Charlize Theron: I Always Knew I Would Adopt

It was 28 years in the making, but Charlize Theron made good on her promise to adopt a baby.

“My mother found [a letter I wrote]. It said, ‘Would you please take me to orphanage, so that I can go and adopt a baby?'” Theron, 36, says in the June issue of Australia’s Madison. “I always knew I would adopt. Always.”

And while Theron is raising her baby alone, she never anticipated becoming a single mom. “You know, I don’t think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn’t wish for that, but it happened.”

A man may even come along in the near future for Charlize, but don’t expect her to walk down the aisle. For Theron, the idea of marriage “has never been that important to me. I don’t know why exactly. Some might say it’s because my parents didn’t have a good marriage, but I don’t think so. I treat my relationships like marriages. The ceremony isn’t that important to me.”

What do you think of Charlize’s comments?
