Following her breakup with longtime beau Stuart Townsend, Charlize Theron is single again, and the Oscar winner tells The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday that while she’s in unchartered waters, she’s swimming along quite nicely.
The 36-year-old South African stunner said she hasn’t been single since she was 19.
“I’ve been in two relationships — one was 10 years and one was three years, just like back-to-back,” she said. “I haven’t really … when I talk about it, it’s not to get pity. It’s actually a nice experience for me because I haven’t experienced it.
“I think that I’m a bit of a creature that is definitely very comfortable in a relationship — that was my 20’s and early 30’s,” the Mighty Joe Young star said. “I was never single and now all of the sudden … not that I’m painting the town red, and dancing, and clubbing, but I’m really enjoying being on my own.”
DeGeneres told Theron she’s “very much a relationship person also.”
Theron said she had a “tiny” coffee date with an unnamed suitor — at one of their homes.
“So you’re going to his house or he’s coming to your house for coffee?” DeGeneres asked. “That’s not a tiny date.”
“In my world, that is a tiny date,” Theron said. “It sounds like what you’re not supposed to do, but in my world, there really is no other way.”
Said DeGeneres, “Like, come to my house for coffee?”
“Is it wrong that I did it naked?” Theron joked. “Is that not normal?
