Charlize Theron is absolutely alluring on the cover of British GQ’s May 2016 issue. The South African beauty chats about ageing, casting in the industry and her beloved home land.
Theron is not your stereotypical pretty faced actress, as she vehemently proved with her performance as a one-armed, rough-riding rig-jockey, which helped Mad Max: Fury win nearly all the major awards at the 2016 Oscars.
In the May 2016 Edition of GQ Magazine, she speaks speaks about her past, career and her future:
Charlize was able to rebel against the stereotype in the industry. She says “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, f***ing, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first.”
On getting older:
For a lady with a great physique, Charlize Theron explained; “We live in a society where women wilt and men age like fine wine. And, for a long time, women accepted it. We were waiting for society to change, but now we’re taking leadership. It would be a lie to say there is less worry for women as they get older than there is for men… It feels there’s this unrealistic standard of what a woman is supposed to look like when she’s over 40.”
About her birth country, South Africa:
“I love my country. And it’s very hard for South Africans to believe that, because I left and speak in an American accent. I have a very, very strong connection to my country and to its people. It’s the mother that might have abandoned me, in a weird way, but not all the way. I’m not having a pity party, but I’m constantly trying to win its love back.”
