Charlize Theron and Sean Penn Caught In Accidental Compromising Position After Dinner Date

12 February 2014

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn haven't been able to keep their hands off each other since going public with their romance but their show of affection reached new heights last night when photos emerging of the couple leaving a dinner date made it appear as though they had been caught in a compromising position.

The A-list couple had dinner at Bouchon restaurant in Beverly Hills yesterday where they had attended a charity event and were joined by a couple of friends as they left in Sean's car.

After taking pride of place in the front passenger seat, Charlize, 38, decided to reach over her beau's lap in the but the paparazzi snapped the moment at an awkward time and the result made it look as though the South African beauty was getting frisky with the Secret Life Of Walter Mitty actor who sat in the driver's seat.

Of course, the smitten pair weren't actually up to anything naughty and it was all down to the trickery of the camera lens.

The new couple have pretty much been inseparable since they were first spotted together at the beginning of January and couldn't keep their hands off each other while out and about in LA on Saturday afternoon.

The Hollywood pair were spotted enjoying a huge passionate kiss with Sean keeping one hand on the steering wheel of his car as Charlize grabbed his face.

A source recently told E! News that Charlize has brought out the best in Sean, 53, and it sounds as though the romance is getting serious. “Sean is head over heels in love with Charlize, and her son Jackson,” the insider said.

“He is a totally different person around Charlize, she brings out the gentle and fun side that not many people have seen of Sean. To see this previously surly grown man, romping around Charlize's backyard with Jackson, with a smile on his face would amaze Sean's detractors. Charlize is getting Sean to not take himself to seriously.”
