Charlize Theron 'Shocked' By Controversy Over 'Pretty People' Comment

Charlize Theron (photosCharlize Theron photos) is backtracking from her comments that Hollywood is hard for "gorgeous, pretty actresses like me."

Theron says that she was misquoted by British GQ when she said: "Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that's the end of the story."

"How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, f--king, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I've been in the room, and pretty people get turned away first."

Theron was mocked for complaining about her good looks but the actress insists that wasn't her point.

"It was such an incredible misquote. I'm somewhat shocked by how I got so misquoted," she said at the premiere of 'The Huntsman: Winter's War'.

"What I was really trying to say was people always ask me why I play so many characters that are so deconstructed, and my point with that was that how many characters really are there out there for a woman wearing a gown? You have to kind of play real people."

"Context is everything and if somebody doesn't really get that or it doesn't translate, people can really kind of read stuff so wrongly."

Theron, who won praise for her role as Imperator Furiosa in last year's 'Max Max: Fury Road', recently joined 'Fast 8' as the villain.
