Charlize Theron Dishes on Her Son Jackson Falling in Love with Emily Blunt
Co-stars Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt are two hot mamas who are sharing the big screen as wicked beauties in “The Huntsman: Winter's War.”
Though they portray evil sisters on screen, they are focusing on just being mommies at home. At a press conference with Charlize, Emily revealed she is definitely more aware of the roles she takes since becoming a mom. She told “Extra's” Terri Seymour that she just signed on to play a voice in the “My Little Pony” movie. Charlize reacted to the news, “Way to go! Now Jackson is really going to be in love with you.”
Theron explained that her son fell in love with Emily on set. “My son is in love with her. He thinks she's, like, the most beautiful princess ever. Yeah, it's crazy. I didn't even exist, he was just like, 'Ahhh, she's a princess.' I'm like, 'I'm a queen.'”
Jackson is playing close attention to his mommy's scenes on set. The 4-year-old had a priceless reaction to one in particular. Emily recalled, “He was watching her close up and she was really going for it, like, and the intensity, and it was just one of those heightened scenes and Jackson was watching her close up and he went, 'Oooh, Mama's spicy.'” Theron smiled, “That's my son, that's my son.”
Emily added, “She's a spicy mama.” Charlize commented, “I have no idea where he even came up with that word choice.” Emily asked, “I mean, where has he even heard that?” Charlize answered, “I have no idea — at school.”
Speaking of kids, Blunt is expecting her second baby with husband John Krasinski. When asked how far along she is, Emily laughed, “I won't tell you. I won't tell you — not on camera.” Charlize joked, “You and all of these microphones!” Emily emphasized, “It's like, 'Hey, come to the hospital on this date, guys.'"
Terri also asked Charlize about rumors she isn't going to do any more nude scenes, something Emily has been vocal about. Charlize chuckled, “Sorry I'm laughing — I was just butt-naked in my last movie. Was it after that I said that?” While cracking up, Charlize asked, “Did I see that film and say, 'I am done with nudity?'” Emily answered, “You saw the dailies and you said, 'That's it.'”
For now, you can see Charlize and Emily when “The Huntsman: Winter's War” hits theaters April 21.
