Will Charlize Theron have to choose between Alex Skarsgard & Keanu Reeves?

Charlize Theron is a new mother. You’d think that because she’s a single mom now (“Sisters are doing it for themselves,” as Jon Hamm would say), she would go The Sandra Bullock Route and allow her image to be remade into a family-friendly vision of motherly love. But Charlize is not Sandra Bullock. Charlize likes boys, and boys like Charlize. So while we’re hearing a little bit about Charlize’s son Jackson, we’re hearing even more about Charlize’s potential boyfriends. Personally, I think Charlize would LOVE a ride on the Fassbender train – but I don’t think he’s into it. He doesn’t go for tall blondes. Fortunately, there’s one Viking who does like lithe blondes, and that’s Alexander Skarsgard. Alex and Charlize had a much-rumored rendezvous back in early March – they were said to be cuddled up and “together” at a bar. Now Us Weekly claims that they went on a “second date”:

Charlize Theron, who adopted son Jackson in March, went on a second date with Alexander Skarsgard on April 6 at West Hollywood’s Soho House. Though the duo – who hung out March 3 at the area’s Gym Sports bar – were with a group, “she rested her head on his shoulder and they looked very couple-y,” says an onlooker. Explains a Theron source, “It isn’t serious. And no, he has not met the baby!”

[From Us Weekly, print edition]

All I heard there was “casual sex”. Is that what this is – something casual, something not at all serious because Alex doesn’t want to get serious with a single mother and Charlize doesn’t want to get serious with a Viking? If it’s just physical… sure. I find their brother-sister appearances creepy though.

But that’s not the only man Charlize might have coming around. In Touch Weekly (yeah) claims that Charlize and Keanu Reeves have been spending more time together too. Inevitably, the tabloids really want Sad Keanu and Charlize to happen – there were lots of rumors about them right after Charlize and Stuart Townsend broke up.

First comes love and marriage, then the baby carriage? Not for Charlize Theron. Now that she’s a single mom to adopted son Jackson, Charlize is looking for a baby daddy. And the 36-year-old actress has her sights set on her longtime friend — and rumored former beau — Keanu Reeves!

A pal says the Sweet November co-stars have gotten closer since Charlize brought home Jackson and friends think a rekindled romance is inevitable. “They were friends with benefits in the past,” the friend says, “but now it’s something more.”

So is Keanu, 47, dad material? “He babysits and brings toys when he visits Charlize and Jackson,” the friend reports. “He even built the crib and changes diapers!” Sounds like a keeper!

[From In Touch Weekly]

“He babysits and brings toys when he visits Charlize and Jackson…” I just don’t buy it. I don’t buy this dynamic with them at all. If Charlize and Keanu are hanging out, I think they’re just drinking beers and watching the game, you know?

    Not a bad position to be in!

    • atlantapug says:

      Not at all…

      Personally, I would ride the Alex train while it’s hot!

      Keanu will obviously still be around when the train stops! lol

  2. marie says:

    I think she needs to get with someone else entirely.

  3. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    I personally don’t think that Keanu Reeves has ever recovered from the death of his baby daughter. And even though I absolutely loved Charlize and Stewart Townsend, I think she and Keanu have a natural, easy chemistry.

    Didn’t they also do “The Devil’s Advocate” together (didn’t she play his wife?).

    • Nance says:

      Also Sweet November.

    • Liv says:

      Yeah, they were both starring in The Devil’s Advocate.

      I’d take Keanu Reeves anytime over Skarsgaard. So, they were friends with benefits, are they kidding us? Somehow I can’t picture them as a couple..

    • Darlene says:

      Agreed. And then soon after, the girl who was his girlfriend and the mother of his daughter also died. He hasn’t had an easy personal life. I hope he and Charlize fall in love and raise that baby together. He seems really stable and about as “normal” as someone can be in the Hollywood game. I wish them the best.

      • Kate says:

        Charlize and Keanu- that would be perfect! I a fan of Keanu for years and I would love to see him finally totally happy:)

    • Carolyn says:

      Team Keanu. I don’t care if his acting is one-dimensional. He and Charlize make a good couple, have chemistry like plenty of people on here have already said. But then I’ve been wrong before…am still hoping for a Ryan/Sandy reunion.

