Theron has been single since the end of her nine-year relationship with actor Stuart Townsend.  She stars in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, opposite Twilight star Kristen Stewart. Theron plays the evil queen. She is also one of Dior's brand ambassadors.

And just like another Holllywood single mom, Sandra Bullock, who adopted Louis two years ago, she has managed to keep this adoption process a secret from the press. No easy feat.
