Charlize Theron: Grocery Shopping at Bristol Farms!

Charlize Theron looks pretty preppy in a cute gray cardigan and white oxfords while grocery shopping on Monday (April 16) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 36-year-old actress has been busy raising a new baby boy, promoting her upcoming films Snow White and the Huntsman and Prometheus, all while remaining active with her charity project, the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project. Charlize recently donated designer dresses from her closet for her online Charity Buzz auction. Proceeds from the auction will go towards aid in South Africa.

    That`s nice to see her out and about again . I guess see going home and cook for her boyfriend Alexander Skarsgard .Where is baby Jackson

  • Terri

    This is the first time I have ever seen her doing an ordinary thing like grocery shopping. I’m sure she has done it herself in the past and not sent her assistant out to do it but the paparazzi never bothered to take her picture then.

    She is vert tall.

    @EmilyB: she doesnt date losers

    Bristol Farms is a pap hotspot. She knew they’d be there. In any case, she looks good, happy :)

  • Oh what a shame.

    So charlize hires people to look after jackson just so it doesn’t disturb her sleep, oh what a shame welcome to mother hood,
    and I expected better from Alexander skarsgard, his mon raised 6 kids whilst she was studying for a medical degree, think of her sleepless nights and stellan has raises a total of 7 and an 8 th on the way thinking of his sleepless nights and he still looks good including his Mamma my

    Little peace here in Aussi land

    Who’s the best rested new mum of them all? Charlize Theron, of course! The 36- year old may be thrilled about newly adopted son Jackson, but she’s not letting him get in the way of her Z’s. “Charlize has long been obsessed with beauty sleep as her secret to looking young and hot,” a tattler tells NW, so she’s spending $30k a month on child care to give her time to nap. “She employs two nannies, a housekeeper/cook, and a personal assistant to handle the raising.” Sounds like a nightmare bill!

    yes not good to be dating viking, you get called very bad things from very stupid people.

  • Mel

    @Oh what a shame.: If that’s the way she is, I seriously doubt ASkars is actually dating her. He’s said in interviews that he wants to settled down and have kids, but he gives the impression that he wants to actually be a family man like his father and would want a woman who was an involved mother like his own. It certainly doesn’t sound like Charlize would fit that bill if she’s spending $30K/mo to make sure she gets in lots of naps. He’s always sounded in interviews like when it comes to raising a family, he wants a bit more “normal” life… nothing like that. My guess would be they are nothing more than friends who were seen out and rumors went wild over them!

  • http://- gross

    Mr bean..& charlize, only if he remains in character from the maths test episode with the pink panther…rahhhh!!! perfect couple, honey to the bee, wildflower! sweet as sugar candy cane, fireworks! weeee

  • Agreed


    You should check out the AS jj post dam it’s gone wild 234 comms bickering about who was in the car and it’s charlize he is dating bla bla.

    I agree with you Alex is a family man and I wouldn’t think he appreciate a high maintenance women spending 30k on childcare a month that’s someone yearly wages , let alone having some stranger taking care of his children.

    I agree friends until something more happens.

  • hey you

    OMG, the ASkars old fat psycho fangurls have arrived in Charlize’s posts *runs away *

  • JillyRo

    She is so bitchy looking all the time, even in allowed pictures she comes across as an icy cranky person, it’s not just in pap pics, but allt the time. I hope her little guy learns to laugh and smile having such a sourpuss face for a Mom, she’s a beautiful woman, but so little joy in her face.

  • Mel

    @hey you: I happen to like Charlize as an actress. Personally, having knowledge of Alex’s interviews and expressed interests regarding family, I just don’t see the two of them as a relationship match if she is honestly spending that much a month in hired child care.

    I’m not a “fangurl”. Alexander Skarsgard is an interesting actor who takes on a variety of roles, not just Eric Northman the vampire. My favorite role of his so far has been the Marine Sgt “Iceman” in “Generation Kill”, a far cry from his character on True Blood.

    Get over yourself and don’t immediately judge other people by their comments or opinions.

