It’s flesh-colored beards vs. method eyebrows! Based on unglamorous roles in movies like Monster and In The Valley Of Elah, we know Charlize Theron must take “reality” very seriously. This devotion to facial grit helps explain why The Hills bothers her so much—not to mention why she approves of the running mascara. The Oscar winner went off on the show recently in an interview with MTV:
So I watched a couple episodes. I was doing a world tour at the time, so I watched them in a couple languages. I realized that this f—ing show is huge. Now I’m going to ask you a question: Why?
…Why is it so big? It’s about nothing! This is a free country. Freedom of speech! You can tell me right now to my face that Reindeer Games was a piece of shit. That’s totally fine. But The Hills is about nothing. I think the girls are beautiful and when they cry their mascara runs and that’s real, but I don’t get it!
I am a nana. I’ll just take it. I am a nana. Maybe I need to watch the shows some more.
With her “nana” caveats and willingness to admit that the 2000 Ben Affleck “thriller” Reindeer Games was less than stellar (she shows her boobies in it, though!), it should be hard for anyone to mind that Theron fails to see the je ne sais qua that has made the show such a massive success. Except Spencer. He’ll be pissed.
