When she is her true self...

SheΓÇÖs awesome.

IΓÇÖll come back to this in a minute.

Oh look, another year went by and Victoria Beckham did not make the cover of US Vogue. Instead, the final issue belongs to Charlize Theron in service of her upcoming role in Jason ReitmanΓÇÖs Young Adult, due out in December, for which she has an outside shot at another Oscar nomination.

What a strong, strong year for lead actresses. There are 7 who could easily be considered without any objection:

Viola Davis
Glenn Close
Meryl Streep
Elizabeth Olsen
Michelle Williams
Charlize Theron
Tilda Swinton

And that doesnΓÇÖt even include Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst, Kristen Wiig, and Jodie Foster in the equation, and theyΓÇÖre on the outskirts too.

As for Charlize, well, if you believe all the people who are supposed to say good things about her, and theyΓÇÖre all quoted in the Vogue article, she gives an astonishing bitch of a performance in Young Adult that should rank as one of her career best. Seems like Charlize is going bitch rather often these days. As Sarah noted in her post about the Snow White and the Huntsman trailer the other day, itΓÇÖs CharlizeΓÇÖs deliciously Evil Queen that is the centrepiece of the film. SheΓÇÖs awesome. Because, frankly, thatΓÇÖs what she is. A mega, mega, mega bitch. Trust me, IΓÇÖve seen it. My colleagues have seen it. Like, itΓÇÖs breathtaking what a f-cking bitch she is, even in an industry full of crazy ass goddamn bitches. And then thereΓÇÖs Charlize. Few can step to Charlize. Except Julia Roberts. So itΓÇÖs brilliant casting then that both will play the Evil Queen next year just three months apart.

And this Vogue article?

DoesnΓÇÖt offer anything terribly insightful - she was sad about the end of her relationship and tried really hard to make it work, duh - mostly because you canΓÇÖt really get any insight when youΓÇÖre writing with a massive erection. So, you know, sheΓÇÖs super cool and makes an awesome mix tape, and is really beautiful, and isnΓÇÖt a Hollywood fraud.

Dude, she played Rita in Arrested Development. You couldnΓÇÖt at least go there?

OK! Night night!
