Charlize Theron becomes open about the dangers of being an actress in Hollywood.
The actress spoke on Friday at Comic-Con @ Home on the “Evolution of a Bada – s” panel and reported on her experience in action films – a male-dominated genre.
The 44-year-old Theron drew from her experience with the remake of the robbery film “The Italian Job” from 2003 and from her “unfair” treatment during the preparation phase of the film.

“It became clear to me that there are still so many misunderstandings among women in this genre,” recalled the star of the “Old Guard” at the virtual round table.
“The only good thing about this experience was that there was real pressure to do these stunts with the actors – and it was the first time I had anything like that,” said Theron. “But there was a very unfair process involved. I was the only woman with a group of men and I remember that I had kept the schedule in pre-production lively and they had scheduled me to do more auto training for six weeks than any of the men. “

The Oscar winner said that she considered that she couldn’t learn as much during the same training period as her male colleagues.
“It was just so insulting, but it was also the thing that started a real fire under my A– and I thought, ‘Okay, you wanna play this game? Let’s go,'” she continued. “My goal was to overtake all these guys. I vividly remember Mark Wahlberg, who came in the middle of one of our training sessions and had to throw up because he was so sick of doing 360s.”

“I don’t think I’ll ever recover from making this film,” Theron quipped about her now iconic role as a furiosa.
“It is the responsibility of handing over this baton that it is not just about you,” she added. “Listen, it’s still disproportionate for our male colleagues out there, and we need to keep putting pressure on our industry to change that.” ”

“I want my two young girls to grow up and not even think that this is strange or unusual or strange,” thought Theron. “I want this to be normalized.”
