Charlize Theron Threw Emily Blunt A Baby shower

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 2.17.34 PM

It’s pretty nice to have FAMOUS FRIENDS!

Charlize Theron threw a baby shower at her Hollywood Hills home for Emily Blunt on Sunday, and it sounds very private and very sweet.

Blunt, who’s expecting baby no. 2 with husband John Krasinski, wore a printed sundress and looked very happy as she celebrated with her The Huntsman: Winter’s War costar and friends. Friend and actress A.J. Johnson was there, and posted this sweet pic on Instagram, captioning it, “An afternoon of love, laughs and friendship celebrating a special piece of my [heart] #EmilyBlunt with hostess with the mostess @charlizeafrica.”

AWWW. We love y’all, too!

No word on the baby’s gender, and there’s evidence to suggest a boy or girl. First, Blunt was presented with a cake that was frosted pale-blue and topped with yellow ducks (maybe boy?) but then an eyewitness said  “Everything at the party was done in shades of light pink. There were pink balloons and light-pink floral centerpieces. It was very low-key.”

What do YOU think the gender of the baby is?! Weigh in below!

Charlize Theron: “Pretty People Don’t Always Get The Best Movie Roles.”

1620

Yes, Charlize Theron. Life is TOUGH for pretty people.

The actress graced the cover of the current issue of British GQ, basically defending her South African origins and her right for meaty roles. And hey, I don’t blame her. But what GQ has let us see (the whole interview isn’t online yet) not vulnerable or particularly interesting. But don’t trust my dumb opinion, YOU be the judge…

On breaking out of being typecast: “Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that’s the end of the story. How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, f***ing, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first.”

On aging: “We live in a society where women wilt and men age like fine wine. And, for a long time, women accepted it. We were waiting for society to change, but now we’re taking leadership. It would be a lie to say there is less worry for women as they get older than there is for men… It feels there’s this unrealistic standard of what a woman is supposed to look like when she’s over 40.”

On South Africa: “I love my country. And it’s very hard for South Africans to believe that, because I left and speak in an American accent. I have a very, very strong connection to my country and to its people. It’s the mother that might have abandoned me, in a weird way, but not all the way. I’m not having a pity party, but I’m constantly trying to win its love back.”

Charlize Theron Clears Up That Whole “Ghosting Sean Penn” Thing.

CT-cover

Pretty good interview with Charlize Theron alert!

Unlike most fluffy interviews that kind of say nothing and cater to the star’s latest project, this WSJ interview was funny, interesting and left Charlize looking real and vulnerable…which is, a nice change. The one caveat is that I don’t think she’s being completely honest when she talks about Sean Penn, but probs because they’re going to promote their movie together in just a few months, and that could get awkward. Here are the highlights of the interview (note that Charlize can’t say ANYTHING nice about Tom Hardy):

Demanding equal pay to Chris Hemsworth on The Huntsman: “Look, when I saw that Jennifer Lawrence made what she made in comparison to Bradley Cooper, I was definitely shocked… The way people have been writing about it, it sounds like the Sony hack was what motivated me. My feeling would have still been, If we’re going to do it again, shouldn’t we start on equal footing? Because, trust me, we weren’t on equal footing there.”

Clashing with Tom Hardy during Mad Max: “From what I hear, he’s not like that on every movie—I hear he’s had good experiences. Maybe the movie is what it is because we struggled so much with each other, and those characters had to struggle so much with each other. If we were chum-chum, maybe the movie would have been 10 times worse.”

Growing up in South Africa: “I have a lot of things I should probably sort out in therapy about my relationship with my country. Because it’s affected me way more than I’ve ever acknowledged. And it was only when I got older that I started realizing that I had a lot of anger; there was a lot of unresolved stuff—apartheid, health care, AIDS, poverty—that still very much affects me… It makes you realize that the circumstances of your formative years, it leaves a real scar—it marks you. It’s the one thing that gets me really angry, really emotional. It’s a lot of f—ing suffering, and unnecessary suffering. And just people getting the s— kicked out of them for a very, very long time,” Theron says, overcome by a rush of tears. She breathes deeply, trying to hold them back. “Yeah. Sorry.”

Wanting more children: “I always knew I wanted more kids… I don’t know. But I always knew I wanted more than one. Always. When you’re with somebody and it comes to kids, you can’t bulls—t. And so I was always very honest with Sean that I wanted to have more kids. And he was very supportive.”

Stories about Sean Penn adopting Jackson: “We were very, very new in a relationship. The stories saying that Sean was going to adopt Jackson and all of that were not true. It’s not something that happens in 18 months. You can’t do that to a child. So there was an understanding that I was a single mom with a very young boy who I had to put in a situation where he understood that Mommy dates but that he does not have a father, you know what I mean? You have to be very careful and very honest about that stuff. And Sean was great with all of that. And in my honesty about wanting to have more kids, there was an understanding that a relationship had to go somewhere before it was going to be—what you hope for, which ultimately did not happen. I couldn’t foresee that, but that stuff takes time, and I think it’s my responsibility as a mother to protect my child from that. And so we had a very clear understanding. He knew that I was thinking about filing for another adoption but that we weren’t filing together.” She laughs. “My publicist’s going to kill me; I’m already saying too much.”

She claims she didn’t ghost Penn: “There is this need to sensationalize things. When you leave a relationship there has to be some f—ing crazy story or some crazy drama. And the f—ing ghosting thing, like literally I still don’t even know what it is.” She shrugs and shakes her head. “It’s just its own beast. We were in a relationship and then it didn’t work anymore. And we both decided to separate. That’s it.”

Charlize reportedly cried at several points in this interview, when she was talking about her kids, and Penn and South Africa. And I dig it- it actually feels REAL. You can read the full WSJ. Magazine piece here. ENJOY!
