Say what you will about the choices Diablo Cody has made as a result of her fame from “Juno,” but the woman takes risks — huge risks — with what she puts out there. (That campy Megan Fox/Amanda Seyfried horror movie that flopped? Exactly.) Her newest movie coming out this holiday season is called “Young Adult” and stars Charlize Theron as a 30-something woman who heads back to her hometown looking for her ex, who is married with a new baby. I think you’ll agree with me after watching this trailer that this film is going to be risky. Keep reading »

Why We Can’t Wait For Charlize Theron In “Young Adult”

As a devout fan of Judy Blume, The Babysitter’s Club, and Sweet Valley High books, the entire Frisky staff’s interest has been piqued by this just-released poster for “Young Adult,” screenwriter Diablo Cody‘s third flick. It’s an awesome send-up of the traditional young adult book cover and, all of a sudden, we can’t wait for this movie which sadly doesn’t come out until early December. The flick tells the tale of a 30-something young adult fiction writer, played by Charlize Theron. She’s an alcoholic divorcee who is not in a great place when she gets a birth announcement from an ex-boyfriend. She decides to go back to her hometown and see how he’s doing. Which leads down a slippery slope toward stalking. Keep reading »

Charlize Theron Isn’t Interested In Marriage, Is In Favor Of Marriage Equality

“I don’t … I treat my relationships like marriages, I really do … I really want for myself a long-term relationship, and I have been in long-term relationships. That’s the kind of union that I want. The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me, but I see the importance for other people.”

Find out what she has to say about that, after the jump! Keep reading »

Diablo Cody Teams Up With Charlize Theron For Her Next Flick, “Young Adult”

OK, OK, so “Jennifer’s Body” bombed. But Diablo Cody, the Oscar-winning screenwriter behind “Juno,” is the kind of lady who dusts herself off to try again. Our girl Diablo is teaming up with “Juno” director Jason Reitman again for “Young Adult,” a screenplay she has written about a woman who returns to her hometown and tries to reconnect with the guy she once dated. He’s married with a kid, however, and could care less about her popping up in his life again. Scrumptious Patrick Wilson will allegedly play the male lead, with comedian Patton Oswalt as his schlumpy best friend; Charlize Theron is confirmed to play the female lead who is chasing after her old guy. Damn, the makeup department’s really gonna have to uggify Charlize to make that plot believable. I don’t know a single surburban dad would who wouldn’t drop everything to worship at her feet if she sashayed back in town. Anyway, go, go, go, Diablo! [SlashFilm] Keep reading »

Charlize Theron Will Kick Your Butt To Protect Brandon Flowers

Since going solo from The Killers, easy-on-the-eyes lead singer Brandon Flowers has released the first single, “Crossfire,” off his forthcoming album, Flamingo, due out Sept. 14, and his costar in the video is the superhuman hottie Charlize Theron. While pretty Flowers sits around looking mopey and feeling kidnapped, Theron the Amazon slays attacking ninjas without even looking at them, tosses about some deadly throwing stars, and steals away with her man-booty. At one point, you expect a Spider-Man kiss between the two, but, sadly, it doesn’t happen. Maybe they couldn’t afford Charlize’s kissing-on-film rate? Tragically, we may never know how this love affair turns out if they don’t make a sequel. [Just Jared] Keep reading »

Charlize Theron Is Actually Kind Of A Good Shoe Designer

We’re just going to call it now. 2009 is officially the year of celebrity fashion collaborations.
