Charlize Theron: Jackson Is The Coolest Kid

Charlize Theron

I have to say, I feel really happy for Charlize Theron and for her decision to adopt a child and raise him as a single mother. She seems like one of those Hollywood stars who really isn’t interested in fame and the red carpet glitz and glam (even though she looks great doing it), but would rather sit at home with her friends and a pack of Coors Light and just take life one day at a time.

The gorgeous South African beauty opens up to British Vogue this month about her new life as a mom and why she decided to adopt. She also says that her baby Jackson (I wonder if she is going to call him Jack?) is the coolest kid ever and that it was her own mom that pressured her into having children. Here are some snippets:

She‘s always wanted to be a mom: ‘I’ve always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I’ve always known I wanted a family.’

Her mom pressured her too: ‘I don’t think my mom could wait any more!’

Jackson: ‘Jackson is incredible, the greatest gift,’ she added. ‘He is the coolest kid ever.’

Who she admires: ‘I hope to be like my mom,’ she told the magazine. ‘Fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my ownperson and own independence.’

Vulnerability: “All my characters have to be people with a capacity for vulnerability, a weakness. I have never met a human being who doesn’t have vulnerability.”

Born a decade too late to really make it as a model: ‘I was too tall, too big, too late for the supermodel look of the Eighties. Kate Moss and all the tiny, grungy girls had just become fashionable, and I didn’t fit the bill.’

Diet and exercise: ‘I’m sure there are women who never have to worry about what they eat. But I do. I exercise a lot, and I hike a lot. My mom and I hike at least three times a week.’
