Snow White and the Huntsman actress Charlize Theron shocked quite a few people earlier this year, when she revealed that she had adopted a baby boy called Jackson. Now, Charlize has been discussing her new baby, admitting that she hopes to raise him in a similar way to how she was raised by her mother.
Theron explained to Vogue, “I’ve always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I’ve always known I wanted a family. I don’t think my mom could wait any more! Jackson is incredible, the greatest gift. He is the coolest kid ever.”
She added, “I hope to be like my mom, 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 own person and own independence.”
Charlize Theron is next set to appear on the big screen, starring alongside Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Guy Pearce, in the Ridley Scott directed movie Prometheus, which is set to be released in the UK on June 1 and then released in the US a week later on June 8.
