Charlize Theron Admits She Used to Judge Women As They Aged

Charlize Theron Admits She Used to Judge Women As They Aged

Charlize Theron gives a sexy stare on the cover of W magazine’s May 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 39-year-old Mad Max: Fury Road star had to share:

On aging: “I think, like many women, I was judgmental toward women as they aged. Women, in our society, are compartmentalized so that we start to feel like we’re cut flowers and after a while we will wilt. I realize now that’s not the case”we can celebrate every age. That’s my encouragement to 20-year-olds who are terrified of getting older: Don’t have a nervous breakdown and don’t hit the Chardonnay too hard. Getting older is not that bad.”

On advice she’d give her 20-year-old self: “I would say, ‘Calm down.’ I was always in a rush. I felt like time was going to run out. Now that I’m older, I know I’m not missing out on anything. Now, I go home, and that feels really good. When I hit 30, I realized I didn’t have to please everybody. I could actually enjoy life, which is not a bad thing at all.”

On being bald for Mad Max: “Well, yes, it was really fun to shower with my bald head. You have not showered until you’ve showered hairless. That’s all I have to say.”

    All she is saying is she used to fear aging, fear getting wrinkles that she saw older women having, not that she used to call them names and smirk at them. Being young in Hollywood, I’m sure many twenty year olds there don’t look forward to forty because they’re worried about how it will affect their careers.

  • VanityInsecurity

    um she uses the word judging.. what do you think that means? Passing judgment is a negative thing.. last I heard.. delusional fans.

  • LaCroix

    Can you read & understand properly.. that is not what’s she saying.
