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, for 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.

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.
