Charlize Theron: I'm a lucky girl

Charlize Theron lacks the "articulation" to share the impact Sean Penn has had on her life.

The blonde actress and 54-year-old actor began dating last year and have become inseparable ever since, with Sean even in the process of formally adopting her son Jackson, three.

Despite having been friends for 20 years before romance blossomed, Charlize admits she's still overwhelmed when in the presence of her beau.

"I’m a very, very, very lucky girl. Very lucky. He’s hot. He is hot. How do you say that in an interview? You’re a 40-year-old woman sounding like a 16-year-old," the 39-year-old giggled to America's Esquire magazine. "There’s something beautiful about that, but you lack the articulation of really saying what it’s like when somebody walks into your life and makes you see something that you really never thought you’d be able to see. If somebody had said to me, ‘This is what it will be,’ I would’ve said, ‘F**k off.’ As you can see, it makes me smile."

Sean was married to Robin Wright when he and Charlize first met, while Charlize had a relationship of nearly nine years with Stuart Townsend.

The Prometheus star confessed she never expected to get to where she and Sean are today, but she's pleased their love stemmed from a stable friendship.

Rumours have been swirling that the pair are engaged and although neither have confirmed the news, Charlize was happy to discuss the prospect of walking down the aisle.

"The marriage thing is always so strange to me anyway. I love the possibility of anything, but I’m really enjoying myself and the everyday moment and how that coincides with my son and my life and my friends," she added.
