Next to join the Nobody Denim Club is Charlize Theron. She wore a pair of their Empire Tube jeans in Reno after a work out. It seems like we only spot Charlize after her workouts or at basketball games. She looks amazing though each time we spot her. But we are surprised she is able to put some of these amazing outfits on after working out. We would be too drained to put on jeans after. Would you be able to get dressed after a working out session?
We really like these jeans. The distressed detailing on them, we find to be really great and natural looking. These jeans have also been spotted on Avril Lavigne a couple times before. Are you also a fan of these jeans?
The two are in talks to star in a gritty thriller — their first project since “Mr and Mrs Smith.”
Brad Pitt is close to signing on to a Ridley Scott film in which Angelina Jolie is also circling, Deadline Hollywood reports. If all lights turn green, this would be the first time the couple has shared screen time since “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” — the 2005 film in which the celebrity pair are said to have first fallen in love (while Pitt was still married to actress Jennifer Aniston).
Pitt and actor Javier Bardem are said to be close to signing on, and Jolie is vying for the female lead, according to the Deadline report. The thriller, called “The Counselor,” stars Hollywood “it” man Michael Fassbender, while Oscar winner Natalie Portman and Jeremy Renner have also been rumored to be in the film. “The Counselor” is about a lawyer (Fassbender) who falls in too deep with drug trafficking.
It starts shooting in June in Europe—a convenient location to Scott’s and Jolie – Pitt’s respective homes in the south of France. Jolie has voiced the desire to work again with Pitt. In 2010 this is what she told Vanity Fair: I’d love to. We’ve talked about it. We’d have to figure out who’s going to watch the kids, but it’s really about finding the right thing, because we’ve looked. When you’re a couple, there are certain things people don’t want to see you do. It becomes too indulgent, too personal. I don’t think people want to see people who are really together intimate on-screen. Maybe we have to play bad guys that try to kill each other, so it’s just fun and aggressive, not dealing with some man-woman deal.
“The Counselor” will be Scott’s next directorial effort after “Prometheus,” also starring Fassbender (alongside Charlize Theron), due out in theaters June 8.
Everyone gets old. Not evedlore grows up.
Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron) is a divorced, 37-year-old ghost writer of a series of young adult novels, who is on deadline with her editor to finish the last book of the soon-to-be-cancelled series. Mavis receives an e-mail with a picture of the newborn daughter of her high school boyfriend Buddy Slade (Patrick Wilson) and his wife Beth (Elizabeth Reaser). Believing this to be a sign she and Buddy are meant to be together, Mavis leaves Minneapolis and returns to her hometown of Mercury, Minnesota, to reclaim her life with Buddy, under the pretext of overseeing a real estate deal.
Upon arriving after listening to “The Concept” by Teenage Fanclub on repeat from an old mixtape Buddy gave her in high school, Mavis arranges to meet him the next day at a local sports bar, for old times’ sake. In the interim, she goes alone to a different bar, Woody’s. There she reconnects with a former classmate she barely remembers, Matt Freehauf (Patton Oswalt), who became disabled after being beaten by jocks who erroneously assumed he was gay. Matt tells Mavis that her plan to destroy Buddy’s marriage is irrational and selfish, but she ignores him.
The following day, Mavis meets Buddy at the sports bar, where they run into Matt, the bar’s bookkeeper. On their way out, Buddy invites Mavis to a performance of Beth’s “mom rock band”. In the interim, Mavis spends another night getting drunk with Matt, who distills homemade bourbon in the garage of the house he shares with his sister Sandra. When Mavis attends the concert of Beth’s band, the other moms are resentful of Mavis, whom they remember as the “psychotic prom queen bitch”. When Beth’s band performs, the lead singer dedicates their opening song to Buddy from Beth; much to Mavis’s dismay, it is “The Concept”.
Beth wants to stay out longer, so Mavis offers to drive the drunk Buddy home. On the lawn they share a kiss that is quickly broken up when the babysitter opens the front door to greet them. The next day, after an awkward encounter with her parents, Mavis is invited to Buddy’s daughter’s naming ceremony. She later goes out drinking with Matt again, during which Matt tells Mavis to grow up.
