Charlize Theron: 'Snow White' in Japan!

Charlize Theron: 'Snow White' in Japan!

Charlize Theron looks super chic at a press event for her film Snow White and the Huntsman on Sunday (May 20) in Tokyo, Japan.

The 36-year-old actress, who rocked a The Row black leather dress and Dior shoes, was joined by her director Rupert Sanders.

“I hate actors who come and quote Nietzsche,” Charlize recently told Australia’s Madison magazine (via Us Weekly) about actors. “I don’t like pretentious sh-t. I like being around people who like to live life and understand the value of it. I need to be around people who understand we’re not curing cancer here.”

    It sure seemed like Charlize thought she was ‘curing cancer’ when they made a big deal about her Oscar winning portrayal of the woman on death row…..bet she didn’t complain about it then, hmm? Its funny how Actors only seem to see OTHERS taking themselves ‘too seriously’, but don’t seem to recognize when THEY THEMSELVES sound pretensious. Its so funny…

  • Alrighty Then

    It’s time for this promo tour to be over with. Because it seems that Charlize and Kristen are saying crap that makes them look stupid, high & mighty and pretentious and it is not becoming at all. I wonder how much of that big talk they’re willing to swallow if this movie flops????? Because right now it is not doing too well with the reviews.

  • nikky

    gorgeous! The dress suits her :)

  • dude

    @Queen Bee: How so? i think she is on about arrogant celebs she is talking about being normal and not thinking you’re everything…..She was never one to think too much of herself so not sure what you’re talking about….Anyways she looks beautiful
    Just because she took on a serious role that doe not mean she is a serious acting obviously you seem to not be able to tell the difference between acting and real life…
    She is right though celebs these days think they can cure cancer,

  • seriously?

    I think people are taking what she said out of context she is obviously talking about not taking your self seriously outside of the acting life, and she is right most celebs today think they’re jesus or something……..I think what she is saying is that you’re just an actor their is no need to be arrogant, Just live your life normally..

    She looks amazing.

  • Lea

    i agree that people misunderstood what she meant. if you watch her interviews, she keeps things light and interesting. She can give serious answers but for the most part she doesnt act like her job as an actor is profound…..she has no inhibitions either, which I think is the key to being a good actor.

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @Queen Bee:

    so accepting an Oscar means that she walks around everyday like a snob, all consumed by her “issues” like most actors do? Cause that is what she’s talking about. She’s the most carefree actress there is. You might want to improve your reading comprehension skills.

  • Ugonna Wosu

    Back to what I originally wanted to say.,..

    LOOKING GORGEOUS!!!!!

  • g

    talk about misplacing quotes and making headlines with stuff that weren’t the main idea (even just jokes)

    Xi…assim a malta fica de “olhos em bico” mesmo:)))
    Rupert looks great…and Charlize too;)

  • http://justjared saira

    Spoken like a true pot smoker. It’s not “pretentious” t be intelligent or well-read. This reminds me of Megan Fox commenting on Scarlett Johanson using “big words” during interviews.

    Then again, Charlize is knocking on 40, and her roles are already drying up as a leading lady. Suddenly, it’s ensemble roles and the movie vilianess. You know what comes next : mother of a Disney tweener.

    I can see the quote now: “I just wanted to do a movie that my son, Jackson, can see.” haha

    what Maria said I’m dazzled that a mom able to make $8901 in a few weeks on the computer. did you read this site..?FaceBookJob.notlong.com

  • speaktruth

    Girl crush is growing. How hot is she?!

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @saira:

    she was supposed to be the lead in Prometheus, but turned it down for a while to commit to Mad Max. She’s also the Lead in Mad Max and Agent 13.

    Any other false claims?

  • Whycantipost

    @saira:

    Think you misunderstand her quote, because there is nothing wrong with being intelligent/well-read. She means the people who try to show how ‘smart’ they are by quoting intelligent people, while they most of the time don’t even know what the words actually mean and in what context they originally appeared in(or actually have never even read the book the quote is from, they just want to sound interesting and very smart).

    They try to appear intelligent by quoting fancy stuff, or what I think; have tattoos of famous quotes and look like idiots because they don’t even know what it means. (I’m looking at you Megan Fox).

    If you really are smart you don’t have to show off , people will know it by talking to you and the choices you make. No need to keep saying how smart you are, like a dumbass (to quote Red Forman xD)

    On topic: Charlize is one of the few women who can wear leather and not look like a dominatrix/cheap, nicely done.

  • Sylver

    @saira:

    I wouldn’t talk about being well-read or intelligent until you can write a well-written or intelligent comment. I also hate the way people think about age, just because you turn 40 does not mean you’re drying up. There are actors over 60 and 70 who still get brilliant leading roles. It’s presumptuous to predict what kind of roles *you* think she’s going to end up with.

  • Yum

    Woah, hot outfit!!<3

  • babasama

    So … “around people” are so dumb to understand Nietzsche !
    lol

  • maya

    Wow look at all the haters. Because people praised HER and gave her an Oscar, she was taking herself too seriously? I seem to remember being humble and appreciative about the response to her performance. And if you are the one equating well-read and intelligent with pretentious. She didn’t do that. She’s a reader and very intelligent herself, but she also knows how to laugh at herself.

