[dropcap]W[/dropcap]e can all relate to being just too darn gorgeous to get any jobs, right?
Yeah, not so much. In a recent interview with British GQ, Charlize Theron expresses feelings of woe towards being too attractive.
“How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, f–ing, gown-wearing eight-foot model?” Theron said. “When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first.”
Right. Though casting based on looks is definitely rampant in Hollywood, it more often goes the other way. Women especially are pressured to look flawless and svelte in order to even gain access to an audition.
A while back, a video went viral that featured female actresses reading real casting calls. The video showcases a funny and heartfelt look at what it’s like to be a struggling woman in Hollywood.
Other actresses have spoken up on being too pretty to get the good roles. Keira Knightley stated that she almost lost the role of Elizabeth Bennet in Pride & Prejudice due to director Joe Wright finding her too beautiful. The key word here, however, is “almost.”
Other actresses like Megan Fox claimed that complaining about being too pretty is ridiculous. “It pisses me off when people f–ing complain that I’m too beautiful to get a part,” Fox said. “That’s bullsh*t. You wouldn’t be working if you weren’t attractive.”
Surely being beautiful comes with many pitfalls, like never being able to buy your own drinks at a bar or consistently having attractive men hold doors open for you. But maybe next time Theron should just enjoy the fact that she’s landing roles in the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road and the upcoming The Huntsman: Winter’s War.

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]here are a million ways to judge what’s going on in this situation, but we’ll try to give Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky (known for directing projects like Black Swan) the benefit of the doubt. Because they’re dating. Which is
weird totally not weird at all.
Rumors first started over the summer when they were seen out at lunch together in New York City in August. At first, people thought it might be strictly business since the two were currently working on his still untitled film. It had to be business, right? She’s 26 and he’s 47; that’s totally incompatible. Right?
However, the truth has come out. Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky are dating.
A source said, “Jennifer and Darren have tried to keep things low-key and under wraps, but they are really into each other. Recently Jennifer was working on a grueling project and she relied on Darren for support and they were in constant contact. It seemed to show they were the real deal.”
A friend of Jennifer Lawrence also confirmed the news to People magazine, saying, “They’ve been hanging out and are casually dating.”
