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? Says:

    @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.

    bs Says:

    Charlize, don’t even talk about your body 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 Says:

    @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.

  16. 16
    bs Says:

    @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 Says:

    @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 Says:


    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 Says:

    @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 ***** , unhealthy obsessed hater liar it’s much more worst.

    bs Says:

    @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.

  21. 21
    bs Says:

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

    bs Says:

    @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 Says:


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

    plz b Says:


    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?”

    shannon Says:

    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.
