Charlize Theron watches TV while bottle-feeding baby boy Jackson â€“ much to the chagrin of her mother. She tells US Weekly that’s she’s obsessed â€“ foaming-at-the-mouth obsessed â€“ with Games of Thrones. “That was my TiVo feed every two hours â€“ watching Games of Thrones,” she explains. “And my mom was like, ‘Do you think it’s fine that you’re feeding your son while there [are] sword fights?'”
