is sick of rude reporters calling her "ugly." The actress accepts she went out of her way to look unattractive to play lesbian killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster
, but she was simply make-up free for other roles for which she was dubbed ugly.
And now she's letting the media know that she'll no longer stand for rude questions about her looks.
She tells the new issue of W
magazine, "You better not be bringing up ugly."
Theron insists she did nothing to play down her stunning looks in North Country
or In The Valley Of Elah
- two films, for which her characters were called less than attractive.
She fumes, "North Country
was dirt. That's what happens when you go into a mine. In The Valley Of Elah
- that's when I took real offense, because that was just my real hair color and me with no makeup."
And the Oscar-winner is also annoyed by people who think she chooses 'ugly' roles to win awards and favor as a serious actress.
She adds, "It really irks me that people think I choose these roles because, if I'm not looking attractive, they will take me seriously. I'm sorry, but if I'm going to play a cop, I'm not going to be wearing eyeliner. I'm not going to wake up in a scene with lip gloss on, because that's not how women wake up, not even the most beautiful women."
