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 caseā€”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.”
