The Time Charlize Theron Called Me a B****

I usually save these little behind-the-scenes anecdotes from interviews for when the film releases, but this one is too good to hold back on. I can title this in my memoirs to come, as “The Time Charlize Theron Called Me A Bitch.” Of course, if you listen to the audio below, you’ll get the full story.

Just a little scene-setter for you. This is after our TV interview, at the press conference, forĀ Young Adult, where Charlize and her co-star Patton Oswalt are taking questions about the soon-to-be-released movie in which her character goes back to her home-town. Now you know I’m a proud Benoni gal, so naturally we bonded over that in the first encounter of the day. Or so I thought…(insert wink-eyed emoticon here)

There’s more to come from this…but mark it down now, Young Adult releases in South Africa on the 23 March 2012, and, before that, in the US on 16 December 2011.

    Love it! I’ve been wondering though – how long has Charlize Theron been in the states? She doesn’t sound like she has much of an accent, but I can’t tell if that’s because the South African faded out or just her toning it down while in America. Jonathan doesn’t have much of a Zimbabwean accent when he’s in the U.S., but the second he gets a call from his family or returns home for a visit the Zimbo accent makes a welcome return.

    You’re right, Jessie, Charlize doesn’t have her South African accent anymore – except for when she speaks Afrikaans. She says she had to get rid of it in order to get roles in America. A colleague of mine says Australians would disown Nicole Kidman if she did the same thing!
