In recent interviews, Charlize Theron has been having to explain why it’s not important to her if you like her characters, as long as you understand and perhaps empathise with them. The reason she’s been talking about this is because she plays a bit of a bitch in Jason Reitman’s Young Adult (which also reunites him with Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody). Three new clips from the movie have now appeared online, so click above and below to take a look.
Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either. The UK release is due February 12th.
