Theron recently admitted she’s considering leaving the United States with her two adopted black children over her concerns over what she describes as ramped up race tensions.
The South African actress grew up during apartheid before moving to LA to pursue her dream of Hollywood stardom.
In an interview with Elle Magazine, she explained her concerns and how her children – African Americans whom she adopted – will fit into America in the future.
The Monster Oscar winner said she now won’t take on jobs in certain areas of the country for fears over how her family would be treated.
‘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 is for my children to feel unsafe.’

Theron also touched on the Trump Administration as potentially stoking the flames of racism in America.
‘I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration,’ she said. ‘But racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal.’
She also discussed how being raised in South Africa gave her a particularly heightened insight into the devastation that rampant racism can produce for a country and it’s people.
‘Being raised during the apartheid era in South Africa made me so hyper-aware of equality and human rights.’
Theron adopted her son Jackson, 6, in 2012 and daughter August, 2, in 2015.
