Washington, Mar 24 : Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron offered some stern advice to the paparazzi to do their homework before interviewing her at press junkets.
The 32-year-old actress revealed that she's often left offended by comments reporters make when they chat to her about films in interviews.
"It bothers me that if you're gonna come in, especially to these junkets... and you're gonna be covering this industry, you should go and do your homework a little bit," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"I understand that there's a sense of entertainment and everybody wants the quick soundbite, but, at the same time, especially when you're dealing with material that's serious... Don't come to me and tell me that North Country was a transformation; it's dirt on my face.
"I got to a point... where somebody (said)... 'You love playing ugly people...' and I take such offence to that.
"Part of me almost wants to go, 'Y'know what, that's actually me... with no make-up, and I'm somewhat offended right now because you're basically saying I'm ugly,'" she added.
