New man in Therons life?

LOS ANGELES: Charlize Theron — who is rumoured to have called off her relationship with actor Stuart Townsend over the Christmas period — was seen having a meal at Hollywood’s exclusive Chateau Marmont last week with a handsome male and onlookers

says they looked more than friends.

One said, “It looked like a date. They had dinner, then left together.” Over the weekend, it was claimed the Oscar winning beauty had told friends she split from Stuart after a trip to Mexico over the festive period, and had stopped wearing an antique commitment ring he had given her as a sign of his love.

A friend of the couple said, “Stuart is gutted but Charlize said that she realised during the Mexican holiday the relationship was over. They had become more like brother and sister than lovers. It was she who ended it.” The actress — who is yet to comment on the reports — is now reportedly living in their main home in the Hollywood Hills, while he has moved his belongings into their beach house.
