Here are some photos of Charlize Theron after taping the “Today” show to promote Snow White and the Huntsman, which I am sincerely looking forward to watching in the theater. Charlize looks fierce in this black dress and matching strappy sandal heels, and I think she looks her best with a really good blowout too. She’s certainly a fierce bitch in her own right, and Charlize has now discussed how hard it is to turn off her own potty mouth tendencies now that baby Jackson has made his preferences known for the very difficult period in every parent’s life known as “bedtime.” So much so that Charlize has announced that her favorite children’s book is Go the F-ck to Sleep, which is famously narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. As a parent, I can certainly identify with Charlize’s plight:
Bad habits are hard to break — just ask potty mouth Charlize Theron.
When asked by MTV News if she’s been able to tone down her colorful language since adopting son Jackson in March, the 36-year-old Snow White and the Huntsman star laughed and shook her head.
“A lot of people have sent me these children’s books, and there’s this amazing book, a best-seller called Go the F-ck to Sleep,” she said. “This book was good for me because it made me realize that I don’t need to judge myself right now.”
Written by Adam Mansbach, Go the F-ck to Sleep has been called “a parenting zeitgeist” by The Washington Post and “a new Bible for weary parents” by The New York Times. For Theron, it’s been a breath of fresh air.
“The whole book is just basically, ‘Please, go the f— to sleep,” she explained to MTV News. “Because [Jackson] doesn’t understand anything right now, and so he just wants my face to look a certain way.”
Theron also spoke about the joys of motherhood — diaper duty included! — on Today Tuesday. “I love it! I’ve got to tell you, I’m available for other babies’ diapers to be changed. I can do it in my sleep now,” the Oscar winner bragged. “I’m so good.”
“As we were traveling, I had to buy diapers in different countries — because he came on the press tour with me — so I now know how to change a Japanese diaper, a Spanish diaper, an English diaper, German diaper,” Theron added. “They all have little things [that are different]. I’m, like, the diaper pro now!”

Go the F-ck to Sleep really is an amusing book especially in audio format because of Sam Jackson’s distinctive voice, but I can only handle the first half before the F-bombs really do get to be a bit much even for me. It’s also quite interesting how Charlize discusses her expertise in changing diapers of differing nationality. One never thinks about that until faced with the possibility, of course. I think I’ll just take her word for it.
