Love scene with Charlize Theron a 'nightmare'

2011-12-10 14:00
New York - Shooting a love scene with Charlize Theron would be a dream come true for many actors, but for Patton Oswalt, who co-stars with the Oscar-winning actress in the new movie Young Adult, the experience was "a nightmare".

"Why do I have to be in my underwear next to the most physically perfect person on the planet? Why couldn't I have been next to John Goodman or Michael Moore in their underwear?" said Oswalt at the film's premiere on Thursday night. "It was a dream that turned into a nightmare."


The comic drama, which opened in select cities on Friday, stars Theron as Mavis Gary, a boozing, delusional author of young-adult novels who returns to her hometown to win back her happily married high-school sweetheart, played by Patrick Wilson.

Mavis forms an unlikely bond with nerdy former classmate Matt Freehauf, played by Oswalt.

Oswalt said he kept a souvenir from his time on the set with Theron - post-traumatic stress disorder.

"Every time I hear a car backfire, I think I'm getting naked again," he joked.

The film, directed by Jason Reitman and written by Diablo Cody, goes into wide release on December 16.

    What this article is trying to say is that Oswalt found it "hard" to keep his willy under control!!! Who can blame him hey !!! Poor chap :-)

    The title of this article is misleading and puts Charlize in a bad light. Poor reporting in an attempt to sensationalise a rather boring article.

    Why not get naked with the Benoni Bicycle? Everyone else in Hollywood has...

    either way she is not too bad looking. But i see that there is a gossip section, that’s where this article should be, not in the NEWS section. PS the Benoni citizens are now naming bitches after her ! lol A 6-year-old stray boerboel, who was spotted roaming aimlessly in Benoni, has been named Charlize after the town's most famous export, Charlize Theron. That's why she had to go it was the compettion
