Charlize Theron ‘Loved’ Her Lesbian Sex Scene in Atomic Blonde


Charlize Theron doesn’t play your typical “girl in a superhero movie” in the upcoming Atomic Blonde. For starters, she’s the hero, not the hot supporting character in need of rescuing. But what’s more, she’s playing more of a Deadpool than a Captain America—she swears a lot, gets bruised up pretty badly, and has sex whenever and with whomever she wants. In this case, that includes a hot French operative who happens to be another woman.


“I just loved it,” Theron told Variety of her lesbian sex scene. “For so many reasons: My frustration of how that community is represented in cinema, or lack thereof. And also, it made perfect sense. It just suited her. It just felt there was a way through that relationship and the fact that it was a same-sex relationship to show a woman not having to fall in love, which is one of those female tropes. ‘It’s a woman; she better fall in love—otherwise, she’s a whore!’”
