Charlize Plays Cowgirl

Charlize Theron looks beautiful as Vogue's October cover girl where she manages to make cowboy hats and chaps look glamorous and sexy. Charlize has proven that she's much more than just another pretty face and in the article she talks about her frustrations with Hollywood's obsession with looks and exposure. Here are highlights:

  • "Doing press on North Country really pissed me off. 'Yet another transformation!' And I was like, I didn't do anything! I went into a mine and I got dirty. I was doing press in Rome, and I had to walk out of one interview. The journalist said, 'Another ugly role!' Then I heard Bill Maher make a joke about it on TV. 'You know what, Charlize? Seriously, like, we get it. Enough with the ugly roles.' I just went, It's so unfair. I understand what happened with becoming Aileen. But to try to put that on every other character I play? It's like I have to walk such a fine line because I don't want people to think I'm a one-trick pony."
  • "...but there's a sadness in that the longer you stay in this career, the harder it becomes to get people to sit in a theater and not focus on your looks. Maybe that's why I try to keep my private life so private and why I don't want to be an InTouch celebrity. It's why I don't have any patience for paparazzi. It's just not something that helps me at all."
  • Charlize makes a good point but like any actress, you have to deal with highs and lows, even if it means suffering through some backlash. Besides, she's been rewarded twice with Oscar nominations (and one win) so she must be doing something right.
