Birthday Girl Charlize Theron Jets Out of LA With Jackson

Charlize Theron held on to her son, Jackson, while hopping on a private plane out of the Burbank Airport in LA yesterday. She playfully flipped her little one over her shoulder, and she and her mother, Gerda, greeted the pilot before boarding. Charlize has been back on the West Coast since paying a philanthropic visit to her home country of South Africa last week. The actress spoke at a press conference about the fight against HIV and AIDS alongside President Jacob Zuma and stressed the importance of teaching young girls about their health.

Charlize's latest jaunt out of LA could be a celebratory one — she turns 38 today, so it's likely that she and her family are headed on a vacation to commemorate the big day. Check out Charlize's hottest pictures and beauty evolution in honor of her birthday!
