Charlize Theron's Indecent Proposal
Charlize Theronlooked stunning in a shimmering silver gown at the Friday premiere of her new drama 'The Burning Plain,' held at the 65th Annual Venice Film Festival. Usmagazine.com reports that during the press conference for the film, the Oscar winner was caught a bit off-guard when a reporter told her that he wanted to marry her "First of all, I really like you so much and have a lot of respect for you but I would like to marry you," said the reporter, adding, "I have a question: which side [of the bed] do you prefer to sleep [on]?" "The side that you are not on," responded Charlize, whose long-time boyfriend is actor Stuart Townsend. She then jokingly yelled, "Security! Security! Security!" and offered, "The man with the red -- you are very cute, but you know my boyfriend will kill you." Directed by the writer of 'Babel' and '21 Grams,' 'The Burning Plain' stars Charlize opposite Kim Basinger in a story about a woman recalling her challenging upbringing.
