Charlize Theron Says Her Mom Buys Her Marijuana


David Oyelowo thinks the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Ryan Gosling were afforded more opportunities than black actors of his generation.

Charlize Theron's mum Gerda procured marijuana edibles to help the star combat her sleep issues.

The 42-year-old actress suffers from sleep problems and has revealed that her mother has sought to combat the issue by buying her the drug, which is now legal in the state of California.

David Oyelowo heads up Gringo as Harold, a mild-manned, trustworthy-to-the-point-of-naivety, businessman who works in an American pharmaceutical firm for the morally-bankrupt partners Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Elaine (Charlize Theron).

The Oscar victor revealed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Wednesday that her mother, Gerda, is now also her medical marijuana supplier.

Charlize Theron and Joel Edgerton co-star in the film as the heads of the business that is running the operation, and Theron absolutely delights in delivering filthy and politically incorrect dialogue with glee.

"I really thought I would be the responsible one to have to go and get that", she admitted.

During an appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!', Charlize said: "I'm always wiling to try anything".

She explained: "So the first night we got to Mexico if I had any doubts they were put to sleep". "I have really bad sleep [patterns] and so does my mom".

Theron's recent marijuana tales may have something to do with her movie coming out tomorrow.

"You sort of need to pummel and plough away for longer, as a black actor, to get a degree of fame and, more often than not, you have to play a historical figure somewhere; basically a role that a white actor couldn't play".

"She goes, "Pffft! I went to the store by myself", Theron said". "I assumed because she was in a tennis outfit she had scored with one young tennis friend".
