Hollywood star Charlize Theron became a "hero" to her daughter when she bought her a rare Taylor Swift T-shirt.

The actress has adoptive children Jackson, 11, and seven-year-old August, and revealed that her eldest was thinking she is "uncool" but was able to go up in her estimations by tracking down a one-of-a-kind T-shirt featuring country superstar Taylor.

She told US TV show 'Extra': "My oldest is now getting into that teenage phase of ‘Mom’s not cool anymore,’ so when I have little moments like that where I buy her the Taylor Swift T-shirt that nobody can get, that’s when I’m like a hero.”

“‘Mom, you got me that shirt that nobody can get?’ ‘Yes, I did. Don’t forget that.’ It’s always nice when your kids are happy, right?"

The Academy Award-winning star also added that when it comes to her children, she wants to keep them "safe and informed" about what is going on in the world amid the horrors of the Israel-Hamas conflict but is restricting how much she tells them because she feels as if kids see "too much" these days and wants them to be able to enjoy life, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

She said: "I want them to find joy and happiness every single day and go and have healthy lives and be good people."

"I'm keeping them safe and informed, but also not bombarding them with imagery and context that they are not ready for. feel like our kids are seeing too much, you know? It’s now become more important to, like, try and eliminate some of it because it’s not helping. It’s not helping all of us, but I think we are more capable of dealing with it.
