Charlize Theron has revealed how she has been raising her 7-year-old son as a girl since he was only 3, letting him wear dresses and other female items.
Photos have emerged of the child wearing dresses and skirts with long, braided hair.
“Yes, I thought she was a boy, too,” the actress told the Daily Mail. “Until she looked at me when she was three years old and said: ‘I am not a boy!’”
“So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive,” she added.
“They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide.”
She then defined parenting as simply celebrating her children as they want to be instead of being a guide to direct them.
“My job as a parent is to celebrate them and to love them and to make sure that they have everything they need in order to be what they want to be,” she expressed. “And I will do everything in my power for my kids to have that right and to be protected within that.”
She laughed: “You can blame my mom for the fact I don’t know any better! You know, I grew up in a country where people lived with half-truths and lies and whispers and nobody said anything outright, and I was raised very specifically not to be like that.
“I was taught by my mom that you have to speak up; you have to be able to know that, when this life is over, you’ll have lived the truth you’re comfortable with, and that nothing negative can come from that.”
