Charlize Theron on Her Oscar Movie 'Monster': None Of Us Got Paid & We Worked Our Balls Off

Charlize Theron and her mom chat it up while walking back to their car after a yoga class on Wednesday (April 15) in Los Angeles.

The 39-year-old actress recently took the cover of Esquire magazine, where she chatted about her boyfriend Sean Penn!

Charlize also talked about her movie Monster, which she won an Oscar for several years ago.

“I’m very proud of it. We couldn’t sell that movie to save our lives—we were going to sign a deal to just release it on video. A lot of people didn’t want to buy in to how horrific her story was. ‘You can’t do that’ is all I kept hearing when we were editing. But what if that’s the truth? You should be able to tell her story as a human being with all her flaws. You should be able to do that. People give in. They end up with a movie that’s not the movie they set out to go and make. People buckle. Not that we had any ground to stand on, but we never buckled,” Charlize explained. “We believed that we had worked hard enough to earn some kind of understanding. That’s something that’s very rare. Very rare. That was sh*t-scary, to invest that much time and go, I’d rather just sign this off to Blockbuster knowing it’s the movie we set out to make. None of us got paid. We worked our balls off. This should be the prize.”

Charlize Theron Talks Marriage & Sean Penn: 'He's Hot!'

Charlize Theron takes the cover of Esquire magazine’s May 2015 issue and looks amazing.

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

On being friends with Sean Penn first: “We’ve been friends for twenty years. He was married, I was in a long-term relationship, our spouses—not regularly, but we were in each other’s lives. I think our friendship stemmed from mutual respect—more on my end, because I really didn’t have a body of work twenty years ago, but my love and passion for making films—that was our common ground. And also, Sean liked to have conversations outside of just making movies. That’s sometimes hard to find among friends here, and that’s where our friendship really blossomed. I think we’re both finding ourselves at this moment in our lives kind of shocked. Both of us. Just when you think you know how things are supposed to go down, life just kicks you in the ass and guess what? You don’t have a clue. It is nice to be in something where the friendship came first. I’ve never had that. There’s a weight to the relationship already that I don’t think you have when you just meet somebody and enter a relationship. There’s a foundation of twenty years that the two of us have shared with each other in all these different ways that is really the foundation of something that has brought a lot of beautiful things into my life. We get so stuck in wanting to predict the future that we forget the moment that we’re in. And the moment that we’re in is just really good. It’s really good, really nice.”

On the possibility of marriage: “The marriage thing is always so strange to me anyway. I love the possibility of anything, but I’m really enjoying myself and the everyday moment and how that coincides with my son and my life and my friends. I’m a very, very, very lucky girl. Very lucky. He’s hot. He is hot. How do you say that in an interview? You’re a forty-year-old woman sounding like a sixteen-year-old. There’s something beautiful about that, but you lack the articulation of really saying what it’s like when somebody walks into your life and makes you see something that you really never thought you’d be able to see. If somebody had said to me, ‘This is what it will be,’ I would’ve said, ‘F*ck off.’ As you can see, it makes me smile.””

On Mad Max co-star Tom Hardy: “We f*ckin’ went at it, yeah….It was like a family road trip that just never went anywhere. We never got anywhere. We just drove. We drove into nothingness, and that was maddening sometimes.”

Charlize Theron Opens Up About a 'Very Traumatic Experience' In Her Past

Charlize Theron is opening up about a tragedy in her past that helped her connect to her role in Dark Places.

When the 39-year-old actress was just 15 years old, her father Charles attacked her mother Gerda. Gerda shot Charles to death in an act of self defense. Charlize referenced this horrific incident in a recent interview with French television network TF1.

“I did experience a very traumatic experience, an event, in my life. And somehow it’s formed me,” Charlize said. “My character goes through this ordeal when she’s 8 years old, and it really is examining what trauma does to a child, especially when she’s expected to speak about it. And that’s definitely something I can relate to, that’s definitely something I’ve experienced in my life. As far as events go, they’re very similar. There’s a murder [in the film], while my situation was a very unfortunate incident with self-defense.”

In a past 2004 interview, Charlize also spoke about the incident, saying “I think, for me, it took a long time to sink in, what had really happened, because you just don’t think stuff like that will ever happen to you. You always think it happens to somebody else. It’s a part of me, but it doesn’t rule my life.”
