While she hasn’t ruled out the idea of a new relationship, Theron admitted that her next husband “ has to come up with a lot of game. ”
“Not the kind of game we think about, the kind of game that my life is really good in so you can bring that better and maybe better because I just don’t want to accept anything less,” Theron told Barrymore during a video call. .
She continued: “I can honestly say this, I don’t feel lonely about my life.”

“Once I had my kids, it’s not like it replaces anything, or that it makes you less interested in something else,” she said. ‘It is a lot of work to be a parent. Part of that is, I go to bed at the end of the day and think, ‘Oh my God, I don’t want this day to be any different.’
Theron and Penn, 59, were reportedly together from 2013 to 2015, according to People.
In June, she set the record right to her previous relationship, after Howard Stern asked her if they were engaged.
“ I haven’t dated anyone for over five years, ” the 45-year-old star revealed, noting that she is still ‘open’ to going on dates when her boyfriends propose potential partners.
‘I can honestly say this, I don’t feel lonely about my life,’ she said in the interview, after saying I was a mother
‘What? That is not true. No. I’m not ‘nearly married to Sean,’ that’s such bullshit, ”Theron replied. “No, we dated, that was literally all we did, we dated.”
She continued: ‘It was definitely a relationship. We were absolutely exclusive, but it hardly lasted a year. We never moved in. I would never marry him. It wasn’t anything like that. ‘
When Stern, 66, asked the Mad Max: Fury Road star if she ever wanted to walk down the aisle, Theron said, ‘I never wanted to get married. That has never been something that matters to me. ‘
