She might be a gorgeous Oscar-winner, but Charlize Theron insists she’s ‘really hard to be in a relationship with.’
Theron, appearing Monday on The Late Late Show with James Corden, explained why she can be a frustrating partner with her aggressive neatness.
‘I’m very OCD, I don’t like the idea of having too much stuff – or stuff that I don’t use – it really bothers me, yes,’ Theron, 43, said.

The A-list actress told Corden that in one case, she disposed of a partner’s shoes she wasn’t partial toward.
‘I think it’s really hard to be in a relationship with me,’ said Theron, who was promoting her new romantic comedy Long Shot in the appearance. ‘I was in a relationship and whenever this person went out of town, I couldn’t help myself, I needed to get kind of rid of – listen, I was being helpful, I think – because men’s shoes are tricky.’
The South African-born stunner, who appeared alongside her co-star in the political comedy, Seth Rogen, continued: ‘He had very tricky shoes and when he was out of town, I would get rid of the tricky shoes and he would come home and within two hours say, “Where are my straw shoes?”
‘And I’m like, “Did you just hear yourself? You’re wearing straw shoes – no grown man should wear straw shoes” … and he had like the clown patch shoes, the fabric patch.’
