Charlize Theron has joked that she has had a hard time finding acting jobs.
The Young Adult star explained her absence from the spotlight over the past few years in an interview with MTV News.
"[I was] unemployed, I just couldn't get a job," Theron joked.
"I cry and drink and shoot heroin. Is that not a typical Tuesday for you? Then I go to therapy and things turn out okay. No, I was getting ready to go and do a film in Australia and that just kept pushing and pushing."
Theron has several projects in the works, including Snow White and the Huntsman and Ridley Scott's forthcoming Alien prequel Prometheus.
The star recently revealed that she was bullied by school classmates as a kid and was not in the "popular crowd".
Theron has also said that she did not date in high school as boys never noticed her.
