Charlize Theron had to empathise with her looks-obsessed film character, even though she isn't like that.
The stunning actress stars as evil Queen Ravenna in upcoming fantasy film Snow White and the Huntsman. Ravenna is fanatical about her looks and being the "fairest of them all". Charlize doesn't see any part of her personality in the character, but identifies with her plight to stay forever young.
"In acting there is no room for my ego. If I play a role it has nothing to do with me, neither emotional nor physical," she said in an interview with German TV station Tele 5.
"I could never be Ravenna, but I had to accept what a big part of her character is getting older and rejuvenation."
Charlize is famed for her natural beauty. The 36-year-old star prefers to avoid invasive procedures and instead indulges in luxury skin treatments.
"I have never done anything extreme for beauty. Not yet," she insisted. "But I do like facials."
