For about five years, Charlize Theron has been raising two adopted children alone – 8-year-old Jackson and 5-year-old August. Recently on the Drew Barrymore show, the actress talked about why she doesn’t meet with anyone or seek a relationship.
This is strange for people. I went on a couple of dates, but I haven’t dated anyone in five years. I’m not particularly looking for relationships. I can honestly say that I do not feel lonely. When I had children, my interests did not disappear, I still live life to the fullest. And parenting is pretty hard work. But when at the end of the day I go to bed, I realize that I would not want my day to go any differently, shared Charlize.
Theron had previously said that she was dating herself. She told how her little daughter once advised her to have a man.
My girls and I were sitting in the car, and the youngest said: “Mom, you need a boyfriend.” And I answered her: “Actually, no, not needed. Now I feel good anyway. ” And she again: “You know what, Mom? You need a boyfriend and you need a relationship!”
The actress, she said, explained to the baby that she was “dating herself.”
She had such a look as if she had never imagined that this was possible. Her brain just exploded. But she realized that such a completely different option is possible, said Charlize.
