In the wake of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's divorce announcement, news of another A-list couple's breakup faded into the background. That's probably how Sean Penn and Charlize Theron preferred it, though, because unlike Affleck and Garner, they chose not release a joint statement to announce their split.
Penn and Theron ended their relationship as quietly as it began.
The exes were last seen together during the Cannes Film Festival in May.
When Penn and Theron flew home, the actor returned to his Malibu mansion, while Theron and her 3-year-old son, Jackson, stayed at her Hollywood home. Before their breakup made headlines, the two backed out of at least one scheduled event together before she flew to London to film The Huntsman.
Reps for the stars have not commented on the split.
The actors have kept a low profile since then. But on Wednesday, Theron, 39, was photographed by the paparazzi for the first time since she broke up with Penn, 54. Wearing a gray sweater and black yoga pants, the Dark Places actress was seen running inside an Arco Gas Station before heading to SoulCycle. Penn, who took his Malibu mansion off the market, has been seen in public several times post-split.
