Picking up some last-minute tickets, Charlize Theron was spotted at the Los Angeles Lakers basketball game last night (April 17).
The “Italian Job” actress rushed inside the Staples Center just before the Lakers tipped off with the San Antonio Spurs, though the home team ended up losing in the end.
Of her forthcoming film “Prometheus,” Charlize noted that there’s lots of mistrust and mystery among the characters.
“Yes, if we told you why, we’d have to kill you (laughs). There’s definitely a mystery, an uneasiness, we don’t really know each other. I play a character, Meredith Vickers, who works for the company that has sent out this spaceship into this mission. I think the environment and the circumstance lends itself to mystery. For myself, for my character, I felt like Ridley Scott really celebrated that. All of these little things started to happen where he’d bring me in on days that I wasn’t on the call sheet. I’d be like, ‘What am I doing here,’ he’d say, ‘I want you to stand in the corner and lurk.’ (Laughs) But I think for my character definitely, and all of the characters, towards the end of the film, there’s somewhat of a more personal connection to this journey that they’re taking, that you might not have seen in the first or the second act.”
As for her experience on the project, Theron gushed, “It was amazing, I’ve always felt….out of Ridley Scott’s generation of filmmakers, there’s really a handful that are iconic. I think that for every actor there’s one of those guys that you always dream to work with, and Ridley Scott was that for me, SIR Ridley was that for me.”
