“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” actress was not afraid to share her views about the reverse prejudice of Hollywood. She mentioned, “It would be a lie to say there is less worry for women as they get older than there is for men… It feels (like) there’s this unrealistic standard of what a woman is supposed to look like when she’s over 40.”
The actress who was not afraid to shed her blonde hair for the role in “Mad Max: Fury Road” also revealed that women have been complacent for so long. Things are changing now. “We live in a society where women wilt and men age like fine wine. And, for a long time, women accepted it. We were waiting for society to change, but now we’re taking leadership,” she said.
As far as her height is concerned, Charlize Theron said it’s a hindrance for her to get roles. Some roles do come her way, but the standard of beauty is such that she does not get a fair chance in many cases.