The following day, Mavis attends the party, where she declares her love for Buddy, but he rebuffs her. Everyone at the party is called out to the lawn to await a surprise Buddy has prepared for Beth. Mavis, who has been drinking at the party, collides with Beth, who accidentally spills punch on Mavis’s dress. Mavis insults her, and in a profanity-laced tirade tearfully reveals she became pregnant with Buddy’s baby years ago, but had a miscarriage after three months.
Buddy, who has been preparing a drum-set gift for Beth in the garage, opens the garage door and belatedly learns what has transpired. Mavis asks him why he invited her. He reveals it was Beth’s idea, as she feels sorry for Mavis. Humiliated, Mavis leaves the party and visits Matt, where she breaks down in tears and, later, initiates sex.
The following morning, while Matt sleeps, Mavis has coffee in the kitchen with Sandra, who still idolizes her. Mavis talks about needing to change herself, but Sandra says Mavis is better than the rest of Mercury and should not change. Mavis says she agrees, and prepares to return to Minneapolis. Sandra asks to go with her but Mavis declines and leaves alone.

Birth Name: Charlize Theron
Birth Date: August 7, 1975
Birth Place: Benoni, Gauteng, South Africa
Charlize Theron has treated audiences to an incredibly wide spectrum of performances, ranging from emotional drama to action-adventure to quirky comedy. In 2004, she won an Oscar for Best Actress for her emotionally devastating turn as female serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the independent film, Monster, co-starring Christina Ricci.
She also won the Independent Spirit Award, the National Broadcast Film Critics Association Award, a Golden Globe and several other awards for her performance in the film, which she also produced. In 2006, Theron was nominated again for an Academy Award for Best Actress, as well as for a Golden Globe, SAG and Critics Choice awards for her performance as Josey Aimes in the drama North Country opposite Frances McDormand, Sissy Spacek and Woody Harrelson.
Theron began her career as a model in her native South Africa before coming to the United States to dance with the Joffrey Ballet. Moviegoers were first introduced to her in 1996 in 2 Days in the Valley, with James Spader, Eric Stoltz, and Jeff Daniels. The following year she co-starred with Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves in the Warner Brothers thriller The Devil’s Advocate. Later that year, Tom Hanks cast Theron in his directorial debut, That Thing You Do! That film was followed by Woody Allen’s Celebrity, Disney’s Mighty Joe Young, and the Oscar-nominated John Irving adaptation The Cider House Rules.
In 2000, Theron tackled back-to-back roles in Robert Redford’s The Legend of Bagger Vance with Will Smith and Matt Damon, Fox 2000’s Men of Honor with Robert DeNiro and Cuba Gooding, Jr., John Frankenheimer’s Reindeer Games with Ben Affleck, and Miramax’s The Yards co-starring Mark Wahlberg, Joaquin Phoenix, James Caan and Faye Dunaway. In 2001, Theron shared the screen again with Keanu Reeves in the Warner Brothers romance Sweet November, and reunited with director Woody Allen in The Curse of the Jade Scorpion. In 2003, Theron illuminated screens in the Paramount’s hit caper movie The Italian Job, co-starring Mark Wahlberg, before taking on the role of both star and producer in Monster.
Following Monster, she portrayed actress Britt Ekland in HBO’s The Life and Death of Peter Sellars opposite Geoffrey Rush, for which she received Best Supporting Actress nominations from the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Emmys. She then starred in the Paramount action adventure Aeon Flux, based on the hugely popular MTV animated series; showed her lighter side with a guest-starring role in the acclaimed comedy series “Arrested Development”; and played a detective in Paul Haggis’ critically acclaimed follow-up to Crash, In the Valley of Elah.
