Charlize talks gay marriage

Charlize Theron says the current marriage laws are a “form of apartheid.”

Charlize Theron says the current marriage laws are a “form of apartheid,” femalefirst.co.uk reports.

The South African-born actress — who has previously stated she will not marry her long-term partner Stuart Townsend until same-sex marriage is legal in the U.S. — can’t understand why America refuses to give gay people the same rights as their heterosexual counterparts.

She said: “I don’t like living in an elitist world, it bothers me. I don’t want to be part of an elitist sexual preference. It bothers me, maybe it’s because I come from a country where I lived under apartheid but this is a form of apartheid and I don’t want to be a part of that.

“It’s not the reason I’m not getting married but it’s maybe a part of it.”
