Charlize Theron stars as the beautiful Queen Ravenna in The Huntsman: Winter's War, but her son Jackson only had eyes for one lady – her onscreen sister Emily Blunt. In a new interview this week, Charlize, 40, revealed that her little boy is infatuated with Emily. "My son is in love with her," she told Extra TV. "He thinks she's the most beautiful princess ever.
"The kids were all there. But, I didn't even exist. My son was just like, 'She's a princess', and I was like, "I'm a queen!" she joked.

Little Jackson isn't the only one vying for Emily's attention. The British actress, 33, and her husband John Krasinski, 36, are due to welcome their second child later this year, but the star has admitted that their two-year-old daughter Hazel isn't really ready to become a big sister.
"She quite likes being top dog at the moment, I think," Emily told Jimmy Kimmel this week. "I broached it with her and the first response when I said, 'You know Hazel, there's a baby in there; you're going to be a big sister', did not go well. She looked at me and she went, 'Nope.' And I went 'Yes.' That was the first talk. I've bought her every 'I'm a big sister' book out there."

Nevertheless, the star is doing her best to prepare little Hazel for the arrival of her baby brother or sister. "People say the relationship between you and your first child is the one that changes the most, because they've got competition," she said.
"I was like, 'OK, well, I have lots of time now,' so I do lots of things with her. I was thinking, 'I'll have baths with her and stuff'...We have many baths together.
"I thought that I was not yet at the point where my body was just really embarrassing to my child. You know when you become a teenager and you see your parents naked and you're like, 'Ahh!' It's like the worst thing in the world. So, I got into the bath with her and she looked at me and she goes, 'Whoa! Mama big!'" Emily said. "I went, 'We are never bathing together again. That's it!'"
