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

She 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. (Trending: Here’s The Secret Warning Obama Sent Biden)
