Charlize Theron was at Pinkberry this week (chocolate hazelnut with chocolate shavings, if you’re curious) when she realized she didn’t have any cash on her. She took her dessert and promised she’d be back with the money. Over an hour later, she returned to the store with with her wallet, and instead of just paying the $3.75 she owed the store, she handed the Pinkberry employee a $100 bill! Even though this TMZ video tries really hard to make Charlize look like a brat, I think this move was really sweet of her. I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume it would’ve happened even if TMZ cameras weren’t around. Besides, $100 is like play money to people as rich as her, it’s not as if she lost out on all that much by giving it up. The only loss of this situation is that she only bought a “mini” sized fro-yo instead of a more respectable small or medium — come on Charlize, live a little! [TMZ via Celebuzz]
With all due respect to those who genuinely suffer from Celiac disease or significant, doctor-diagnosed gluten intolerance, it needs to be said: this gluten-free movement is getting out of control. Bless Charlize Theron for having the courage to speak out against gluten-free cupcakes as the “bullshit” that they are.
