Listen, guys, it’s hard out there for beautiful people, OK? But at least beautiful people spokesperson Charlize Theron is here to draw much-needed awareness to the epidemic. The latest problem? Pretty people aren’t taken seriously enough to get the really good, juicy roles in major films.
“Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them, and that’s the end of the story,” she tells GQ. “How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, f—ing gown-wearing, eight-foot model?
