I have older posts on this blog pointing out that just because a person is considered Marriage or Dating Material by American cultural standards – thin, pretty, wealthy – does not mean she (or he) will have success at dating (or marriage).
Here we have Charlize Theron, who I’d think most people would agree is a very beautiful woman, AND, she has a successful career, is probably very financially secure (due to her movie making career), yet, she’s not had a date in ten years, she says!
Charlize Theron is ready for her next relationship.
ET’s Kevin Frazier spoke with the actress and her Long Shot co-star, Seth Rogen, at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Thursday, where she revealed that she’s waiting for someone to “step up” and date her.
In Long Shot, Rogen plays a man who courts his childhood love and former babysitter, who is now running for President — but Theron said that in reality, she’s been out of the dating pool for so song that courting her would be anything but a “long shot.”
“I’ve been single for 10 years, it’s not a long shot. Somebody just needs to grow a pair and step up,” she said. “I’m shockingly available.”
“She’s out there,” Rogen added.
“I’ve made it very clear,” Theron insisted.
The actress’ last public long-term relationship was with Stuart Townsend, whom she met on the set of the 2002 film, Trapped. They split in 2010. She started dating Sean Penn in December 2013, and announced her engagement to him the following year, though they split in 2015.
