Los Angeles: Actress Charlize Theron doesn`t like the company of pretentious actors. She believes in simple living.

"I hate actors who come and quote (philosopher poet Friedrich) Nietzsche. I don`t like pretentious s**t. I like being around people who like to live life and understand the value of it," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.

Theron says she appreciate the actors, who respect their profession and believe in doing good work.

"I like professional actors who show up, do the job and are not a pain in the a** to either myself or the crew," she added.

"I don`t believe in this idea that if you`re f**ked up... that`s the only way to do good work. It`s bulls**t. A professional actor does their homework beforehand and they do their job. Then when it`s all said and done, they have a beer with the crew. That`s what a professional actor does," said the 36-year-old.
