Stuart Townsend: Charlize Theron is My Wife

Stuart Townsend: Charlize Theron is My Wife

Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend are husband and wife (but not legally). During a dinner party at The Supper Club, the couple even showed off their rings (he has a silver cross-shaped band on his ring finger).

“I’m married,” Stuart told People. “I didn’t do a church wedding or anything, but we’re married. We’re husband and wife. “We love each other and we want to spend our lives together. [She's] the greatest woman I’ve ever met.

“We didn’t have a ceremony. I don’t need a certificate or the state or the church to say otherwise. So no there’s no big official story on a wedding, but we are married. … I consider her my wife and she considers me her husband.”

Stuart, 34, and Charlize, 32, met seven years ago on the set of Trapped. Theron attended the Toronto Film Festival to support Townsend‘s directorial debut film, Battle in Seattle, a dramatized look at the 1999 World Trade Organization convention and the protests that overtook the city of Seattle and caused a state of emergency. Theron also stars in the film.

“It was really amazing tonight to premiere the film with her,” Townsend said. “She’s proud and she was crying, so it’s as important to her as it’s important to me. We’re a team and we’re in this together. That’s what you do. You look out for each other.”

    AWWWW that is soooo sweet! But sometimes when they start expresing stuff publicly on the red carpet, they are usually breaking up next month! Eg: Britney and K-Fed, J.Lo & Ben Afleck, J.Lo & Cris Judd, Carmen Elektra & Dave Navarro, Jessica & Nick and so forth!

    she’s stunning and far prettier than skankelina

    Hmmm Angelina was the only person you campared Charlize to?
    Seems like Angelina is the woman. You could have mentioned any of a hundred of actresses but……..

  • justme

    @ bengourion
    LMAO!!! Angelina is a million times prittier than charlize!!!!!!!

    There is no competition between them! Angie IS the ONE and ONLY.

  • H

    cool to have such a hot wife. i tried to pick up a girl wich a pair of legs as long and beautiful as your wive´s, it worked, but i got bullied. so try to care about her, and forget the thiefs like me.

  • bengourion

    I compared her to skeleton with fish lips coz every f*****day we hear about her and each one of her moves and not because she’s the only one to compared to…and yes,there is no competition between a glamorous beauty and a drug addicted


    Hmmm, I thought that he had flown the coop.

  • minxx

    She’s NOT his wife. Remember Michelle Williams calling Heath her “husband”? Wishful thinking, that’s all. By going public with their “marriage”, he’s trying to assert his rights but Charlize is a cow and she’ll dump him when she gets bored. She already said she’s not that into kids and she wouldn’t even promote his movie in Toronto (see Lainey’s account). It’s not sweet, it’s sad and pathetic. Someone mentioned Angelina. At least she’s honest about not wanting to get married but being in a commited relationship. Goldie never called Kurt her husband either. Charlize will dump his ass, mind my words.

  • free yourself from the packs

    the 2 packs a day ciggy habit is taking a toll on her shows..please quit Char..and cut out some of the booze too.

  • minxx

    Charlize in Toronto, refusing to promote Stuart’s movie:

  • Mona says

    Bengourion, you DARE speak negativity about the saint that is ANGELINA, LOL. Dude, this is the official Brangelina, all loonies welcome, website. Reason and common sense do not reside here. Take cover man, they are gonna be gunning for you now.

  • bengourion

    yeah you’re right mona lol I know that the only comments tolerated here are the”omg she’s beautful!!!”or “omg brad is hot!!”…
    and Im’n neither a fan of this bag of bones nor of horse face of maniston so..yes,fan of other people do exist!

  • Ha!

    Minxx, I may be wrong, but aren’t these pictures of her with him in Toronto promoting his film? These two have been together for years now and have said that they weren’t going to legally get married. I’m not sure what you’re b*tching about.



  • Ha!

    Again, one of the crazies breaks in with something about Jennifer Aniston. Neither Angelina nor Jennifer need to be mentioned here. WTF? This is getting old.

  • Kelly

    Bengourion you rock. Nice to see someone not afraid to speak their mind and not be all fake & gushing over Brangelina-loonies!!! I am a fan of hers, but sometimes the retards on here are just so stupid. GOD BLESS THE JOILE-PITTS! Lol. Get a life! Come up with something original for ONCE.

