But Halle decided to give her fans an adorable glimpse at her young son to celebrate his birthday. She took to Instagram with a cute snapshot of Maceo, who was peeking out from underneath a stylish cap.

Speaking to the Hollywood Foreign Press, she said: "You made me think of how many conversations I've had with him, say, since he's turned five years old, about the differences in boys and girls, and I see how he's taught to feel like he's superior, at five, than girls are.

Halle's son is growing up fast 

"I've had to really break that down for him and give him a new perspective, and challenge those thoughts and ask him to identify where that comes from, and if he believes that or not and challenge what he's subconsciously getting from somewhere.

"I can tell that because we're having those conversations he is going to grow as a deep thinker on the subject. He's going to be determined not to just accept it."
