Charlize Theron Says She Hasn’t Dated In Five Years
In 2015, Charlize Theron wisely ended her one-year relationship with Sean Penn by probably ghosting him. A full five years later, and she’s yet to date again. Damn, Sean turned her off romance for life! Charlize revealed her dating drought on Drew Barrymore’s new daytime talk show. A few months ago she told Howard Stern that her relationship with Sean was exclusive, but she never wanted to marry him. In fact, she never wants to marry anybody. She told Drew that she’s happy with her life and her family, and she hasn’t dated anybody in five years. Girl’s girl Drew was all, “OMG ME TOO!”
Charlize explained, via People:
“I’m open when friends of mine are like, ‘You should go on a date, you should meet this guy.’ “
While the Oscar-winner is open to meeting new people she said she feels “like I’m in a place in my life where you have to come with a lot of game.”
“Not the kind of game that we think of, the kind of game where my life is really good so you better be able to bring that and maybe better because I just won’t accept anything less”
When Charlize says “bring that and maybe better”, the “that” she’s referring to is “Big Dick Energy” that gets the job done as well as her vibrator (so, impossible!). Sure, Sean had it, but only because he’s a big dick. He’s all yours, Leila George (hey, we all make mistakes in our twenties)!
Here’s the interview video:
And another where Charlize gets into her tumultuous upbringing in South Africa:
Charlize talks about her late father, who was a “really sick” alcoholic. She says her rough childhood is part of the reason she isn’t so keen on dating right now:
“I’m not so eager to jump into relationships, because I am so proud of the fact that my kids live in the home where they feel safe. And they are never going to have to walk on eggshells. They are never going to have to come down and worry about how their day is going to go because mom’s boyfriend is not… I don’t want any of that because that’s how I was raised and It leaves marks on you for sure.”
Charlize also discussed her charity, the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP). The organization helps victims of HIV/AIDS and domestic violence. She explained that for people living in abusive homes, quarantining has been a “death wish” because they’re trapped in their “danger place”. Unfortunately, she would know. She doesn’t mention it in the interview, but, when Charlize was 15, her mom killed her father in self-defense.
Since we can’t end on that horrifying note, let’s enjoy this much lighter Charlize moment from one of my favorite movies, Young Adult:
