Then, Charlize was single and she stated that she wasn’t in a hurry to be in a relationship. She told the host of the show, Drew Barrymore, “I don’t long for that much. I can honestly say this, on my life: I don’t feel lonely.”

The Academy Award winner disclosed that her priorities changed once she became a mother. She further added, “Once I had my children, it’s not that it replaces something, or that it makes you less interested in something else. I’m still firing on all cylinders. I just think your priorities are in a place that is of high demand; it’s a lot of work to be a parent. Part of that is at the end of the day I get to bed and I think, ‘Oh my God, I wouldn’t want this day to be any different.’ “
