Charlize Theron Covers Vogue September 2009
On her longtime love, Irish actor Stuart Townsend: “We’ve been together for almost nine years, so by now we’ve kind of realized that we’re going to take this journey together.” (They’re not married.)
On feeling like she’s shadowed constantly by a sense of remorse for some inappropriate thing she’s just said: “People tell me that cocaine makes you feel superhuman and you’ll say anything. Then when you come down like all of a sudden you have guilt. But I have that feeling innately, even without the cocaine.”
On playing all strong women for films: I can’t tell you about that but I know how I feel about facing my own weaknesses, and playing into my weaknesses and finding that within my characters. My weaknesses are way more interesting to me than my strengths.”
