Charlize Theron has kept quiet about her relationship since the two began dating earlier this year. Now Theron has decided to open up about her relationship with Sean Penn, as she graced the cover of Vogue magazine for the sixth time.
The 38-year-old model turned actress described the relationship as effortless.
“It just kind of naturally happened,” she said. “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 on me.”
Despite the love connection between the two accomplished actors, Theron says a wedding is not in the future for them.
She said, “I never had the dream of the white dress. It’s supposed to be this night of celebrating love, but it just looks like a lot of work.”
She revealed that her and Penn, 53, started out as friends. “Sean and I have known each other for eighteen years. We were just really good friends,” she said. “And it’s been slow going because you are aware that you could screw that up and lose it.”
She also spoke to Vogue magazine about her son Jackson, whom she adopted in March 2012 and why she decided to start dating again.
“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.
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 30s is such a different ball game. I know so well what I want to fit in my life…and the simple answer is this: Unless he can make my life better….my life is really pretty f–cking good.”
