The prospect of sitting down and speaking to Charlize Theron and still finding the ability to produce more than a series of grunts and ahhhs is damn near impossible. Not only is she is a striking beauty, she is also a crazily talented actress. In other words, she may very well be perfection! However, since she was sitting next to the incredibly gifted actor Guy Pearce – somebody I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing before – it wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be thanks to a familiar face.

Both Theron and Pearce represent the corporate dark side in Ridley Scott’s latest PROMETHEUS. She is a tough as nails company player with a hint of sadness. Pearce plays a man that will be familiar to fans of the ALIEN franchise. The two actors talk about working with Ridley, old age make-up and the perceptions of strong willed women in a man’s world. And my composure is almost sufficiently intact... almost.

PROMETHEUS opens this Friday at a theatre near you.

Oh, JimmyO, how jealous I am that you got to be in the presence of that goddess! I really like her explanation of the nature of the Vickers character, in the hands of a lesser actress it could have been stiff and stupid but Charlize made her very interesting.

With Guy Pearce, I think it was his performance in the viral footage of the TED talk that was actually more impressive than his appearance in the movie itself - I don't know if the makeup helped or hampered him, to be honest. The

The charisma, ego and spark of brilliance in that clip is probably something all actors want to portray at one point or another.
