Surf’s up!

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn hit the beach together in Malibu, California, on Sunday.

Penn, 54, showed off his toned physique when he rode the waves for a bit of surfing while Theron, 39, lounged on the beach in a black swimsuit and white cover-up. The pair also shared a sweet snuggle on the beach while mixing in with the regular beach crowd.

Now that the weather is warming up, the Gunman actor, who is an avid surfer, may be hitting the beach more often with his girlfriend.

Penn, who has been dating Theron for over a year, isn’t shy about expressing his love for the South African beauty. In February, Penn corrected a French reporter who referred to the actress as his “girlfriend,” saying, “No, no, excuse me, Charlize is not my girlfriend. She’s the love of my life.”

In March, he also called Theron a “director’s dream” after working with her on his latest project, The Last Face.

The couple’s weekend beach trip comes at an appropriate time as things will soon be busy for Theron. The actress is gearing up to promote her latest feature, Mad Max: Fury Road, which hits theaters May 15.
