Charlize Theron explains why she gets medical marijuana from her mom
Charlize Theron is using medical cannabis to get better sleep, and it’s all thanks to her mom.
The actress appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to talk about her latest role as a foul-mouthed medical marijuana pharmaceutical boss in the new movie Gringo, as well as why she personally uses marijuana.
“I’m always willing to try anything. You got one life to live, why not?” Theron said in her interview with Kimmel. “I have really bad sleep [issues] and so does my mom. We do take sleep medication, and I was saying to her, ‘Maybe we should try a sleeping strain, something that could help us with sleep.’”
But while Theron thought she’d eventually have to find medical pot for the both of them, her mother ended up taking initiative.
“I really thought I would be the responsible one to have to go and get that,” Theron explained. “Last week, she showed up at my house, literally drove in her little tennis outfit and brought me a little container and just left it on my kitchen table.”
“[My mom] goes, ‘I went to the store by myself,’” Theron added. “And I have this image of her in the store. She’s just not this kind of person and buying marijuana… she was saying, ‘And they tried to give me all sorts of lollipops.’ We shared like a full experience.”
As for her problems getting good sleep, Theron says that her mom’s choice of medical cannabis was “incredible.”
“It totally works, it’s amazing.”