Her appetite for producing increased rapidly over these years and she, along with her film company, Denver and Delilah Films, produced the documentary entitled East of Havana,an unflinching look at Cuba through the eyes of three hip hop artists. She then went on to produce and act in Sleepwalking, starring Nick Stahl and Dennis Hopper. Theron also made an appearance in Stuart Townsend’s forthcoming directorial debut, Battle in Seattle.
The Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron tells the December issue of Vogue magazine this is the “first time” she’s been unattached since she was nineteen. She used to go from one relationship to another — some within a month — saying she found a “comfort zone” being monogamous.
The 36-year-old Theron dated actor Stuart Townsend for nearly 10 years before their breakup in 2010. She says she pulled back on her career as an effort to save the union when the relationship began to go downhill, calling that “the priority” and that she “wouldn’t do it any different way.”
Theron is now ready to work with the romantic comedy “Young Adult” written by Diablo Cody and directed by Jason Reitman. It opens Dec. 16.
The fairytale is over.
Snow White is the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen. Unable to tolerate the insult to her vanity, the evil queen decides that Snow White must die. The queen sends a huntsman to kill Snow White. However the huntsman finds himself unable to murder the innocent you woman, and instead ends up training her to become a warrior capable of threatening the queen’s reign. The Huntsman is not a love interest (fear not, the prince is still in the story) but acts more as a mentor, teaching the teen girl to fight and survive.
Snow White and the Huntsman is an American dark fantasy action film based on the German fairy tale “Snow White” compiled by the Brothers Grimm. The film is directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Evan Daugherty, Martin Solibakke, John Lee Hancock, and Hossein Amini. The cast includes Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, and Bob Hoskins.
The film received two Academy Award nominations for Best Visual Effects and Best Costume Design at the 85th Academy Awards. It was a success at the box office. Although critics praised the production design and the performances of Theron, Hemsworth and Claflin, Stewart’s performance received mixed reviews, and Daugherty, Hancock and Amini’s screenplay was criticized.
Joe Roth, former chairman of 20th Century Fox and Walt Disney Studios and producer of Tim Burton’s fantastical global hit Alice in Wonderland, knew that his team had found something incredible when Evan Daugherty’s script for what would become Snow White and the Huntsman arrived at his Los Angeles-based production house, Roth Films. At the time, Roth’s head of development (and executive producer of this film), Palak Patel, saw the potential in Daugherty’s story, which was an innovative take on the age-old Brothers Grimm tale, originally published in 1812 in the text “Kinderund Hausmärchen” (“Children’s and Household Tales”).
Roth and Patel were also responsible for finding the man who would helm the company’s next epic action-adventure. Rupert Sanders, a highly decorated commercial director, had made his way to the top of his game with a unique visual style that distinctly branded ad campaigns such as those for the juggernaut video game Halo 3. Roth, Patel and fellow executive producer Gloria Borders grew fascinated by the uncompromising tone and impressive variety in Sanders’ work, as well as the depth of soul to his commercials.
When Roth’s team had a draft of the script with which all were comfortable, Sanders was the first and the only filmmaker to whom they sent the idea. A veteran of imaginative gaming spots, Sanders believed it was as important to reimagine the story as it was to open up a filmic Snow White to both genders. Everyone felt that Sanders’ vision and skill set offered a deft balance that would guarantee the production its green light.

The actress is icy as ever as she terrorizes Kristen Stewart in the upcoming “Snow White” movie.
Everybody knows that actors have a lot more fun playing the bad guy. No need to remind Charlize Theron of that. The Oscar-winning actress is starring as the evil queen (emphasis on “evil”) in the upcoming “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
Theron, who has played scary before in “Monster”, remarked to E! Online that she’s been having “a lot of fun” playing the evil queen. Theron laughed and said her character is a “total bitch.” We’ll find out if audiences agree when the movie, which co-stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White, hits theaters next summer.
If you find yourself saying, “Wait, I thought Julia Roberts was playing the evil queen,” well, you’re right. But that’s a different movie called “Mirror Mirror.” That version stars Lily Collins as Snow White and is set to hit theaters March 16, 2012. Roberts says that her character lives up to her name. She’s “pretty evil,” Roberts remarked.
