The passage of time, especially when it comes to facial features, is an extremely personal topic, and the world is basically divided between those who seek to interrupt the natural course of years through surgery and those who go on a journey instead. aging, appreciating every sign of time, as Anna Magnani told her makeup artist: “Leave me all the wrinkles, don’t remove any. It took me forever to make them!” Charlize Theron, at 48 (her birthday was Aug. 7), appears to be joining this second group, she tells Allure magazine in an Aug. 18 interview.

“My face is changing and I love the fact that it’s not just changing, it’s getting older,” the actress said, adding, “People think I had a facelift. They say to me: “What did you do with your face?”. I reply: “I’m just getting old! This does not mean that she resorted to bad plastic surgery. That’s exactly what’s happening.” The conversation then expanded to the issue of the differences between male and female aging: “I have always had problems with the fact that men of a certain age are compared to fine wines, and women to cut flowers,” said Charlize Theron. , adding: “I despise this concept and want to fight it. I also think that women want to age in a way that suits them. I think we need to be a little more empathetic about how we all walk our path.”

With a hint of irony, he concluded, “What really annoys me is that now if I’m doing an action movie and I get injured, it takes a lot longer to recover than it did when I was 20 years old. More than a face, I wish I had a body when I was 25 so I could just throw myself against a wall and not feel pain the next day. Now if I don’t train for three days and go back to the gym, I won’t be able to walk.”
