THE PICTURE

Theron chose a picture with an endearing backstory to wish the actor a Happy Birthday, as it was taken during the Palm Springs International Film Festival in 2006. 

During the ceremony, Reeves presented Theron with the Desert Palm Achievement Award, which she earned for her work in the movie "North Country" the previous year.

SINGLE NO MORE

Even though Reeves keeps his personal life out of the spotlight, it became evident that he started dating his longtime friend Alexandra Grant. 

The couple became red carpet official for the first time in November last year, when they showed up at the LACMA Art + Film Gala holding hands. During a later interview with Vogue, Grant elaborated on her relationship with Reeves, sharing that she found people's response to their relationship rather "fascinating."

Theron, on the other hand, just celebrated her 45th birthday. The "Old Guard" star celebrated her birthday early in August, and she joked that her mom fell asleep five minutes into her virtual birthday party. 

Thanks to the Zoom application, it is easy to set up conference video calls, and the Charlize Theron had her friends and family all together in one spot to wish her a Happy Birthday. 

Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, group gatherings go against social distancing regulations, and the actress showed that she could still share her special day with friends and family while making sure everyone stays safe an healthy.
