I’m a relationship girl, says Charlize Theron

Washington: Charlize Theron has said that she’s a “relationship girl”, but she isn’t looking for a boyfriend at the moment. The ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ star, who has been single since her nine-year romance with Stuart Townsend ended in 2010, isn’t currently looking for a boyfriend but admits she prefers to be with someone.

“I’m always open to a relationship, but I’m not putting those feelers out there now,” a website has quoted her as telling a magazine.

“I’m not unhappy with it, but I’m not like, ‘Oh, this is so much better than when I was in a relationship.’ I am a relationship girl. That’s kind of just how I’m made,” she said.

Despite her fame, Theron, who adopted baby son Jackson in March, insists it has never been a problem in her relationships and says her life is very “contained”.

“There’s definitely something in the nature of a man and a woman that makes [relationships] challenging, but it was never a huge problem for me. I don’t live my life in a way that feels big. When you’re in my life, it’s actually very contained,” she added.

The 36-year-old beauty “always knew” she wanted to be a mother and hopes to be as good a parent to Jackson as her mom Gerda has been to her.

“Motherhood was something I always knew I wanted to experience. What a great opportunity for someone like me who wants to have a family. I can only hope to be 10 percent of the mom mine was to me. She encouraged me to be confident and enjoy life. That’s what I want for my son. So far I’m not surprised by anything about being a mom. It’s all pretty great - but that’s what I expected,” she said.
