Charlize Theron Dishes On Steamy Scene with 'Atomic Blonde' Co-Star Sofia Boutella: 'I Just Loved It'

Charlize Theron is opening up about getting to lock licks with her co-star Sofia Boutella in steamy sex scene in their anticipated film Atomic Blonde!

“I just loved it,” the 41-year-old actress expressed in a recent interview with Variety. “For so many reasons: My frustration of how that community is represented in cinema, or lack thereof. And also, it made perfect sense. It just suited her.”

“It just felt there was a way through that relationship and the fact that it was a same-sex relationship to show a woman not having to fall in love, which is one of those female tropes. ‘It’s a woman; she better fall in love — otherwise, she’s a whore!’,” Charlize concluded.

Pictured: Charlize spotted keeping it cool and casual as she makes her way out of a WeHo Salon after a hair appointment on Thursday (July 13) in West Hollywood.

FYI: Charlize is wearing a B Collection by Bobeau top.

Charlize Theron 'Felt a Little Unstable' After Winning Her Oscar

Charlize Theron is looking as fabulous as ever on the cover of Variety.

Here’s what the 41-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the success of Wonder Woman: “We’ve had moments like this, where women really showcase themselves and kind of break glass ceilings. And then we don’t sustain it. Or there’s one movie that doesn’t do well, and all of a sudden, no one wants to make a female-driven film….And look, I am ashamed that I’m part of an industry that has never allowed a woman to work with a budget higher than what the budget has been on ‘Wonder Woman.’ That’s so f—ing caveman-like. I am always hoping that this is the movie that’s going to change it and keep it for us.”

On how winning the Oscar for Monster was challenging: “As far as work goes, it opens up a lot of doors. But also, it’s so overwhelming to have everybody clamoring and saying, ‘This is what you should do.’ There’s so much noise. I felt a little unstable afterwards.”

On following up her Oscar win with Aeon Flux, which flopped: “When ‘Aeon Flux’ came to me, I thought that could be something. I was never completely sold on the entire concept, but I really loved [director] Karyn Kusama’s movie [‘Girlfight’]. So I threw myself into that with the belief that she’s a great filmmaker. And then we f—ed it all up…I just don’t think we really knew how to execute it. And it’s disappointing, but it happens. I’ve been in this business long enough to know that you cannot get it right every time. I might have gotten this right because of that.”

Charlize Theron Tells 'W' Mag It's 'Cathartic to Play a Character Who is Evil'

Charlize Theron is gorgeous as she graces the cover of W magazine‘s August issue!

The 41-year-old actress was interviewed by Television editor Lynn Hirschberg about her role in the upcoming action thriller Atomic Blonde.

On her Atomic Blonde character being like James Bond: “Lorraine is a little bit like Bond. He drinks a lot of martinis, doesn’t he? Shaken or not stirred, or whatever the fu*k they are. Yeah, Lorraine and James are equally messed up.”

On the fighting scenes in Atomic Blonde: “I grew up taking ballet. I love discipline. I function really well within the parameters of discipline and knowing what to do. For instance, you have to throw yourself into ballet 100 percent, and that was really good for me as a young girl. But other than Teri Hatcher, I had only connected my fist with a girl’s face once in my entire life, so I had to do a lot of training for this film.”

On taking on villainous roles: “Look, I’ve always been fascinated by abhorrent behavior. I have a real interest in why people do horrible things. I read a lot of books and am fascinated by whether deviant behavior is caused by nature or nurture. There’s a part of me that wants to understand that darkness, but I can’t really understand it. So, it is cathartic to play a character who is evil. It’s a free pass for your soul: Nothing bad is going to happen, and you can explore what it would be like to be in that skin.”
