“I would like to play characters like those of De Niro and Nicholson”

We recently told you about Charlize Theron’s childhood drama. In fact, her mother killed her father to save her from her constant violence and abuse. The example of such a strong woman made the actress what she is today, always ready for new challenges in the world of acting and beyond.

It seems however, that Charlize Theron isn’t too happy with the way female roles are written. In his opinion, in fact, the male characters are constructed with a greater psychological depth and their inner conflicts are represented in a much more profound way.

“I remember a time in the past, in my career, when much younger. I realized that male actors were more likely to be able to explore different roles, especially of human beings with defects, the actors could always interpret characters who lived through many conflicts, who were messed up, ugly, complexed and who had all those human qualities, which we don’t always admit we have, but which are actually part our. And I’ve always thought why can’t I do it too? Why can’t I explore such complex and complicated female characters? I would like to play characters like those of Robert De Niro and Jack Nicholson“.

In virtue of these statements, if you want, take a look at the best performances of Charlize Theron.
