BIG DAY FOR THERON: 'YOUNG ADULT' PREMIERE ALONG WITH A NOM BY THE GOLDEN GLOBES
USA Today spoke with Charlize Theron regarding her big day Thursday with the premiere of her new film 'Young Adult' and receiving a Golden Globe nomination as Best Actress for the film earlier that day.
A Golden Globe nomination and her film's premiere, all in the same day?
"Yeah, these are the moments where you go, what did I do in a past life to deserve all of this?" said a glam Theron on the red carpet. "It's all too much."
But screenwriter Cody wasn't surprised by the accolades Theron's racked up playing Mavis Gary, a shallow former prom queen who, at 37, returns to her hometown to callously snare her (married) high school boyfriend.
"I knew she was going to do an amazing job - she's Charlize Theron - but when I started watching dailies and seeing what she was doing out there, I was like, 'Oh my god,"' said Cody. "Because suddenly the movie was to me, even riskier than it had been on the page. She played it in such a committed and intense way."
The premiere took place in Los Angeles held at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
