ELLE US May 2018 cover star Charlize Theron opens up to her good friend Chelsea Handler about everything from her career, to co-parenting with her mother, to racism in the U.S., in the May issue that will hit newsstands April 24th. Mario Sorrenti shot the covers with styling by George Cortina.
Theron, who adopted her two children – Jackson (Jacks) and August (Auggie) – gained 35 pounds for her latest role in Tully, where she plays an overwhelmed and over-it pregnant mother of two. In the interview with Handler, who has famously chosen “otherhood” – aka not having children – Theron shares her thoughts on parenting, her career, and more.
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 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.”
On 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 raising two black children:
“They need to know where they come from and be proud of that. But they’re going to have to know that it’s a different climate for them than it is for me, and how unfair that is. If I can do something about that, of course I’m going to.”
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.” (source)

On dealing with trolls on social media:
· Gigi Hadid: “Most of it is just nonsense. But it can still hurt. Nowadays, people are quick to say, “I used to love Gigi’s body, and now she just gave in.” But I’m not skinny because I gave in to the industry. When I had a more athletic figure, I was proud of my body because I was an amazing volleyball player and horseback rider. But after discovering that I have Hashimoto’s [an autoimmune disease], I needed to eat healthy and work out. It was weird as a teenager, dealing with this when all of my friends could eat McDonald’s and it wouldn’t affect them.”
On being body-shamed for being “too big” and “too small”:
· Blake Lively: “You’ve been on both sides of it. You were body-shamed for being “too big” when you first started modeling. And now you’re body-shamed for being “too skinny.””
· Gigi Hadid: “If I could choose, I would have my ass back and I would have the tits I had a few years ago. But, honestly, we can’t look back with regret. I loved my body then, and I love my body now. Whoever is reading this, I want you to realize that three years from now you will look back at a picture from this time period and be like: “Wow, I was so hot. Why did I feel so bad about myself because of some stupid thing someone said?””
On re-touched images:
· Blake Lively: “It’s so important for young people not to compare themselves with what they see online. It’s our job as actors and/or models to be in shape. We have access to gyms and trainers and healthy food. And then on top of that, 99.9 percent of the time the images are Photoshopped. I’m guilty myself of being at a photo shoot and saying, “That looks terrible on me.” And they’re like, “We’ll fix it.” And you’re so relieved.”
· Gigi Hadid: “It’s my experience that your body will grow and change, and there’s always beauty in it, no matter what.”
· Blake Lively: “So true. It’s fun to try on the trends and enjoy the fantasy aspect of fashion and beauty. But my dream is for all images to have a little asterisk next to them with a caption that reads, this photo has been retouched. Just so there’s a gentle reminder that, hey, this isn’t real life. Think of editorials or ads as a painting, an art form. I mean, that’s definitely not how we wake up looking every single day of our lives.”
On advice Gigi received from her mother, Yolanda Hadid, when she started modeling:
· Gigi Hadid: “She always said that with any photographer, no matter who it is, you can speak up if you’re uncomfortable. And I’ve done that. Obviously, when I was younger, there were times where, you know, things happen quickly on the set. Someone will all of a sudden say, “Oh, you wouldn’t mind…” It’s about learning your power and knowing when to protect yourself.”

In the May issue of Redbook magazine, on newsstands April 17, cover star Bryce Dallas Howard (photographed by Yu Tsai), talks about swapping her infamous heels for boots in her upcoming film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the ‘astronomically different’ pay between male and female celebs and how even her dad Ron Howard was shocked by it, and being inspired by #TimesUp, to ask for what she’s worth.
On swapping her infamous heels for boots in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: “The first film for me was so much more challenging, but I didn’t realize it until I had boots on! Claire’s a girl who can totally sprint in heels, but maximum effort in boots is much easier.” As for herself, Bryce says, “I can do it, but do I want to?”
On the ‘astronomically different’ pay between male and female celebs and how even her dad Ron Howard was shocked: “I’m not a spender. I live in a three-bedroom house— in fact, we just downsized. I know that we’re privileged; we don’t have to worry about paying our rent or our medical bills. But I wish people knew that this is what the life of most successful female celebrities is. What we get paid is totally, completely, astronomically different than what male celebrities get paid. And for women of color, it’s a hundred times worse. Even my dad [Director Ron Howard] has been shocked at how expensive it is to be a woman in the industry. You’re told that it’s important to have a manager as well as an agent, and for a guy that’s not as important. That’s 20% out of your paycheck rather than 10%.”
On being inspired by #TimesUp, and asking for what she’s worth: “I’ve been [wimpy] about it in the past. I didn’t want people to think I wasn’t grateful for opportunities. I also get scared off by every threat during a negotiation. They’ll say, ‘We’ll just have to find someone else,’ and I back off. You can’t do that.”
