Los Angeles - Actor Sean Penn has given up guns for South African beauty Charlize Theron, and they are dating, CNN talk host Piers Morgan revealed.

In a column for the Daily Mail's Event magazine published last Saturday, Morgan recalled how Penn publicly declared that he got his guns melted down and turned into a sculpture, thanks to Theron's influence.

Morgan said he was at a Jan 10 gala for Penn's Help Haiti Home charity, where Penn said in a speech: "I'm a self-proclaimed Alpha male who owns 67 firearms. But I've had my mind changed about guns by a strong woman, a beautiful South African woman. I don't need these cowardly instruments of violence and destruction, none of us do."

In his column, Morgan said Theron has been against guns since "her mother shot her drunken abusive father dead, after he came home firing his own gun and threatening to kill them" when she was 15.
