According to Us Magazine, ridiculously talented couple Charlize Theron and Sean Penn got engaged way back in November, with Paris as the romantic backdrop. Or, as an anonymous source told the gossip mag, they "decided to take their relationship to the next level." Don't go looking for a blindingly ginormous ring though, as Charlize isn't really into elaborate weddings and their accompanying traditions. That's fine; the photos of Sofia Vergara gazing lovingly at her new diamond are satisfying enough for now.
