The Road actress Charlize Theron, 35, may be a strong supporter of gay marriage rights, but that doesn't mean she wants to be walking down the aisle herself anytime soon.

"I really want for myself a long-term relationship," she told Piers Morgan Tonight. "That's the kind of union that I want. The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me, but I see the importance for other people …. I treat my relationships like marriages, I really do."

Theron recently parted ways with actor Stuart Townsend, her partner of almost a decade. A few years ago he described his relationship with the Oscar-winning acress as a marriage. "I'm married," he told People. "We didn't have a ceremony. I don't need a certificate or the state 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," he said of Theron.

One thing is sure, and that's Theron's belief that people should be allowed to marry if they want to. "It's a divine right," she said. "And when government starts to tell us who can love and what is good love … I do have a problem with that."
