New Delhi, June 24 : Love is not enough for Charlize Theron, for the actress also needs some passion to go with it, insisting that lust is just as important as love.
The Oscar-winning actress has been with boyfriend Stuart Townsend for around six years and claims that passion makes up an integral part of her relationship and she couldn't live without it.
"I think I need a bit of both love and lust. I've been in situations where I have cared about someone, but there wasn't that fire, and that is important. It's chemistry and I don't know why one person does it for me rather than another. It's the mystery of life and love," The China Daily quoted her, as saying.
The 'Monster' actress claims that destiny had a lot do in her relationship with Stuart, whom she met while filming 'Trapped' in 2002.
"We met on set and we liked each other. It was like, 'You are awesome, and I'm never going to see you again.' But somehow we always ended up in the same places. I was in London working, and we were sitting in his apartment drinking wine, and before I knew it we were packing up his apartment and he was moving to Los Angeles. Someone wanted us to be together," she said.
