Charlize Theron Doesn’t Understand What’s Viola Davis’ Problem

Charlize Theron Doesn't Understand What's Viola Davis' Problem

I confess that originally I was going to call this post “Charlize Theron is a dingbat” but why make the obvious so…obvious?

Below is a brief segment of a recent roundtable discussion with a few of the most prominent actors working today: George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender, Viola Davis and Theron. Towards the beginning Davis talks about the struggles being a middle aged black actress trying to survive in the business and that even Halle Berry finds it hard as well.

This evidently stuns Theron who can’t understand why Davis finds it hard, for black actress such as herself, to find work because she’s as “hot as shit” 

Now remember we talking about Charlize Theron here. Someone who most likely can’t pass a mirror without staring at herself for hours.

The same actress who been cast as the “hot chick” in most of the films she’s been in. The same actress who had to gain weight and ugly herself up in Monster so that she could be taken seriously as an actress.

And oh yes, the same person who was once infamously photographed smoking weed through an apple bong, So maybe we should give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she was high

Then again maybe she’s just a dingbat
