Of course, she’s also a mom of two adopted children. But the role of Wonder Woman’s mom?
At 43, she’s nine years older than “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot, 34. Someone obviously got the math wrong when she revealed on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” this week that she was offered the role of Wonder Woman’s mother.
“This is a great example of how Hollywood like slaps you in the face when you start aging,” she said.
Theron laughed and said she thought she was talking with someone in Hollywood to play Wonder Woman in the DC film.
“And I was like, ‘I’m not familiar with it. What does Wonder Woman really do?’ And this person said, ‘No, it’s for Wonder Woman’s mom.’ ”
“It was the defining moment when I crossed over,” she said. “And I wasn’t fully aware of it.”
The role of Diana Prince’s mother, Hippolyta, would later go to Connie Nielsen. At 53, that makes more sense.
