Charlize Theron Slams Facelift Rumors

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Theron recently discussed her evolving perspective on aging during an interview with Allure. Having been the face of Dior for over two decades and set to front the brand's new L'Or de J'Ador perfume campaign, the 48-year-old actress shared her embrace of the changes in her appearance. She remarked, "My face is changing, and I love that my face is changing and aging."

Addressing public reactions to her look, the actress countered assumptions about cosmetic procedures, stating, "People think I had a facelift. They're like, 'What did she do to her face?' I'm like, 'B*tch, I'm just aging! It doesn't mean I got bad plastic surgery. This is just what happens.'"

The "Old Guard" actress also voiced her intention to challenge the gender-based "double standards" she perceives in Hollywood, particularly regarding actresses over 40. She expressed frustration with the conventional idea that "men age like fine wines and women like cut flowers." She added, "I despise that concept, and I want to fight against it."

The mother of two further emphasized that women should be allowed to "age in a way that feels right to them." 

"I think we need to be a little bit more empathetic to how we all go through our journey," she added.

Why She Would 'Never' Gain Weight For A Movie Role Again

2020 British Academy Film and Television Awards

Theron also delved into the challenges of shedding weight gained for film roles as she aged. She declared, "I will never, ever do a movie again and say, 'Yeah, I'll gain 40 pounds.' I will never do it again because you can't take it off."

Explaining her stance, she said, "When I was 27, I did 'Monster.' I lost 30 pounds, like, overnight. I missed three meals, and I was back to my normal weight. Then I did it at 43 for Tully in 2018."

While reflecting on the difficulty she encountered, Theron stated, "I remember a year into trying to lose the weight, I called my doctor and I said, 'I think I'm dying because I cannot lose this weight.' And he was like, 'You're over 40. Calm down. Your metabolism is not what it was.' Nobody wants to hear that."
