Charlize Theron Criticizes Hollywood's Unrealistic Standards

"Actress Charlize Theron hates the fact there is an 'unrealistic standard' of what a woman over 40 should look like.

The Mad Max: Fury Road star celebrated the milestone birthday in August last year (15), but despite her flawless features, she admits to still feeling a pressure to look a certain way.

'We live in a society where women wilt and men age like fine wine,' she told Britain's GQ magazine. '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,' she explains." - via The Belfast Telegraph
