The 61-year-old star has been married three times and has also been involved in several high-profile relationships with the likes of Timothy Dalton and Ted Danson – but Whoopi insisted she is instead relishing her own company these days.
She shared: “I like living by myself.
“I like not having to explain why there’s stuff in the bathroom on the floor and why I haven’t picked stuff up.
“And what came to me is the realisation that in a relationship you have to work on it, strive to communicate.
“I don’t wanna communicate, I have a cat.”
Whoopi said she’s become more at ease with the prospect of “being alone” as she’s got older.
She told The Sun newspaper: “I’m quite happy about it because I’m not afraid of being alone. It doesn’t mean that no one wants me, it’s that I’m comfortable here now.”
Meanwhile, the Academy Award-winning star has tipped TV chat-show host James Corden to present the Oscars in 2018.
Whoopi is a four-time host of the annual awards bash and feels the Brit – who is poised to present the Grammys next month – is perfectly suited to the role.
She said: “The way that these shows work – things like the Grammys and the Oscars – they have to be done by passionate people.”
Whoopi said James, 38, has the right level of enthusiasm to host a big awards event, and admitted she loves watching the ‘Late Late Show’ host on screen.
She explained: “You have to be passionate about it.
“We know he’s passionate about music, about movies, so it’s fun to watch him do it. I would watch him do anything.”
