One of the tabloids maintains Charlize Theron is going on a date with Trevor Noah after the "Daily Show" host asked out the actress. The story, however, is untrue. Gossip Cop looked into the claim and can debunk it.
Theron and Noah, both of whom are South African, have been friendly for years and even teamed up on a 2017 campaign to empower the youth in their homeland. Additionally, earlier this month Theron appeared on the TV host's late-night comedy show to promote her new movie Long Shot. According to Life & Style, Noah has been crushing on her for a long time, and has now finally decided to act on it.
A supposed source tells the magazine "the timing was never right" for the two in the past, as "he was either in a relationship or she was just too busy being a mom to commit." The alleged insider further contends the comedian "finally got the nerve to ask Charlize out on a date, and of course, she said yes."
Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a source close the Theron, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but tells us the magazine's article is false. An individual in Noah's camp similarly confirms there's nothing romantic going on between the two. The unreliable outlet seems to be linking the actress and the TV host simply because both are South African and have a friendship.
It should be noted, Theron said in an interview with "Extra" last month that she's not looking for love at the moment. The actress explained, "I'm gonna finish this press tour [for Long Shot] then I'm gonna shoot a movie in London, and I'm figuring like around September we'll talk about this." The actress, who will be overseas for the next few months shooting the action movie The Old Guard, isn't currently on the dating scene.
Also, Life & Style has already proven to have very little insight into the actress's love life. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for wrongly reporting Theron was dating Alexander Skarsgard after supposedly striking up a romance on the set of Long Shot. As time has confirmed, the co-stars were never a couple.
Just last month, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for making up a story about Ben Affleck's friends trying to set him up with Theron. The untrustworthy outlet has a habit of arbitrarily linking the actress to famous men. Noah is the latest male celebrity to be selected, but Theron simply isn't planning a date with the "Daily Show" host.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
