Charlize Theron owns her sex tape

2012-04-03 11:42
Kudos to onse Charlz for her hand in this hilarious April Fools' Day joke.

The Oscar-winning actress teamed up with the guys at Funny or Die to release a series of videos which they supposedly retrieved from her hacked cellphone.

These videos include a sex tape, an OTT Oscar acceptance speech rehearsal and an "official statement". Watch them here and we guarantee you'll be LOLing all the way through.

In a world where the terms "leaked" and "offered" to the media are so interchangeable, it's nice to see a star like Charlize poking fun at herself and this crazy celebrity culture.

Many celebrities have more control over what information is available to the media and the public than they claim. Those "Oh no! You photographed me naked in my pool!" claims are just for sensation, because it sells. They see you pointing your camera, they be posin'.

While Charlize's stunt may be just that, she's still in control, and having a good laugh while doing it. It might be a totally different story if her real sex tape ever gets 'leaked'...

So what are your plans for the Easter weekend? We're getting an early start with the Eagles concert in Cape Town on Wednesday and we'll be checking out American Reunion, the fourth instalment in the American Pie series, at the movies.

Tell us about your plans; you can even send us the photos. But if you're making a sex tape, you can keep that to yourself.

Here's to a rocking Easter weekend,


Local is very lekker!
