Los Angeles: Charlize Theron, who will be seen helming the role of the evil queen in "Snow White and the Huntsman", says she has always been interested in playing villainous characters.

"We have innately bad human behaviours that sometimes we can explain and justify. It`s easy to say someone`s an as*hole because they had this, this and this happen to them, so we have to forgive them," quoted the 36-year-old as saying.

"But what if someone was just an as*hole? That`s interesting to me," she added.

Theron will star alongside Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth in "Snow White and the Huntsman", which will release June 1 next year.
