“I really appreciated marijuana way more than alcohol or anything else,” the actress once said. Has her view changed? Let’s discuss.
Charlize Theron is one of the world’s most prolific actresses. Known for both her transformative roles (“Monster,” “Bombshell”) and numerous action movies (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Atomic Blonde”), she’s one of the coolest people out there, always getting involved with new and interesting projects. This week sees the release of her new film, “The Old Guard,” which recently premiered on Netflix.
Theron has been pretty open about her past marijuana use. But does she still smoke weed?
She’s made public comments ranging from the fact that she didn’t try weed until she was older and that her mom used to come over to her house to drop off edibles.

“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,” Theron told Jimmy Fallon back in 2018. “She was like, ‘So I got some blueberry-covered chocolate ones, but if you want it faster-acting, you should go for the mints. Those you suck, and it works faster.’ ”
That same year, while speaking with E! News, she discussed her weed habits more in depth, explaining that while she used to wake and bake regularly, she’s now taking it slower. “But I really appreciated marijuana way more than alcohol or anything else. My chemistry was really good with it when I was younger and then it just changed one day. Like, in my early thirties I just became boring on it and I would just stand in front of my fridge, so that’s no good.”
Theron explains that she doesn’t know what changed in her system when it comes to her marijuana use, only that she needed a break.

“I’m open to retrying it again because now there’s all these different strains and you can be specific with it,” she said. “And I’m actually really interested because I have really bad insomnia, and I’d much rather get off sleeping pills and figure out a strain that helps me sleep better. So when I have a moment, I’m actually doing that with my mom. My mom has really bad sleep too.”
So while Theron might not be currently waking and baking, she might soon try some new cannabis product — possibly with her mom — which makes it all better.
