LOS ANGELES — Charlize Theron says her beauty has often worked against her.
“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, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first,” she said.
The actress now returns as Ravenna, the vain Evil Queen, in Universal Pictures’ ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’, a prequel to 2012’s ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, reported E!Online.
According to Theron, her plight mirrors what many of her Hollywood peers feel in real life.
“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.”
