Cher Confused About What To Call Son Chaz After Gender Reassignment Surgery

November 2, 2010 Cher, Meryl Streep, Bono

Cher still gets confused about her child Chaz's gender. The Oscar Award and Grammy Award-winning actress/singer admits that she gets in trouble for still referring to son Chaz as her daughter.

Chaz legally became a man in May this year after he requested for a gender and name change. His physical transformation operation began in mid-2008.

But for Cher, who welcomed baby Chastity Sun Bono in 1969, she still gets confused on what pronoun to use when referring to Chaz.

She told Vanity Fair in an interview, "If I woke up tomorrow in a guy's body, I would just kick and scream and cry and f****** rob a bank, because I cannot see myself as anything but who I am - a girl. I would not take it as well as Chaz has. I couldn't imagine it."

"She's a very smart girl - boy! This is where I get into trouble. My pronouns are f*****. I still don't remember to call her 'him.'"

The 64-year-old Hollywood legend also candidly spoke about aging, revealing her frustration with Meryl Streep, who is three years younger than her.

Cher said, "I think Meryl is doing it great. The stupid b**** is doing it better than all of us! But I don't like it. It's getting in my way. I have a job to do, and it's making my job harder."

"I've been screaming at the top of my lungs at my family, 'Work out! Work out! Old age is coming!' At some point you will need the strength. Who would have ever thought you would get this old?"
