There is a certain amount of pressure on women in the entertainment industry to look good at all times these days and, as these beautiful women start to get older and new, young and beautiful women begin to come through, they begin to feel this pressure even more than ever before. That is one of the reasons why we see women having cosmetic surgery at a younger age on a more regular basis, as they try to compete with these younger women.
One woman who has been considered one of the most beautiful women in the world for many years now, is the beautiful, talented and successful actress Charlize Theron, who still has the looks to rival women half her age. Charlie turned 39 last month and, while she has acknowledged the beauty industry focusing on 20-year-old stars, she has admitted that she is actually looking forward to turning 40 next year.
Theron explained, "It's ironic that we've built the beauty world around 20-year-olds, when they have no f*****g concept about wisdom, what life is about, having a few relationships below (their) belt and feeling hardships, to grow into (their) skin and feel confident within (themselves) and to feel the value of who (they) are, not because of a man or because of something like that. And I think that's such a beautiful thing."
She added, "And that's why I think people say women come into their prime in their 40s. And then for some reason our society just wants to go - it's like a dead flower. It's like we wilt for some reason. And men are like fine wines - the older they get, the better they get. It's such a misconception, and it's such a lost opportunity because that's when I think women are really in the true moment of their sensuality."
Charlize Theron will next appear on the big screen in the movie Mad Max: Fury Road, which will open on May 15, 2015 in both the US and the UK.
