10+ Celebrities Who Are Happily Single

There's a lot of outdated expectations placed on celebrities — especially when it comes to their dating life. Being single is looked at as a weakness instead of strength; as a sentence instead of a choice.

Below are 10+ celebs who like to play the field. They defy the norm and embrace their independence to the fullest. They don't need a romantic partner to be happy and neither do you!

Tracee Ellis Ross.

Tracee doesn't deny that she longs for a true romantic partnership. But in the meantime, she's embracing singlehood to the fullest!

She says one of her favorite aspects as being single is the freedom that comes with it.

Teri Hatcher.

Terri has said that being single has given her a real sense of clarity. Looking back, she sees how she became wrapped up in the trappings of past relationships.

She's taking full advantage of her new perspective these days.

Michael B. Jordan.

Michael B. Jordan is wary of his celebrity. He's also focussed on being the most successful, talented young actor in Hollywood.

His first goal is to provide for his family. Until that's done, Michael is all business.

Fran Drescher.

Fran recently revealed that she is in fact in a relationship — with herself.

She admits that she's had to work hard in order to not become codependent and that it's now finally beginning to pay off.

Drew Barrymore.

While she was interviewing Jane Fonda, Drew Barrymore confirmed that she's effectively swearing-off men.

She simply doesn't have the time. Drew may not be "closed for business", as she puts it, but she's certainly not actively seeking new partners. Not right now, anyway.

Emma Watson.

Emma Watson isn't a fan of being labeled 'single'. She prefers the term "Self-partnered," which she coined herself.

Just because she's 30 doesn't mean she has to settle down, as Emma explained to Vogue. I couldn't agree more!

Halle Berry.

Halle Berry is enjoying every moment she can with her kids. It's been more than three years since Halle has been in a relationship and she aims to keep it that way.

For the time being, she's content on getting to know herself better.

Mindy Kaling.

Mindy Kaling is a superhero. She's an actress, producer, writer, businesswoman, and mother all rolled into one.

She isn't pining the fact that she's single — she's thriving! Mindy credits her strong support system for helping her keep the plates spinning.

Selena Gomez.

Earlier this year, Selena took a moment to speak with CNN about being single and the positive effect it's had on her mental health.

She proudly proclaimed how the best part of her day is unwinding in her room, just her and her dog.

Jennifer Aniston.

In a recent interview with Howard Stern, Jenn made it crystal clear that she was single and proud of it!

When Howard offered to set her up, she quickly rebuffed stating how much she despises blind dates.

Sharon Stone

"I'm done dating, I've had it with dating," Stone said on The Drew Barrymore Show.

"I just find people to be insincere and not worth my time. I enjoy my alone time and time with my kids and my friends more."

Chris Evans.

That's right, Captain America is single. Although after Chris' latest Twitter debacle, who knows for how much longer!

Chris is incredibly tight-lipped about this dating life but has stated that he longs to find an independent partner.

Emilia Clarke.

The last thing that 'The Mother of Dragons' needs in her life is a complicated relationship. She even goes so far as to claim that Valentine's Day is better when you're single!

Power to you, Clarke!

Charlize Theron.

A woman like Charlize Theron is only single for one reason — because she chooses to be.

Charlize revealed to Drew Barrymore that it's been more than five years since she's been in a relationship and she couldn't be happier.

Allison Janney

"I think if I'd found the right guy at the right time and wanted to have kids, I probably would have with the right partner," she said on The Drew Barrymore Show.

"Because I wasn't ever really confident that I wanted to have kids, and I would rather regret not having kids than have kids and regret it."
