cprincess says:

    I love her-ever since I saw the pic of her smoking pot through an apple bong!
    Shes a great actress as well and seems really cool…

  11. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Not sure about this guy for her. I love her tho, she’s a great actress!

  12. hstl1 says:

    He is a model? I don’t see that at all.

  13. skibunny says:

    Great actress and incredibly beautiful.

  14. buckley says:

    Gorgeous! and she seems nice.
    Would love to smoke a doob with her…:)

  15. Ferguson. says:

    Oh, she’s so beautiful… and I’d do him, but considering he’s a model… not so hot.

  16. Anonymous says:

    Oh man…I loved him in A Stranger Among Us! He’s adorable.

  17. archiepelago says:

    Hate to be the one to say it but she’s actually not that nice in person (well at least she wasn’t the night I worked with her). She was very condescending in interview about the fact she used to be a model and made some really snide comments about models who want to act (which was shocking since that’s how she got her start). She basically dissed her entire body of work before Monster (and her Oscar) and came off a little Katherine Heigl-ish. Maybe it was just a bad day but I came away with the impression that she is insecure and ungrateful and it sucks because I admire her work.

  18. Mistral says:

    He’s cute. And the farming thing sounds cool.

  19. kim says:

    She should just forget all this film rubbish and move to that farm for good. He sounds like the right guy.

  21. anonymous says:

    If she’s with this guy why does she always look pissed off and mad at the world I thought she needed to get laid but I guess she needs more than that. Maybe she misses the handsome Stewart!!

  22. Anti-icon says:

    She’s a class act who had a rather traumatic childhood event that makes her anti-drama in her personal life. I think she’s gorgeous, talented (she was an accomplished ballet dancer before being an actress, which is why she disses models, because, well, they don’t have any talent, do they?)

  23. Rocky says:

    Your ideas are awesome. Your blog site, not so a great deal. I do not would like to disrespect you, just hear me out. Include somewhat anything right here. What youre expressing is really crucial itd be a shame if persons missed it because they were bored to death. May be a video clip or perhaps a website link to a thing as effective since the subject matter. Only a suggestion.

  24. Dane Little says:

    I think she’s pretty and pretty cool.I wish her all the luck and happiness life can bring her. Takecare,Dane