  4. Dani says:

    She was with Alex this weekend too there’s video of them leaving Chateau Marmont

    She has been friends with Keanu for a loooong time

    • rufustfirefly says:

      Yep, I saw that video as well. I say good for them! I hope they do get together. I think they make a gorgeous couple.

      @Gwen, I agree. Alex is not a stranger to dating a woman with children, so I have no doubts he’d be perfectly ok with Jackson. I think he’d be so good with kids too. Just the thought of him with the little girl from What Maisie Knew was enough to melt your heart into a puddle of goo!

      I don’t know why people keep insisting that Alex has a “type” of woman when it comes to hair color. He’s dated one blonde, now maybe two, and several brunettes. The only type I don’t know of is a red-head.

    • Izzy says:

      Is there a link to the video?

    • Mirella says:

      Is there video of them leaving together? I only saw one of him in a car with a brunette girl.

      • Shannon says:

        i think the video is on pop sugar or something. the driver is brunette, but she’s been seen in pics with charlize (she’s her production bff or something) but alex is talking to a blonde ducking on the floor of the backseat, who is thought to be charlize, which makes sense seeing as the only reason to hide in the back would be if that person was famous. if she wasn’t charlize (or famous for that matter), why hide?

        i think charlize & alex would be great together. keanu is too sad.

  5. Gwen says:

    I don’t think Alex would have a problem with the baby – he had a long time relationship with a single mom back home. I do hope – for the sake of the baby – that Charlize takes her time before introducing Jackson to a potential father-figure though. If she and Alex (or any other man) are just trying a relationship out for size (he he), I hope she waits. I don’t see how it can be much more that for fun at the moment given how much both of them are working.

    I’d love her and Keanu as a couple. Loved the idea of them back when her and Stuart broke up.

    • cr says:

      Well, Jackson’s an infant, so it’s not like he’s going to really remember anyone at this point.

    • fabgrrl says:

      Her son is just a baby, practically a newborn. His Mom is his entire world right now. He isn’t going to take the slightest notice of anybody else.

      • Gwen says:

        Wasn’t he around 4 months when the news came out? That would make him around 6 months now. Personally I would think he needed stability the most – and Charlize too, given that she (per Lainey at least) has been waiting for this for a long time. So no, Jackson might not remember much later but what happens in his life now still has a big impact on him. But what do I know. I may just be sceptical because I don’t see them as a couple who would last in the long run..

  6. Jayna says:

    She is the most beautiful actress around. Angelina is stunning too, but her skinny body and toothpick legs are no match for Charlize’s gorgeous figure.

  7. lucy2 says:

    My guess is Alex is a fling and Keanu is just a good friend. But who knows.

  8. Agnes says:

    pick sad keanu!

  9. JM says:

    Alex or Keanu….Can’t she just have both?

  10. Kristen says:

    Charlize and Keanu seem like they would be perfect together… but it’s probably not happening / going to happen.

  11. rufustfirefly says:

    According to Gossip Cop, the piece about Keanu isn’t true. For whatever that is worth. Lol! http://www.gossipcop.com/charlize-theron-keanu-reeves-baby-daddy-dad-adopted-son-jackson/

  12. salamanca says:

    I think, she has some work done. She haven’t get more wight overall, but her face, cheeks-too puffy lately.

  13. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Charlize could date Seal as he likes blondes, however, Charlize might prefer dudes without nail polish.

    • DreamyK says:

      I’m actually more curious about whether or not she’s still a huge pot smoker. Firstly, because she has a baby to take care of and anesthetizing yourself is not conducive to bonding with your newly adopted child, and secondly, some men are just not into women that are (or soon will be) high.

      • Prim says:

        lol. Being photographed one time at a party hitting a bong doesn’t mean you’re a huge pot smoker.

    • Carolyn says:

      I thought this for 5 seconds too. I haven’t followed any of the stories on Seal/Heidi…Seal is absolutely rocking it on The Voice Australia. Even as he does wear nail poilsh 🙂

  14. Carona says:

    I like the idea of Charlize and Keanu better . Nothing against Alex my favorite on TB . I like the other pairing better. both are hot though

    • lila says:

      Carona? Ugh you’re that creepy Carona person from twitter who only tweets about Alex and pesters people for details about him. You are the definition of creepy fangirl, please get some help. OR get off the internet for a while.

