I’m pretty hot: Theron


South African actress Charlize Theron has criticised her fellow celebrities for lacking ‘decorum’ but described herself as being ‘pretty hot’. “I don’t have hang-ups about the way I look. I can see myself in the mirror when I’m all done up and think I look pretty hot,” Telegraph quoted her as saying. “But I can see myself every day and see this round Dutch doll face. We’ve got so crazy about our faces and our bodies. I guard my privacy partly

because I like to keep my head free from all that paranoia,” she said.

The 32-year-old actress had won an Oscar for her role as a serial killer in Monster, where she had to put on so much weight that she was virtually unrecognisable. “I’m not super-skinny. I have curves and they belong on my body. I put on two stone for Monster but I also lost two stone when I played a woman with cancer in Sweet Sixteen,” she told Elle magazine.

“I hated being fat but I also hated being so thin. I went down to a size 6 and I just felt completely uncomfortable. I remember being cold and wrapping my arms around my body and feeling ribs and bone. I felt totally unsexy. Women have to work out what makes them feel comfortable, whether it’s about their weight or their clothes.

“Actually, it upsets me the way a lot of so-called celebrities just completely exploit themselves. I don’t get it. There is a decorum that I believe in that just doesn’t exist in Hollywood any more,” she added. — Agencies
