Since bringing her son Jackson home in March, Charlize Theron is becoming an expert on diaper duty and bedtime stories. The actress reveals a favorite funny book: Go the F-ck to Sleep.
“A lot of people have sent me these children’s books, and there’s this amazing book, a best-seller called Go the F-ck to Sleep,” Charlize tells MTV News. “This book was good for me because it made me realize that I don’t need to judge myself right now.”
She adds that the bestseller, which was written by weary dad Adam Mansbach and eventually even narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, isn’t off limits just yet because her son is still too young to understand the bad language: “The whole book is just basically, ‘Please, go the f— to sleep.’ Because [Jackson] doesn’t understand anything right now, and so he just wants my face to look a certain way.”
As for diaper duty, the doting mama says she’s already a pro – “I can do it in my sleep now. I’m so good,” she jokes – thanks to an international crash course.
“As we were traveling, I had to buy diapers in different countries — because he came on the press tour with me — so I now know how to change a Japanese diaper, a Spanish diaper, an English diaper, German diaper,” she recently told the Today show. “They all have little things [that are different]. I’m, like, the diaper pro now!”
