Charlize Theron Always Wanted to Experience Motherhood

Charlize Theron Always Wanted to Experience Motherhood

Charlize Theron dons a Salvatore Ferragamo bodysuit on the cover of InStyle‘s June issue, on newsstands May 18.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Snow White and the Huntsman actress had to share:

On aging: “I see my face and my body changing, and they’re all changes I’m OK with. Part of me understands I may not be in front of the camera forever, and maybe not just because of age, but because of me. I wouldn’t have started my own production company if I didn’t feel that way.”

On being a new mom to son Jackson: “Motherhood was something I always knew I wanted to experience. What a great opportunity for someone like me who wants to have a family … I can only hope to be 10 percent of the mom mine was to me. She encouraged me to be confident and enjoy life. That’s what I want for my son. So far I’m not surprised by anything about being a mom. It’s all pretty great – but that’s what I expected.”

On being single, meeting someone new: “I’m always open to a relationship, but I’m not putting those feelers out there now. I’m not unhappy with it, but I’m not like, ‘Oh, this is so much better than when I was in a relationship.’ I am a relationship girl. That’s kind of just how I’m made … There’s definitely something in the nature of a man and a woman that makes that challenging, but it was never a huge problem for me. I don’t live my life in a way that feels big. When you’re in my life, it’s actually very contained.”

  • seriously?

    @Lin: How is she stone cold? she is woman who knows what she wants and knows she needs to build a future not only for herself but for her son, at least she is being realistic,…..Anyways she looks beautiful and also so eloquently spoken
    I don’t understand that when a woman talks about working and stuff she is seen as cold? but when a man does it it’s sexy and he is hard working.

    Theron is BEAUTY PERSONIFIED. Seriously, if I looked like this, I’d be in a relationship all the time too! =) I admire her. Not only for her stunning Goddess-like looks but also because she’s actually talented when it comes to acting <3

  • anna

  • KS

    Huge b*tch

  • bs

    Charlize, don’t even talk about your body changing..is this why you adopted the child, because of vanity and fear of losing your body? She comes off hypocritical. For years she’s been saying she didn’t want kids, was this because she couldn’t bring herself to get pregnant and “ruin” her body? Is it only now that she is alone, that she started feeling lonely and needed a child so she finally made up her mind to adopt?

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @bs: SHUT UP. she has always wanted kids. If you followed her as much as you pretend, you would have seen at LEAST a couple of interviews where SHE SAID SO.

  • bs

    @Ugonna Wosu: No, I do not follow her around because I have a life. I also have a good memory and recall Charlize proclaiming on the Ellen Degeneris show that marriage and kids aren’t her thing. You should stop obsessing with people and then maybe you’ll be able to see and think clearly without bias.

  • bs

    @plz b: You are pathetic. Trying to get your point across by calling strangers names makes you sound intelligent and knowledgeable…not! I don’t consider hoodrats a source for my information, but thanks for trying!

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @bs:

    yes, assuming what you say about the Ellen Show is true, I should pretend she didn’t say over and over on shows like Piers Morgan, and in magazine interviews that she wanted kids. Right? You are the one speaking with bias. And if you had a life, you wouldn’t be so seriously annoyed about Char supposedly changing her mind about having kids. WTF cares anyway? She’s allowed.

  • plz b

    @bs: what a disgutsing liar she never said she didn’t want kids!!! in at least 3 interviews she talked about wanting kids, she alwys said it liar shame on you. And the one who is being obsessed by her here it’s her, since you are sticking in her threads watching her shows hypocrite bitch , unhealthy obsessed hater liar it’s much more worst.

  • bs

    @plz b: By the way, your grammar is aweful, it’s saddening. Maybe you should focus some of your energy on getting proper education, and save yourself some embarassment.

  • bs

    @Ugonna Wosu: She’s allowed to change her mind, no one said she isn’t, however it’s bad character to be hypocritical.

  • bs

    @plz b: A bit angry, aren’t we? I can hardly understand what you’re trying to say. Please learn proper English. Thanks!

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @bs:

    there is no hypocrisy. You are here to stir up trouble, and I will ignore you.

