Charlize Theron and Sean Penn were a red hot A-list couple for a while. They were a power couple all the way up until the Mad Max premiere, then all of a sudden, they weren’t anymore. Charlize hasn’t opened up about why they split, until her interview with WSJ Magazine. She went into detail about why they broke up, and no she didn’t “ghost” him like many speculated. She tells the magazine, “We were in a relationship and then it didn’t work anymore. And we both decided to separate. That’s it.” Charlize shared more details regarding the mutual decision to end the engagement. Charlize reportedly cried during the emotional interview.