    And I love Stuart & Charlize. Seem like nice people. And they both can act!

  • Dieter

    I love her pooper a lot !!!

  • colleen

    I love them!

  • LJ

    Cute. They are good-looking couple. And Lainey is shit..

  • LJ

    They are great-looking couple. And Lainey is shit..who the hell believe that site??

  • Cindy

    THis woman is stunning. Unfortuanately the idiot Miss Teen looks just like her. I hope people know the difference. CHarlize has so much class and she is very smart….just love her!

  • Ken

    It is great, marriage should be a commitment between two people. Why bring in the state and the church to it. But I do think pre-nup is a good thing, especially if one is more richer than the other. I think Charlize is.

  • angelina_mmm

    she too good for him

  • Whatever

    To each their own. I’m happy for them. She’s stunning!

  • the_original_nika

    hot couple. I’m happy for them.

  • Bang Bang

    hoho such a freak is this guy!!! seaking for attention… got tired of being in her shadow?? yes she is damn hot nd talanted…she tried to help u with the acting ,but u couldnt make it… i dont believe u r good as director either…to be with a star doesnt make u one ;) however its a bit negative all i wrote,but im fed up with this dude!
    Angelina?? Dont pliz put her in this one as well…

  • bebe

    Sorry. You’re not “married” until you do it officially, meaning papers. I could say I own your house. Hey, I don’t need the papers, right? Who needs them. I’ll just pop into your house one day and claim it. —It’s so stupid what they’re saying. It’s not recognized anywhere. Hey, just take a kid from an orphanage and say you adopted them. No papers, right? So stupid.

  • doc

    so why then even wear rings if “traditionalism” is for the average cookie cutter?

  • more fluff

    What is wrong with people?

    Why “pretend” to be husband and wife when you’re not? Okay Stu – you don’t want to be traditional, says you. Then stop lying. And yea, why did you have to symbolize your love with a ring of all things? You could have exchanged another piece of jewelry or got a tattoo.

    Just another couple of celebs lying to themselves and trying to convince themselves and others that traditional marriage means nothing to them. It means something to them. If not, they wouldn’t even talk about it.

  • Didi

    barf city. shut the f*ck up you irish pr*ck. can’t even afford a wedding.

  • Christy

    congarts to this young hot coupel ! i love thie idea to me they are more than married as well as kurt and goldie for staying that long in hollywwod it’s a miracle ! they don’t need a piece of paper and thank god cuz most of the hollywwod stars who signs this fucking papers get divorced a month later and paid millions for it and im not talking about the scandals and magazines covers….

  • remember da truth

    he’s Scottish, not Irish. What does nationality have todo with it anyway? And why call him a prick? So he answered questions about his relationship — if he had said, “it’s private, no comment” you would have called him a prick for THAT. Stop being so angry — do you hear yourself? what is really bothering you?

    Tim Robbins has called Susan Sarandon his wife, too, and they aren’t married and have raised kids together. What is a marriage to you? Apparently, the commitment part, the daily give and take, teh support o each other — that meanst nothing to you. What matters is a big wedding, a honeymoon, and sanction by the state to carry on your life with this person in a committed union. Some people are independent enough not to want to have the state tell them ow to live their personal lives, and are realistic and aware enough to realize that sanctioned by the state or not, a marriage has only a 50-50 chance of lasting anyway, so what’s the big deal? The real committment is a lot harder to make.

  • bebe

    Uh, excuse me but states do not tell you “how to run your personal lives” when you’re married. You get benefits, in fact: property, inheritance, insurance, hospital visitation rights, etc.
    If they Susan Sarandon, Tim Snob Robbin, and Charlize Theron really believed that documents don’t mean anything and that they don’t want to live by them –hey, why have an actor’s contract then? Just work for movies without papers. They don’t mean anything, right? It’s just your commitment… to your “work”. Oh, and when they have service people come and do work on their home, don’t make them sign a contract (hours, rates, liability, etc) because it’s all just about the “commitment”. Hogwash.
    They don’t live by the very principle they claim. Hypocrits.

  • tabula

    Jeezus, that’s hot. “We’re in this together”…that’s what it’s all about isn’t it? That’s the kind of happiness you get out of life when you’re as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside.
