Charlize Theron Explains Why Having 'Pretty' Face Is Not Always a Benefit in Hollywood

The 'Mad Max: Fury Road' actress opens up that 'pretty people get turned away first' when it comes to 'meaty' movie roles.

AceShowbiz - Charlize Theron discusses the challenge of securing a role in Hollywood. In her cover story for GQ's newest edition, the Furiosa of "Mad Max: Fury Road" reveals that an actress with a "pretty" face usually becomes one of the firsts to get rejected.

"Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that's the end of the story," she says. "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."

The movie beauty also talks about aging in showbiz. "We live in a society where women wilt and men age like fine wine," she explains. "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."