  • HateCrew

    @hey you:

    You’re so wrong and right! But just to let you know; not all the haters are some fatty ASkars loons. That yucky granny page for Swedish actors are gearing up for AS/CT hate fest b/c of that few sec vid clip. Funny thing is that most of them are not even his fans, why so concerned about his private life when they go blindfolded when it comes to their own idols, let’s say Kinnaman and Manganiello? They created their soddy forum for Joel Kinnaman but use Alex to get hits and members. One of the mods is actually AS hater from start. They are so busy to bash Alex they hardly ever comment anything else in other threads. I’m sure they are trolling here as well, as obsessive, crazy cows they are. Oh how I miss those old good days when AS had only Moyer fans up his a$$. It seems that the more popular he becomes, the more he gets the haters.

  • luppy

    charlize need to dump skargtrash because she looks already miserable

  • Amanda

    I think ASKARS fans have gotten the power roles in this relationship reversed. Babes, this isn’t Bosworth and Askars.

    Charlize is way above his league- she is an Oscar winning respected actress in Hollywood-has two huge blockbusters she is headlining. Respected by her peers and runs in the highest power circles in Hollywood.

    CHarlize is smart, funny, down to earth, and not into the hollywood crap. If she is dating Askars she needs to stop. the moment he starts pulling his hollywood crap, he will get dumped. Charlize is notoriously private.

  • Amanda


    Charlize is a single mom with a ton of work on her plate. She produces, runs a charity, has promo to do, two huge films coming up and movies to act in.

    So what if she spends money on child care?? She needs to otherwise she wouldn’t be able to do everything she needs to do to work and support him- she loves him and is not a neurotic nutcase.Nothing wrong with a nanny.

  • Lilla

    Why are some so negative about her adopting? She’s giving him a better life, how is that bad? Good for her.

    Alex is very private too, it’s pretty obvious who called the paps in his last relationship.

  • Rachel ()

    Hmm. I read comments on a CT post about a week ago. All of them were like “Charlize is the most beautiful person ever” “gorgeous” “Can’t wait for SWATH”. Now, I wonder what might have turned everyone against her… *cough-AlexanderSkarsgard-cough*
    I, personally, love her!

  • Rachel ()

    @Mel: I love Alex too, but do you really think he would be opposed to getting his children the best child care possible? Do you think he would want a woman as talented as CT to quit acting, or become a neurotic mess, to care for the child alone while working so much?
    Lots of mothers work. I’m pretty sure most of them would love to have a nanny. When you want to save $ you eat out less, buy less designer bags. You don’t hire a bargain nanny. If you can afford $30,000 worth of motherly security, you pay it.

  • Lilla

    @Rachel (): I love her too & I can’t wait to see SWATH!

  • Rachel ()

    @Lilla: This whole thing makes me rethink all of the “You guys hate Kate Bosworth b/c she dated AS” accusations. What else do ppl want in a gf for Alex? CT is a pretty, smart, private, Oscar winner & ppl are still b!tching.

  • Amanda

    I don’t understand this any- nanny sentiment. Having a nanny isn’t something reserved for the uber rich. Its a necessity if you are a working mom. If you are really can’t afford a nanny then you seek out other forms of child care like day care,family, etc.

    If i had a busy day schedule and then couldn’t sleep at night , how would one be an effective mom? Charlize is a celeb, but she is human- if one doesn’t get any sleep then the time she would be with her kid wouldn’t be that great – should we would be stressed, tired, and irritable. Its just normal. Having a nanny gives a child some good perspective and is another person there for her or him.

  • Sara

    @Rachel() I strongly disagree with your comments. If she is so busy then she should not have decided on being a parent. I believe this is a crucial time for her to bond with her son. All this Hwood stuff should be irrevelent at this time. She could have taken time off. Natalie Portman is a award winning actress, she took time off.
    All of this Hwood stuff plus a new relay. How does she have time for her child?

  • Rachel ()

    @Sara: She couldn’t have taken time off unless she decided to a long time ago. She had already filmed the movies. Now she’s obligated to promote 2 huge blockbusters. I don’t know how adoptions work, but I don’t think you know years in advance.
    She should spend time with the baby, but a lot of mom’s work. Do you think there’s something wrong w/ that specifically? Just asking.
    I’m not saying she’s too busy to be a mom. I’m saying she can be a far better mom if she has help, and is not exhausted from trying to do everything alone.

