The gorgeous Charlize Theron radiates on the October cover of Max magazine.
Theron was shot by Bruno Dayan for the issue. The actress chats it up with the publication about her South African roots, moving to LA after being unsuccessful model, motherhood, her private time and much more.
On her heritage:
“Afrikaners are pure, of German descent, Boer and Dutch. I love South Africa. I commit myself by such in thousands of social causes, the same as Mandela and Mr. Mthombeni, activist mayor of the province Umkhanyakude, the poorest of the country.”
On her personal down time:
“When I get home, I put on my sweatpants and feed my dogs. Back to being normal, I do what everyone does.”
On moving to Los Angeles at 18-years-old:
“It is thanks to you and the world of Italian fashion that I realized that I was not liked.”
On being a mom to son Jackson :
“I always wanted to have children. Recently my mother found a letter I wrote when I was 8 years old, where I asked her to take me to the orphanage because I wanted to adopt a little brother. So it’s not been a decision taken lightly. When I hold my baby in my arms I forget every problem. I love it, it makes me gentle and serene.”
