One year after Charlize Theron breakup with Sean Penn the Oscar-winning actress was rumored to have “ghosted” her ex-boyfriend: shutting him out of her life with no explanation and simply stopped responding to his calls.

In a candid interview with WSJ Magazine, the Hollywood star opened up for the first time about her failed romance with actor Sean Penn. Theron insisted those rumors are false. When the couple split over the summer

“There is a need to sensationalize things, ” she told the WSJ mag (via E!). “When you leave a relationship there has to be some f**king crazy story or some crazy drama. And the f**king ghosting thing, like literally, I still don’t even know what it is. It’s just its own beast.”

She explained “We were in a relationship and then it didn’t work anymore. And we both decided to separate. That’s it.”
She didn’t clarify exactly what it was that didn’t “work.” She only noted that despite their engagement, they weren’t as linked as some thought.

Theron, 40, also disputed reports as if Penn had been planning to adopt her 4-year-old son, Jackson. “We were very, very new in a relationship, ” she said. “The stories that Sean was going to adopt Jackson, and all of that was not true. It’s not something that happens in 18 months. You can’t do that to a child.”

The Huntsman: Winter’s War star has since adopted an infant daughter, August. “We had a very clear understanding, ” she said of Penn. “He knew that I was thinking about filing for another adoption, but that we weren’t filing together.”
“There was an understanding that I was a single mom with a very young boy who I had to put in a situation where he understood that Mommy dates, but that he does not have a father, ” she said. “You have to be very careful and very honest about that stuff. And Sean was great with all of that.”
