Charlize Theron: 'Dark Places' Filming Got 'Down and Dirty'

Hollywood’s glitz and glamour went out the door during the Kansas filming of “Dark Places.”

“On the financial side, this was a bit of a harder film to finance, but we ended up getting the exact financing that we needed,” the film’s star Charlize Theron tells Made in Hollywood. “And we made this movie, I think, in the exact manner that it should have been made – which was down and dirty.”

Theron adds that she’s a “huge fan of that kind of filmmaking because I feel like everybody, you know, is there for the right reasons, ’cause they’re not getting a paycheck. They’re there because they really love it, and it’s just a different environment. It’s my favorite environment to be in.”

Nicholas Hoult and Chloe Grace Mortez are also part of the film, centered on the brutal murder of the family of Libby Day (Theron), and the secrets Libby uncovers about it 25 years later. The movie – based on the bestselling snovel by “Gone Girl” author Gillian Flynn – hits theaters on Friday. — Written by Dahvi Shira
