Charlize Theron Thinks Survival Of Women Is Hard In Action Movies
Charlize Says After her Experience of the ‘The Italian Job’ movie
Charlize Theron- gets candid with the jeopardy of being a woman performer in Hollywood’s action movies. In her interview with a local outlet, she spoke about her working experience in the male-dominated genre of Hollywood – action movies!
Theron shed light on her experience working in the 2003 heist film ‘The Italian Job’ where she was broken by the ‘unfair’ treatment during the shooting of the film.
The 44- year-old starlet started her virtual conversation by saying, “I realized there was still so much misconception around women in the genre."
“The only good thing that came out of that experience was that there was a real pressure to pull off those stunts with the actors – and that was the first time I experienced anything like that,” Theron added.
Talking about the ‘unfair’ treatment, Charlize stated, “But there was a very unfair process that went with that. I was the only woman with a bunch of guys, and I remember vividly getting the schedule in our preproduction and they had scheduled me for six weeks more car training than any of the guys."
Theron summarized this idea with the point that she might lagged behind her male co-stars and she (being a woman) is unable to learn in that particular time-frame. Well, that is hurting!
“It was just so insulting, but it was also the thing that put a real fire under my a-- and I was like, 'All right, you guys want to play this game? Let's go," she continued. "I made it a point to out-drive all of those guys. I vividly remember Mark Wahlberg, halfway through one of our training sessions, pulling over and throwing up because he was so nauseous from doing 360s."
Mother of two girls emphasized on gender equality and said, "I want my two young girls to grow up and not even think that this is weird or this is unusual or this is strange, I want this to be normalized."
