South African actress and model Charlize Theron covers the December 2011 issue of Vogue US Magazine. Miss Theron shares her thoughts on being single for the first time since she the age of 19 after her break-up with long time boyfriend Stuart Townsend, as well as her observations on her co-star in Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart.
Here’s what the Young Adult star had to share:
On winning an Oscar: “It was life-changing – it opened a lot of doors. But it made people have a lot of opinions about what should happen next. You realize quickly that you can never please everybody.”
On having a revelation in the middle of filming Young Adult: “I realized how much I love what I do. I really, really missed it. Like around week three, I had this horrible, sappy moment where I got a little overwhelmed. It was just a really great f—ing experience.”
On her breakup with longtime love Stuart Townsend: “It was sinking, and I had to give it a fight. I really wanted to try and make it work. That was the priority. I wouldn’t do it any different way.”
