Theron and Penn had bonded over their charity efforts in Africa and Haiti. Over time their friendship blossomed into a relationship. In the June 2014 issue of Vogue, Theron opened up for the first time about their romance. She said, “I really didn’t see it coming,” noting, “Sean and I have known each other for eighteen years. We were just really good friends.” Theron added that it was “effortless” and “kind of naturally happened, and before I knew it, I was in something that was making my life better.”
