Theron explained that being raised during apartheid made her "hyperaware of equality and human rights" even before she was a mom to two black children.

"Of course, I have two black kids, but that was always something I was passionate about. I don't even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration" she explained.

She revealed in the interview that her own mother, the children's grandmother, is helping her co-parent.

Theron stars in the upcoming movie "Tully," where she portrays a single mother raising three children on her own.
