"They enjoy each other's company and connect on many levels. Brad and Charlize have a lot of mutual friends and share their love of acting, but neither of them are ready for a serious relationship right now."

"They are both very single at the moment so it's no surprise people are talking romance," added the source. "They truly would make a Hollywood power couple, but at this point, they're friends."

About six months ago Pitt and Theron worked together on a photoshoot with actor Adam Driver for Breitling watches advert.
