To celebrate Mother's Day, the 'Tully' actress opens up about why her mother is the person she calls on when life gets hard.
Charlize Theron is a single mother to two young children, son Jackson and daughter August, so it's a safe guess that she could probably use a hand from time to time. To promote her new film, Tully, Theron was asked who her Tully is. (If you've seen Tully, that question becomes much more complicated, but for the sake of this cute video, it's who helps you when life gets hard.)
"My mom is my savior," Theron gushes in this exclusive featurette. "She shows up at my door sometimes that makes me feel like she might be clairvoyant, because they're always the right times. I am so grateful to have that woman in my life."
Theron previously credited her mother, Gerta, with helping "co-parent" her kids and later opened up to ET about the days that try her patience as a mom. "It's the most meaningful thing that's ever happened in my life and I absolutely love it," she said. "But I have days where I'm literally like, 'I'm not enjoying parenting today.'"
Watch the trailer for Tully:
Here's is the movie's full synopsis:
"A new comedy from Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman (“Up in the Air”) and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (“Juno”). Marlo (Theron), a mother of three including a newborn, is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass). Hesitant to the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis)."
Tully is in theaters now.
