Charlize Theron Pictures

Charlize Theron Pictures, After a three-year hiatus, Charlize Theron returns to movie screens Friday with “Young Adult,” a pitch-black comedy about making war – and a little bit of peace – with the past.
Because “Young Adult” takes a walk down memory lane, Theron is more than happy to offer up some less-than-flattering stories about her own youth, spent in Benoni, a small South African town outside Johannesburg.
Far from the most attractive – or popular – kid in school, Theron, 36, insists she was “pretty much of a mess” from the ages of 7 to 12. Even though the popular kids excluded her, Theron admits she was “obsessed” with her school’s Queen Bee.
“I mean, like you would go to jail for that stuff today,” the actress says with a laugh. “I’m so embarrassed to say this, but I was in tears one day because I couldn’t sit next to her. I have issues.”
Theron is adamant that, during her high-school years, boys never gave her the time of day.
“I wore really, really, really nerdy glasses,” she says. “I was blind as could be, and boys don’t really like big, nerdy glasses. Sure, I had a crush. I didn’t have any boyfriends, but I had a massive crush on this guy.”
Recently, a reporter for Vogue tracked down the one-time object of Theron’s desire. The lucky guy claimed he was just as wild about Theron as she was about him. But the actress isn’t buying it.
“This guy did not know I existed in school, but he was like, ‘Tell her the crush was mutual.’ F–k that. It was so not mutual. Then he was, like, ‘Oh, and I remember she wore those glasses.’ ”
Given her willingness to revisit her own past, it’s no wonder director Jason Reitman (“Juno,” “Up in the Air”) and scripter Diablo Cody (“Juno”) suspected Theron would be perfect for the role of Mavis Gary, a teen-lit author whose existence is shaken to the core when she receives the news that her former high-school boyfriend (Patrick Wilson) has just become a dad.
