Though rumors have been swirling that Charlize Theron is planning to marry her current boyfriend, Sean Penn, the Oscar-winning actress had this to say about the institution in a 2011 interview: "Marriage was never something that was important to me. I don't know the exact reason for that. I really want for myself a long-term relationship and I have been in long-term relationships . . . That's the kind of union that I want. The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me — but I see the importance for other people."
