Brad Pitt & Charlize Theron’s love affair is being sponsored by Breitling watches

Over the weekend, The Sun reported that Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt are happening. The Sun’s witness claimed they were having drinks (well, Brad was apparently not drinking alcohol) and canoodling and what have you. The claim was that Sean Penn set them up or introduced them, which was enough for me to call shenanigans – Charlize still won’t talk about whatever went down with Penn, and I really don’t think they even speak anymore. Thankfully, People Magazine has a much better explanation for all of this: Charlize and Brad met last year doing these ads for Breitling watches. And now I think Breitling is sponsoring their love:

Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron met last year on a commercial shoot, a sources tells PEOPLE after rumors surfaced of a relationship between the two.

“About six months ago, they did a shoot together. So they have spent time together,” the source says. “But anything that may have happened beyond that remains to be seen.”

Pitt, 55, and Theron, 43, shot an ad for watch brand Breitling last year with Adam Driver. The company released a sneak peek at the campaign back in September on their Facebook page.

Yeah, so now we have proof (!!) that they’ve met and breathed in the same space for advertising purposes. But does it follow that now they’re secretly dating? I have no idea. I think they make a lot of sense on paper, and lord knows I don’t think much of Charlize’s picker, so maybe they are happening.

Here’s a little clip of the Breitling shoot or something. While I find Adam Driver to be mega-sexy in an offbeat way, he really doesn’t “fit” in these ads with Charlize and Brad. It looks like the Day After The World’s Most Awkward Threesome.

    I genuinely would quite like them as a couple, and this certainly makes more sense than the idea that Sean Penn set them up (which, lol). I kinda doubt it though, I don’t think Charlize would be all that interested in him.

    Also I agree – I think Adam Driver is really hot.

  2. Mako says:

    I think Breitling is likely involved in the mix somehow, but not in the way we think.
    There’s a blind on blind gossip that intimates that Charlize is looking up with someone from the Breitling ads, but not necessarily Brad. I think Brad is rolling with the story because it looks good for him.

    • Megan says:

      Adam would be the much better choice.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Adam Driver makes a lot more sense, and jibes with the Charlize that spent years with Stuart Townsend. But he’s married, so I doubt it.

      • Mako says:

        There have been a fair few blinds alluding to the breakdown of his marriage for a while now. I believe they even split for six months or so during 2017, so I wouldn’t count him out.

      • Thaisajs says:

        I was one of the videos for this campaign and Adam looked exquisitely uncomfortable. Guess Brad and Charlize have more experience at selling overpriced stuff.

      • Gell says:

        Ooh, that’s interesting – you got any more set info to share?

  3. BigGirl says:

    One of the other gossip sites said CT is dating one of the actors she met when filming, there were three in total. The Sun went with Brad because he was moat popular.. but he’s not who’s she is dating

  4. ShinyGrenade says:

    On the last picture, who can even look at Bouffant Hair Pitt when there Daniel Wu in the same frame? He is amazing in Into the Badlands!

    • Mako says:

      Into the Badlands is such an underrated show, Daniel Wu is fantastic in it

    • Chaine says:

      Haha you are so right his hair looks like Elvis in the 1970s

    • Lady D says:

      Bouffant hair, lol. Definitely not his best hairstyle. I think he looks best with his hair parted in the middle and halfway down the back of his neck.

    • Hungry says:

      Love Daniel Wu!
      This love affair is just so convenient for Breitling! Already denied multiple times by various sources through Gossip Cop.

  5. Emily says:

    Charlize has a adopted children. So does. Angelina.

    Charlize abruptly ended a relationship because something dark went down. So did Angelina.

    If the media is looking for similarities between the two women, here there are. Although they’d probably disqualify Charlize from ever wanting anything to do with Brad if what reportedly went down on the plane is true.

    • Maya says:

      They are both beautiful, independent and extremely talented in the acting department.

      I cancelled Charlize years ago due to her friendship with Chelsea Handler but I just can’t see her get together with another alcoholic abuser after her own father and Sean.

  6. Maya says:

    Well all I have to say is that Brad seems to be the one constantly claiming to date and have moved on.

    To me, it seems that the silent one aka Angelina, is the one who truly has moved on and is probably seeing someone amazing.

