South African-born Oscar-winner Charlize Theron has spoken out on her thoughts about Gay Marriage.

According to, the star compared the ban on gay marriage in her adopted-country America to apartheid.

“It’s just so caveman, I can’t believe we’re still talking about it,” 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. Maybe it’s because I come from a country where I lived under apartheid. This is a form of apartheid and I don’t want to be a part of that,” she said.

Theron has said in the past that she and boyfriend Stuart Townsend refused to get married until gay marriage became legal in America.

‘It’s not the reason I’m not getting married but it’s maybe a part of it,” Theron said. “My ability to get married is a piece of me that I wish I could give to somebody who it would mean so much to. We should all have the chance.”
