Jackson may not know that his mom is an actress but he definitely knows that she’s pretty popular.
Charlize Theron recently stopped by the ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ to talk about her upcoming role in A Million Ways to Die in the West, and told Ellen that her son recognizes her face on billboards that advertise for the new film.
“I don’t know if he understands what I do, but he definitely knows when he see’s the billboards for the posters, you know for the movie. He knows that’s me. And he was on the movie when we were shooting so he saw me in the cowboy hat and everything,” said Charlize.
“I was driving him to kindergarten two days ago and we were stopping you know just as we were driving he was like ‘mama, mama, mama,’ pointing at the posters. And there’s the one of all four of us and we were at a light and he said, ‘Mama where’s cowboy hat?’ And I went ‘wow, that’s, that’s a big, that’s great.’ And then as I look back he has a big grin on his face and he just goes, ‘other lady princess.’ He thought Amanda [Seyfried] was a princess and his mom just wore a cowboy hat.”
Jackson is Charlize Theron’s son whom she adopted in 2012. The little one is the actress’ first child. A Million Ways to Die in the West comes to movie theaters on May, 30, 2014.
