As Irish actor Stuart Townsend nurses a broken heart rumors are circling that his former partner Charlize Theron and old buddy Keanu Reeves have become a couple.

Reeves, who is known in the industry as a genuinely caring guy, is said to be helping the actress Sandra Bullock (who starred alongside him in 'Speed 2') as best he can as she works her way through her divorce.

Earlier this month it was revealed that Keanu and Charlize - the former 'Sweet November' co-stars - had been dining at a Beverly Hills restaurant when they were seen sharing what appeared to be an intimate moment.

Theron and Reeves have shared the big screen as husband and wife and perhaps they're auditioning for reality now too. Reeves certainly stays close to the actors he's works alongside and it's not difficult to imagine that that his interest could turn romantic!
