Penn and Theron to marry in South Africa

Wedding bells are ringing for the Oscar-winning actors.

20 Jul – At 53-years-old, actor Sean Penn is ready to walk down the aisle with his 38-year-old girlfriend, actress Charlize Theron. The two have been dating for only eight months but sources claimed that they are ready for the next step.

According to UsWeekly, the two are planning to have a summer wedding in South Africa. The couple are currently there filming "The Last Face", a love story in which Theron is acting and Penn is directing.

The couple are friends long before they started dating.

Even though they haven't been romantically involved for that long, Penn and Theron have been friends for 18 years.

"They want to get married soon," a source told UsWeekly, "They're looking to the future with a lot of hope."
