Charlize Theron Adopts A Baby

She named him Jackson.

by Anonymousreply 9903/12/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 103/14/2012

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

Mazeltov!

It's great that she adopted an American child who needed a home, instead of buying a baby from a country with lax adoption laws.

She named him Jackson!!??

by Anonymousreply 803/14/2012

Yes. The full name is Jackson Jackson.

Now all she has to do is marry Keanu and our world will be complete.

R13 she probably had to announce it if she ever wanted to leave the house with him. At least she did't get a People cover and splashy layout. She just made an announcement so she can go about living her new life as a mom.

Classy way to do it.

by Anonymousreply 1503/14/2012

R13? If she had suddenly shown up with a child, don't ya think people would've noticed?

by Anonymousreply 1603/14/2012

She's fucking Alexander Skarsgard and was married (?) to Stewart Townsend.

I like her taste in men, if not baby names.

Never married

[bold]What Charlize Theron Doesn’t Get About Black Hollywood[/bold]

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.’’

She does bedhead and ugly first scene and I don't buy it.

They mentioned that Charlize adopted a baby that is African-American in the NY Daily News today, r38.

"Beautiful people should procreate. Ugly people should adopt."

She may be beautiful, but there is some serious ugliness in her gene pool.

Best wishes to her and the new baby.

A word from Chris Rock:

by Anonymousreply 4503/16/2012

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.)

by Anonymousreply 4603/16/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 5003/16/2012

Does anyone know how this is going over in South Africa?

What R48 said. That kind of trauma can put a person off biological kids.

by Anonymousreply 6003/17/2012

"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.

Anyone know when she actually started the adoption process and when she got the baby?

by Anonymousreply 6503/17/2012

Charlize is a white South African woman of a certain age. She'd be very unlikely to adopt a Black baby.

R66, that is such bullshit.

How would we know that r65? Come on.

by Anonymousreply 6803/18/2012

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.

She's the prom queen. She is hot. That's the one thing she has going for her. She is even told that no one aged as well as her, and they're only 37.

The movie is fantastic!

by Anonymousreply 7303/24/2012

These threads are hilarious. If they breed, they are selfish and should adopt. If they adopt white, they are racist. If they adopt black, they are just being PC and ultimately racist. Oh, and now adopting a special needs kid is homophobic or something.

I know, I know, pointless bitchery...

by Anonymousreply 7403/24/2012

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're hot as shit?" What a stupid thing to say. Charlize Theron sounds like an incredible idiot.

by Anonymousreply 7503/24/2012

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?

You also sound like an idiot.

by Anonymousreply 7603/24/2012

And r74, if they don't have any kids at all then they are selfish, lazy, narcissistic careerists.

by Anonymousreply 7803/24/2012

"if they don't have any kids at all then they are selfish, lazy, narcissistic careerists."

Acutally, I find child-free actresses admirable. In an interview Helen Mirren was asked if she ever regretted not having children and she said no, she very much valued her freedom. Good for her!

by Anonymousreply 7903/24/2012

JFC, what a bunch of cunts...

Perhaps they adopted black babies since they're the hardest to place. Sad to say, but most white couples want a baby that resembles them. Ethnic-looking babies are much harder to place.

by Anonymousreply 8003/28/2012

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.

Well, she's comforting herself by banging Alexander Skarsgard, so she's probably not TOO broken up over it.

And r82 I posted a pic of her with the baby in r63. Not black.

She's not aging well. Sure she's slim but she's starting to look hard.

The baby in r63 is not Jackson. It's a friends baby.

by Anonymousreply 8905/06/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 9005/06/2012

I'm sure that doesn't apply to millionaire celebrities who can get any kind of baby they want. Rosie O'Donnell is a lesbian and adopted white babies.
