Charlize Theron & Matthew McConaughey Tell 'Parade' Why They Love Teachers!
Here’s what the Kubo and the Two Strings co-stars had to share with the mag:
McConaughey on his Just Keep Livin Foundation: “Students who participate in JKL’s program say it provides a safe haven from street violence and a respite from the isolation of sitting at home. It’s a place for kids who aren’t on a team to have a team.”
Theron on her Africa Outreach Project: “Everything that Matthew is saying right now is exactly what African children tell me. The stories are so similar. AIDS is the number one killer of adolescents in sub-Saharan Africa. And AIDS is the number two killer of adolescents in all the rest of the world.”
Theron on great teachers: “I think sometimes [teachers] come in completely surprising packages. The teachers that I really connected with were so odd. That’s a real talent and a real skill. We don’t appreciate teaching as we really should.”
