To the awkward, dorky girls daydreaming of getting payback on the popular, mean girl from school: Charlize Theron is your new hero. The blond beauty wasn't always such a knockout, and now the actress is happy to rub her success in the face of one former classmate.
Theron is busy promoting her latest flick "Young Adult," in which she plays Mavis Gray, a writer who is nostalgic for her high school days as a mean Queen Bee. But it seems the stunning Oscar winner isn't nostalgic for her school days, when she wore big, round glasses and didn't get any attention from boys.
"I was pretty much a mess after primary school," Theron told the Mirror. "There was a really popular girl in my school, and I was obsessed with her. You'd go to jail for that stuff today! I was actually in tears one day because I couldn't sit next to her."
So whatever happened to the girl Theron thought was so wonderful? Not much, apparently. In an interview quoted by the Daily Mail, the actress said, "I've just recently rediscovered the popular girl in my school. She is living in some little dopey city now. I don't know exactly all the details, but I was thinking to myself, 'I bet she has moments like Mavis where she has a pang of nostalgia for her shiny days in school.'"
So does the knockout actress pity the former popular girl? Not at all! Living the dream of nerdy girls everywhere, Theron gave a shout-out to former Miss Popularity.
"Suck it, popular girl who did not want me to sit next to you at your school bench and made me cry," Theron declared. "Suck it!"
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
