Charlize Theron baffled by the success of The Hills
Charlize Theron has said she’s baffled by the success of reality show The Hills.
The series, which started its fourth season in the US last month, is a spin-off of similar MTV show Laguna Beach, following aspiring fashion designer Lauren Conrad and her friends in Los Angeles. The show has received criticism for being semi-scripted, with even Lauren admitting it’s edited and engineered to create storylines.
Charlize told MTV News this week: “I realized that this f***ing show is huge. Now I’m going to ask you a question: Why? Why is it so big? It’s about nothing!
“This is a free country. Freedom of speech! You can tell me right now to my face that [her 2000 film] Reindeer Games was a piece of sh**. That’s totally fine.
“But The Hills is about nothing. I think the girls are beautiful and when they cry their mascara runs and that’s real, but I don’t get it!
“Maybe I need to watch the shows some more.”
