Charlize Theron isn't afraid of growing older in Hollywood.
In fact, the Oscar-winning actress has embraced the over 40 crowd, recently sitting down with Vanity Fair Italy for their November 2016 issue in which she dismissed fellow female stars' claims that ageism is alive and well in the entertainment industry.
"I don't agree with that [notion,] and I'm not happy to hear people talking like that about Hollywood," Theron said, per the Daily Mail.
She continued, "Now that I'm 41, I work much more than 20 years ago, and I enjoy it even more. And all the women I know say the same thing, so it's time to stop this cliché."
