Being a single mom isn’t easy, but what’s it like if you’re Charlize Theron?

Maybe not so different. The 41-year-old mom-of-two got personal with Howard Stern during a recent radio interview where she talked about her career, her dating habits and her latest movie, Atomic Blonde. She also told Stern that she is currently — and carefully — dating since splitting with Sean Penn in 2015.

And it sounds like she’s got some strict rules for potential suitors: “They have to wait a long time — a very long time,” she said of potential boyfriends meeting her kids. “I think you have to be really, really slow with that stuff.”

Theron has two kids: 5-year-old son Jackson and 2-year-old daughter August. She told Stern and co-host Robin Quivers that becoming a mom changed her.

“Once you have children, that is who you are, there’s no way around that,” she said. “The first two years you turn into such a mom, your body almost switches off. I had no desire to date.”

We hear you, Charlize. (But we’re still jealous.)
