Charlize Theron is so, so gorgeous. I mean, just look at her on the cover of British GQ and tell me this South African beauty isn’t one of the most stunning women on this planet.
The May issue of @BritishGQ is out this Thursday 7 April, featuring @charlizeafrica! Last year, she was the one-armed, rough-riding rig-jockey who drove Mad Max: Fury Road to the least likely Oscars sweep in Hollywood history. Now, South Africa’s lost diamond tells GQ why superhuman beauty doesn’t open every door.

The Mad Max star opens up in her interview with the magazine, explaining how unfathomable beauty isn’t necessarily always a positive thing. There can be some major downside to looking as good as she does. As she explains, “Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that’s the end of the story. How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, f@ing, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first.”
I mean, that sort of sounds like a good problem to have… no? Charlize goes on to explain, “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. It would be a lie to say there is less worry for women as they get older than there is for men… It feels there’s this unrealistic standard of what a woman is supposed to look like when she’s over 40.”
