I totally forgot that Charlize Theron got rid of Sean Penn by essentially icing his ass out and just ghosting him. She ignored his texts and calls and just never spoke to him again. God knows what happened there, but it’s hilarious and Sean probably deserved it because he’s a fucking mess. Anyway, Charlize is finally speaking about the relationship and she thinks the hype about that breakup is ridiculous. After all, can you really ghost someone if you don’t even know what ghosting is?
“There is a need to sensationalize things,” she told Wall Street Journal magazine (this is seriously a thing?). “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.”
“We were in a relationship and then it didn’t work anymore. And we both decided to separate. That’s it.”
Well, I suppose we’ll just have to go with that one, then.
Apparently there was also a bunch of talk about the possibility of Sean adopting Charlize’s son Jackson, but she says that was a bunch of baloney, too.
“We were very, very new in a relationship. The stories that Sean was going to adopt Jackson, and all of that was not true,” Theron revealed. “It’s not something that happens in 18 months. You can’t do that to a child.”
“There was an understanding that I was a single mom with a very young boy who I had to put in a situation where he understood that Mommy dates, but that he does not have a father, you know what I mean?” she explained. “You have to be very careful and very honest about that stuff. And Sean was great with all of that.”
So now you know. Don’t you feel better about your day?
