Charlize Theron has revealed some hilarious details about her adorable son Jackson, 2. The first-time mom also claims that her little boy is a Republican! Click inside to WATCH Charlize’s interview.
Charlize Theron, 38, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote her new movie, A Million Ways To Die In The West. During her interview, she finally opened up about her son Jackson, who is currently in his terrible two’s. So, why does she think he’s a Republican?
Charlize Theron Says Son Jackson Is A Republican
How could anyone know that their 2-year-old has already developed a political opinion?
According to Charlize, and her A Million Ways To Die In The West co-star Seth MacFarlane, it’s all in her son Jackson’s decision making.
During their interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Charlize said that Seth nicknamed Jackson “the little Republican” because he is always saying “no.”
“[Jackson] great. Seth calls him ‘the little Republican’ because he’s just always saying no,” Charlize joked. “No Seth. No. Mama, No. No. It’s a lot of that.”
It’s rare for Charlize to be so open about her son, so it was exciting to hear this little tidbit about his life. And his personality sounds just as adorable as his looks are!
Charlize admitted that even though her son is “a little slow on his speech,” he’s definitely got his “no’s” down pat.
However, we wonder how Charlize’s boyfriend, Sean Penn, feels about that nickname. As you know, Sean is a diehard liberal who often travels the world as an anti-war activist.
Of course, Sean also must know that Jackson’s nickname is all in good fun!
Jackson Recognizes His Mom On Billboards
Charlize told other entertaining stories about her toddler — like when he adorably recognizes his mom on a billboard.
“I don’t know if he understands what I do, but he definitely knows when he sees the billboards with the posters for [‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’]. He knows that’s me,” said Charlize.
Even if he doesn’t understand his actress mom’s job just yet, at least he recognizes her in a cowboy hat. How adorable!
