Charlize Theron isn’t really one to share intimate details about her private life, so it comes as a surprise that she opens up about her newborn son, Jackson and her life as a mother in the British edition of Vogue magazine.
The South African beauty talks about why she decided to adopt as a single mother and who of course was her inspiration behind it as well as her life as a model and her vulnerability as an actress. Here are some snippets:
She‘s always wanted to be a mom: ‘I’ve always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I’ve always known I wanted a family.’
Her mom pressured her too: ‘I don’t think my mom could wait any more!’
Jackson: ‘Jackson is incredible, the greatest gift,’ she added. ‘He is the coolest kid ever.’
Who she admires: ‘I hope to be like my mom,’ she told the magazine. ‘Fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my ownperson and own independence.’
Vulnerability: “All my characters have to be people with a capacity for vulnerability, a weakness. I have never met a human being who doesn’t have vulnerability.”
Born a decade too late to really make it as a model: ‘I was too tall, too big, too late for the supermodel look of the Eighties. Kate Moss and all the tiny, grungy girls had just become fashionable, and I didn’t fit the bill.’
Diet and exercise: ‘I’m sure there are women who never have to worry about what they eat. But I do. I exercise a lot, and I hike a lot. My mom and I hike at least three times a week.’
