Theron for a loop

While searching for just the right photo, I happened upon this interview with Charlize Theron, and apparently her surname, at least at home in South Africa, is properly pronounced “Thrown.”

Charlize Theron

Not that I’d argue the point.

Oh, and she’s 35 this weekend. And this was actually my second-choice shot — Below the Beltway has already run my first choice — but the backstory on it is sorta fun. This is from her 2004 appearance on the German TV show Wetten dass, and that’s host Günther Jauch allegedly checking out a tattoo. If you say so, Günther. (Another shot here.)

    Swiss show. It’s the guy who is a German.

    Oh, and on the 3rd picture @ that link she looks 40 at least. In 2004.

    I wonder if she would advocate against beauty as prerequisite for acting profession now, when her skin is no longer as taut and the tendency of her breasts to hang like oblong lard pouches is more pronounced.
    She would risk to appear the fox who cried “the grapes are green”…

    One of the celebrity sites has an occasional roundup of photos sans makeup, and some folks do come off as a trifle scary under those conditions. I tend to think of it simply as a reminder that time is not inclined to cut us any slack — or, conversely, that we, too, could look this good had we the budget for stylists and such.

    Checking out a tattoo, you say? Yeah, right.
