Charlize Theron Thinks 20-Year-Olds Are Stupid, Because 20-Year-Olds Really Are Pretty Stupid

by 6 years ago


Being 20 years old is pretty stupid; You’re sidelined from waltzing into any bar or liquor store you want yet you have all the responsibilities of a fully-grown, fully-functional adult. If you’re 20, I feel bad for you because you’re stuck in the weirdest year of your entire 20s. I promise you it gets better.

Speaking in Women’s Wear Daily, Charlize Theron dished her opinions about 20-year-olds and their stupid entitled, know-it-all ways. In fact, it’s some pretty harsh real talk: “they have no fuckin’ concept” of “what life is about.”

Via Women’s Wear Daily:

“It’s ironic that we’ve built the beauty world around 20-year-olds, when they have no fuckin’ concept about wisdom, what life is about, having a few relationships below [their] belt and feeling hardships, to grow into [their] skin and feel confident within [themselves] and to feel the value of who [they] are, not because of a man or because of something like that,” she tells the publication. “And I think that’s such a beautiful thing.”

“And that’s why I think people say women come into their prime in their 40s,” she continues “And men are like fine wines — the older they get, the better they get. It’s such a misconception, and it’s such a lost opportunity because that’s when I think women are really in the true moment of their sensuality.”

She is not wrong. At 20, even though you think you know everything, you’re still just a guppy in a sea hungry to eat you. You know absolutely nothing, which is why this entire quote reminded me of one of my absolute favorite Louis C.K. bits about worthless 20-somethings who have no idea how the world works.

Wisdom, motherfuckers. You’ll learn.
