5 Celebrities Who are Loving the Single Life

With all of the gossip that surrounds celebrities and their romantic relationships, it’s hard to believe that any of them are single, at least for long. But here are 5 celebs who’ve been on their own for a while, each with their own take on what it is to be single – some inspirational, some supportive, and some just downright practical – there’s someone everyone can relate to.

  1. Teri Hatcher

In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Teri Hatcher said that she was, “feeling her best as a single woman.”

“There is a difference between being lonely and being alone,” Hatcher, who divorced in 2003, told PEOPLE. “I have been single for a very long time but there is nothing lonely about my life. I want to remove the stigma of that.”

Hatcher went on to say, “Many women who get divorced will not get remarried. That kind of sounds depressing but it doesn’t have to be. Many women are not just surviving alone, they’re thriving. They’re empowered, they’re making money, they’re being healthy, they’re traveling. You are allowed to be proud of your life when you’re not part of a couple.”

  1. January Jones

“Do I want [a partner]? Maybe,” January Jones said in an interview, speaking about single parenthood.

“But I don’t feel unhappy or lonely. It would have to be someone so amazing that I would want to make room. Someone who would contribute to my happiness and not take away from it.”

  1. Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling certainly knows success. After a stint on The Office and her own show, The Mindy Project, plus publishing multiple books, you’d think her next goal might be a relationship. You’d be wrong.

Kaling told Flare magazine, “In my 20s, I was not only boy crazy, but marriage and relationship crazy.” “Now it’s almost the opposite. My work is so rewarding and I’m so self-centered about it that I’m kind of excited about not having to go home and ask someone about their day.”

  1. Diane Keaton

Diane Keaton, a celebrated actress who has never married, says she never WANTED to marry.

While most women in our society are scrambling to get married, the screen actress says that she didn’t want to give up her independence. Even though she dated some high profile actors when she was younger and could certainly have “landed” anyone she wanted, she chose to be on her own. She adopted and raised two children on her own, and has lived a happy single life.

“I remember when I was young I honestly believed in some ridiculous way that you would find someone who would be the person you lived with until you died,” she told WENN. “I don’t think that because I’m not married it’s made my life any less. That old maid myth is garbage.”

  1. Fran Drescher

After divorcing her husband of 21 years in 1999, Fran Drescher has found love again — with herself!

“I think that I’ve had to very consciously work on not being codependent, not being fearful of being by myself or doing things by myself,” Drescher told PEOPLE magazine. “I really had to make a concerted effort to get past that. And I think that I am good with it now. But still, I’m not like, ‘I’d rather stay home by myself than go out and do things by myself.’ But then whenever I do do things by myself, I enjoy it.”

She added, “And then I think, that hiccup phase where I don’t push myself to do it, until the next time I do. So, I think that that’s been a big hurdle in my life that I needed to conquer. And getting really connected to myself has been a great journey because now, I’m not even feeling like I have to be in a relationship, because I’m in a relationship with myself — and it’s going quite well.”

There you have it, 5 celebrities who are loving the single life. Feeling empowered? Here’s a quote from a very not-single woman who seems to have a great take on singlehood anyway:

“It’s nice to have a relationship, but women have become addicted,” Salma Hayek said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. “You can have a relationship with God. With nature. With dogs. With yourself. And yes, you can also have a relationship with a man, but if it’s going to be a shitty one, it’s better to have a relationship with your flowers!”
