Red carpets make Charlize nervous

Los Angeles - Charlize Theron still gets nervous on the red carpet.

The 36-year-old screen beauty - who adopted a son, Jackson, in March - admits she is moved when fans come out to greet her at premieres but still gets anxious at the glitzy events, despite her lengthy career as a Hollywood star.

Speaking on a special green carpet at the UK premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman in Leicester Square, London on Monday, she told BANG Showbiz: "Red carpets are still the same so far as anxiety and nerves.

"I don't think that ever goes away because it's a lot of attention! But it's so moving that everyone comes out to support us. That always, always amazes me. It's flattering. It's sweet and I try not to think about it. Of course it's intimidating!"

Discussing her role as the evil Queen Ravenna in the Rupert Sanders-adaptation of the classic fairytale, Charlize reveals she did not want the character to be entirely two-dimensional as no person is ever defined by just one trait.

She added: "We wanted her to be a human being. She had to be someone who was really struggling with her conflict. I think of them as just evil and struggling. I don't think any of us are just one thing."

Charlize was joined on the green carpet by stars of the film including Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Ray Winstone.

    Charlize Theron, nervous or not she has done us South Africans proud by becoming a Hollywood star. Most people are nervous any way in large crowds. Great difference in acting in front of a camera and standing in front of a huge crowd and saying something.
