Charlize Theron has strongly denied getting a facelift, bluntly saying, “B–h, I’m Just Aging! This is just what happens.”

She’s quite taken aback by the realization that she’s now 48 and seems more at ease with aging than others. In an Allure interview, she talked about being wrongly accused of not just having a facelift, but a bad one.

She clarified that she’s simply getting older. “My face is changing, and I love that my face is changing and aging [but] people think I had a facelift. They’re like, ‘What did she do to her face?’ I’m like, ‘B—h, I’m just aging! It doesn’t mean I got bad plastic surgery. This is just what happens,'” Theron explained.

She didn’t shy away from discussing the broader topic of aging, either. Theron commented on the different standards for men and women, saying, “I’ve always had issues with men aging like fine wines and women like cut flowers … Women want to age in their own way. We should be more understanding about everyone’s aging journey.”

Charlize Theron has given a lot of thought to how aging and body changes affect her career and personal life. She noticed a stark difference in her body’s response to weight gain for roles at different ages. At 27, she gained weight for her role in “Monster” and lost it easily after filming. However, gaining a similar amount for “Tully” at age 43 was a different story.

Theron shared, “I called my doctor and I said, ‘I think I’m dying because I cannot lose this weight.’ And he was like, ‘You’re over 40. Calm down. Your metabolism is not what it was.’ Nobody wants to hear that.”

Another challenge Theron faces is the reaction of her two daughters to her public image. They often see a nearly-naked image of her in a 10-foot Dior ad at the airport.

Discussing her oldest daughter’s reaction, Theron said, “She’s like, ‘Oh, my God, Mom! You’re not even wearing a shirt.’ I was like, ‘You’re right. I didn’t even realize.’ She’s like, ‘All my friends are gonna see this. I mean, can you just wear a shirt?’”
