Featured Article: Charlize Theron for Elle US May 2018


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)
