Charlize Theron has been spotted with film director Quentin Tarantino at a cozy dinner in Beverly Hills at the famed Mr. Chow's restaurant.

Theron was enjoying her first night out as single woman in over nine years after she split with long time boyfriend Dublin actor Stuart Townsend.

Reports say Theron 'looked radiant' during the dinner and was not wearing the commitment ring that Stuart had given her when they pledged undying love to each other.

The first sign of trouble in the relationship was when she did not wear that ring during her appearance on a telethon to help victims in Haiti.

Townsend has reportedly moved out of their Hollywood home to another residence and is said to be heartbroken by the breakup.
