JustJared has posted some gorgeous photos and links to Charlize’s interview with David Letterman from yesterday. If you can’t see the videos below, click here for part 1 and here for part 2 of the interview. I’ll do my best to get some photos added to the gallery by the weekend. 🙂

Caring Charlize Theron fought back tears as she told how she is helping save lives in her native South Africa.
The Hollywood beauty is working with chatshow host Oprah Winfrey to provide a mobile health clinic and education centre to tackle the devastating threat of HIV and AIDS.
She struggled to contain her emotions when she appeared on Oprahâ€™s show to talk about the project and watch a video of her recent visit to Africa.
The clinic travels to four schools in remote and impoverished areas of KwaZulu-Natal to give HIV tests and vital sex education to students.
It’s been a while since Charlize Theron has been seen at a premiere, but she was certainly on glowing form for the opening of her new flick on Thursday night. The beautiful South African stepped out in LA to a screening of her drama Sleepwalking.
And despite the title of the movie, the Oscar-winning actress was wide awake as she sent flashbulbs popping in a flapper-style black frock with on-trend platform sandals.
Talented Charlize, who stars as a troubled woman who abandons her 12-year-old daughter, was also on producing duty for the film. And it seems her work has a high-profile fan – in the form of veteran actor and co-star Dennis Hopper.
“It’s terrific and Charlize is terrific,” declared Dennis, who attended the screening with his wife Victoria Duffy. “I can hardly wait to see it!”
Charlize Theron was at the Smith Rafael Film Center on Sunday night to promote “Sleepwalking,” a low-budget independent movie she produced and in which stars.
“Sleepwalking” was shown for California Film Institute members, followed by a Q&A session with Theron and co-star Nick Stahl.
She made it clear that this is “a passion project” for her, so she has to be disappointed with the lousy reviews so far.
After its recent showing at Sundance, the MTV Movie Blog called it “the Super Bowl of good performance/bad movie movies.”
JustJared has posted some fantastic photos of Charlize receiving her Hasty Pudding award and at the parade. Click here to view them all now. I will have some HQs available in the gallery within the next couple of days. 🙂
The French poet and musician Serge Gainsbourg once said, â€œUgliness is in a way superior to beauty because it lasts.â€ You get a sense that Charlize Theron might agree-but you also get a sense that such concerns of ugliness vs. beauty just don’t matter to her.
See, Theron is a classic screen beauty. The South African-born actress started as a dancer, as did Audrey Hepburn. She has the physical virtues that make her a natural for such roles as the dark heroine in Aeon Flux, the model muse to Kenneth Branagh’s stand-in Woody Allen in Celebrity, or as Peter Sellers’ put-upon lover in The Life and Death of Peter Sellers. Beautiful actresses are a dime a dozen. But actresses who transcend mere beauty are a gift.
