The actress stars alongside bearded Seth Rogen in romantic comedy The Long Shot.

London - Bearded men, get your wax and comb at the ready.

Charlize Theron says she’s looking for someone with facial hair – but if yours is on the patchy side, you might not stand a chance.

The South African actress, 43, was describing her ideal suitor after she revealed last month she is "shockingly available".

Following her 2015 split from actor Sean Penn, who himself has often been seen with a somewhat patchy beard, Theron said she sidelined romance to concentrate on raising her two adopted children.

"I made a choice to be single. I was raising two small children and that’s what I wanted to do," she told the Sun on Sunday.

"Now I have changed my mind and I will handle it. I want to have a good time." Speaking about her ideal man, she said: "It depends on the guy. A man that can grow a good beard. I don’t want guys who don’t grow good beards to grow beards, like those patchy ones. I’m not a fan of that."

The actress, who stars alongside bearded Seth Rogen in romantic comedy The Long Shot, added: "I’m just looking for a good human."
