This is Charlize Theron in the upcoming film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2009 novel, Dark Places. Charlize plays Libby Davis whose life is pretty much destroyed by the fact that her brother supposedly killed her entire family years before. It’s a bit weird, as is Flynn’s MO, but will probably be pretty good.
Here’s the thing: judging from this picture, they’ve got Charlize – who yes, is beautiful and glamorous and all those fancy things – look rather plain and homely. If you know the Academy, then you know this might just be the recipe for another Oscar! She got one for Monster. Can she do it again?

Apparently Charlize Theron fucked up her spine back in 2005 on the set of Aeon Flux, and she’s been suffering from it for the past 7 years. Word on the street is that it got pretty bad lately and she finally decided to undergo surgery to correct it.
From US Weekly:
“Charlize got injured on a set and broke a vertebrae years ago,” an insider tells Us. “It’s been bothering her a lot lately so she had surgery to correct it and they had to go through her neck.” The injury occurred when something hit her head, the source added.
The stunning blonde has kept mum about the ordeal so far, but recently made a calculated decision to keep it hidden. While attending Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event in Beverly Hills on Friday, Oct. 4, the Huntsman actress sported a white neck scarf to match her short Stella McCartney dress as to not draw any attention to her bandage.
“She’s got a small Band-Aid on her neck,” a second source added about her appearance. “She kept fussing with the white scarf. She [was] wearing to cover it, but it was poking out and visible.”
Well, I feel like we’re making some leaps here (and that the “source”, as per usual, is full of shit). I mean, what would be the point of trying to hide something like that? It’s not like she had vaginal rejuvination or something and didn’t want anyone to know (but hell, some stars would scream that from the rooftops, as well). There’s very little info to go on here, and the assumption that she made a “calculated decision” to keep her surgery hidden is kinda laughable. Who knows.
Either way, loving that haircut on her. Not many could pull it off, that’s for sure.

Charlize Theron, amazing person and total megababe, was spotted having dinner with dick joke empresario Seth MacFarlane at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills. They left together as well. He looks really psyched about this. She looks like she’s trying to hide. He looks like he’s about break out into song. She looks like she’s about to break out into a sweat. Hey, I kid. You take a hundred photos and you find a handful that tell a story, and you go with that story; you don’t know what really went down. But if I had to guess I would say that she’s thinking, “I need to make some serious life changes.”
You may not remember this — in fact, I was shocked I tell ya, shocked when I re-learned this bit of info — but Mr. MacFarlane and Amanda Bynes dated for a hot five minutes.
MacFarlane was recently linked to Game of Thrones star (and star of the much hated Breakfast at Tiffany’s Broadway show) Emilia Clarke. They broke up last month. According to The Huffington Post via E!:
“They are no longer dating,” a source told the website. “It was really a location challenge. She has been in Europe shooting Game of Thrones and he is based in California, so it was hard to make it work despite the distance. They have remained friends.”
Check out the rest of the photos from McTheron’s date and come up with your own story.
Thanks to Lainey Gossip for the photos.

From The Hollywood Reporter:
Everybody knows how well Charlize Theron wears clothes, but now the A-list clotheshorse wants to make them too.
THR has learned that she and stylist Leslie Fremar are shopping the idea for a Theron Jeans line with denim brands, which would be sold in mass-market stores. Now, with celebrity stylists making all kinds of clothing deals — Kate Young with Target, Jeanne Yang’s Holmes & Yang co-designed with Katie Holmes — it makes a lot of sense.
I’m not entirely opposed to this idea, especially if it makes my ass look like Charlize Theron‘s. That’s how these things work, right? You wear something that a celebrity put their name on and you suddenly become exactly like them, yeah?
There’s not much to say about this – Charlize Theron might put out some jeans. She dresses well and we know she’s a pretty cool lady, so it might actually be pretty good. Here’s a confession: when Sarah Jessica Parker put out that line of clothes with Steve and Barry’s a few years ago, I definitely grabbed about 10 pair of her $15 jeans and guess when I last wore them? Yesterday. I FEEL NO SHAME!
Here’s a gallery of Charlize Theron wearing jeans, just because, you know, why not?

All-around cool lady Charlize Theron adopted a baby boy named Jackson back in May 2012 and not only is he WAY TOO CUTE, he’s also apparently the best kid ever. The actress was asked if she wanted more kids (of course she was) and she revealed that she totally would, if Jackson was anything to go on.
From E! News:
And speaking of Jackson, Theron says she wants more kids…kinda.
“More?” she asked with a big smile. “I don’t know. I mean, if all my kids could be like Jackson, I’d have 10 more right now.”
Theron’s mom, Gerda, chimed in, “I’d love her to have more.”
Theron laughed, “She’s always asking me when.”
It’s so funny that moms always want grandkids. I suppose it’s because they have the luxury of spoiling them rotten and then being able to give them back to the parents when they get unruly. I’m sure Charlize is as great of a mom as she is everything else and I love picturing her with a small tribe of children. That’s all I really have to say about that one.

Charlize Theron is one of those actresses I don’t have much of an opinion on either way – she’s a pretty okay actress, she doesn’t seem overly vain and is probably generally pretty cool, so she’s okay in my book. That became even more true this morning since it was revealed that she helped a security guard who was having a seizure before the Oscars started last night.
From E News:
Not only is Charlize Theron beautiful, but she’s also a life saver.
The gorgeous Hollywood star rushed to help a security guard who was suffering from a seizure at the Dolby Theater tonight before the Oscars began, E! News confirms.
Yes, in a gown and all.
The actress was one of the few people around the man when he went down, and attempted to help him up, before someone else phoned a doctor.
Okay, I realise that trying to help the guy up is what any decent human being would do in the situation and isn’t exactly a heroic feat. Still, you know if it was like, Julia Roberts or some shit, she would pretend she didn’t see him or feign confusion or something. I don’t know why I’m picking on Julia Roberts, but let’s go with it.
Here’s hoping the security guard in question is okay.
