Theron, 38, and Penn, 53, have had a whirlwind romance this past year. However, despite looking very in love at the Met Gala and at the L.A. film premiere for A Million Ways to Die this month, the actress admits she never saw the relationship coming.

"Sean and I have known each other for 18 years. We were just really good friends. And it's been slow going because you are aware that you could screw that up and lose it," she said in the June issue of Vogue. "We had to think about it. But at the end of the day, it was somewhat effortless."

"The people who really love me can see the effect it has had on me," she continued. Adding to Esquire: "It was nice to be single and now it's nice to be not single."

Theron previously was in a nine-year relationship with actor Stuart Townsend until their split in 2010. She adopted son Jackson, now 2, in 2012. Penn was previously married to Madonna from 1985 to 1989. He and his second ex-wife, Robin Wright, are parents to daughter Dylan, 23, and son Hopper, 20. The House of Cards actress got engaged to actor Ben Foster last January.
