Life Charlize Theron chooses roles she is most afraid of By weekster Posted on November 11, 2019 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Assuming a film role, Charlize Theron (44) always assumes a sense of fear. She tells that on Friday to The Hollywood Reporter. “I often like: what the fuck?” According to the actress, “something pure” happens when she reads the script for a possible new role. “Then something just clicks. There is not necessarily a button that makes you think: I have to do this. Often I have something like ‘what the fuck? This is scary, I don’t know anything about this.” Then you can’t stop thinking about it, “says Theron. “The fear really drives it. I love that feeling. I assumed most roles that way,” says the Oscar winner. Nowadays, however, another aspect is involved when choosing a role. “Now that I have children, the logistical aspect is also discussed. Where is filming and what does that mean for my family,” says the mother of two.
