Charlize Theron denies having been engaged to Sean Penn

But Theron now says it was not true.

The “Bombshell” star appeared on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show Monday and said to Stern, “I almost didn’t” marry Sean. “

“No, we went out, that was literally all we did, we went out,” Theron said.

CNN has reached out to Penn representatives for comment.

The couple were reportedly an item until they separated in 2015.

“It was a relationship, to be sure. We were definitely exclusive, but it was for just a year,” Theron told Stern. “We never moved. I was never going to marry him. It was nothing like that.”

It is not the first time that Theron has tried to make things clear about his relationship with Penn.

In 2015, Us Weekly reported that she ended things with Penn by no longer responding to her text messages and calls that led to a New York Times article discussing the concept of “ghosts.”
She denied it during an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

“We were in a relationship and then it didn’t work anymore,” Theron said at the time. “And we both decided to separate. That’s all.”

Finally, the mother of two children told “Entertainment Tonight” that she was “surprisingly available” and ready to change that.
“I have been single for 10 years, it is not a remote possibility,” she said. “Someone just needs to grow a pair and take a step forward.”
