This is Charlize Theron in the upcoming film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2009 novel, Dark Places. Charlize plays Libby Davis whose life is pretty much destroyed by the fact that her brother supposedly killed her entire family years before. It’s a bit weird, as is Flynn’s MO, but will probably be pretty good.
Here’s the thing: judging from this picture, they’ve got Charlize – who yes, is beautiful and glamorous and all those fancy things – look rather plain and homely. If you know the Academy, then you know this might just be the recipe for another Oscar! She got one for Monster. Can she do it again?
