There are many messages in the new animated adventure Kubo and the Two Strings. But, the one that stood out the most to Charlize Theron, who lends her voice to two characters in the film, is about non-traditonal families.

Theron, who is the adoptive mother of two African-American children, told HipHollywood that she loved how the film displayed that there are many different types of families.

“There’s a part of this movie, when you get to the third act that really showcases that family doesn’t always look they way we think family should look,” explained Theron. “And I think that is something so needed in the world right now.”

In the film, Kubo, a young boy with a magical gift for spinning folded origami, accidentally summons a vengeful spirit from the past, and gets a little help finding his way back home from Monkey (Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey).

McConaughey, who also has three small children, told us he enjoyed being able to think and act like a kid again for his role. “I loved getting to think like a kid with Beetle, because he is a big kid,” explained the Oscar-winning actor. “He’s fiercely loyal, goofy, a warrior in his own mind, a lost samurai that needs a quest, and here it comes.”

Kubo and the Two Strings hits theaters Aug 19th.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
