Charlize Theron says she “wants a baby” & she’s open to adoption


Did you know that there’s a German edition of In Touch Weekly? I didn’t. Well, Charlize gave an interview to the German edition (I guess…?) and Charlize talks BABIES. She’s talked about babies before, of course. Back in 2009, when she was with Stuart Townsend, she said: “I’ve always known that I wanted to be a mom. I love children. I’ve always loved children. But I’m not like, ‘Oh my god, I really must have kids right now.’ I’ve never felt this pressing urge that some biological clock is ticking. We both want to be parents one day, but I’ve no idea when that will be.” And then when Charlize had her little thing with Ryan Reynolds – what it was, it only lasted a month or two – the rumor going around was that Charlize was all “I WANT BABIES” and Ryan was all “Um, we’ve only been dating for a hot minute.” Some of you didn’t believe that version of events, but this new interview with Charlize definitely shows that she’s got babies on the brain:

The actress has been single since ending her brief fling with Ryan Reynolds earlier this month, but she’s not about to let her solo status stop her starting a family!

Single Charlize Theron is so desperate to start a family, she’s considering following in the footsteps of Sandra Bullock, Angelina Jolie and Denise Richards and adopting a baby!

“I want a baby,” Charlize coos in an interview with Germany’s In Touch magazine. “If it would happen tomorrow I would still be very happy about it.”

The 36-year-old South African ended her nine-year relationship with Irish actor Stuart Townsend in 2010. She dated Ryan Reynolds earlier this summer, before that romance fizzled out — leaving Charlize single again.

But she has no problem adopting and raising her baby as a single mom, adding, “Why not? I’m open to everything in life.”

So… that doesn’t make it sound like she’s actively seeking out a baby, like she’s already started the adoption process or she’s looking for donors or something. It just sounds more like, “I’d really like a baby, that would be nice. And a Caesar salad, thank you. How does one go about acquiring those things?” But if Charlize wants to be a mom, more power to her. I hope it happens for her.

Oh, and I thought she was pregnant back in June, but I now think it was just a bad dress.

By the way, here’s the teaser commercial for Charlize’s new J’Adore Dior campaign. I like her outfit in this spot:

    All I know is that she is ROCKING that sexy smarty-pants look in the last pic–the sweater-coat with skinny jeans and the pulled-back hair with glasses–man, I wish I could pull that off. I’ve always liked her acting, so I hope she gets the baby if that’s whats he wants. As a mom myself, I know I could not handle parenting alone–my husband is a super dad–but I also think that if I had the financial resources she likely has, I could pay for house cleaning and cooking and errand-running, and so being a single mom would be much easier.

    After swimming up stream in the spawning pools of Hollywood, I can certainly understand where adoption would be preferable and probably a better choice. After all, there aren’t may Orlando Blooms in town and even he left for New Zealand.

  3. tiny teacher says:

    I love her entire outfit in the last picture. Very chic!

  4. jesikabelcher says:

    I bet she and Keannu Reeves would make BEAUTIFUL KIDS!!! They were so good together in the “Devil’s Advocate”!!

  5. lucy2 says:

    I like her, she’s a talented actress, and she’s really stunning.
    I get the impression that if and when she does want kids, she’ll just do it on her own terms, whether she’s single or not.

  6. really says:

    BEAUTIFUL! She would make a great mum!

  7. Turtle Dove says:

    *sigh* I like her and RR and the baby notion. I like RR and Sandra and Louis. It’s all too much… *eats bon-bon*

    I woke up today and felt good about myself… then I saw Charlize in her ultra thin, trés chic glory running up those stairs.

  8. danielle says:

    I’m oddly fascinated by her. I think because sometimes, and in alot of still shots, I think she only looks so so. Then I see her in motion in a movie and think she’s one of the most beautiful women in the world. It’s odd.

  9. Rita says:

    @Turtle Dove

    Come on honey. If you were sprinting up a stair case wearing sunglasses that covered half your face and a $500 pair of shoes with your blouse open to your navel, I know you would put those tres chic glory thingys to shame. I bet you’d even look great in her jeans…not sure of the brand.

  10. Jenny says:

    If the US version of intouch is crap, I would think all of its foreign cousins are just as slimy (same publisher–Bauer), so I doubt she gave them an interview.

    However, if she wants children, that sounds cool, but wasn’t some tabloid story out a couple of weeks ago that said she did not want children and that is why she broke up with someone? Again, tabloids really should read each others copy since they are always writing conflicting stories.

  11. John Wayne Lives says:

    Is it too late to hope for Charlize and Keanu?

  12. Bre says:

    her babies will be beautiful just like her! I really like her but sometimes she gives off that bitchy attitude!!

