At the Elle Women in Hollywood party in Los Angeles, it was not only Lady Gaga who got the media attention with her statement. 43-year-old Charlize Theron also was among the winners and spoke to the guests of the ceremony with a speech. The actress raising two small children, six-year-old Jackson and two-year-old Augustus, joked that it was time for her to sleep, and instead of going to bed early, she was standing on the stage.

As for me, it’s already very late … I feel like a tired mother who drank too much vodka, the
actress joked.

Her mother Gerda came to support her daughter, and it was to her that the actress addressed words of gratitude.

My mother deserves an award. She instilled all the values that I have … Thank you for telling me that my jokes are not funny or that I am behaving foolishly. Thank you for covering my back,
”Theron thanked Mama.

Earlier in an interview, Charlize admitted that Gerda is perfectly able to remain calm, when young children are naughty, and her famous daughter learns this from her.

Sometimes I lose my mind, and she says: “Calm down, this is just a moment. It will pass,” the
actress told reporters.
