Charlize Theron for ESQUIRE Magazine
Charlize Theron is ravishing in the May 2015 issue of Esquire magazine.
During her sit-down, the actress speaks on her beau Sean Penn, and reveals makes their relationship work.
On her relationship with Sean Penn- “We’ve been friends for twenty years. He was married, I was in a long-term relationship, our spouses — not regularly, but we were in each other’s lives. I think our friendship stemmed from mutual respect — more on my end, because I really didn’t have a body of work twenty years ago, but my love and passion for making films — that was our common ground.”
On no Hollywood talk when they’re together- “That’s sometimes hard to find among friends here, and that’s where our friendship really blossomed. I think that for both of us there was never a moment where we thought that this — what we have today — would ever even be a possibility. Ever ever ever. I think we’re both finding ourselves at this moment in our lives kind of shocked. Both of us. Just when you think you know how things are supposed to go down, life just kicks you in the ass and guess what? You don’t have a clue. It is nice to be in something where the friendship came first. I’ve never had that. There’s a weight to the relationship already that I don’t think you have when you just meet somebody and enter a relationship.”