    Either way, if Charlize is dating Brad then she is dumber than I thought.

    • elimaeby says:

      I completely agree. I have a theory that Angelina is totally either in a very quiet relationship or has some casual “friends” she spends time with on the DL. Brad definitely knows this, hence the constant “Brad’s TOTALLLLLY moved on, guys. Sources say he’s dating (insert most recent beautiful woman he’s worked with here) and they are SO IN LOVE! Angie who?!” I’d feel bad for him if I didn’t know what a pathetic, abusive ass he is.

  7. Erinn says:

    On a completely superficial level, that ad is the best he’s looked in a while. And honestly – they’d make a good looking couple.

    Too bad he’s such a complete moron.

  8. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I got nothing for the actual people, other than Brad’s been messing with his face, but ‘sexy’ adverts do zero for me. In fact I laugh, roll eyes and generally omg through the thing. A positive? This isn’t as bad as McConaughey’s commercials or 99% cologne adverts lol.

    • KLO says:

      I thought the ad looked completely stupid. Charlize and Adam looked great in it though, but they always do.

  9. EJW says:


  10. Mara says:

    There’s been a massive Breitling billboard with Pitt and Theron (and Adam Driver) in London Charing Cross Station for ages. I like to think someone at The Sun uses this station and that’s where they got the idea from.

  11. Jegede says:

    The ‘denials’ have been interesting.🤨

    People first claimed they were ‘spending time together’, then scrubbed that and replaced it with this update.

    Meanwhile ET was all:
    “They enjoy each other’s company and connect on many levels. Brad and Charlize have a lot of mutual friends and share their love of acting, but neither of them are ready for a serious relationship right now.”

    • Michelle says:

      The ET source is clearly Pitt’s PR trying to stroke his ego. The wording is eerily similar to his Neri Oxman dating PR. You missed out the part “They would make a great new power couple.” Charlize PR shut it all down.

    • Hmmm says:

      Nothing interesting about ET when he did the same with dr Neri Oxman. The only thing I find interesting is how quick Charlize Theron denied it… she does not want to be romantically linked to him which is not surprising for anyone who is 1. Not his Pr team & 2. Not a delusional fan of his.

      • Meg says:

        how many people will start to get mad at his team for suggesting they’re dating him without their ok first? I don’t see how this won’t affect his image within Hollywood.

  12. Chaine says:

    Snoooooze. This fake romance would be way more interesting if it was Pitt and Adam Driver.

  13. Aoife says:

    “It looks like the Day After The World’s Most Awkward Threesome” 🤣🤣🤣

  14. Hmmm says:

    Charlize theron’s Team already denied it. Swiftly. He’s made a fool out of himself 3 times now.
    Dr neri oxman is married, sienna is dating younger and now Charlize isn’t even willing to play the games with him.

    I’m not sure why his fans and the media think he’s going to trick another A list actress to be with him. Too much tabloid baggage.

    • roses says:

      Just saw the denial. Its definitely from Theron’s team, she’s not playing this game with him and yes it was swift and matter of fact. Pitt is just so full of drama and has showed who he really is, I doubt any established actress would want be bothered with him.

  15. DP says:

    Adam Driver is the best part of this clip!

  16. Lowrider says:

    Adam Driver is one unattractive looking dude.

    • JanetDR says:

      I could not disagree more but there’s not much in this ad to back me up. I will admit to spending most of a day sending photos to a friend who doesn’t see it either. My favorite is the one with a goat on his shoulders that I think I first saw on Celebitchy! Not with a goat? In a boat? There are no end of lovely pictures.

  17. Vanessa says:

    Omg I couldn’t even watch that ad… I was laughing so hard at all the quick- shots of Brad Thinking Big Thoughts With a Pencil.

    • Myrtle says:

      I know! He was busting out all his moves … but then again, that’s him.

    • Chaine says:

      What about Adam Driver putting that napkin over his face??? This is the worst ad for old fashioned timekeeping devices ever.

    • Sparkly says:

      Brad Thinking Big Thoughts With a Pencil — absolutely, and I couldn’t help laughing either.

  18. Kebbie says:

    This quotes the old People article. They’ve updated it to say they never dated and haven’t spent any time together recently. Gossip Cop has a Pitt source denying it and Us Weekly is denying it too.

