Charlize Theron Turns Off The Charm, Turns On The Venom In Young Adult

|

This is pretty much what we imagine happened to all the mean girls after high school. And we’re loving it! The trailer for Charlize’s Theron’s Young Adult debuted today, and we are pretty psyched for its release on Decemeber 9. Theron reportedly plays Mavis Gary, a down-and-out young adult writer who returns to her home town to seduce her (now married)(and child-having) high school ex.

Hijinks and terribly unflattering lipstick ensue! We love her co-stars, the adorable Patrick Wilson and the excellent comedian Patton Oswalt, but based on the trailer, don’t you find Charlize’s character slightly less sympathetic than she was in Monster, even though technically speaking she was playing a serial killer in that one? Just us then? But she almost won an Oscar for it! Okay, we’ll stop.
