“This is a great example of how Hollywood like slaps you in the face when you start aging.”

Theron asked that she is very unfamiliar with Wonder Woman’s character so there is a lot she would need to be filled in about. However, she was corrected very quickly.

The role of Hippolyta was initially offered to the actress, who is only nine years older than Gadot. The shock that Theron experienced was truly an eye-opener for her. That was the moment she realized that Hollywood saw her as an older actress now.
