Charlize Theron considers leaving the US for fear of racism

Por Nina

Actress Charlize Theron said she is considering leaving the United States for the sake of her two adopted children, because she is worried about racism in the country, where "it is much more alive than people thought." Separated from actor Sean Penn since 2015, the actress is a single mother of two children, a boy, Jackson (6 years old), and a girl, August (2), adopted in South Africa.

Concerned about the issue of racism in the United States, she said that "it exists and is much more latent than people believed. We cannot continue denying it. We have to raise our voices. There are places in this country where if they offer me a job there, I would not take it," she continued. "I would not take my children to certain parts of the United States and that is quite problematic." Interviewed by Elle magazine, she pointed out that she only has her mother, Gerda, who helps her with the upbringing of her children. "I'm so lucky to have her, without her I would feel very lonely in all of this," she said.

"Many times I look at my children and tell them: if this continues, I will have to (leave the United States). Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel insecure," added the 42-year-old star, born and raised in South Africa during the apartheid era in the country. "They'll have to know that it's a different climate for them than it is for me, and how unfair it is," the Oscar winner said about her children.Theron is promoting her new comedy, "Tully", which will premiere on May 4.On the other hand, in the interview for the cover of Elle magazine, Theron spoke about the difficult process of adoption that she had to face. "I never saw the difference between raising an adopted child and a biological child. I do not feel like I'm missing anything," she said. "It was always my first choice, even when I was in a relationship."

The actress remembered that she suffered "a lot during the process". "Among the toughest moments of my life is when I presented the adoption papers; It really destroyed me emotionally," she said. "There were so many situations that did not work and one becomes fond and delusional and then devastated." Theron remembered that since childhood she always dreamed of adopting a child. "I was always aware that there are many children in the world who do not have families," the artist explained.
