Charlize Theron Forced To Reunite With Ex-Fiancé Sean Penn To Reshoot Scenes For Their Movie ‘The Last Face'

Let’s face it, the last person you want to see, let alone hang out with, after a break-up is your ex - but Charlize Theron and her former fiancé Sean Penn were forced to do just that earlier this week.

Charlize called off her engagement to the 54-year-old actor last month after 18 months together, but the pair had to put their personal stuff to one side when they were reunited to reshoot scenes for their forthcoming film ‘The Last Face’.

Ooooh, awkward.

Sean is directing the film, which follows the head of an international aid agency, played by Charlize, who meets a relief aid worker (Javier Bardem) amidst a political and social revolution in Africa.

Both Sean and Charlize have been spotted on set in South Africa over the last few days, but for their sake, we hope the re-shoots aren’t going to take too long.
