2 min read · 7 years ago



Charlize Theron and Sean Penn appeared more in love than ever, but just like that, the Mad Max: Fury Road actress stopped picking up her phone. An insider close to Penn told Us Weekly that Theron abruptly stopped speaking with the actor during the Cannes Film Festival last month.

The Mad Max: Fury Road star abruptly ended contact with her former fiancé while they were attending Cannes together, according to a source close to Sean who spoke to US Weekly. “Charlize wasn’t responding to his calls and texts,” the source said. “She just cut it off.” Yikes! It will be interesting to hear what happened at Cannes, as the couple seemed happy and in love for the majority of the film fest. They were staying close together, taking in all the annual event had to offer, according to Hollywood Life.

The past is catching up to Charlize Theron in the new trailer for director Gilles Paquet-Brenner’s thriller Dark Places.

Libby Day (Charlize Theron) was only seven years old when her mother and two sisters were brutally murdered in their rural Kansas farmhouse. In court, the traumatized child pointed the finger at her brother, Ben (Tye Sheridan), and her testimony put the troubled 16-year old in prison for life. Twenty-five years later, a broke and desperate Libby has run through donations from a sympathetic public and royalties from her sensational autobiography, without ever moving past the events of that night.

When Libby accepts a fee to appear at a gathering of true-crime aficionados led by Lyle Wirth (Nicholas Hoult), she is shocked to learn most of them believe Ben is innocent and the real killer is still at large. In need of money, she reluctantly agrees to help them reexamine the crime by revisiting the worst moments of her life. But as Libby and Lyle dig deeper into the circumstances surrounding the murders, her recollections start to unravel and she is forced to question exactly what she saw – or didn’t see. As long-buried memories resurface, Libby begins to confront the wrenching truths that led up to that horrific night.

Also starring Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll and Chloë Grace Moretz, Dark Places is an ingeniously twisted thriller based on the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl). Dark Places opens in theaters August 7,
