“I look in the mirror and my face is changing,” People magazine quoted her as telling Interview. “I have a different relationship all of a sudden with myself. Your face changes, things change — that’s just kind of what happens,” she said.
However, the Snow White and the Huntsman star does accept her fate. “There are days when I definitely look in the mirror and go, ‘All right, I need to find a cream,’” she reveals — being a major Hollywood star changes the game,” she said.
“It’s hard in this industry, because I think so much importance is put on how you look. “I’m not brave enough to be like, ‘You know what? I’m just going to let it happen. Whatever. I’m so cool with every line on my face’,” she said.
Theron admitted that she wouldn’t go under the knife. “I can’t foresee myself ever going under the knife, but then again, I’m only in my mid-thirties,” she said.
“Maybe it’s different when you’re in your mid-sixties. So I don’t want to make statements about where I’m gonna be in 30 years,” she said. Much of Theron’s acceptance has to do with her mother, who “really instilled in me that my moral compass and achievements all had to come from a real place that had nothing to do with my beauty or how I looked,” she said.
But still, “I definitely have a different relationship with the way I look. It’s not all-consuming. But I’m also human,” she added.
