You know, ever since her whole thing with Sean Penn and that SoulCycle feud with Tia Mowry, I’ve suspected that Charlize Theron is kind of the worst, and now I have confirmation thanks to this new quote from her interview with British GQ. It is a master class in humblebragging. Seriously, I would be tempted to give her a standing ovation if I weren’t so busy rolling my eyes.
Apparently, in Charlize Theron’s world, it’s like really hard to get good roles when you’re beautiful.
“Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that’s the end of the story. How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, fucking, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first.”
Um, are Charlize Theron and I watching the same movies? Because I’m not seeing a lot of ugly people. In fact “gorgeous, fucking, gown-wearing eight-foot model” describes a pretty good percentage of the women in Hollywood. (Ignoring how insane she sounds describing herself that way like she’s some sort of hot leper.)
Charlize must think everyone else in Hollywood is butt ugly compared to her. But even if she does, her comment still doesn’t make sense, considering she’s gotten plenty of “meaty roles,” and the acclaim and awards to go with them, as a beautiful person.
As Jezebel points out, Charlize won an Oscar for a role (as Aileen Wuornos in Monster) in which she actually had to become uglier through makeup. Even then, the filmmakers went with the hot lady over someone less attractive, and for the second year in a row, the resulting performance was rewarded by the Academy.
And let’s also not forget Charlize’s recent role in Mad Max: Fury Road. The movie was praised for its feminist themes, and Charlize’s character Furiosa was declared the real star of the show. Not to mention the supporting women in the cast were LITERAL SUPERMODELS.
Go eat a Kalteen bar, Charlize.