  15. foozy says:

    difficult choice! i think she should go out with both!

  16. marybeth18 says:

    Keanu seems like the type of guy who has really strong friendships with women- he has been close with Sandra B. for 15+ years (when she was in hiding after the Jesse James scandal, he was seen coming and going from her house) and when Charlize broke up with Stuart Townsend, there were photos of Keanu and Charlize hugging goodbye after dinner. I could be wrong, but the video of that goodbye looked like two platonic friends (granted, in Hollywood everyone kisses hello and goodbye, so it was more tactile that you or I might be with an opposite sex friend).

    • Carona says:

      At least Keanu kissed her and hugged in public . Alex is different story . When he was with Kate much as they were seen together he never admitted to dating her or any of the other women . THe recent video on you tube threw me for a loop with Charlize friend driving his car we all think anyway ,he in the front next to her producer friend Beth Kono who was driving , Charlize ducking down in the backseat is strange behavior . This footage is on youtube them leaving Chateau Marmont hotel

      • BB says:

        Strange? Sure. If you don’t want to be pursued by the paps, don’t to a place where they are all the time.
        Assume your choices If it”s Charlize who behaves so then she disappoints me, I thought that she(it) had more respect for herself.

      • Dani says:

        Carona? Ugh you’re that freaking creepy person on twitter who only tweets about Alex and pesters people for details about him. You are the definition if creepy fan girl get some help

      • Gigi says:

        Wow! I didnt know she had been linked to BOTH of these guys. Arent they both believed to be gay? I know theres rumors about all celebs but the stories about Keanu & Skarsgard being closetted are among the most intense. Maybe shes gay too and this are PR hookups?

      • Gwen says:


        Alex isn’t gay. He’s just Scandinavian – comfortable with his sexuality in a way that seems to bother (or confuse) some. Only in the mind of Ted is Alex gay. Seriously.

  17. Jayna says:

    I think Keanu is gay but has slept with women also.

  18. Gene Parmesan says:

    Keanu needs love in his life i say he should go for it

  19. Ari says:

    I view Keanu as asexual. which is probably why he looks so damn good, he aint messing around with all types of people and getting caught up in other peoples drama! I would love to see Charlize and him togehter but if it hasnt happened yet, I doubt it will. Alex is meh for her (cuz hes great for me! lol)

  20. Lafairy says:

    I think Keanu is a very good friend of her and Alex is just her flavor of the moment. She is a strong independant woman, she is perfectly able to dissociate love and fun and I respect that.

  21. donna says:

    How Keanu could spend many a time with Charlize if he is/was in China directing his debiut and plays the role in it? So don’t buy the rumors about him and Charlize.

    • Carona says:

      So it’s Alex then we all suspected in the first place . especially after they have been seen together monday at Chateau Marmont Hotel she was in the back seat hiding Alex was in the front seat her producer friend Beth Kono was driving what looks like Alex car Audi R8 video on you tube

      • donna says:

        Yes, this lady at the wheel looks like Beth Kono and it’s rather Alex’s car … hmmm, and at the back of the car is blond woman to whom Alex says something but this video is from Sunday night.

      • Carolyn says:

        I find the level to which you are discussing this disturbing (in a nice way). The majority of celeb stories/photos are PR planted….to be taken with a huge grain of salt. Not as gospel. None of us know anything really about these people’s lives.

  22. kristipistol says:

    I loved Sweet November!! If you ever look at the engagement/wedding photos in the paper, most of them resemble each other in a brother/sister way.

  23. Isabel says:

    I vote for Alex and Keanu together! (Sorry Charlize:P)

  24. Turd Fergussen says:

    Whoever gets to utter the sentence, “I’m having casual, hot sex with Alexander Skarsgard,” is one LUCKY BITCH.

    The end.

    • Isabel says:

      HEll yeah!

      To do list: Climb Mt.Skars so I can say these words once in my lifetime. After that I can die happily haha

  25. Anon says:

    I think she is capable of finding a man for herself, if she so desires. I find her acting style cold; regretted seeing her last film.

  26. skipper says:

    Alex always looks worn out to me.

    When I was 12, I was pretty determined that Keanu Reeves and I would end up together. I was sure of it and I watched Speed constantly! My plan was to become an actress simply so I could meet him on the set of a movie we would star in together – an Anne Frank biopic. Back of Charlize!

