The kiss of death for most public relationships usually involves large declarations of love, followed by words like “soul mate,” “love of my life,” and “I’ve never felt this way before.” Such was the case with Charlize Theron and Sean Penn, the latter of which even went so far as to suggest that despite his decades-long marriage to Robin Wright Penn and their two children, his marriage to Charlize Theron would actually be his first. Their romance ended shortly after it began, and rumor has it their personal relationship went south while shooting ‘The Last Face,’ together in South Africa.
So what went wrong besides Penn’s prickly on-set demeanor as a Director, and is it true that Theron “ghosted” her then fiance instead of ending the relationship amicably? Theron is now speaking out, and her potty-mouth is in full form. During her interview with WSJ Magazine, she said, “We were in a relationship and then it didn’t work anymore. And we both decided to separate. That’s it.” She added, “When you leave a relationship there has to be some f–king crazy story or some crazy drama. And the f–king ghosting thing, like literally, I still don’t even know what it is. It’s just its own beast.” There you have it.