    Alexander Skarsgard fans need to get over their jealousy and hatred. Don’t know you know they are both single and you could never have him anyway. LOL!

  • smith

    She’s totally a pretentious conceded c(_)nt, trying to make herself feel better by talking bad about other actors. I thought she had more class. If you really are not pretentious Charlize, you would not be putting other actors down . If you are so much better than everyone else, let others say nice things about you! I thought she was a lady, but the more she speaks the more I dislike her. Also, using vulgarity to make your point only shows that you aren’t very intelligent.

  • sid

    @saira: 36 is mid 30s not pushing 40. She’s actually getting more roles than ever now and is more sought after than ever before in her career.

    She didn’t say being intelligent and well-read makes you pretentious, did she? Obviously you’re not smart enough to comprehend that from reading her quote. She was calling out actors who take themselves too seriously and quote philophers only to impress people.

  • sid

    @smith: Oh give it a rest. She’s not calling out actors by their name. She’s speaking in general terms. What was so wrong with what she said? So she should like pretentious actors who take themselves seriously? She didn’t say anything most cool people aren’t thinking. Guess she can’t win with you. Intelligent people swear all the time.

  • DarkShadow

    Well not everyone is as smart and perfect as you Charlize..jeez, what a dumb cow.

  • ron

    Let me get this straight, so if you quote Nietzshe because he inspires you, you don’t live life and you are pretentious? Ha, no wonder she’s a single mom. It takes much more than good looks.

  • jerseyboy

    man, she’s dumb as fahk..you’ll never hear Angelina Jolie say stupid crap like that..v.ery few beautiful intelligent women out there

  • celeste

    she has a cold aura about her . i have a feeling she’s a real biotch to be around

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @smith:

    you are being ridiculous. Who exactly are you even standing up for? Looking for a reason to whine?

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @ron:

    she CHOSE to stay single. She is not looking for anyone right now, but you can bet she can find a boyfriend much faster than you can find your sunglasses.

  • sarah

    @jerseyboy:

    Charlize Theron has been named UN Messenger of Peace by Ban Ki Moon, has been honored by Nelson Mandela personally, as well as president Mebki and Zuma has been rewarded for her human right activism, has been rewarded by for her smart powerful roles with a powerful messages like North Country, The Valley of Ellah, Battle in Seattle, her documentay about Cuba that she produced…read her interviews about it, she doesn’t play in stupid violent action pop corn flicks and then come talk peace and prentend to be someone smart, she is not a wild lunatic freak with a weird past and homewrecker who needs to proove constantly to the world she is a saint, she doesn’t need to clean her image, she has nothing to hide, she is one of the most smart intelligent down to earth talented actor of our generation, with all the success and the accomplishement she has, she doesn’t take herself seriously that a sign of someone intelligent.

    @maya:

    Don’t hate on the Skars! You can also be a fan of both CT and AS! xD
    And since the CT/Skars rumors have been denied by both parties multiple times now, and there’s a video of AS touching another woman in funny places, it is highly unlikely people still believe they are dating. So don’t think the haters here are necessarily AS-fans, jealous of CT, more trolls who don’t understand CT’s quotes. Or dislike CT for being awesome. Some people can’t understand awesomeness.

    And Smith; you say using vulgarity shows you are not intelligent? Maybe you should read your own comment; especially the first part of the first sentence is really great: ‘She’s totally a pretentious conceded c(_)nt’. c(_)nt? If you were an intelligent human being, you would have used a different word, since using vulgarity shows unintelligence.

  • Whycantipost

    @jerseyboy:

    I love Angie, but her quotes are way more outrageous. Look up interviews before she was with Brad.

    She wanted to kill herself so she hired a hitman, cancelled last minute.
    She has been in a mental hospital.
    She had sex involving knives.
    She wore a pendant with BBT’s blood around her neck.
    During her wedding with J.L.Miller she wrote his name on her shirt with her own blood.
    etc etc etc

    Not saying this to hate on Angelina, because I think she is awesome. The crazy-part she used to have (or keeps well hidden now:p) is what made me love her in the first place. I actually hate that she made a complete turn around, being all holy saint and all now (and her movies were better earlier on, she was brilliant in Girl Interrupted and Gia). But maybe it makes her happy (and this is completely off-topic) xD

  • tasha

    @jerseyboy: what is stupid about not liking pretentious people? And lmao Angelina has the most ridiculous quotes in history. She was doing the same thing Megan Fox has been doing to show shes some bad girl. Giving away too much info.

    Charlize is no nonsense and I respect that. Sorry some of you are too dumb to get her. She rocks.

  • Stone

    Charlize you have won me over for life! I will keep watching your movies until you are old and wrinkly at 100 year old! xD

  • Helen

    WOW.
    SEXY.
    Another new look for Charlize Theron.
    That is why I like CT so much. Some stars walk with the same look from event to event but Charlize always manages to add something new.
    Well, this dress is not for me. I would look silly in it but CT looks really hot.
