Theron Hasn't Read a Script Since Oscar Win

24 October 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Charlize Theron is so concerned about overworking, she hasn't read one movie script since her Oscar win last year. The blonde beauty, who picked up the coveted trophy for her efforts in acclaimed movie Monster, admits that the only new work she's taken on since her victorious moment has been a guest-starring role on the hit TV series Arrested Development. She says, "I haven't read a script since right before the Oscars. I said yes to both (new films) Aeon Flux and North Country before the Oscars and I knew they'd keep me busy for the next two years. If you've just committed yourself to two projects, entertaining any other stuff is like dragging yourself over broken glass. It's my life. I'm not just a money-making machine. There have been some offers, but I just didn't feel ready to go (and) spend eight months on a film set. Not one day goes by where I go, 'Oh, f**k, what am I missing out on?' I love my life as much as my work. I don't want one to take over the other." »

Harassed Theron Gets Her Own Back

6 October 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Monster star Charlize Theron found the best way of coping with the stress of playing a sexually harassed character in her new film was to pester all the men on set. In her new movie North Country, the Oscar winner plays a struggling single mother who has to endure endless insults and assault from her male colleagues. Theron says, "On breaks between filming, I would get my own back by sexually harassing all the men on the set. It was quite a laugh and I think they quite enjoyed it. In fact my co-star Woody Harrelson came in one time on his day off and when I asked him why, he replied, 'I've come in for my sexual harassment!'" »

Spielberg, Theron & Jones Lead Latest Oscar Race

16 September 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Steven Spielberg's terrorist drama Munich and Ang Lee's controversial Brokeback Mountain have emerged as the front runners for Best Film at the 2006 Oscars, in the latest release from top movie industry odds site GoldDerby.com. Site editor Tom O'Neil, a top US critic and awards expert, suggests the two epics will compete with war film Jarhead, George Clooney's turn in Syriana and Memoirs Of A Geisha for the top Academy Award. But O'Neil is convinced it will be Spielberg's movie - about the hunt for the killers of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics - that will claim the big prize. He says, "It's the lead pony in this upcoming Oscar derby." Meanwhile, O'Neil and his online critics consortium, favor Tommy Lee Jones to beat Jake Gyllenhaal (Jarhead), Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain), Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) and Joaquin Phoenix's turn as Johnny Cash (Walk The Line) to the Best Actor prize for his role in Three Burials Of Melquiades Estrada. GoldDerby.com's experts also predict Charlize Theron will be up for her second Best Actress Academy Award for her role of a victimized miner in North Country. Theron will compete with Judi Dench (Mrs. Henderson Presents), Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman (Transamerica), Diane Keaton (The Family Stone) and Ziyi Zhang (Memoirs Of A Geisha) for the award. »
