Golden Globe winner Charlize Theron adopted a boy named Jackson who decided to identify as female at age three.

“Yes, I thought she was a boy, too,” the left-wing actress said.

“Until she looked at me when she was three years old and said: ‘I am not a boy!’” Theron said.

Theron, who won an Academy Award for Best Actress, was listed among Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world.

“So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive.”

Theron is known for appearing in numerous Hollywood films, such as The Devil’s Advocate (1997), Mighty Joe Young (1998), The Italian Job (2003), Hancock (2008), Mad Max (2015), and many others.

Jackson has been seen wearing skirts and dresses and with long, braided hair.

“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,” Theron said.

“And I will do everything in my power for my kids to have that right and to be protected within that.”

The actress recently sent a threatening warning to people who disagree with drag queen events. “We love you queens! We’re in your corner,” the liberal 47-year-old actress said.

“We’ve got you, and I will f*** anybody up who is, like, trying to f*** with anything with you guys,” she added.

She recently participated in the “Drag Isn’t Dangerous” telethon in order to raise money for LGBTQ causes. Multiple Hollywood celebrities performed at the event.

Theron said, “In all seriousness, there are so many things that are hurting and, really, killing our kids, right, and we all know what I’m talking about right now.”

“If you’ve ever seen a drag queen lip sync for her life, it only makes you happier, it only makes you love more. It makes you a better person,” Theron said.

“F***, if I could do a death drop right now I would, but I would probably like, break my hip,” she said.

Theron concluded by asking viewers to “support all the great organizations that are out there helping all of this nonsense going away like it should, all of these incredibly stupid policies.”

These so-called “stupid policies” include legislation introduced in multiple states which would restrict sexually explicit performances in front of children. Many of these bills do not mention drag specifically but rather encompass any performances that are inappropriate for minors.

For example, Republican Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed a bill into law that was set to take effect April 1 that banned “adult cabaret entertainment” on public property or where minors can witness it.

Theron is a vocal advocate for LGBTQ people.
