Charlize Theron - Charlize Theron: Red carpet events are weird
Charlize Theron doesn't think she'll ever feel comfortable on the red carpet, or take such events for granted.
Charlize Theron insists it isn't normal to feel comfortable on the red carpet.
The 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' actress doesn't understand how anyone can feel at ease dressed up for high-profile events because they are always such ''surreal'' occasions and says she will never take them for granted.
She said: ''I always say if you get comfortable with that stuff you should probably check yourself because there's nothing natural or normal in that environment at all, and there's never been a moment for me where I've gone 'Oh, it's just that again'. It's definitely always a very surreal reality of my life.''
The 38-year-old beauty - who has a two-year-old son, Jackson - began her career as a model and viewed her first job as being a ''luxurious waitress'' and though she didn't enjoy it, she appreciates the freedom it gave her.
Speaking to the Telegraph website, she said: ''I always refer to it as I really luxurious waitressing job. I can't say that it was a dream or passion of mine but I'm so eternally grateful for it because it made me independent. Where I couldn't work as a waiter in a lot of places because I had a South African passport, I had this job where I could do one or two jobs a month and not have to work again and that was enough to pay my rent. To have that financial independence was just so fantastic.''
