Charlize Theron and Sean Penn spark dating rumours after vacationing in Hawaii

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are fuelling romance rumours after the A-listers were spotted vacationing together over the Christmas break.

The South African beauty, 38, was seen sunbathing on the beach outside of the 53-year-old actor’s gorgeous holiday home on the Big Island in Hawaii, where the former model was reportedly staying.

While Charlize worked on her a tan wearing a mismatched bikini, Sean hit the waves to show off his surfing skills.

Both actors arrived home on the same flight at LAX after the New Year, though they deplaned and returned home separately.

The pair’s relationship status has been subject to speculation since 2010, when the Oscar winners were seen enjoying a dinner date together. They were romantically linked again in 2011.

Since then, however, the notoriously private stars have been careful to avoid the public eye and are rarely photographed together.

Most recently, the pair attended Seth MacFarlane's 40th birthday party in October.
