Charlize Theron Clarifies 'Pretty People' Casting Statement

Charlize Theron poses for a silly pic with Universal Pictures Chairman Donna Langley at the 2016 Will Rogers Pioneer of the Year dinner during CinemaCon on Wednesday (April 13) in Las Vegas.

The 40-year-old actress recently clarified a comment she made in British GQ about it being hard for pretty people to get roles in Hollywood.

“It was such an incredible misquote. I’m somewhat shocked by how I got so misquoted,” Charlize told Access Hollywood. “What I was really trying to say was people always ask me why I play so many characters that are so deconstructed, and my point with that was that how many characters really are there out there for a woman wearing a gown? You have to kind of play real people.”

“Context is everything,” Charlize added. “And if somebody doesn’t really get that or it doesn’t translate, people can really kind of read stuff so wrongly.”