  • LAPerfect

    I don’t get all the hate that’s going on either. I think it’s ridiculous. If Charlize is dating Alex (and that’s a big IF), then good for her, and if they make each other happy, then why not? I certainly don’t blame either of them for wanting to stay out of the spotlight for now if it is true. Just look at the reaction today based on a short video clip from Popsugar. Do you blame them? Alex is genuinely one of the nicest people you could meet in the business, and Charlize seems to be pretty grounded as well. So good for them! They (would) make a beautiful couple, IMHO.

  • Uglypeopleinthispost

    Eww the old farts are bittered

  • Uglypeopleinthispost

    @LAPerfect: Agreed, except that I think she could do so much better, Skarsgord is what? z-listed?

  • ladybug

    @Sara: How does any working parent have time for their child, then? Admittedly, this would solve the population problem within a generation.
    Reality is, if she were the average American working stiff mom, she’d be back at work*, using daycare of some sort. It doesn’t mean they’re bad moms, it means you do what you have to.
    As for adoptions, most of them aren’t known years in advance-you can’t go, well i’ve got this going on, I only want to adopt in this time period. When the opportunity is presented and you really want it, you don’t turn it down, because you don’t know when the next opportunity is.
    She’s luckier than most, she has her mom with her and she can afford excellent help. Neither means she is a bad mother.
    @Rachel (), I think this has very little to do with AS, and everything to do with hating on CT, period. AS is just something else to go after her with.

    *Average maternity leave is 6 weeks in the US.

  • Mel

    To be clear, I’m not “hating” on anyone here. I like both Charlize and Alex. She made the choice to adopt and can get the fact that for her it can be necessary to hire people for assistance in raising her son.

    That being said, based on multiple interviews Alex has given, he has always expressed himself to be someone who is looking for a more “normal” family life. I would venture to guess that the woman he settles down with will be somewhat less famous. There was one interview I recall seeing where he even said that when it came to raising a family, he wasn’t sure if he wanted to be in LA anymore, didn’t know if that was the kind of place he’d want to raise his children.

    There is no denying that Charlize is beautiful, intelligent, talented, charitable, and did I mention gorgeous… But just because they are both attractive celebrities does not a relationship make.

    The best of luck to both of them in whatever paths they take in love, no hate for either of them from me!

    @ladybug: This is a CT post 5 days ago. Pre-AS video.
    I don’t know. Things have increased. Lame.

  • SO

    I see the AS fangurls have begun to put up their tent on CT’s posts now. Ha Ha.

  • ladybug

    @SO: This isn’t AS related, this is just trolling because they don’t like CT.

  • Sara

    @ladybug “Average maternity leave is 6 weeks in the US.”
    It doesn’t look like CT has done that. CT is no different then you or I, she could get some kind of time off. Her films aren’t released until later in the year. I understand how unpredictable adoption can be. Which makes it even a more priority to take the time to get to know her son,and her son to get to know her. I understand what you are saying. I am on the outside looking in. But I strongly believe she should spent some time with her new baby.
    “She should spend time with the baby, but a lot of mom’s work. Do you think there’s something wrong w/ that specifically? Just asking.
    I’m not saying she’s too busy to be a mom. I’m saying she can be a far better mom if she has help, and is not exhausted from trying to do everything alone.”
    Ans: There is nothing wrong with that. All she has to do is take time off to be with her new baby. It seems like she is take on more than her fair share of commitments.
    Honestly, where I come from guys do not date girls with new babies.LOL

  • SLoser

    So you can make fun and be mean about him but people can’t about her. Double standards much. I bet you’re beautiful and sweet deep, deep down inside and you look up to CT for reference for your plastic surgeon and what I should be wearing to make you feel even close. fans are crazy no celeb is better or worst off than any yes she is on top now. BUT this is HW tomorrow she caqn easily fall from grace and he can rise sky high so don’t be too petty.

  • Rachel ()

    @Sara: We don’t know that AS is dating her. Also, it’s possible that they had been dating for a while before the baby.
    I get what you’re saying, but it seems that they are in the thick of promoting her new movies, and I don’t know that she could get time off. Acting isn’t a normal job. It’s not like someone can fill in for her. The films are coming out this summer, which is close, so she can’t be like “Oh, I’ll promote it in a couple of months”.
    We also don’t know how much time she is actually spending w/ the baby. I just don’t think we have good reason to cry “bad mom”. I hope she’s bonding w/ the kid too, but I’m not going to assume the worst.