    • Shannon says:

      he works a lot of long nights, so that’s why he looks tired lately i think. he’s also had those bags under his eyes since he was a kid. he’s still hot, though. even hotter in person. pictures don’t do him justice.

    • Gwen says:

      Ha, ha – I had more of less the same plan 😀

  27. All these rumors says:

    All of a sudden there is so much rumours on Alex and Charlize dating. Poor Alex Is he aware of these rumours floating around?
    Charlize appears to be getting papped on daily basis on JJ since the Alex dating rumours started
    I preferred it when Alex was really quite and just working on his projects there was no sightings or rumors on him for months.

  28. jesstar says:

    I just love Keanu. He seems ao “Internal” which is good. I really dont like my guys yapping my ear off. Everything Ive heard about him is always positive too.

  29. mary says:

    i pick Keanu! i don’t like how Skarsgard treat his gf and i don’t want to see charlize looking miserable. Skarsgard is a downgrade for her 🙁 she deserve much better 🙂 plus…they look alike!it’s creepy :/

  30. Vivien says:

    They are probably fu*k….this is her nature. She is very pretty and talented but…she can’t live without a man, she is never been single and a virgo is a safe fu*k (keanu or alex)…it’s like guy ritchie and madonna or jlo and marc anthony…it’s a safe easy relationship for leo, now she has a baby and need a safe virgo man, when she is tired she go away like madonna and jlo

  31. LucyOriginal says:

    “I just don’t buy it. I don’t buy this dynamic with them at all. If Charlize and Keanu are hanging out, I think they’re just drinking beers and watching the game, you know? ”

    Kaiser, you may be right. But they sure had a lot of chemistry in both movies they shot together (sweet november and the devil’s advocate).

  32. Angel says:

    Charlize, run fast, never trust a man with thin lips like Alex’s! Thin-lipped men tend to be mean!

  33. Eric says:

    If Keanu wanted to be with her it would have happened already,don’t think Alex Skaarsgard is that interested either, she is dating Skaarsgard under radar cause most these celebrity dating fades away after 6 mos.
    She would be perfect for Skaarsgaard tall, blonde and actress.
    I hope she finds someone, but I am sure it won’t be neither Keanu nor Alex.

  34. littlemissnaughty says:

    If anyone should have the “problem” of choosing between these two, it’s Charlize. She’s so gorgeous I can’t even hate her for it. Charlize, honey, go for it. Hit that and hit it hard.

  35. GHJackie says:

    Brother/sister vibe. Because all tall blue-eyed blondes look alike?

  36. Sarah says:

    I could buy into the Keanu story, actually. Remember that he lost his pregnant fiancé many years ago. I think enough time has passed that he would be very drawn to that dynamic due to his tragic loss. And, I mean, it’s Charlize.

  37. sup says:

    keanu ftw

  38. Aqua says:

    I vote for Keanu.He has such a nice quality about him.I would very much like to see him with someone.

    • LucyOriginal says:

      me too!!! Love them together on screen, would love them together in real life, :).

      I don’t see what others see in the vampire (Alex S.) one.

  39. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Oi! Oi! Oi!

  40. Snowflake says:

    i’ll take kneau. he has a mysterious, tortued look about him that is very alluring. and i bet he’s fantastic in bed. *did i say that?*

    p.s. why choose? have both!

  41. West says:

    Keanu! Keanu! Keanu! Skarsgard is too ugly for her

  42. storyteller says:

    Sorry Charlize, if Keanu is hooking up with anyone, it’s me. Or Sandra Bullock. 🙂 Seriously though, she’s been friends with Keanu forever. I too, don’t see anything romantic between them. Her and Alex on the other hand, would be good for a minute.

  43. dahlia1947 says:

    I think they’re just flings. She’s having fun, sure, but I think she should be more focused on her son. She’s acting like a school girl here.

  44. ZenB!tch says:

    I don’t get the Alexander thing. He looks kind of old and tired in that photo.

    Keanu well he’s hot as long as he doesn’t open his mouth.

  45. Meanchick says:

    Why does she have to get with anybody?

  46. eljeran says:

    Uhhhhhh…..Keanu is GAY! and I so wish charlize wouold stay out of the chateau marmont. the place is a haven for the 20-30 year old burn out hollywood ex- child stars.
