Theron shares son Jackson and daughter August with former partner Stuart Townsend. Not that Penn mistreated her or anything, he's just, you know, Sean Penn.
We will see the maternal side of Theron in her upcoming movie, Tully, but in Gringo, she plays a sleazy corporate type with quite the potty mouth - "I say some awful stuff in this movie." - who sends Oyelowo's character on a "business trip" to Mexico to fetch a marijuana pill formula.

To Theron's surprise, her fellow experiment subject made the first move and went to the dispensary to obtain research materials. After quitting the drug in her 30s due to a bad reaction that caused her to stare at a refrigerator for eight hours (no joke), the 42-year-old actress is back to blazing up, and she's found the most reliable supplier: her mom. "She's one of the bravest people I know", Oyelowo told.