  • SO

    It’s not trolling and nothing to do with AS? Best line of the day. Man AS fangurls sure know how to get in thru the backdoor by pretending it’s all about CT.

  • Lilla

    @Rachel (): Some will never be happy. Oh well.

    I don’t know that she could take any time off right now, but maybe when she’s done promoting her movies she will. I wish her the best & hope everyone is happy & healthy.

  • nahj

    You jealous AS loons don’t know anything about the time she’s spending with her baby because she’s shielding him from the cameras idiot. Why are you bringing up what AS wants in a family? Mind your business. If Charlize had her son’s face out there for the cameras everytime she’s photographed, you would accuse her of using him for publicity. She can’t win.

    Also, she could not adopt unless she assured that she would have plenty of help and support and assistance around her since she’s a single mother. Ofcourse she’s going to have a nanny and her mother to help her. She said she takes her baby everywhere with her as she promotes her films. You have no business judging what you don’t know .

  • Liza

    @nahj: Her mother is a killer,that’s scary

  • mforman

    Sorry, but I do not think this has anything to do with the fact that we are fans of AS, because his true fans only want him to be happy, and there is absoultely no proof so far of them dating. The comments here have to do with CT and the fact something seems off.
    Why all of a sudden is JJ and other gossip site photographing CT being like the regular girl, doing everyday things, she has never, ever been seen doing any of the things we are seeing her doing lately, we used to just see her on the red carpet.
    Working moms, moms in general are awesome, but let us not kid ourselves, CT could have missed one or two events dealing with her two up and coming releases, she could have done maybe just the face to fact interviews, so she didn’t have to be away from her new baby. CT has always given the impression of not ever wanting to be upstaged by co stars, especially if they are female, and she has the talent and beauty to get away with it.
    One of the things that gets me is, is that she was with Stuart Townsend, for over 9 years, and he had repeatdely stated how they wanted a child, but now when her career isn’t as it once was, she adopts a child as a single mom.
    I think it is great that she can afford the type of care she can for her son, but to hear the reasons, like her beauty rest (which I am sure someone is going to deny), and that she is doing all of this traveling and promoting is really distrubing.
    Celebrities are not like us, their adoptions are different, no matter how many times they say they went through the same process. CT and her people made sure everything all happened very fast. There is no way she had to go to those promotional events, her first priority should have been her child and I am sure being the actress that she is, she can say no and nothing would happen to her career, she chose to put the promotional events over her son. That is very sad, because she adopted him right after he was born and the baby needs to bond with his mother as much as possible, as she needs to bond with him and that didn’t happen and from the looks of when she was swinging that carrier around, she hasn’t really learned to do even the basic things yet.
    For some reason, I feel like she wants to change her cold and unfriendly reputation now, who knows why, but I just wish the best for her son, because he is helpless and is suppossed to be relying on his mother now, not nannies. Maybe what she is trying to do will work out and her son will grow up to be a wonderful little boy.
    Nobody should loose site that he is what is most important.

  • Why Ask Me?

    Charlize has actuallystated that she has wanted a child for quite some time. None of us know for sure that she hasn’t taken her son with her when she has been doing promotion, just because he is not constantly SEEN with her does not mean he is not around. It sounds like she has a good team around her (including her mom) so she is able to carry on with her job, thats part of what mothers have to do, carry on with all their obligations, you have to learn to juggle, one handed, with 20 balls in the air! Jackson was 4 months old when CT became his mother, so the bonding would be very crucial and i can’t see her not being primarily involved with that and leaving it to her hired help. As a mom, if i had the money i would have quite happily paid someone to do a few night shifts so i could get some beauty sleep, i don’t blame CT for that at all!
    When it comes down to it, none of us know for sure what she is like as a person, or as a mother. All i know is that when you are a mom, it is a constant learning curve and no matter how much criticism you get, you criticize yourself more.
    Has there been a video of CT with the baby carrier? I have not seen her ‘swinging’ one like you say. They are pretty heavy and sometimes you have to juggle arms, i have always looked totally ungraceful carrying one!
