Charlize Theron is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Would she ruin those looks by going under the knife? Uh, no.
Charlize Theron might play an evil queen obsessed with youth and beauty in Snow White and the Huntsman, but in real life she’s not that concerned with the tell-tale signs of aging. The actress — featured in an Interview cover story with Kristen Stewart — said she doesn’t plan on going under the knife to fix any sags or wrinkles, thanks to a healthy sense of self instilled in her by her mother.
“I’m so grateful that I was raised by a mother who really instilled in me that my moral compass and achievements all had to come from a real place that had nothing to do with my beauty or how I looked. That was very big for her,” Theron said in the interview.
The South Africa-born beauty does recognize the signs of aging, though.
“I’m also now in my mid-thirties, so I look in the mirror and my face is changing, and I have a different relationship all of a sudden with myself. Your face changes, things change — that’s just kind of what happens,” she joked.
The adoptive mother of baby Jackson admitted that she might change her mind as she ages into her twilight years.
“Maybe it’s different when you’re in your mid-sixties. I don’t know, so I don’t want to make statements about where I’m gonna be in 30 years,” Theron said. “But as of right now, I definitely have a different relationship with the way I look. It’s not all-consuming. But I’m also human so I have days when I look in the mirror and go, ‘All right … Things are definitely changing.’ I can see that.”
