Celebrity couples really are something else. They bring a lot of praise when it seems like a perfect couple. But when there’s fallout, people often feel the need to pick sides. Because of this, a lot of celebrities have found the notion of being single quite viable.
They don’t need a man or a woman, for that matter. They’re completely independent and don’t mind being on their own. Find out about some of the biggest celebs who are fine with being single from their own mouths.
Charlize Theron recently shared her thoughts, “I can honestly say this, in my life, I don’t feel lonely. Once I had my children, it’s not that it replaces something or that it makes you less interested in something else.”
“I’m still firing on all cylinders. I just think your priorities are in a place that is in high demand; it’s a lot of work to be a parent. Part of that is at the end of the day, I get to bed, and I think, ‘Oh my God, I wouldn’t want this day to be any different.’ ”
“I never believed the whole ‘I’m happy single’ spiel. I was like, ‘This is totally spiel,’ it took me a long time, but I’m very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered.”
She continued to speak about how she felt pressured to find a boyfriend by societal standards. As a woman who just turned 30, she felt like she was expected to find a partner to “depend” on. Since then, she’s decided that she doesn’t need to live up to anyone’s expectations.

Demi Lovato has said that they have had a lot of bad experiences when it comes to dating. But at the same time, they are open to the idea of it. They just haven’t found the right person yet.
“Because if we don’t believe, then who will?” We can turn this planet around. If we get enough people to expand their consciousness, the rest will follow. I believe it.”
Jennifer Aniston is still one of the most influential actresses today. But why is she single? Well, she gave us a nice insight into her private life when she talked to Bruce Bozzi on his show.
“There hasn’t been time [to date]… and it’s COVID, although people seem to have met and found love during COVID. I don’t know how it works. I’m curious to walk up to those people and go, ‘So… what happened?'”
Angelina Jolie was on E! News and had this to say. “I have six very capable children. Of course, you wake up, and you just feel like, ‘I’ve got to make sure they’re OK. I’ve got to make sure they’re mentally OK,’ but honestly, I think a few years ago it switched, and they’re thinking, ‘I’ve got to make sure mom’s OK.’
“We’re such a team, so I am very, very lucky. I’m always the one who worries, but I don’t worry about them. They’re cool people.”
Selena Gomez shared a bit of background about her dating life with Vogue Australia, “I think most of my experiences in relationships have been cursed.”
“I’ve been way too young to be exposed to certain things when I was in relationships. I guess I needed to find what was that word for me because I felt so less than in past relationships and never really felt equal.”
Allison Janney confessed on the Drew Barrymore Show, “I think if I’d found the right guy at the right time and wanted to have kids, I probably would have with the right partner. Because I wasn’t ever really confident that I wanted to have kids.”
“I would rather regret not having kids than have kids and regret it. I really am at this time in my life, getting to know who I am and what I want. So I’d love to eventually find someone to share my life with, but if it doesn’t happen, I think I’ll be just fine.”
Sharon Stone is another big celeb that went on the Drew Barrymore Show. She had her own views on dating that she happily shared with the hostess and her audience.
“I’m done dating. I’ve had it with dating,” She said in the interview. “I just find people to be insincere and not worth my time. I enjoy my alone time and time with my kids and my friends more.”
As a twist, Drew Barrymore revealed on her own show about her dating status and views on the whole dating game. She shared them with her then guest star – Jane Fonda.
“I’m not closed for business, but I have been exactly in that mentality for the past five years, thinking I just don’t have the bandwidth, I don’t know if I’m willing to open [up,] I just can’t fit it in.”
Tracee Ellis Ross revealed on Instagram how she felt being single and on Valentine’s Day, no less! “As a happily and gloriously long time single woman who also has a deep desire to be in a romantic partnership with someone, Valentine’s Day can feel tricky,”
“But, I am reminded that although I don’t have one special partner… my life is wonderfully full of so much special love. And one of my favorite parts of being single is how I get to choose who I spend my time with, share my heart with, hang with, giggle with, call, dine across from.”
Taylor Swift has a long history of dating celebrities. She’s got a lot of experience and thinks she’s better off for it. She told Katie Couric in an interview:
“Guys can be a part of your life, but never let the guy be your life. They can live in your world, but never make the guy your world. Knowing who you are and being independent and strong will be attractive to the right guy.”
Diane Keaton, who is most well known for playing Annie Hall, told WENN in an interview, “I remember, when I was young, I honestly believed in some ridiculous way that you would find someone who would be the person you lived with until you died.
She continued, “I don’t think that because I’m not married, it’s made my life any less. That old maid myth is garbage.”
Stevie Nicks, known for her solo career and lead singer of Fleetwood Mac, has opened up about what it’s like to be her, “If that special man walked into my life, I’m the first one to say I would probably pack my bags and go with him.”
“But it’s a very elusive thing. … Most women would not be happy being me. People say, ‘But you’re alone.’ But I don’t feel alone. I feel very un-alone. I feel very sparkly and excited about everything.”
