Charlize Theron may play Monster types in movies, but the Snow White & the Huntsman star lightens up considerably once you get her talking.
The actress sat down with InStyle (where she's featured on the June cover) and talked about all the domestic stuff you don't normally associate with the actress.
For starters — she's super-thrilled to be a single mom to adopted son Jackson.
"Motherhood was something I always knew I wanted to experience. What a great opportunity for someone like me who wants to have a family," she said. "I can only hope to be 10 percent of the mom mine was to me. She encouraged me to be confident and enjoy life. That’s what I want for my son. So far I’m not surprised by anything about being a mom. It’s all pretty great – but that’s what I expected.”
Charlize ended her nine-year relationship with Irish actor Stuart Townsend in January of 2010 and rather than finding a replacement boyfriend she seems to be enjoying this single stretch.
"I’m always open to a relationship, but I’m not putting those feelers out there now. I’m not unhappy with it, but I’m not like, ‘Oh, this is so much better than when I was in a relationship.’ I am a relationship girl. That’s kind of just how I’m made... When you’re in my life, it’s actually very contained.”
