Charlize Theron: "I'm A Director Slut!"

Charlize-Theron-in-Young-Adult.jpg

I just came from a special screening of Young Adult, written by Diablo Cody, in which Oscar winner Charlize Theron plays a fiction writer who becomes trapped in a delusion, staking out her high school boyfriend and desperately trying to steal him away from his wife and baby.

After the movie, Charlize said that when Jason Reitman asked her to be in the film, she was thrilled.

"I'm a bit of a director slut," she said, grinning.

Chimed in Patton Oswalt, who plays an old high school friend of Charlize's:

"Does Michael Bay know that? Don't let that out!"

Chirped Charlize, "No, I'm not a slut for that kind of director."

The crowd giggled, enjoying her humor and honesty.

"See you tomorrow, New York Post," cracked Oswald.

And tonight, La Daily Musto!

Word is already out on this movie: bomb.

I usually hate Jason Reitman's films (based on them usually being conceited and having issues with where to go tonally from beginning to end) but this looks slightly more unapologetic about its character being so unlikable (unlike Clooney in Up in the Air or Eckhart in Thank You, For Smoking who we were pushed to sorta like in the end after they act like smug jerks through most of their films).  I hope that is the case, at least.   Plus I really like the idea of Charlize in this sort of role that unlike Clooney and Eckhart, is really going against type.

another charlize theron flop.

and she's gettin a little too elderly to be a leading lady in today's hollywood movies.

Great still photo, reminiscent of those kooky hello-I'm-trouble female characters who seemed everywhere onscreen during the '70s then suddenly disappeared (except for rare indie projects). If she can provide a decent approximation of some of those dames, then we're in for a nice ride.

It looks VERY dark and unsympathetic which I like because it's not the usual pablum. I might get a ticket even though I wasn't crazy about Juno.

Well, if there's a 91% "want to see it" rate, how is it a bomb???
