Long kiss goodnight: Theron and Reeves caught smooching

2010-05-06 00:00

CYBERSPACE is in a whirl over a video of actors Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves locked in a passionate embrace.

The pair — who have co-starred as lovers twice — were caught ending a dinner date in Los Angeles with kisses described as “not a peck on the cheek”.

Paparazzi blog TMZ.com filmed them on the pavement outside a Beverly Hills restaurant on Monday night, and it’s the way Theron slips her hand under Reeves’s jacket that has tongues wagging.

Viewers have crowned the video, dubbed “Charlize and Keanu, the Long Kiss Goodnight”, with five stars.

Many of the comments express surprise that Reeves, who is apparently widely believed to be gay and even married to a man, is kissing a woman. The 32-second clip shows Reeves holding Theron — his co-star in The Devil’s Advocate and Sweet November — tight and dipping her head back to plant a kiss on her lips, while her hands wander beneath his jacket, before they part and leave in different directions.

Theron’s love life has been the subject of speculation for months since she broke up with longtime boyfriend Stuart Townsend.

But was her kiss with Reeves just the warmth of old friends or something much more?
