Charlize Theron Just Shared the First Photo of Her Daughter in 3 Years

Charlize Theron just posted a rare photo of her daughter, Jackson, and she looks seriously grown-up.

Yesterday, the Long Shot star, 44, shared a slideshow of photos from their family vacation, including one of Jackson picking fruit off a tree. 

She captioned the post, “We don’t wanna leaves.”

The photo might surprise fans, since Theron rarely shares pics of her two adopted children, Jackson and August. In fact, the last time she posted a photo of her kids was in November 2016, and it only showed their hands. Although Theron has kept her children out of the public eye, she isn’t shy about talking about them.

Back in May, the actress appeared on an episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and revealed that Jackson thoroughly enjoys outsmarting her. “They feel like the limited amount of knowledge that they have at this age, they act as if they’re masters of that knowledge, and use it consistently in a matter [of] like, ‘You’re stupid, mom,’” she said.

This includes everything from normal child knowledge to Medusa’s (supposed) origin. “My 7-year-old said to me the other day, she said, ‘You know, Medusa’s in our pool.’ I said I had no idea Medusa lived in our pool,” Theron added. “I said, ‘Where is she from, by the way?’ And she just looked at me and she went, ‘New Jersey.’”

Keep ’em coming, Charlize.
