Washington: Charlize Theron has said that she is able to play dark characters so well because she’s “a bitch”.
When the ‘Monster’ actress was told she “plays evil really well” during the ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ panel at WonderCon Saturday, Theron replied with a rather candid response.
“That’s because I’m a bitch! Thank you, that’s so sweet!” Us Magazine quoted her as saying.
“When I came off the Young Adult press tour and then did press for this, someone said, ‘You know, you’ve been playing a lot of evil - may I say bitchy characters.’ We came to the idea that Picasso had his blue period and this is my bitchy period,” she said.
The Oscar-winner, who confirmed last week she is the proud mom of an adopted baby boy, plays the self-centred, vain Queen Ravenna and stars opposite Kristen Stewart, who portrays the role of Snow White, her stepdaughter.
“It’s amazing that we get to do this!”
“Does it look like we’re having fun? We get to play! We get to put crowns on our heads and scream at people and play mean. It’s amazing, it’s the greatest job ever!” she said.
