Brad Pitt stepped out with some friends on Wednesday night for a rare public appearance in Los Angeles. Amid rumors of his heated romance with Charlize Theron, Pitt rocked a scruffy beard as he enjoyed a night on the town with a few of his closest friends.
The actor looked more than comfortable in black jeans and a zip-up jacket, under which he wore a maroon t-shirt. Pitt, who completed his look with a newsboy cap, posed with several fans and seemed to enjoy his night out.

The outing comes amid rumors that Pitt is secretly dating Theron. According to Daily Mail, the rumors started after Pitt worked alongside Theron in a photo shoot promoting Breitling watches. Inside sources say that Pitt and Theron really hit it off and have been secretly spending time together ever since.
“About six months ago, they did a shoot together. So they have spent time together,” an insider dished. “But anything that may have happened beyond that remains to be seen.”
Last week, the rumors picked up after a source claimed that Pitt and Theron have been dating for several months. The insider says that their romance turned into something special over the holidays and that Theron frequently hangs out with Pitt inside his Los Feliz mansion.
Although they are apparently in a relationship, Theron has not met any of Pitt’s children. The actor is currently in the middle of a nasty divorce from Angelina Jolie, with whom he shares six kids: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox.

Theron was previously in a long-term relationship with Stuart Townsend until their breakup in 2010. She also dated Sean Penn and they were engaged to be married until their split in 2015. Theron has two children of her own: Jackson and August.
Pitt has not commented on the dating rumors. Considering how his divorce with Jolie is still not finalized, Brad Pitt is reportedly taking his relationship with Theron very slowly. He also wants to keep it out of the public eye until the divorce is over.
