“Yeah, it’s a little hearty, for sure,” Theron said. “I love that character very much and I’m so grateful I had a small role in creating her. She will forever be someone I think about and think about with love.”
“Obviously I’d like to see that story go on, and if he feels like he has to keep it that way, then I believe him in it,” she added. “We’re so hooked on minor details that forgetting the thing we’re emotionally touching has nothing to do with that minute of the thing we’re focused on.”
She is currently promoting “The Old Guard,” an action drama she co-wrote with film producer Gina Prince-Bythewood.
Theron explained that many women were not offered the opportunity to find success in the action film, especially after the failure of her first 2005 film “F Flux”.
“A lot of women don’t offer a second chance, but when men make these films and guess the failure, they get a chance after a chance to re-explore them,” she said. “It doesn’t necessarily happen for women.”
Once again a decade later she didn’t venture into the genre, and Theron said, “I’m still influenced by it, and one thing drives me.”
“Unfortunately, we feel like the opportunity will be taken from our hearts if we fail, but that’s true,” she said. “It’s not exactly a farewell genre when it comes to women.”
“Old Guard” debuts on Netflix on Friday.
