Charlize Theron admits that it was nice to be single, but is very happy that she is now in a relationship with Sean Penn. 

38-year-old Charlize Theron made her first public appearance with new beau, 53-year-old Sean Penn at this year's Met Gala, and now the actress has revealed she is very happy they turned their friendship into something more. 

Speaking to Esquire Magazine Theron said:  "It was nice to be single and now it's nice not to be single."

Theron also spoke about her public persona telling the publication that she is not the dark person she is made out to be.

"I am presented as this dark person who comes from this dark past who is therefore obsessed with playing these dark people - and it couldn't be further from the truth."

She added: "I think I am who I am today because I was raised by parents who instilled certain fundamentals in me.

"Yes, there were things in my family that weren't healthy - like any family but maybe to a little bit more of a severe degree - but the one thing I can give both of my parents was that I was raised with a really good foundation. I was f***ing lucky to be born into that."
