Prior to Sean Penn, Charlize dated Irish actor Stuart Townsend. They met each other on the set of the movie Trapped which came out in the year 2002. They played the role of a married couple on screen.
Townsend spilled the beans on the pair’s first meeting during a 2004 interview with Irish America. Then, he talked about their first read through and said, “We sat beside each other and I honestly really didn’t take that much notice, maybe because we were working.”
He further added, “All I remember is Charlize had a dog with her and I remember thinking, ‘Oh, there’s the mad lady with the dog!'” His thoughts about Theron changed later that evening when they met for dinner with the director.
Stuart raved for Charlize and told the media outlet, “She just looked like a million dollars. I went, ‘Whoa! Who is this girl?'” He added, “When she glams up it’s ridiculous. She can look so hot. She’s a goddess, man, a total goddess. That night we had so much fun. I was just smitten after that.”
Theron, for her part, didn’t think Townsend was boyfriend material but her perception about the actor also changed quickly. She told Marie Claire, “He had all the criteria for somebody who wasn’t going to be anything serious.”
The Cider House Rules actress added, “He lived over there [in England]; I lived over here. So we were very honest with each other: ‘I think you’re hot, I think you’re nice, I think you’re smart. We can go on dates. What do you think?’ And then, things happened.”
During an earlier interview with People magazine, Theron spoke about Stuart and said, “He doesn’t take himself so seriously and that’s hard to find in a man these days.” During the course of their relationship, they even moved in together.
Charlize told Elle UK, that she knew she was falling in love with Stuart after just a few weeks together. In a 2007 interview with People magazine, Townsend called Theron ‘his wife.’ At that time, they were not legally married.
Then, Stuart said, “I’m married. I didn’t do a church wedding or anything, but we’re married. We’re husband and wife. We love each other and we want to spend our lives together.”
He further added, “We didn’t have a ceremony. I don’t need a certificate or the state or the church to say otherwise. So no there’s no big official story on a wedding, but we are married. … I consider her my wife and she considers me her husband.”
The two of them decided to go their separate ways in the year 2010. They were meant to be together but just not meant to last. Then, a close pal of Charlize told Daily Mail, “Stuart is gutted but Charlize said that she realised during the Mexican holiday that the relationship was over.”
Theron’s friend went on to say, “They had become more like brother and sister than lovers. It was she who ended it.” Even after their split, Charlize had nothing but good things to say about her former boyfriend Townsend.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, she called Townsend the “best thing that’s ever happened to me.” Later on, while having a conversation with ABC News, she compared being in a relationship with Townsend to winning the lottery.

The Atomic Blonde star went on to say that right now all her focus is on her 2 kids. She continued, “Right now, everything I do revolves around when my kids are out of school for the summer, which usually means we’re shooting in a heat wave somewhere.
