Charlize Theron Has Been Single For 10 Years: 'I'm Shockingly Available'

Charlize Theron - Long Shot

One might think that Charlize Theron would have no problem scoring a romantic partner. Given her fame, fortune, talent, and beauty, the well-acclaimed Oscar-winning actress/producer practically seems unattainable. Especially to the general public. But Theron doesn't see it that way. As she admitted during the press rounds for her latest film, the political rom-com Long Shot, she's been single for about a decade now, and the gorgeous, well-known celebrity is "shockingly available" — despite what some might think. Here's what Charlize Theron said in an interview.

I’ve been single for 10 years, it’s not a long shot. Somebody just needs to grow a pair and step up. I’m shockingly available.

As she said to Entertainment Tonight Canada, Charlize Theron is not only willing to date again, but she wishes someone would "grow a pair" and ask her out already. There's no denying that she could have many different suitors. But it seems that people might be too intimidated to ask the celebrity to go out on a date. As least, that's what Charlize Theron claims while walking the red carpet for her newest film. Because it is now a decade since she's been dating someone (presumably, since her days dating Sean Penn) and the actress isn't necessarily afraid of getting back out there and going on a date or two — even despite Theron's very busy schedule.

Meanwhile, Seth Rogen, who plays Charlize Theron's love interest in the film, echoed this sentiment. The actor claimed that she's "out there" and currently available. It seems like she isn't necessarily holding off when it comes to dating.

Meanwhile, Charlize Theron has apparently not kept her desire to get back into dating again any sort of secret. She insists that she has made it "very clear" that she is ready to get back into the dating game. It's simply a matter of other people being willing to ask her out, which she thinks doesn't need to be that hard. Alas, Theron remains single. At least, for moment. Maybe that'll soon change.

There you have it. If you — by chance — were looking to date Charlize Theron, the time might've just arrived. Now, granted, that doesn't mean she'll agree to go on this hypothetical date. She could still turn you down. But you'll never know if you don't try, right? So, maybe you need to make the most of it.

After all, it seems like she is looking for someone who is confident enough to ask her out in the first place. If you prove yourself willing to go over that hurdle, you have a better chance than not, it seems. Make of that what you will. Who knows? Maybe you'll find yourself walking down the red carpet as Charlize Theron's newest lover. More than likely, that isn't gonna happen. But who can say? The only thing that is clear right now is that Theron is available, and she's willing to date again. Now, that info is available too.

Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen's new movie Long Shot hits theaters on May 3rd.
