Charlize Theron is clearing the air about her former relationship with Sean Penn.

While appearing on The Howard Stern Show, Howard asked her about rumors she’d once been engaged to Sean.

“What? That’s not true. no. I did not ‘almost get married to Sean’, that’s such bulls—,” she said. “No, we dated, that was literally all we did, we dated.”

She continued, “It was a relationship, for sure. We were definitely exclusive, but it was for barely a year. We never moved in. I was never going to marry him. It was nothing like that.”

Reports had previously stated that the former couple dated in 2013 before splitting in 2015.

When asked if she ever thought of marriage or felt lonely, Charlize said, “I never wanted to get married. That’s never been something that’s important to me.”

“On the lives of my children, I’ve never been lonely. I’ve never felt alone,” she said. “My life right now just doesn’t allow a lot of room for something like that to happen. But in saying that, there’s not this thing that drives me [to have a romantic relationship].”

She continued, “I enjoy being set up on dates but I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to live with somebody again. To be totally frank, they might have to buy the house next to me. I don’t know if I’m going to be able to deal with that ever again, I’m too old for that s—.”

You go, Charlize!
