Charlize Theron Is a Terrifying Mean Girl in Young Adult


This red-band scene from Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman’s Young Adult is short, but it’s so densely packed with middle school-type trauma that it should be viewed with caution by anyone who has ever chosen to color-coordinate the little rubber bands on their braces in honor of every month’s holidays, or had a terrible short haircut and slicked the top back with gel but let the bottom poof out like a panoramic mullet. Oh, god. I’ve entered a cave of unhappy memories triggered only by Charlize Theron’s line at the end of this tiny clip. I’m probably gonna pee my pants when the whole movie comes out on Dec. 16. Just like that time in Hebrew school. Ughhhh.
