Is Charlize Theron one of the more underrated female actors right now?
Posted by Wooly on 5/9 at 5:25 am
i just watched North Country last night, and damn, she was amazing in it. she was also great in Young Adult and Monster. IMO she has some great range, she can pull off a lot of rolls, and she doesnt mind using make-up to make her look like complete dog shit, which is not something that most actresses would be willing to do. not to mention in her popcorn flicks she looks fine as hell.







and if you dont find her attractive... you have a case of the dumb dick

That's because she doesn't go around acting like a retard to get publicity.

Don't you actually have to be in good movies and do a good job in those movies to then be considered underrated.

She hasn't done anything good since Arrested Development.

I'm saving this for the next Kate Upton thread in the OT.

I think she's incredibly underrated as an actress. She rarely gets props in the goat discussions and she certainly doesn't get the props she deserves. If she was a male with the same range and resume she'd be like DDL or something

Although I don't whole heartedly agree with you, just for the sake of argument.... She should be getting way better offers and placement in these "good" movies. I mean her talent relative to the roles she gets offered is pretty disappointing. Hoes like Angelina getting all the good work

My love for Charlize is very well-documented on this site, but she's certainly not in any sort of GOAT discussion. Come on now..

I feel like she's pretty appropriately rated.

And one of the most gorgeous women to ever walk the planet.

An interesting tidbit about her is that she is from South Africa, and early in her career naturally spoke with a heavy Afrikaans accent.

If you hear her in interviews now she talks with a perfect American accent.

She was one sexy southern belle in The legend of Bagger Vance.

Well I personally believe anyone that can make you forget who they are in a movie is very special as far as acting goes. She's done this for me at least twice. Especially granted how gorgeous she is, it makes it that much harder to forget you are watching Charlize Theron in a movie. I firmly believe if she was up for more roles that showcases this kind of talent, perhaps she would be in the GOAT discussions.

The 2 most beautiful women in the world are Charlize Theron, and Meagan Good.

I feel like she just stays out of the spotlight and out of the tabloids (for the most part). So it seems like she's not talked about much. But she's been pretty steadily busy for over 15 years now. And her staying out of the tabloids is good news for me...means I won't have to deal with that bull shite once she comes to her senses and realizes that I'm her soulmate.

BTW I fell in love with her back in 1997 in Trial and Error. Decent little comedy movie, but I'm not sure she's looked better than she did in that one. Good God..

I feel ya.

I know this may sound retarded, but my first memory of her was in Devils Advocate in 1997. The thing is though, I thought for a few minutes while watching it for the first time, that she was Tiffani Amber Thiessen. I hadn't seen "Kelly Kapowski" on anything since the College Years, and I didn't watch 90210 at the time. I really arse thought she had dyed her hair blonde and adopted a southern accent for The Devils Advocate. And they both had this kind of mole or freckle at like the same exact spot on their throat (So removed 3-4 years from SBTB, I found this to be plausible.) I realized how incredibly wrong I was by the time they had moved to NYC in the movie, but I damn sure did think Charlize Theron was Kelly Kapowski for a few brief moments. Even to the point that I was trying to argue with my friend while watching it.

Personally for me her hotness was at it's peak in 2 Days in the Valley with her running around either half naked or in skin tight clothing the entire flick.
