In an interview with British GQ, out today, Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron expressed a sentiment to which I personally relate: It’s hard being a gorgeous actress.

“Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that’s the end of the story,” she said. “How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, fucking, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first.”

I wouldn’t change anything about that statement, because I get it.
