Here in the MTV Newsroom, we are lucky enough to have some of the biggest stars in the world swing through for a visit, but it’s not often that a star lights up the room by being as down-to-earth and approachable as Charlize Theron. To say that the Oscar-winning actress was a riot is an understatement. (But noting that I’m now blind because she was the most beautiful person I’ve ever actually seen in real life is not.)
Dealing with the famous and fabulous can definitively be a mixed bag. For every pro who rolls in on time and ready to go, there’s a star who arrives late with a list of things you’re not allowed to ask them (and they’re almost always the things people most care about). We’re pleased to report that Theron, who is getting awards buzz for “Up in the Air” director Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult,” falls squarely in the earlier category. In fact, Theron got here early … so early that we didn’t quite have the interview space and cameras ready to go for her “After Hours” sitdown with our very own Josh Horowitz.
So what’s a major movie star to do when she has 10 or so minutes to kill? Well, she hangs out in the newsroom amongst the worker bees, of course. Theron and her team joked around, laughed and carried on in a way that made us think she’d be a blast to have a drink with. Be jealous!
Check out the trailers for Theron’s next two films, “Young Adult” and “Snow White and the Huntsman,” after the jump.
