Charlize Theron launching her own line of jeans?

Charlize Theron is apparently in talks to design her own line of jeans. If you ask me – it sounds like an amazing idea! Charlize always looks gorgeous, it doesn’t matter what she’s wearing. If you ask me, she could wear a burlap sack – and make it look hot.

Theron, 37, and stylist Leslie Fremar are planning a Theron Jeans line with denim brands, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

And extra good news for her fans: the line would reportedly be sold for reasonable prices in mass-market stores. The Snow White and the Huntsman actress’ rep, however, told The Hollywood Reporter that she couldn’t confirm the project.

When it comes to style, Theron is all about keeping it simple these days. The single mother to son Jackson, 13 months, recently shaved her head for a role in the upcoming Mad Max film.

“It’s great,” she told E! News earlier in March. “It’s so low maintenance, and having a kid, you need as much time as you can get.”

I’m excited to see what happens with this!

Charlize Theron’s gorgeous May Vogue UK cover!

Charlize Theron covers this month’s Vogue UK, and the Oscar-winning actress has never looked better! These are by far the prettiest pictures I’ve seen of her in a long time (photos by Patrick Demarchelier).

After taking some time off, Charlize has been back in the spotlight. First was last year’s ‘Young Adult’ (LOVED IT), and this year she has ‘Prometheus’ and ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ coming out. I can’t wait to see both of them!

She surprised fans this year with the surprise adoption of a baby boy, named Jackson.

She says she’s been planning on becoming a mother for a long time.

“I’ve always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I’ve always known I wanted a family. I don’t think my mom could wait any more!”

On her son:

“Jackson is incredible, the greatest gift. He is the coolest kid ever.”

On what kind of mom she hopes to be:

“I hope to be like my mom. Fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.”

On why she was never a model, and how she stays in shape:

“I was too tall, too big, too late for the supermodel look of the Eighties. Kate Moss and all the tiny, grungy girls had just become fashionable, and I didn’t fit the bill. I’m sure there are women who never have to worry about what they eat. But I do. I exercise a lot, and I hike a lot. My mom and I hike at least three times a week.”

I just love these pictures of her! She’s so gorgeous!

Elle gets the scoop on Charlize Thereon’s beauty secret.

It takes confidence for any woman—even an ex-model equipped with indisputable leading-lady looks—to gain 30 pounds and modify herself with prosthetics to appear on 50-foot-high movie screens worldwide. But that’s just what actress Charlize Theron did to play Aileen Wuornos in 2003’s Oscar-winning Monster. “There’s no way I could have understood that character without having an emotional connection to her appearance,” Theron says. In her current project, Diablo Cody’s Young Adult, which hit theaters December 16, she plays a fiction writer with a penchant for alcohol and ex-boyfriends, and a nervous hair-pulling habit that leaves her with bald spots. Not exactly a glamorous role either, but Theron, 36, isn’t concerned with looking pretty. “My job is to be a blank canvas and embody the character that I’m playing.” Of course it helps that, off duty, said canvas is anything but blank; for seven years Theron has played herself in the très chic Dior J’Adore fragrance campaign—a role she feels connects her to every woman. “Perfume is a little piece of couture,” she says. “I love being a part of something that makes women feel sexy.”

Extensions are popular in Hollywood, but you’ve always worn your hair shorter. Why do you keep it that way?
I’ve never really had hair for myself. My style is always for playing a character, so I’m personally not superattached to any look. If I’m not working, I prefer something that’s easy to care for and doesn’t require a lot of styling—I’m not fussy! I try to be extra gentle on my hair since it endures a lot on set. My longtime stylist Enzo Angileri turned me on to hair oils for deep conditioning, so I’ll do a treatment when I have a little bit of free time.

What about your signature blond?
Even my color is usually in a state of whatever my next character is. For the Dior J’Adore campaigns, however, I always go superblond, which I love. It’s how I looked when the campaign started, and we’ve stayed loyal to it for the past seven years. It just feels right for J’Adore, which is all about glamour.

It’s been seven years? But you look exactly the same!
I’m a massive believer in sunblock. Massive. I wear sunblock in the winter, when it’s rainy and gray out—all the time. And not just SPF 15; I wear 50. Five-zero! It’s a huge part of my moisturizing routine.

Your dermatologists must be so proud.
The importance of sunscreen has been instilled in me from a very young age through my mom, who is aging so well. She’s helped me make peace with the little flaws I have. It’s really inspiring to watch her age gracefully.

How do you keep your skin HD-ready while traveling so much?
I play around with different moisturizers—I like to change up my skin care. Right now I love Dior L’Or de Vie, La Crème. It’s very hydrating. I also keep cleansing really simple. I’ve stuck with Cetaphil for years now; it’s very gentle.

What is your red-carpet approach?
I don’t think of myself as a trendsetter. I’ve always been more casual and effortless. I try to keep my red-carpet look classic. My makeup artist, Shane Paish, usually does some sort of smoky eye by lining my upper and lower lash line with waterproof liner and coating my lashes with tons of mascara. I’m lucky enough to have worked with the same crew who create a cohesive look with my hair, makeup, and styling.

In an iconic J’Adore TV commercial, you strut down a hallway while taking it all off—from jewelry to gown. Where does that confidence come from?
I’ve practiced yoga for many years, and it gives me energy and makes me feel really great. A few years ago, I also picked up cycling, which is better on my knees than running. I’ve learned you’re not ever going to have any real success unless you find something that you can really implement into your lifestyle and really love.
