LOS ANGELES: Actress Charlize Theron says she cannot do theatre as she is unable to handle live audience.
“I’m just not made for that kind of live audience where you don’t create a fourth wall. I take my hat off to those guys. It’s not disconnected enough for me... Some people are good at performing in front of people like that, but I’m uncomfortable at it,” the 36-year-old told Interview magazine.
“I think maybe that’s the difference between acting and being a performer... As soon as there are 200 people in a theatre watching me, I get really scared,” she added.
Theron also revealed that she had turned down offers from director Jason Reuitman to be part of his famous theatrical reading at Los Angeles’ County Museum of Arts because she could not handle the stress.
“I’ve even said to Jason, ‘I will jump off a building for you, but I will not do that,” she said.
