‘The Old Guard’ Star Charlize Theron: “I’ll Keep Making Films If I Can Make Them With Women”

American actress and producer Charlize Theron spoke over Hollywood heroines and female-led action movies for Entertainment Weekly August issue.

During a video interview with EW, Theron firstly expressed that she had not witnessed the female-oriented shows while she had been growing up, and continued as follows:

“When I was in my early 20s and I saw Sigourney Weaver in Aliens. The Ripley character has always stayed with me in a way that has been incredibly profound (…) Once I saw her be Ripley, it was like the world opened up, and it just felt limitless.”

Then, the winner of numerous awards, including Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award, pointed out that there are not a sufficient number of female-led action movies:

“It’s embarrassing to me that, in almost 30 years, I really don’t have many movies with other women that I can go back and reference. For me, making a movie like Bombshell was a big deal because I don’t get to movies with a bunch of women, and that’s just so incredibly wrong.”

The actress, who took roles in well-known action movies such as ‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ ‘Atomic Blonde,’ and ‘The Old Guard’ added:

“A lot of our streamers — like Netflix, for instance — they make it a real priority. They want to create more opportunities for women. (…) I’ll keep making films if I can make them with women — with my walking stick, if that’s what I have to do.”

She concluded her speech as follows:

“Having complicated, diverse female heroes elevates the storytelling. It’s given us more places to go to and things to play with.”
