Actor Charlize Theron opened up about her relationship status recently and revealed that she has been single for 10 years now. The actor will next be seen in a film titled 'Long Shot' with Seth Rogen in which she will play a woman running for the post of president while Seth plays the man who has been crushing on her from when she was young and used to babysit him. It was in this context that Theron said she's been out of the dating pool for so long that courting her would be anything but a 'long shot'.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight she said, "I've been single for 10 years, it's not a long shot. Somebody just needs to grow a pair and step up. I'm shockingly available. I've made it very clear." Her co-star Seth also added, "She's out there."

The duo was seen at the 2019 CinemaCon Awards on Thursday (April 5) at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas where the co-stars received the Comedy Stars of the Year award from the National Association of Theater Owners.

Charlize was last in a long term official relationship with Stuart Townsend whom she met on the sets of 2002 film 'Trapped'. The two split in 2010 after which she began dating Sean Penn in December 2013. They even announced their engagement in 2014 but the couple split in 2015.

Earlier this year, there were also rumors about the star dating Brad Pitt after the two worked together on an ad campaign for the watch company. However, a source told People that the duo was never romantically involved, adding: “They have not been out together recently, and were never dating.”



 

Speaking of dating, Seth also said that he has been having fun playing her love interest. He joked, "I was highly aware I was going to be standing next to Charlize for a lot of pictures. I always have that image in my head of us like Beyonce next to Ed Sheeran in a T-shirt and I was like, 'I don't want that.'"
