The Sun revealed today that Charlize Theron has split from long-time boyfriend, Stuart Townsend. The couple, who were together for five years were having trouble dealing with their conflicting movie schedules, and have decided to part ways.
He was noticeably absent from the Aeon Flux star's side at last Sunday's Oscars and the Baftas the week before.
Hollywood's rumour mill went into overdrive. And last night a pal said: "Charlize is free and single again. Her relationship with Stuart is well and truly over. They just grew apart. It wasn't always easy because filming often kept them apart for months."
The South African-born actress, who won an Oscar in 2004 for playing a serial killer in Monster, said: "It's not really what I want -- or what he wants."
So, do you feel that tiny glimmer of hope? The one that makes you think you might be the next lucky man on Charlize's arm? Well put the down the crack pipe, because it ain't happening. Besides, she wants to be with me.
