Charlize Theron Rips Beauty Industry for Focusing on 20-Year Olds, Women Over 40 Ignored
Charlize Theron is not too happy with the fashion and beauty industry for focusing on 20-somethig young women's beauty needs, while ignoring women over 40.
Charlize thinks women only ''come into their prime'' in their 40s and wants to know why the beauty industry can't understand their needs, too.
The 39-year-old 'Prometheus' star, who is dating Sean Penn, 54, says 20-year-olds ''have no f**king concept'' about life and believes the beauty industry should focus on older women.
She told Women's Wear Daily (WWD) magazine: ''It's ironic that we've built the beauty world around 20-year-olds, when they have no f***ing 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. And that's why I think people say women come into their prime in their forties.''
The South-African star, who has a two-year-old son, Jackson, also admits she feels a lot more sensual and secure about her looks as she gets older.
She said: ''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.''
The Dior ambassador added: ''I think that women find their strength and power in their sexuality, in their sensuality within, [through] getting older and being secure within that.''
