“Sean and I have known each other for 18 years. We were just really good friends,” says Charlize theron, the first South African to win an Oscar. “And it’s been slow going because you are aware that you could screw that up and lose it. We had to think about it. But at the end of the day, it was somewhat effortless. It just kind of naturally happened, and before I knew it, I was in something that was making my life better—the people who really love me can see the effect it has had on me.”

“I was single for a really long time. I was enjoying mommyhood. You just naturally become kind of selfish about your time, and all of it is dedicated to this little thing, whether he needs it or not,” she explained. “And then they get into more of a schedule and you start to think, Wow, wait a second. There’s this passionate creature in me. And going about dating in your late 30’s is such a different ball game. I know so well what I want to fit in my life. And the simple answer to that is: Unless he can make my life better? My life is really pretty f–king good.”

“Look, we’re dating, and I don’t think we were trying to hide anything.” says Charlize about her relationship with Sean Penn. “We were photographed; the relationship was kind of written about. I recently did a daylong press junket, which I hadn’t done in forever, and it’s a harsh reminder that whatever people try to hide a press junket behind, it’s really a roundabout way of getting at as much private s–t as they can. It was all about what I like to eat and avoiding questions about Sean or my son.”
