Charlize Theron is set to celebrate a milestone birthday: on August 7, she’s going to turn 40. In Hollywood, that’s a tough age for actresses thanks to Hollywood’s ageism, so how is Charlize, who also recently split from Sean Penn, feeling about her upcoming birthday?
The ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and ‘Dark Places’ star isn’t letting it bother her one bit.
People are so concerned for me. I’m so happy to be in my 40s and not be in my 20s and worried if I fit into my skinny jeans or whether I will be able to get into that club.”
YES. Go, Charlize!
She’s enjoying her life with her son, three-year-old Jackson (whom she’s pictured with in these photos).
It’s so nice to just be in love with your couch and make cheesy sandwiches and just enjoy life. It’s been great.”
Good for Charlize for not falling for the whole “you’re life is over at 40” trap that so many women seem to be pressured into these days. She still has a thriving movie career: she just had a big studio movie come out (‘Mad Max’) and has a compelling drama coming out called ‘Dark Places.’ It’s available On Demand right now and will hit theaters on August 7, Charlize’s birthday. The stars of ‘Gone Girl’ (another film adaptation of a Gillian Flynn novel) scored Oscar nominations. Charlize might have to get ready for the red carpet again next winter! I’d say 40 is looking pretty good for her :).
