Los Angeles: Oscar-winner Charlize Theron says she does not miss her "fat, plump face" of her 20s and loves getting older.
The 39-year-old beauty, however, says she has her moments when she does not like looking in a mirror but has come to love her appearance now.
"I've loved getting older; I really have," the actress told Red magazine. "That doesn't mean I don't have moments when I look in the mirror and find myself going, 'Oh my god,' but I'm much more at ease looking at myself now than when I was 20 and I had gorgeous skin and a fat, plump face. I looked at myself then and I didn't appreciate any of it.
"Also, there was something about my beauty at that time that almost felt like it was waiting to be this age. I was so desperate to, like, have some kind of experience in my life, like not feeling that I came from the world of modeling. It was like I was waiting to look at my face and see life," Theron said.
