Love It or Leave It: Charlize Theron is Not a Natural Blonde

You know, one time I was at a hair salon, complaining about my natural dishwater-brown hair (that’s positively lined with white-silver grey streaks), lamenting the fact that it’s neither bright, coppery brown nor bright, golden brown, and one of the stylists let me in on a little secret—see, most brunettes have this dishwater brown hair that I’ve been blessed with, and most blondes aren’t even close to being natural. Well, naturally, this knowledge completely rocked my world, and life was just never the same. The end.

Also, I came across this picture of Charlize Theron, hanging out with her mother for lunch (not pictured), and I instantly appreciated how beautiful this woman actually is, even without her “crowning glory,” or as some people refer to it, “hair.” It’s a rare, rare face that can pull off a f-cking military-grade buzz cut, and Charlize, luckily for her, can totally do it.

Charlize’s hair—love it or leave it?

Charlize Theron Is Super Mad at Kristen Stewart

From Radar:

Charlize Theron has blown a gasket over Kristen Stewart’s scandalous affair with married movie director Rupert Sanders, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

The South African-born beauty, who struck up a friendship with K-Stew during filming of Snow White and the Huntsman, is also close pals with Liberty Ross, the wife of Sanders!

And Kristin’s actions have left Charlize, 36, in a difficult position.

“Charlize is absolutely fuming with Kristen for having an affair with Rupert,” an insider revealed.

“She is very tight with Liberty, has often socialized with the family over dinner and cannot believe Kristin has done this.

“When they were filming Snow White and the Huntsman, Charlize felt like an older sister to Kristin, and they were always sharing advice.

“Charlize confided to her new pal about her adoption plans. She even asked Kristin if she wanted to be her baby Jackson’s godmother – that was how close they were.

“But Charlize had no idea what was going on between Rupert and Kristin and now feels completely betrayed by the whole incident.

“It’s certainly left Charlize between a rock and a hard place, because she feels great sympathy for Liberty and the kids and yet, she has a sisterly love for Kristin.

Ugh, this keeps getting worse and worse. I mean, in the grand scheme of things, I guess the things we heard yesterday were definitely worse, what with Robert Pattinson leaving Kristen and Rupert Sander’s wife’s sad quote, but I wouldn’t have even thought to consider how awkward this must be for everyone involved in Snow White and the Huntsman. The movie did really well, and they were definitely looking at doing a sequel, but I doubt that will happen now. So that’s probably a couple hundred people out of a job, thanks to this affair. I’m not necessarily saying that Kristen and Rupert should have thought about the entire cast and crew of a possible film before fooling around, but man, they should have thought about something.

Love It or Leave It: Charlize Theron’s Head

For the past few weeks, Charlize Theron has been wandering around, wearing hats over her newly shaved head and carrying her adorable son. I didn’t show you pictures or anything because, you know, she kept wearing hats, and how am I supposed to show you pictures of Charlize Theron’s hats when I can keep telling you all about Octomom’s porn?

But today is different. Today, we have a picture of Charlize without the hat:

Charlize shaved her head for her role in Mad Max, and man, what is a great decision. Y’all know that I’m a big fan of short hair, but this is just phenomenal. I’m sure that Charlize’s crazy hotness helps things out quite a bit, but this makes me want to urge every woman to shave her head. Let them beautiful faces shine, ladies*!

*On a completely contradictory note, how the hell am I supposed to grow out short hair? It’s been about two months since I had a trim, and I’m this close to having a mullet.

Who Is The Highest Paid Actress in Hollywood?

A photo of Meryl Streep

Oh, you guys, I’m sorry. When I asked the question of “who is the highest paid actress in Hollywood?” and then put a picture of Meryl Streep right up there at the top, that made it look like Meryl is the highest paid actress, didn’t it? I’m sorry, but it’s just not true. Meryl is on the list, but she’s not at the top. She deserves to be at the top, but she’s not.

Before I let you know the richiest rich lady in Hollywood, let me just show you the top ten list, all right? I’ll go ahead and tack on the amount of money they made in the past year, just so you can cry while you balance your checkbook like I do.

10. Jennifer Aniston – $11 million
9. Kristen Wiig – $12 million
8. Meryl Streep – $12 million
7. Sarah Jessica Parker – $15 million
6. Julia Roberts – $16 million
5. Charlize Theron – $18 million
4. Angelina Jolie – $20 million
3. Sandra Bullock – $25 million
2. Cameron Diaz – $34 million

Ok, but who do you think landed in the number one spot? Who do you think made nearly three times as much as the beloved Meryl Streep? Who do you think made a few million dollars more than Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston combined?

1. Kristen Stewart – $34.5 million

Yes, thanks to them Twilight movies and Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart is the top-earning actress in all of Hollywood. Does anyone else feel physically ill?

Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron Look Amazing for Interview Magazine

Kristen Stewart is on fire. That’s a fact, and there’s no debating it. Whether you love or or you hate her (though you probably should just go for broke and love her no matter how many times she “inappropriately” uses the word f-ck), this interview is awesome and you should probably read the highlights.

Kristen on sexism:

“In personal conversations between director and actor, the male directors that I’ve worked with are just as emotional [as women]. Maybe it’s because I had to start having very intimate conversations with adult men at a very young age in order to get the work, but I’m really comfortable with dudes. I mean, we push boundaries in this business in terms of getting to know people. There are things that directors know about me that people shouldn’t know. But everyone’s really different. I’ve worked with women who I’ve never wanted to tell anything about myself to, and I’ve worked with guys who have been pouring wells of emotion. So emotional availability is not a gender-specific thing.”

