Charlize Theron in ‘Dark Places’: Another Oscar on the Way?

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?

Dark Places also stars Chloe Moretz, Christina Hendricks and Nicholas Hoult. Have any of you read the book?

Did Charlize Theron Get Spinal Surgery?

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.

Are Charlize Theron and Seth MacFarlane Doing It?

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.
