Charlize Theron Reveals What Happened During the Adoption Process of Her 2 Kids

Charlize Theron strikes a pose in Elle magazine’s May 2018 issue, on newsstands April 24.

Here’s what the Tully star had to share with the mag:

On her career: “If you look at my career, I have done more work in realism than the glamour stuff. It’s what I wanted to build my career on and why I fought so hard to not just play the ingénue or the girlfriend.”

On going through the adoption process: “I struggled mentally through the adoption process. Some of my lowest points in my life were dealing with the first time I filed; it really took an emotional toll. There were so many situations that didn’t work out, and you’d get attached and have all your hopes up and then just get crushed.”

On racism in the US: “I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. But racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal. There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn’t take it. I wouldn’t travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that’s really problematic.”

On co-parenting with her mom, Gerta: “I knew that I would have to have my mom help me if I was going to do this as a single parent. To not acknowledge her coparenting my children would be a lie.”

    Why do none of these liberals put the blame of racism on the shoulders of Barry, who did nothing but try to play the race card to divide us for 8 years? STFU and stick to playing make believe

    Yeah, because we need to be educated about race by some white trash farm girl from that joke of a ‘settlement’ called South Africa, who only has a career because she happens to be the white beauty ideal.

    A farm girl that, I bet, did not even graduate highschool. The rest of us cannot just smile our way through 1% with our tits out.

    So go on adopt as many black black babies as you can just to fit in with the rest of Hwood idiots and compensate for your self-hatred. No matter how much fame or money you accumulate, you’re still just a vacuous bimbo whose father was a lowly drunk.
