Charlize Theron okay with B.O.

Charlize TheronOscar-winning actress Charlize Theron recently told David Letterman on his talk show: “There’s a time and a place for everything and sometimes there’s a time for not showering.” She says she could go for up to a week without bathing. “I’m very spoiled and I don’t take for granted how lucky I am to stay in fancy hotels and fly first class. So when I do have a little time off, I like to get down and dirty like camping or travelling to countries that don’t have the luxuries. I’m a tough girl and if I can not shower for a week — I’m fine with that.” In what may or may not be related news, Theron says her longtime boyfriend, Stuart Townsend, hardly ever pays her any compliments or gives her special treatment, which is what keeps her grounded. Theron can soon be seen on the big screen in Hancock, co-starring Will Smith. To watch her exclusive Tribute interview, click here.

    I guess growing up in Africa you have to be use to BO with the heat and insects. I can go for a week not showering but I still wash places while camping. You don’t want to have a good ole time camping and come back with an infection.

    She is an awesome person, wish she was single and picked me.

    Wh33t, I agree, most guys would like that!

    Hell yeah! i know i would like that! my girl friend is incredibly materialistic.

  7. tributegirl • June 27, 2008 @ 6:52 PM

    That’s too bad, Chris. I’m not materialistic at all, but I do still like to hear a compliment once in a while.

    Maybe it’s hard to compliment her when she smells like dirty you-know-what!
    I really enjoy her work, and her attitude towards life. She’s a keeper, stinky or not!!

    Hygiene is a must!! A week is too long, in my opinion!

  11. tributegirl • July 2, 2008 @ 7:54 PM

    Yeah, I agree, a week is way too long!

    Yes Tammy, I like her too, she seems very down to earth and unpretentious. Some really good acting as well with her, i.e. In the Valley of Elah.

    She says “if I cannot shower for a week” – IF is the word here. I hardly think she’s giving Pepe Le Pew a run for his money….

  13. Nancy • July 2, 2008 @ 10:39 PM

    She did say she could go for “up to” a week without showering….again, a week is too long in my opinion.
