Melbourne: Charlize Theron has revealed that she is not an alcoholic and does not swear like a sailor.
During an interview in a New York hotel, the 37-year-old actress laughed when it was pointed out that most articles written about her focus not just on her beauty, but her references to enjoying a drink and regular use of profanity.
“I’m not an alcoholic and I don’t swear that much. Do I?,” a website quoted her as saying.
“Just because I fall it doesn’t mean I’m drunk. I feel like people love to write about that because it is sells magazines and it is shocking. Look, I’ve learned this is not a dress rehearsal and you have to live life the way you want to. I don’t want to be 80 on my death bed and say ‘Gosh, I wished I lived my life’. I’m living my life. I don’t think there’s a rule book. I feel so blessed I get to do a job I love and people actually pay me to do it. I don’t know how in the hell it happened,” she added.
