Los Angeles - Charlize Theron "dreamed" of working with Ridley Scott.
The Young Adult actress stars in Ridley's new movie Prometheus - a prequel to the Alien movie - alongside Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace, and she admits she had a great time on the set of the sci-fi movie.
Really lucky girl
She said: "Working with Ridley was amazing. Of Ridley's generation I think there are abut three that are masters of filmmaking and Ridley is one of them.
"I think every actor has a director that they dream to work with and for me it was Ridley. Out of all of those guys of his generation I've always walked around saying 'God, I would give anything to work with Ridley Scott,' and he was everything that I hoped and dreamed for. I've been a really lucky girl lately."
In addition to Prometheus, Oscar-winner Charlize is excited about Snow White and the Huntsman, where she plays the evil queen, because she thinks it is a "very ambitious" project.
She told seenit.co.uk: "It's super ambitious and very big and it's been interesting and really good. We're being very ambitious over here."
