“Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that’s the end of the story,” she said.
“How many roles are out there for a gorgeous, f**king, gown-wearing eight-foot models? When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away.”
However, to score those “meaty roles” she’s gone to some extreme lengths in the past, including shaving her locks for Mad Max: Fury Road.
And how could we ever forget the prosthetics and extra 13 kilos she gained for her Academy Award-winning performance in Monster.
The 40-year-old also spoke out against the outdated standards around ageism.
“We live in a society where women wilt and men age like fine wine. And, for a long time, women accept it,” she said.
“We were waiting for society to change, but now we’re taking leadership.”
“It would be a lie to say there is less worry for women as they get older than there is for men … It feels there’s this unrealistic standard of what a woman is supposed to look like when she’s over 40.”