  • plz b

    @bs:

    Here are the links of her interview liar b!tch, VOGUE 2007 ” thoughts of having a family of her own one day. “I forget that this is in my blood,” she says to me. “Something is telling me that I’m going to end up on a farm again. I’ve just always felt like I want my kids to have this; I want my kids to get dirty.” …..”"Yeah,” she says. “Who knows how things will change once I have children?” http://www.vogue.com/magazine/article/charlize-theron-at-home-on-the-range/#1

  • shannon

    you guys are cold, she adopted a child in fear that she will never meet a man who would want to start a family. It happens so much these days , men want a playboy lifestyle vs. a family one. And if you have the money why not save a child ? I think it’s a beautiful thing every time, always.

  • plz b

    @bs:

    Another VOGUE 2011 Interview of her WANTING A KID “““I do want to have kids, yeah,” she says. “I always have. ”

    Lots of kids? “I don’t think about the amount so much. You have to be aware of what you can give. I don’t know where I’m going to be in five years. http://www.vogue.com/magazine/article/charlize-theron-breaking-away/#1 You wnat more liar???

  • plz b

    @bs:

    Why are you reporting my posts?? you can’t stand the truth hateful liar??

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @plz b:

    report bs’s posts. If the mods read before they delete, they can clearly see that he/she’s the one stirring trouble.

  • vbgdf

    while I guess you cant call her ugly, this standard blonde light eyed classic beauty is beyond overrated…give me the unique exotic beauties anyday please.

  • Matahari

    This is the link where Charlize talked about not wanting to look like a whale. I totally agree with her! If women can have kids without going through the ‘whale period’, that’s fantastic, don’t you think?

  • sammie

    Uganda Wosu and plz b is the same person. They both speak ebonics.

  • sammie

    and the only reason they lIKE Charlize now is because she adopted a monkey child

  • Whycantipost

    General question: Where did these ‘CT is a cold bitch’ ideas come from? The only report of ‘bitchyness’ I have ever read came from LaineyGossip (a person who thinks Gwyneth Paltrow is like Jesus reincarnated, so I take that with a grain of salt).
    Co-stars always speak highly of her and Kirsten S. seems to like her a lot, and that girl always seem tense. If CT really was a bitch, she wouldn’t be comfortable around her.
    And I don’t think ‘a cold bitch’ could maintain a 9-year long relationship, unless her partner has confidence-issues. Stuart Townsend doesn’t seem like he has those.
    And she is friends with Keanu Reeves, a guy who has been going through a lot during the past decade, adding hanging around with a bitch doesn’t really seem plausible then.

    As for the never wanted kids stuff; who cares? What does it prove? If it’s true she said that, she only changed her mind, big crime! What are you gonna do, sue her? Sue people who say they realllllyyy want kids and eventually (decide to) never have them? Because they ‘broke their promise, boohooo!’ ?

    And Sammie: monkey child? Racist much? People don’t like CT because she adopted a child, otherwise every person adopting would be famous/loved/succesful. People like her because she has talent, has humor and because she is godawfully pretty.

  • Whycantipost

    Oh, and people who say she only adopted for publicity; seriously? Adopting maybe gives her a couple of months of extra media attention, but she will be stuck with a kid for a minimum of 18 years.
    So you ppl say she is gonna raise a kid for 18 years, only because she wants a couple of months of media-attention? COME ON. That is just insane.

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @sammie:

    LOL. Really? I didn’t know I knew how! That will be news to my Nigerian Canadian family! Thanks for the info!

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @sammie:

    I’ve been a fan since 1996, Next lame story? I guess I can assume your other name is “bs”(GREAT NAME for you, btw!)?

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @vbgdf:

    while I agree that America puts too much stock in being, tall, blonde and caucasian, the fact that a woman has these traits does not mean we cannot give her credit for being beautiful. There are some blondes who are completely unnattractive, afterall. So being that way doesn’t guarantee attention.

  • maya

    @Whycantipost: Pay the trolls no attention. They only started showing up on Charlize posts once the rumors started about Alexander Skarsgard. These nerdy girls watch True Blood and fantasize about this guy, who isn’t even all that, and are so jealous of Charlize they’ll find any reason to hate.

  • Helen
