Charlize Theron doesn’t care what you think of her childhood. In fact, today, during an interview with reporters from E! News, Charlize opened up about her formative years which consisted of a lot of pot-smoking.
During the chat, the 42-year-old actress, and her co-star, David Oyelowo, went into depth on their histories with smoking marijuana. The question of marijuana use comes at a particularly relevant time, considering most states in the USA are on their way to legalizing it recreationally.
Theron admitted she was a “wake-and-baker” for most of her life and Sibley Coles asked her if she remembered her first time. Unlike most, Charlize’s time with marijuana-smoking came during her later years.
She said, “I didn’t mess around with anything until I was much older.” However, she ended up appreciating the green plant more than alcohol or any other drug for its therapeutic effects.
The actress claimed when she was younger her “chemistry” with the plant was much better, but it changed one day. The Academy-Award winner stated one day it just became boring.
As a result of the change in effect, Theron realized it was time to give it up and move on to the next stage of her life. And while she may have forgotten about it, for the most part, she’s not averse to using it for sleep.
The actress claimed that nowadays, there are many different kinds of strains so the effects can be more specifically suited to an individual’s needs.
Theron admitted she has “terrible insomnia” so wouldn’t mind smoking it again. Furthermore, the actress even claimed she might use it to help her mother as well who suffers the same condition.
