Charlize Theron has told her daughter August she is dating herself after she suggested her mom needs a relationship.
Charlize Theron is dating herself.
The 'Old Guard' actress declared to her five-year-old daughter August that she's in a relationship with herself after she suggested her mom needs a man in her life.
Appearing on Diane Von Furstenberg's Spotify podcast, 'InCharge with DVF', she said: ''Two days ago I was in the car with my two girls and my little one said something like 'You need a boyfriend!'
''And I said, 'Actually, I don't. Right now, I feel really good,' and she's like, 'You know what, mom? You just need a boyfriend, you need a relationship!'
''She had this look in her eye like she had never really contemplated that that was even a possibility.
''Her mind was blown. But, I know that was the day that she realised there's a different possibility.''
The 44-year-old star - who also has eight-year-old Jackson - joked in September that she's dating her 'Bombshell' co-stars Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie.
She captioned a snap with the pair: ''I feel like I have to be honest. I'm in a new relationship. With both these ladies. For real.''
Meanwhile, Charlize recently admitted she isn't ''missing out on something'' by not dating.
The 'Atomic Blonde' actress isn't interested in finding a romantic partner, and slammed society for making relationships seem like something everyone ''needs and wants''.
She insisted: ''I really do believe that women really make s**t happen for themselves, and I think this idea of relationships sometimes gets ... society approaches it in a sense of like, obviously that is something you need and want, and that really hasn't been the case for me.
''I don't feel like I'm missing out on something in my life, it's just not something I'm looking out for right now. I think that time will come.''
If and when Charlize does find the right person for her, she would love to follow in the footsteps of Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuck, who continued living separately after they got married.
She added: ''I think if I met the love of my life, we would have to buy a house down the street. I remember when Gwyneth Paltrow married her husband Brad and they lived in separate homes, people made such a stink about it. I was like, 'That's my kind of relationship!' ''
Charlize previously dated Sean Penn, and recently clarified that despite engagement rumours that circled a year after they got together in 2013, Sean never popped the question to her.
When asked about speculation she had once been engaged to Sean, 59, she said: ''What? That's not true. no. I did not 'almost get married to Sean', that's such bulls**t.
''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.
''We never moved in. I was never going to marry him. It was nothing like that.''
