Charlize Theron: “…Financing big big movies as a woman in my Forties…!” – ‘Fast & Furious 8’
It’s good to be bad on the big screen. And oddly practical for real life, says Charlize Theron who plays a criminal psychopath in the latest Fast and the Furious instalment. “It lets all [the built up aggression out]. Plus you learn how to really manipulate people and prey on their fears and insecurities, stuff that’s very useful for modern life. Not that I’ll be putting into practice, I wouldn’t have the talent.” Meeting the South African Oscar-winner, it’s not her statuesque looks or her imposing presence that stands out. It’s actually her laidback sense of humour.
