Charlize Theron looks stunning as she takes dip in the waters of Cabo with mom Gerda
Charlize Theron was seen sizzling in a bright yellow one-piece bathing suit while she took a dip in the warm waters of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. Charlize's mother Gerda also joined her on her vacation south of the border, relaxing in the sea together. The Oscar winner, 46, was also seen coordinating her swimsuit with a yellow beach attire, carrying a gray-and-black tote black and donning a pair of large sunglasses. Her multiple gold necklaces added a little sparkle to her look.
The actress seemed to enjoy the waters as she chatted away with her mother, with a glow on her face. Gerda looked graceful in a dark swimsuit with black-and-white striped straps. Charlize, who was seen spending time in New York City earlier this month, seems to have jetted down to Mexico for a Thanksgiving bash with her family. Earlier in the day, the actress and her family landed in Los Cabos — which encompasses the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo in the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula.
The Monster star was in far chillier New York City last week, celebrating the opening of a boutique for the Swiss luxury watchmaker Breitling on Madison Avenue. At the event with the ballerina Misty Copeland, she opened up about her work to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa. "Being born in South Africa and coming from a place with so much turmoil, it’s kind of like in my bones to fight injustices," she said, via WWD. "There is a way to live your life in a way that your actions are putting forth what you believe verbally, and I have always believed that we need more representation."
She continued, "Whenever I can be a part of something like that, that’s a good message to send out there, I’ve got two young girls who are both African American and I want them to see people who look like them and I want them to be inspired."
Charlize also spoke about how her Africa Outreach Project had briefly shifted its goals to protect African youths from HIV/AIDS to helping to stop the spread of Covid-19 amid the ongoing pandemic. "We’re working with a two-prong approach in advocacy and getting misinformation deleted in communities where we know it’s prevalent and also supporting grassroots organizations who have access to vaccines," she said. "That’s been a realty big program especially on the continent of Africa. I think we’re at less than six percent of Africans have been vaccinated."
In October, Charlize spoke to Elle about how she balances her time between parenting, her career, her activism and her position as a UN ambassador. She has two adopted daughters, Jackson, 10, and August, six. "I mean the balance is a very tricky thing as a single parent, no matter what job you have, but especially when you have a job that makes you travel," she said. "But that’s always evolving as my kids are getting a little older."