On being like Snow White:

“There’s so much that Snow White has been deprived of in terms of having the proper time to really develop and hone who she is. She’s put in jail at the beginning of her life, so she’s a stunted person. She has a really idealized concept of what the world is, and how people should live, and how wonderful things all can be, and there is this debilitating isolation that she feels because she has been locked away in a little cell for seven years. And I can kind of relate to that. There is something . . . It’s not the reason that I wanted to do the movie, but the fans and people who loved Twilight, they do put you on this sort of different plane where you’re not real.”

On Charlize Theron:

“She is unlike anyone I’ve ever encountered. She is one of those people who walks into a room and everyone knows it… She’s a fucking movie star. It’s funny, too, because she always says, “I’m not really a performer.” But I’m like, “Yeah, not at all.” [laughs] She’s an actor and a performer.”

How she knows she’s made it:

“I feel so extremely successful—and not just because I can greenlight a movie now. It’s because I’ve really only worked with people that I truly love, and I’ve only had bad experiences with one or two directors…[What was bad about those experiences…] I think it always boils down to people not being there for the right reasons, and not being there for the same reasons. It’s a miracle when things come together. But sometimes it just doesn’t happen—and when it doesn’t happen, you still have to finish the movie.

Playing an abused woman in ‘Welcome to the Rileys’:

“Playing a character like Mallory [in Welcome to the Rileys] is tough. Not to discredit anyone’s personal situation or actual life, but there are so many examples of girls like that, and a film can very easily become an almost clinical rundown of what leads someone to a certain position. It’s hard to play a part like that because you want everyone who has ever walked in those shoes to be like, “Yeah, I mean, that’s the way it goes . . .” Pity is a really odd thing with abused women. You don’t want anyone to think that you feel bad—even though you might. So it was just interesting to play that part and to work with James. I went down to New Orleans to do the film and lived by myself and trudged around the city. But walking away from that character . . . It probably still hasn’t gone away completely, but for the first little while afterwards, I was so sensitive and touchy in a way that my character would never be. I was so protective and defensive of young girls, and sex in general.

There’s a whole part done by Charlize, too, which you can read here, but I think we’re loving Kristen more than even Charlize these days … or at least, I am, at any rate.

The Cast of Snow White and the Huntsman Reads 50 Shades of Grey

And yes, it’s the most magical thing that ever happened. And by “magical,” I mean “hilarious.” And by “hilarious,” I mean “Charlize Theron is one of the coolest ladies in the business and Kristen Stewart actually smiled and laughed in an interview.” This is the power of the sure-to-be classic tome that is 50 Shades of Grey. It’s undeniable at this point, isn’t it?

If this didn’t convince you that Kristen Stewart is perfect for the lead in the movie, then I don’t know what will. Ooh, and maybe Charlize could play Mrs. Robinson, right? She could also play all the other female roles, and Chris Hemsworth could take over all the male roles while Sam Claflin, the completely adorable guy who plays the prince, could take the role of Christian. That way, everyone could just film the movie during the promotion for Snow White and the Huntsman, and it would undoubtedly be better than any mess they’ll end up making in a studio. Wouldn’t you love to see that movie?

Charlize Theron Doesn’t Want to Hear Your Pretentious Sh-t

A photo of Charlize Theron

I always sort of forget how awesome Charlize Theron is. Isn’t that awful? I know that she’s absolutely gorgeous, and I know that she’s an incredible actress. She always gives great interviews, and she seems like a super fun lady in general, but for whatever reason, whenever I think of my favorite ladies, Charlize never comes to mind. Maybe it’s because she usually stays under the radar? I’m not sure, but I do know that I need to change my ways. This interview helped open my eyes to the extreme glory that is Charlize Theron.

From InStyle magazine via Celebitchy:

On aging: “I don’t feel like I’m aging at all. I don’t think about that stuff. Especially not at 36. I see my face and my body changing, and they’re all changes I’m OK with. Part of me understands I may not be in front of the camera forever, and maybe not just because of age, but because of me. I wouldn’t have started my own production company if I didn’t feel that way.”

Becoming a mom: “So far I’m not surprised by anything about being a mom,” she said. “It’s all pretty great, but that’s what I expected.”

On her single status: “I’m always open to a relationship, but I’m not putting those feelers out there now.”

On having adopted son Jackson: Charlize recalled a letter she’d written when she was 8-years-old. “My mother found [it]. It said, ‘Would you please take me to orphanage, so that I can go and adopt a baby?’ I always knew I would adopt – always… It was never a question that one day I would have a child.”

On what she would do if she could switch careers at her current age: “I would be an amazing butler. I’m very good at organizing a house.”

Being a single mother: “You know, I don’t think any mother aims to be a single mum. I didn’t wish for that, but it happened.”

She’s not looking for a husband: “It’s never been a fantasy of mine. Marriage has never been that important to me. I don’t know why exactly. Some might say it’s because my parents didn’t have a good marriage, but I don’t think so. I treat my relationships like marriages. The ceremony isn’t that important to me,” she adds.

She hates pretentious people: “You know what I can’t stand? I hate actors who come and quote Nietzsche. I don’t like pretentious shit. I like being around people who like to live life and understand the value of it. I need to be around people who understand we’re not curing cancer here. I like professional actors who show up, do the job and are not a pain in the ass to either myself or the crew. I don’t believe in this idea that if you’re f-cked up and Method, that’s the only way to do good work. It’s bullshit. A professional actor does their homework beforehand and they do their job. Then when it’s all said and done, they have a beer with the crew. That’s what a professional actor does.”

That’s it. When I have bestie time with Adele and Khloe Kardashian, Charlize is invited. Seriously, how fabulous is this woman?
