The That Thing You Do actress says that though she has always wanted to become a mom one day, she just can"t tell it right now when that day would come, reports the China Daily.
"I've always known that I wanted to be a mom. I love children. I've always loved children. But I'm not like, 'Oh my god, I really must have kids right now.' I've never felt this pressing urge that some biological clock is ticking. We both want to be parents one day, but I've no idea when that will be," Charlize said.
Theron also says that she is grateful to have found a loving partner like Stuart, who has added meaning to her life.
"Since I've been with Stuart, my vulnerability has become something I'm more comfortable with. I think there's a part of me that is very much a survivor. I don't know if it was in my genes, I don't know what it is. But I guess being young and starting out in a sense of, 'I'm not going to be a wallflower, and I'm not going to be messed with.' That was the only way I knew how to survive at that time. But all that has changed since I've been with Stuart. I don't feel like I'm in survival mode any more. I feel like it's OK, I can breathe, so I'm very grateful to him," Charlize told Marie Claire magazine.
