Charlize Theron: Women are at their best in their 40s

What do you say about this, twentysomethings!?

Charlize Theron says our culture has it all wrong. Young adults "have no (effing) concept about wisdom…"!

In an interview with Women's Wear Daily, the actress says:

"It's ironic that we've built the beauty world around 20-year-olds, when they have no (effing) concept about wisdom, what life is about …"


"…that's why I think people say women come into their prime in their 40s. And then for some reason our society just wants to go…it's like a dead flower."

She pulls a flower from a vase.

"It's like we wilt for some reason. And men are like fine wines — the older they get, the better they get.

It's not right, she says.

"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. I can't believe I almost killed that flower to make a point."

Oh, and, by the way, Charlize is 39.
