(Newser) – Charlize Theron, apparently, actually sat down for an interview with British tabloid the Sun, where she dropped this odd tidbit: "I had no teeth until I was 11." She explains that, due to a heavy regimen of antibiotics for jaundice as a child, her teeth "rotted" and had to be removed, leaving her with "fangs." "I never had milk teeth," she explains. "That was tough, you know, being in school having photos taken while I was pretending I had teeth. It was hideous."

Theron, 36, also discusses new baby Jackson, who is "great" but costing her sleep—not that she minds: "I’ve never felt more creative and with more energy but on the tiniest amount of sleep. I never knew I needed that little sleep. I always had eight hours and now it’s, 'Wow, OK, you can function on just four.'" Hat tip to Gawker for spotting the interview.