    • LadyT says:

      This nonsense started with a ludicrous story in THE SUN of Pitt/Theron making out at Chateau Marmont. The only think dumber than believing it, is blaming Pitt for “planting” it.

      • Lady D says:

        I’m not arguing what you say, LadyT, but I am curious about your opinion; that story mentioned 3 times that Brad wasn’t drinking or was drinking soda water. Can’t an argument can be made that it sounds like something his PR would say?

      • LadyT says:

        The Sun (super low-tier tabloid) placed Pitt in a bar, remarking on whether or not he was drinking is just more filler people might find of interest and click on. I personally think there is zero truth to this story or any chance Pitt’s team is behind it.

      • Lady D says:

        Okay, and thanks.

    • Carol says:

      it’s worth repeating that this is typical of any PR manipulations to generate news for their clients. Just leak certain tidbit to some low-tier trashy tabloids and then send out the denials to multiple outlets. Win-win situation for their clients. Who’s to say which is the truth. They all say ‘sources’ but at the end of the day, certain clients get some good gossip news to reflect some of the negative news or to keep so and so relevant in the spotlight. Ah the beauty of 101 PR manipulation eh.

      Think about it. Who would benefit with that info about him sticking to soda water instead of vodka?? Certainly not Theron, lol.

  19. lucy2 says:

    This is the same playbook they used for Neri. He briefly interacted with a successful, attractive woman, so let’s create a whole shomance for the tabloids, through some “source” quotes out there, and when no one buys it, throw out a “she’s nice but he’s focused on his kids” or something like that!
    It’s so obvious and sad, these attempts to make people think he’s super desirable to accomplished women.

    • Carol says:

      IKR?? Same game with different player. Wanna bet he’s sleeping with Sat Hari but cause his fans think she’s not as attractive and famous as his first two ex wives thus he’s doing it on dl. Dude is such a fame seeking ass. Loved the way Theron’s PR team shut it down real quick and let it be known they were not ever an item during and after the shoot, lol.

  20. Helen says:

    “It looks like the Day After The World’s Most Awkward Threesome.”

    i couldn’t place my finger on why these ads annoyed the heck out of me… this is exactly it!! lol

    • Harryg says:

      I think these ads are terrible. Sort of “none of us was really here when this was shot.”

  21. Anastasia says:

    OMG ok first, there’s no way Charlize is with Brad. I don’t buy it for a second, and I see now that her team has denied it.

    MORE IMPORTANTLY: Adam Driver can GET IT. I’ve always liked men who are handsome in unconventional ways, but it’s more than that with him. It’s kind of in how he moves and how damn big he is. Guh. I want to climb him like a tree. Plus, I’ve watched him in a lot of interviews and he’s SO SHY AND WONDERFUL. Shy guy? EXTRA attractive. And the work he does for the arts in the military is amazing.

    • JanetDR says:

      Have you seen his TED talk? That sealed the deal for me! He has a marvelous combination of strength, vulnerability , humor and self awareness.

  22. Pancake Bacon says:

    Here for Daniel Wu, really. He’s the hottest of the three guys. In Asia, the Breitling billboard shows Brad, Charlize and Daniel. Wish it could’ve been Adam instead, as I would have kicked out Brad.

  23. steph o says:

    I thought the headline said their romance was sponsored by Breitling witches and excitedly clicked on the link. What a letdown.

  24. Mia C says:

    They are on a mission….to learn their lines….ON TIME.
    WTF, advertising people???

  25. Anna says:

    Ugh. They are both insufferable.

  26. Jessica says:

    I never believed it. Another L for The Sun. I just think they wanted clicks.

  27. Annalise says:

    I think this sudden “romance” with Charlize Theron has way more to do with Neri Oxman getting married and expecting a baby than anything to do with Angelina or his failed NOLA project

  28. Michelle says:

    Entertainment outlets (E, ET, Access Hollywood & tabloid press are pathetic. They’re so desperate for this to be true. And slamming Angie as they always do. The way they all fawn over Pitt is nauseating.

  29. AD says:

    It’s high time Pitt’s face is buried in a bin, nauseating face I find
