It's tough out there for the most beautiful women in Hollywood?

Actress Charlize Theron raised some eyebrows and drew some mocking responses on social media when she said that sometimes actresses can be too pretty to be given roles with "real gravitas."

"Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that's the end of the story," the South African beauty told British GQ magazine.

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

The 40-year-old Theron drastically altered her appearance more than a decade ago to play serial killer Aileen Wuornos in "Monster," winning the Best Actress Oscar for the memorable performance.

Theron also argued in the interview that men age like "fine wine" and lamented the expectations for what women should look like over 40.

"We live in a society where women wilt and men age like fine wine. And, for a long time, women accepted it," she explained.

"It feels there's this unrealistic standard of what a woman is supposed to look like when she's over 40."

Most of the reaction on Twitter was unsympathetic to the so-called plight of pretty actresses.
