Charlize Theron Adopts A Baby
|by Anonymous||reply 99||03/11/2013|
I don't care if it's a celebrity thing to adopt, anyone willing to give a home to a child is aces in my book (excluding Joan C.). The hypocritical "pro-life" assholes should try it sometime.
I'm curious as to the race of the baby considering she's S. African.

I read that the baby is African-American, R1.

Charlize Theron surely meant no harm. The actress genuinely thought she was complimenting fellow thespian Viola Davis during this year’s Newsweek Oscar roundtable when she told Davis, “You’re hot as shit.’’

For the celebrities, doing this is just as much of a career choice and an acting role as any performance they give in a movie. It's planned with other people in Hollywood, who always advocate it.
For celebrities, the acting doesn't stop when the cameras stop. This is part of their job and is part of what they get paid for. They know this.
The big secret is that many parts of their lives are constructed to affect the public. Maybe this should be on that gossip thread.

Perhaps she didn't want to have a biological child.
1. She is getting on child-bearing years. She will be 37 in a few months.
2. She no longer has a long-term partner anymore after breaking up with Stuart Townsend last year.
So I don't think the 'traditional' baby route was working out for her.

R32, she's been rumored. There was a blind item about her being into girls back when she was dating the guy from Third Eye Blind, and she has a "bff" she's always hanging on to. (Pics of them at a Disney park, IIRC.)
First thing I thought of when I heard her adopting. (And of course, Skarsgard is rumored, too; he's Ted C's "Nelly Fang", downlow gay vampire star.)

To add To R42's list and to expand on what R41 said. Her father was a rage-filled abusive alcoholic who had a history of beating her mother. I think they lived on a farm and were a bit isolated. The story is that one night he took off after Charlize in a blind drunken rage. Her mother got out a shot gun and killed him. God knows what went on in that hose.
If I had survived this sort of trauma and had a family history of alcoholism/mental illness, I'm certain I'd get sterilized.

Charlize has been through a lot and she said in the past she did not want to have children and yet was open to adoption. Considering her traumatic childhood I understood her decision to not have kids. I was surprised yet very happy for her for adopting. I think she will make a great mom.

"It's always a black baby. I read somewhere that the African-American community is resentful that black children are now raised by gay parents and single mothers."
What is wrong with adopting a kid who might not otherwise get a good home? White kids are a lot more likely to be adopted than black kids, despite people here who think it's "always" black kids who get adopted.
"Mariska Hargitay, Madonna, Brangelina, Kristen Davis, Sandra Bullock and now Charlize, all of them have African-American babies."
Not sure about some of the others, but Madonna adopted an African baby, not an African-American baby.

Nothing against adopting children of any race. But you shouldn't do it only to be politically correct. Not even to yourself. It's like gay couples getting the ones nobody else wants to adopt, using gay people as a money escape for the overburdened system.

For white women celebrities it's ever so chic to have an African-American baby. Was it Madonna who started the trend of buying black babies? Of course Madonna would not deign to have a mere American black babytoy, to she went abroad for hers. But it looks like getting one from the U.S. is becoming more and more fashionable these days.

You can apply for adoption saying you don't care which gender or race, you know? Chances then are that the kid will be black. Is it oh so chic to not specify race these days?

R65 apparently Charlize has been trying to adopt for several years. CAme close but had several let downs as many people trying to adopt go through. She's apparently thrilled now to have her son and is embracing motherhood.
She wanted kids with Stuart Townsend but apparently he wasn't into starting a family.

The baby is black because it's the HW thing to adopt black children - I have no problem with that. Look at adoption.com - there are mostly black and brown children on there, not very many whites, and NO WHITES in California to be adopted either.
OTOH, she has a huge huge crush on Michael Fassbender and wants to fuck him desperately but he only likes black and asian chicks. Kind of sucks to be the most beautiful woman in the world right now and to be rejected by a Brit who is not attracted to you because you're the wrong color.

Some of you people need a reality check. In the US if you are a single white adult and wish to adopt, you have 3 choices: a minority infant, a handicapped infant/child, or an older child, who has been sitting in the system for awhile and has failed to be adopted for any of a variety of reasons.
The bias is toward 2-parent heterosexual couples. They are the only adoptive parents who will get white babies.
