Charlize Theron seems to cover a different magazine every single month. I used to think it was part of her general publicity and promotional efforts. Now I realize it's a signal to her friends and family that she's Sean Penn's girlfriend and she's still breathing. She could send out nightly Tweets -- Sean enraged, doors seem strong #blessyouredwoodframes -- but Charlize has always shied away from social media. Why not an Esquire magazine cover to let mom know that that ominous call from the police won't be coming tonight and you can rest easy.
