Charlize Theron Talks About Being the Mom to 'Two Small Black Girls'

Charlize Theron is opening up about representation in Hollywood and how it’s personal to her.

The 44-year-old Oscar-winning actress is the mom of two young girls – Jackson, 8, and August, 4.

“I want more representation, just selfishly, for my own girls. I want that for the world as well, but of course, it starts with the fact that I’m a mom to two small Black girls, and I want them to grow up in a world where they see themselves, where there is an awareness that they can be whomever they want to be because they see it,” Charlize said in an interview with Variety. “And that’s not just in cinema, that’s in life, too. I want to surround them in a world where they feel they belong and they can shine and they can live to their full potential.”

Charlize says she plans on calling out movie studios and media companies that don’t fulfill the promises that they’ve made amid the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I think call them out, and I think we’re at a place now where we feel brave enough to do that,” Charlize said. “If we have to involve some shaming, then that’s what we have to do. If we are silent, even if we’re not the ones not making the right decisions, and we are silent, we are just as culpable, and we have to use our voices. And if we know of situations where we know people are not fully doing the potential that they have to reimagine this world that we’re talking about, and they’re not actively and proactively doing that, then we have to call them out on it. That is our responsibility.”

In the same interview, Charlize explained the reason why she has never done a Marvel movie.

Charlize Theron Shares Rare Photo with Daughter Jackson on 'Mad Max' Set

Charlize Theron has shared a rare photo of her daughter Jackson, taken on the set of the 2015 movie Mad Max: Fury Road.

The Oscar-winning actress is taking a look back at the making of the movie to celebrate its fifth anniversary. The film was released in theaters on May 15, 2015!

The photo that Charlize shared shows her with her Furiosa makeup still on and she’s sitting in a car with Jackson resting on her chest.

“I became a mom right before we started shooting. At least my child will forever have the fun fact of ‘I spent most of the first year of my life in a war rig’ (special appearance by my incredible costumer Inge Hough),” Charlize captioned the photo on Instagram.

Back in December, Charlize opened up about how she’s raising two daughters now, not a daughter and a son.

Charlize Theron Explains the Reason Why She Revealed She's Raising Two Daughters Now

Charlize Theron revealed in a recent interview that she’s raising two daughters, not a daughter and a son. Charlize said her daughter Jackson, “looked at me when she was three years old and said: ‘I am not a boy! So there you go!”

In an interview with Pride Source, Charlize spoke about her daughter’s journey.

She was asked, “I’m curious if having a daughter who happens to be transgender influences your decisions when it comes to taking on the LGBTQ characters you do or, for that matter, don’t.” Charlize responded, “Well, this is all pretty new for us, so it hasn’t really kind of come into question. I don’t really necessarily know if it will.”

She continued, “My daughter’s story is really her story, and one day, if she chooses, she’ll tell her story. I feel like as her mother, for me, it was important to let the world know that I would appreciate it if they would use the right pronouns for her.”

Charlize continued, “I think it became harder for us the older she got that people were still writing about her in the wrong pronouns, and also I was still talking about her in the press using the wrong pronoun. It really hurt her feelings. I don’t want to be that mom, and that was really why I said what I said a while back.”

And about why Charlize has not publicly spoken about her daughter since, she said, “I haven’t really talked about it ever since, again, because outside of just asking that respectfully of the press – and the world, hopefully – the rest is really private and it’s her story, and it’s really up to her to decide if she wants to share that.”

On the subject of both her kids, Charlize also shared, “One of my daughters (4-year-old August) is convinced that she’s gonna be married five times and it’s gonna be three boys and two girls, and I just love that she has the freedom to think that way. God knows what it’s going to be, but I love that she feels safe enough to explore in her little-girl brain that anything is possible and that she’s gonna go and discover that for herself.”

Charlize Theron Says She Is Raising Two Daughters, Not a Boy

Charlize Theron is opening up about her children.

The Tully actress confirmed that she originally adopted her seven-year-old, Jackson, thinking she was a boy.

“I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive. They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide,” she went on to explain.