  13. Turtle Dove says:

    *hugs Rita* Thanks pal.

  14. jenna says:

    Yeah right as if she spoke to German In Touch Weekly sounds like a fabricated interview to me. And I didn’t buy the Ryan Reynolds stuff too. Tabloids always make a woman over 30 look desperate for babies.

    Anyway, I love how she’s rocking the glasses in the last picture. She looks great in glasses. Wear them more often.

    Anyway she’s not just a beauty, but a great actress. Can’t wait for Young Adult to come out. I hear she’s great in it and could land another Oscar nom.

    I feel the same way about Ava Gardner. Still photos don’t do her beauty justice.

    Although I think Charlize is the most photogenic actress around. Even in candids wearing jeans she looks elegant. It’s actually kind of annoying.

  16. blonde on the dock says:

    She is gorgeous! Good actress too.

  17. mark says:

    German inTouch differs from the american version only in the way that they leave people out who are not famous here.

    Ironically, they always include the Kardashians, even though nobody in the US seems to know why they are famous, either.

    I, too, doubt that Theron would give them an interview, maybe she was qouted on something she said on a show or at an exhibit or a fashion show or whatever.

  18. dd says:

    she looks like SJ wich make sence that rayen will like her..

    but a better virsion of her

  19. Latisse says:

    Alright, Imma call her out for acting superior to all those sad sad women who are all about, uh-oh my biological clock is ticking…and then the minute she breaks up with her hot piece and is out of a 9 yr relationship that she felt secure enough in to superiorly forecast future babies, she’s all I NEED BABIES NOW AND I DON’T CARE HOW I GET THEM.

    Sounds like someone’s biological clock JUST started ticking.

    Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock Charlize.

  20. Sara says:

    She could always find a guy to donate and actually get pregnant. Maybe a friend or an ex boyfriend she still cares for(as a friend). You can still have child without the romantic/marriage attachment as long as both people want it. Adoption is always great too!

  21. Bre says:

    Hey CHARLIZE you can have my hubby for a couple of days so he can inpregnate you!! LOL (SERIOUSLY)

  22. lrm says:

    god she is ridiculously gorgeous….speechless.
    and yea, that is w/o the fact that she is also smart and talented and by all accounts, a non diva….
    This is how it’s done.
    Like cate blanchett, charlize has class, style and dignity.

  23. taksi says:

    Wait…when did she and Stuart Townsend break-up?

  24. MooHoo says:

    in touch is owned by a german publisher far as I know – bauer or something – hey, you should know this!

  25. Denise says:

    Seriously! If I can’t have Keanu, then I would totally like to see him with Charlize. This would be too awesome.

  26. Gypsy says:

    Charlize already has a boyfriend, you won’t see him being photographed with her because he’s got this wholesome “money-making” image and he stated that after the movie business he wants to be a politician and don’t want any scandals.

    She got rid of Stuart Townsend because she fell in love on a movie set and decided that even a secret love was better than what she had.

    There is a video tape of her telling that person “I love you”, while Stuart was at home.

    *it’s a public secret*

  27. Camille says:

    Charlize and RR would have made the cutest kids.

  28. Ramona Q says:

    Beautiful, classy, talented, smart!
    How Hollywood movie stars are at their best.

  29. Green_Eyes says:

    This woman is just gorgeous, and her acting is amazing! She does totally rock that last outfit and the one in the teaser….. Am I the only one though that thinks she slightly…key word slightly resembles a young Sharon Stone in that last photo… Charlize is a true beauty in her own right as is Sharon… And never have thought a resemblance and still really don’t..except for that last photo.. Good for Charlize, she’s an intelligent woman w/ an income, healthy, and still young, think she would be an awesome mom! She has such a close relationship w/ her mom as Angelina and Sandra had w/ theirs… So you just know they do not take motherhood lightly. I guess I should say close healthy relationships w/ their moms…. Not crazed what can my kids bring in bad values and all relationships like the “Lowbrands and Karbrandians”….

  30. Bre says:

    Gypsy u are full of bull, do you know charlize personally? I don’t think so, and where is that video u are talking about?

  31. jenna says:

    Yeah right Gysp. Anyway, I heard her ex bf Stuart was a jerk, unprofessional and a cokehead. That explains why he keeps getting fired. She says she is single.

  32. Anonymous says:

    I love Charlize. If she adopts, I bet the baby will be half black.

  33. Lonnie Chapman says:

    Charlie Theron, I would Love to take You out to the U.S. MARINE CORPS BALL. I was watching a TV program earlier in the month of Aug and You had mentioned that You no longer had a Boyfriend.
    Well I could use a date to the Marine Corps Halloween it comes around in early Nov. Of this year if you would like to go.
