Talk about a cool mom. Charlize Theron went on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday to promote her upcoming film Gringo, where she and Joel Edgerton play characters that run a business that produces medical marijuana pills.
As a result, interviewers have questioned Theron about her own marijuana use. Last week, we found out the Atomic Blonde actress was formerly a wake-and-baker and would stare at the fridge for hours. That led Theron to ditch the drug, but she revealed to Kimmel that she tried edibles to help her sleeping issues.

Only, Theron didn’t purchase the goods. Her mom did.
“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 said. “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.’ ”
Theron assumed one of her younger tennis partners had hooked her up. But as the actress learned, that wasn’t the case at all.
[My mom] said, ‘I went to the store by myself.’ I have this image of her in the store. She’s just not this kind of person, and buying marijuana…she had, like, a full experience.
