Charlize Theron talks She wants to move out of US

Actor Charlize Theron has said she considers moving out of the US as she fears for the lives of her two black children in the racially-charged environment in the country.

In an interview with Elle magazine, the ‘Atomic Blonde’ actor, who was born and raised in South Africa during the apartheid, talked about the prevalent social climate and raising two black children in the US.

The actor said she would not consider taking up jobs in certain areas of the country over fears for her family and how they would be treated.

"Racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can't deny it anymore. We have to be vocal. There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn't take it. I wouldn't travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that's really problematic," Theron said.

"There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I'm like, ‘If this continues, I might have to (leave America). Because the last thing I want for my children is to feel unsafe’.” The actor is a mother to 2-year-old August and 6-year-old Jackson, whom she adopted as a single parent.
