Charlize Theron Won't Shy Away from Dark Roles, Even as a Mother

Even though she now has a young child, Charlize Theron says won’t be sheltering him from the darker things in the world, nor will she be shying away from taking tougher roles that allow her to explore them.

“I think it’s a personal thing, but for me having a child only emphasizes how much more I want to explore real issues and things that really matter, and darkness is one of those things that I don’t think that I can veer away from just because I have a child,” Theron, 38, told reporters Thursday at the world premiere of her latest film, A Million Ways to Die in the West in Westwood, California, where she walked the red carpet with steady date Sean Penn by her side.

Theron, who stars in the raunchy comedy western, and who adopted son Jackson, now 2, in 2012, says becoming a mother makes her want to have a stronger understanding of why people behave the way they do.

“There are things that he’s never, never going to see, but I feel like that creativity and that interest – when you have a child you become almost more obsessed with wanting to know why people do bad things,” she said, laughing. “It doesn’t at all make me want to go, ‘I’m just going to close my eyes and be naïve about it.'”

For now, the South African-born actress and Academy Award winner says her priorities are parenting, which far outpaces her acting. She will leave her work and character exploration on the set.

“Obviously he’s not going to see any of that stuff until he’s way older, and my work really is my work and then he’s that priority,” Theron told PEOPLE. “My work comes way below him so, even though I have all of those interests and I want to go and explore all of that stuff, it’s when I have time for that.”

Jenna Dewan-Tatum Talks Motherhood

Saturday, May 17, 2014

JENNA Dewan-Tatum has revealed how she juggles motherhood with her Hollywood career.

The actress — who’s busying shooting hit show The Witches of East End — raises 11-month-old daughter Everly with husband Channing Tatum.

Jenna says she brings Every on set so she can spend quality time with her little girl.

“Last season she was in the trailer 24/7 because I was running back and forth breast-feeding,” Jenna tells Life & Style magazine.

“Now she goes to the park or does something fun, then she’ll come and see me for a couple of hours at lunch.

“We call it ‘Everly’s trailer’ because it’s completely baby-proofed. We have mats on the floor and toys hanging from the ceiling!

“She gets so excited to be there!”

The “consciously uncoupled” couple apparently still live together.

Documents filed by Gwyneth Paltrow in a case against an alleged stalker offer a telling detail about her relationship with Chris Martin.

While Paltrow, 41, announced their amicable split via her Goop website in March, it appears that she and Martin, 37, still live together, according to court documents filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by PEOPLE.

Paltrow sought and received a civil harassment restraining order against a 45-year-old man from Deer Park, Texas, who must stay away from her and her family for three years.

In that court order – which seeks protection for Paltrow and her two children, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7, – Martin is also listed, with the words “lives with petitioner” handwritten on the document.

The Academy Award-winning actress and Coldplay frontman, who wed in 2003, have been seen together repeatedly since announcing their split.

On Thursday, they were photographed, albeit separately, at a launch party in Los Angeles for Goop contributor Vicky Vlachonis’s new pain-relief book, The Body Doesn’t Lie. (Paltrow pal Cameron Diaz was also in attendance.)

Earlier this month, they were spotted dining together with friends in Los Angeles, and, in April, were seen holding hands at Robert Downey Jr.‘s 49th birthday party.
