‘Shockingly’ Single Charlize Theron Wants Someone To ‘Grow A Pair’ And Ask Her Out
Maybe the fact that the bombshell beauty Charlize Theron isn’t getting asked out is comforting to all you other women out there; the problem has to be the men, not us women, then, right? According to Theron, her dating life is as barren as a “Mad Max” dystopian wasteland. Sound familiar? I know I can relate.
“I’ve been single for 10 years. It’s not a long shot. Somebody just needs to grow a pair and step up,” the actress confided in Entertainment Tonight at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Thursday. “I’m shockingly available.”
Despite the fact that she’s won Oscar and is just as beautiful as she was ten years ago, Theron opened up about her lack of dating life and compelled any interested males to “grow a pair and step up.”
Her Long Shot co-star Seth Rogen seconded her comment in an interview, saying, “She’s out there,” to which she responded, “I’ve made it very clear.”
So, Not Engaged?
However, we’re a bit confused about the facts as we seem to remember that she was seriously dating – even engaged to, possibly – Sean Penn back in 2014. In fact, the Tully star was quoted gushing, “I’m in a great relationship. . .. I’m really happy” to ET at the Cinema Con event in 2015.
Rumors say that one day Theron was referring to Penn as the “love of my life” and the next, she “ghosted” him, leading to their split.
Theron’s response says the contrary, however. “There is a need to sensationalize things,” she said in WSJ magazine. “When you leave a relationship there has to be some f**king crazy story or some crazy drama. And the f**king ghosting thing, like literally, I still don’t even know what it is. It’s just its own beast.”
Earlier in her career, Theron dated the Third Eye Blind actor Stuart Townsend for almost ten years after they met filming Trapped in 2002.
But the mother of two, Jackson, 7, and August, 3, also shared a bit about how becoming a mom changed her perspective on dating, how it takes over your entire life and becomes your top priority.
She explained back in 2017, “Once you have children, that’s who you are. There is no way around that. That’s who I am. Once I had my kids, the first two years or so, you turn into such a mom. Your body almost switches off. It’s like I had no desire to date or anything.”
