Charlize Theron, 32, opens up to Parade magazine while promoting her new movie, In the Valley of Elah. She tells them: “Getting pregnant doesn’t excite me, but having kids does. I know I’ll be a mother someday. It’s just that… I don’t really want to look like a whale, you know? But I’m sure the idea of something growing inside of you is pretty powerful.”

She also frankly discusses how here ladylike exterior doesn’t really match the girl living inside of her.

“I am nice and polite, but my language isn’t always ladylike. I have gotten softer over the years, but I still don’t know when to shut up. Just like my mom, I am honest and direct, and sometimes people can take that kind of harshly.”
