Since her breakup with longtime love Stuart Townsend earlier this year, Charlize Theron has been linked to such eligible bachelors as Keanu Reeves (denied) and Ryan Gosling (ditto). Now, Life & Style claims the Oscar-winning knockout, 35, has started seeing someone with a much lower profile, a little-known model-actor named Eric Thal, 45. His resume includes a variety of supporting big-screen roles and a few gigs on a couple of "Law & Order" spin-offs. "The two have a lot in common," a Thal insider tells the mag. "He's a farmer who grows all his own vegetables, and Charlize grew up on a farm in South Africa. The two like to escape Hollywood and go to his farm in upstate New York." Charlize's rep didn't respond to our request for comment on the "Green Acres"-like dating chatter.
