Charlize Theron is talking openly about her personal life.
The 47-year-old actress spoke with Harper’s Bazaar about her October cover issue, about parenting, navigating the dating world, and her 25 years of experience in Hollywood.
“I feel like I’m in a place where it belongs,” Theron said of her career. “Working out more, I guess, isn’t going to change my level of fame. It’s always been an average ride. I’ve never been one of those people who are on Kim Kardashian level. But I feel like it’s always This is what happens.”

“I didn’t grow up in America,” Theron said, “so I always try to keep my head above water with the school system and exams, because it’s not familiar to me. My education was just so different. What my kids are doing in America. And so with being a parent comes a lot of bells and whistles I didn’t grow up with.”
The “Mad Max” star spoke about Hollywood starting her career, saying she had to be “loud” to get noticed.
“Most of my 20s and my 30s, and the way I was raised, was pretty much…” I don’t necessarily really like that person, but definitely one in my life. There were times where I knew how to act.”
With being a devoted single mom for the past decade to her two daughters: Jackson, 10, and August, 7, she has found a balance between raising her children and balancing her career. The “Monster” actress adopted her two children.

“It’s very consuming,” she said. “There are moments with my kids where, yeah, I get in the car and they’re in the back and I’m pulled over because I don’t want to lose a call. But I love it. I don’t think if I love it If not, I could have done it.”
Theron launched her production company, Denver & Delilah, in 2003. “Having absolutely no control over what you’re wearing is a big deal that really bothered me for years,” she said of her career before starting her company.
“Some guy has a fitting almost in front of you — stuff like that, it’s really short. When I started, there was no conversation around it. It was like, ‘This is what you’re wearing. ‘ And I remember one movie in particular, this male director who just kept bringing me in, fitting after fitting after fitting… and it was so obvious it had to do with my sexuality and how they f—cable me. Could film. And when I started, it was kind of the norm,” Theron explained.
Making a change in the entertainment industry was not something the actress has taken lightly for a long time.

“I don’t always get it right,” Theron said of her role as a producer, “but I’m very aware of looking at the big picture and saying, ‘Is this really the best that we do? can?'”
As well as being a single mother, balancing her career in Hollywood, she also found time to be a devoted fan of the reality show “The Real Housewives”.
“I always say to my kids, ‘Just a little bit of variety,’ and my little one will go, ‘Are you seeing Housewives again?’ And I go, ‘Yes, I am. … We’ll see a little Fellini later,'” she said.
