Charlize Theron is setting the record straight on her past relationship with Sean Penn.
The “Mad Max: Fury Road” star, 44, previously described Penn, 59, as the “love of my life,” but now says she “barely” dated him for a year.
“What? That’s not true. No. I did not ‘almost get married to Sean’, that’s such bulls–t,” Theron said Monday on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show” when asked if they were ever engaged. “No, we dated, that was literally all we did, we dated.”
“It was a relationship, for sure. We were definitely exclusive, but it was for barely a year,” Theron, who was on the show to promote her new Netflix film, “The Old Guard,” said. “We never moved in. I was never going to marry him. It was nothing like that.”
The couple reportedly began dating in late 2013 and split in the summer of 2015. A source confirmed to Page Six at the time that the couple had ended their engagement.
Months before their split, Penn said he was surprised to be in love again after his failed marriages to Madonna, 61, and Robin Wright, 54.
“It could seem too late,” he said. “But to run into somebody now who you care about is a much more passionate, deeper, truer and – God! – a much happier feeling. It’s a lot more romantic and a lot more fulfilling to be in a relationship and to think you’re a good person within it.”
