Now That I Know Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron Aren't Dating, I Sort of Wish They Were

Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron were the subject of dating rumors this week after The Sun alleged that the two A-listers struck up a romance over Christmas and have been spending time together since. According to the UK outlet's story, Brad and Charlize caught feelings for each other after being introduced by her ex, Sean Penn, and the "new lovebirds were all over each other at a showbiz function" earlier this month. While the reports have since been shut down — ET maintains that the two are just friends, and a source told People that they actually met at a campaign shoot last year and "have not been out together recently" — it still got me thinking: maybe they should date?

I'd never pictured Charlize and Brad as a couple before, but the rumors inspired me to consider it more thoroughly and I've since decided that they should get together — for real. Think about it: they're both Oscar-winning Hollywood icons with over 100 movies between them. They both have kids (two for Charlize, six for Brad), so they could potentially work out an amazing Brady Bunch-style situation. They're both passionate about philanthropy. And finally, they would slay the hell out of a red carpet together. Think of the glamour!

As we wait to see if my 2019 celebrity couple wish comes true, see the stars who have already been hit by Cupid's arrow this year and look back on the other high-profile women Brad has dated in the past. I'm rooting for these two to become more than "just friends."
