Charlize Theron: Leaving son is so hard

2012-03-19 22:34
 
Los Angeles - Charlize Theron admits she finds it "so hard" to be away from her newly adopted son.

The 36-year-old Snow White and the Huntsman actress had to leave baby Jackson at home while she attended last night a Human Rights Campaign gala on Sunday, and confessed it was no easy task.

She said: "He's doing great. It's very hard for me to leave the house now so you know how important this is because I was like standing at the door going, 'Ah, this is so hard!'"

Babysitting duty

Honoured with the Ally For Equality award for her advocacy work for the LGBT community, she told the audience: "Marriage equality is about more than just marriage. It's about something greater. It's about acceptance (...) I will always be your cheerleader and I will always be your friend."

Chelsea Handler hosted the event and joked that despite her aversion to kids, she has managed to maintain her friendship with Charlize.

She told E! News: "I love Charlize. She's got her little baby now, she's a mother. That was almost a reason I stopped being friends with her because I try not to be friends with too many mothers, but we worked through it."

Although she isn't quite ready to sign up for babysitting duty. She added: "I don't think anyone would ask me to babysit."
