Charlize Theron isn't into the whole Hello Kitty thing for women over the age of 16. While on a New York Times panel last week, she said: "I'm pretty amazed by Hello Kitty. I see so many women in their 30s walking around in Hello Kitty shit and nobody is concerned for them. It's the one iconic teenage symbol that seems okay for women in their 30s? The world seems to not have an issue with it." So, she definitely wouldn't like this. [US Weekly]
