Charlize Theron says her kids thinking she is cool is a ‘feeling no Oscar can replace’ and reveals they were ‘pretty chuffed’ over her role in animated Addams Family flick










While Charlize Theron has received various awards throughout her career,  she finds impressing her kids more rewarding than critical acclaim.

When asked about starring as Morticia in The Addams Family 2, the actress gushed that her daughters Jackson, nine, and August, six, were ‘quietly pretty chuffed’ over their mom’s latest role.

‘As a mum who, like all mothers, wants their kids to think she’s cool, it’s a feeling no Oscar can replace,’ she told The Mirror.

Speaking about the animated flick, the Bombshell star gushed that she loved the ‘relationship between’ the spooky and iconic Addams family.

‘We need to find kindness and understanding for others who might not look or talk like us. To be a part of something like this and know families will see it really resonates with me,’ the Academy Award winner told the outlet. 

She hopes the films grabs audiences ‘somewhere in the heart and makes them think a little differently about things.’

Theron also revealed that she has ‘always made sure [her children] know exactly who we were as a family’ and what their values are.

‘Kindness and treating others in the way you want to be treated is how to go through life,’ the performer said. 

Charlize adopted her eldest, Jackson, in 2012 and then her youngest, August, in 2015.

Speaking about her children to MailOnline in 2019, Charlize said: ‘I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive.

‘They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide.

‘My job as a parent is to celebrate them and to love them and to make sure that they have everything they need in order to be what they want to be.

‘And I will do everything in my power for my kids to have that right and to be protected within that.’

Speaking to Elle in 2018 about how she became a mother, Charlize admitted: ‘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.’

Charlize, who said she had a ‘strong need to be a mom,’ admits she could not have done it without her mother Gerda, who she said co-parents with her.

She said: ‘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 co-parenting my children would be a lie.’
