movie star Charlize Theron Recently admitted in an interview that she would give up acting for her kids if she ever needed to.
Theron, 47, is the mother of two adopted daughters, Jackson and August. The ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ star opened up about her decision to ‘participate’ in her life when a reporter asked her why it’s important to her to do something for herself.
For context, Theron has lived in the same home for 30 years and doesn’t hire any staff to help with maintenance.
“It’s my life, and I want to participate in it,” Theron explained in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “The one thing that early tragedy gave me is the realization that you don’t have forever. You just don’t. And it’s easy to be like, ‘Oh, it’s a movie,’ but then it’s another movie.” and second. And I don’t sound like I’m carrying some message on my sleeve, but I think for women, we worry [that] If we don’t work harder and we don’t try, we’ll never reach our full potential. And it’s tiring. I never feel like, ‘Oh, I might just f–king enjoy this.'”
“But as you get older, you get more perspective, and at about 50, it becomes easier. And my kids help. I love being a mom more than being an actor or a producer.” And I never thought I’d get to do that.” Say so If tomorrow someone tells me, ‘You can’t do both,’ will I be sad to quit acting? Undoubted. But that would be a no brainer for me.
Theron always knew that adoption would make her a mother. The actress grew up in apartheid South Africa and at a young age came into contact with orphanages and children in need of a family.
“Even when I was in relationships, I was always honest with my partners about what adoption would look like to my family one day,” she previously told People magazine. “It certainly wasn’t a second option for me. It was always my first.”
Theron moved to America at the age of 16 after winning a modeling contest. However, she eventually switched to acting and later producing films.
Theron told The Hollywood Reporter, “The spirit of hard work has been instilled in me.” “I guess that’s why I’ve always had a bit of a problem with modeling. There was no hard work, and I don’t mean that in an offensive way to the great models out there, but there’s a part of me that would have liked a little more. Does back breaking.”
Theron’s been behind “Mindhunter,” “Bombshell,” “The Old Guard” And many more, but these days she’s not so sure that her fame could help other people get behind her vision for movies.
“The market is really different today, and fame that worked 20 years ago, fame that was cash in the bank is different now. We’re living in the time of reality television, and god knows I can’t get enough of reality TV.” So, the market for what Kim Kardashian represents – and not in a negative way because I look at everything she does – is worth more than Meryl Streep, one of the greatest actresses working And it’s just true,” Theron said. “They have very different skills, but if you were Kim Kardashian, you’d probably be more grounded.”
This isn’t the first time Theron has put a concept to her mind, using the Kardashians as an example. “Monster” Star previously told Harper’s Bazaar that she’s never been too famous in her 25-year career as a reality TV star.
“I feel like I’m at a place where it’s at,” she told the outlet. “Working more, I guess, isn’t going to change my level of fame. It’s always been a mediocre journey. I’ve never been one of those people who’s on Kim Kardashian’s level. But I feel like is that it always happens.” That’s it.”
