Charlize Theron and Sean Penn shared a fleeting moment together at the Cannes Film Festival in France on Friday.

According to the report, things between Charlize Theron and Sean Penn were “frosty” early in the day, but they shared a brief moment together when they gave one another a hug and a kiss.
Also on hand for the event was Sean’s kids — son, Hopper Jack, 22, and daughter, Dylan, 25. Charlize was photographed with Hopper while Dylan stuck close to her dad.
A source told People that there was “no contact” between the two at the festival and that it was “like they’d never met.”

Another report writes that interaction between Theron and Penn was “awkward” and that they “kept their distance” from each other.
It doesn’t look like there’s much that can be made into this super brief reunion. It seems that Charlize Theron and Sean Penn embraced because all cameras were on them and it would’ve been more awkward had they not done so.
