Charlize Theron has made a very successful life for herself thus far. She's got a booming career and two young children, and while some would argue that the only thing missing is love, Theron says she's got plenty of it.

While appearing as a guest on Howard Stern's radio show on Monday, the radio host inquired about the 44-year-old actress' love life today, commenting that she was "almost married" to her former flame Sean Penn.

"What? That's not true," the South African actress quipped. "No. I did not 'almost get married to Sean.' That's such [expletive]. We dated. That was literally all we did."

"We dated and then we didn't date," Theron explained. "It was a relationship, for sure. We were definitely exclusive, but it was for barely a year. We never moved in or…like, no, I wasn't gonna marry him. It was nothing like that."

The "Mad Max" star added that she's "never wanted to get married" as it's "never been something that's important to me."

After clarifying her past, Theron confessed that when it comes to finding "romantic love" these days it's a bit of a challenge.

"My life right now just doesn't allow for a lot of room for something like that to happen, something that's already incredibly difficult to achieve when you're not a single mom with a career," she said.

However, that doesn't mean she's lacking in life. She shared that her life is "filled with love" and "there's no part of my soul that feels lonely or missing out" largely because of the immense love she feels for her two children -- 8-year-old Jackson and 3-year-old August.

Theron goes on to confess that she isn't sure that she doesn't even know if she would even be able to coexist in the same home with any potential future partner.

"I don't know if I'll ever be able to live with somebody again. To be totally frank, they might have to buy the house next to me because I don't know if I'm going to be able to like [expletive] deal with that ever again," she said candidly. "I'm too old for that [expletive]."
