Theron Rents Out Malibu House for $50,000

It has been almost 2 months since Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves were allegedly seen kissing at an LA restaurant and were romantically linked. A lot of media outlets have wired this news with many fans hoping the duo could form the perfect couple.

However, no progress were reported after that night and both Charlize and Keanu were always spotted at different locations with different people accompanying them.

Now, Charlize is rumored to be renting out her lavish 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom 2,092 sqf Malibu Beach villa overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The exclusive with a jacuzzi in the master bedroom is available for fans to rent it to get a chance to live where Theron did but the asking price is $50,000 a month.

For those who have the cash, it is a possibility to live in Theron's house. Is it worth it? Probably not.

Theron is currently shooting Mad Max 4: Fury Road, along with British actor Tom Hardy and the movie is scheduled to be released sometime in 2012.
