Charlize Theron wants interviewers to stop asking the same old superficial questions about her less than attractive characters in Monster, North Country, In The Valley of Elah and Sleepwalking. You see, it’s offensive because the character is her without makeup.
“It bothers me that if you’re gonna come in, especially to these junkets… and you’re gonna be covering this industry, you should go and do your homework a little bit.
“I understand that there’s a sense of entertainment and everybody wants the quick soundbite, but, at the same time, especially when you’re dealing with material that’s serious… Don’t come to me and tell me that North Country was a transformation; it’s dirt on my face.
“I got to a point… where somebody (said)… ‘You love playing ugly people…’ and I take such offence to that.
“Part of me almost wants to go, ‘Y’know what, that’s actually me… with no make-up, and I’m somewhat offended right now because you’re basically saying I’m ugly.'”
I kind of know what Charlize is talking about, but not really. You couldn’t make me unattractive. Not even if you got the special effects team from Lord of the Rings to turn me into one of those monsters. I’m too beautiful. On the inside as well as the outside. Especially on the outside. I would even go as far to say my beauty is a curse. But, I think you’re old enough to know the truth. It’s not. It’s actually pretty fucking awesome.
