Charlize Theron is one of the most beautiful women on the planet, which is why it's so jarring to see her uglified to play real-life Florida prostitute turned serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster. Her makeup and performance are so good, so startling different from who she is, that there's an Oscar lying around somewhere in her mansion. Not to mention a Golden Globe and a glowing Roger Ebert endorsement.
The unfortunate downside of Charlize Theron gaining 30 pounds and wearing prosthetic teeth to go with bad skin and bags under her eyes is that it makes her lesbian scene with Christina Ricci extremely unappealing. There's nothing hot about a weathered hooker with an expression that says, "Been there and done that one time too many." And let's not forget the matching mullets, the cherry atop a barf sundae.
