Charlize Theron: It's So Hard Being This Hot!

Break out the violins, people.

Charlize Theron has a very sad story to tell...

Charlize Theron GQ Cover

The actress graces the latest cover of GQ and opens up to that publication about her struggles in the entertainment world, blaming a lack of recent roles on her tremendous looks.

Really. She says this.

"Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that's the end of the story," Theron explains.

"How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, f--king, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I've been in the room and pretty people get turned away first."

This may be true.

But does Theron really think she has it worse off than actresses who are not as sexy as she is?

We're talking about one of Esquire's Sexiest Women in the World here.

This is one of those times when Theron probably should have just kept her opinion to herself.

Added Theron:

"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."

Again, there is a lot of truth to this statement.

Older women definitely have more trouble remaining relevant in the entertainment industry than their male counterparts.

But the person behind this message should maybe not be a 40-year old, coming off a starring role in one of 2015's best-reviewed movies, who is unquestionably one of the best looking people on the planet.
