She is one of Hollywood’s most beautiful actresses.
But when it comes to dating, Charlize Theron hasn't always been lucky.
Appearing on Conan O'Brien's talk show this week, the Oscar-winner recalled a disastrous blind date she had after a charity auction.
Fulfilling her promise to "go to dinner with this strange man", Charlize said she "made two girlfriends sit at the restaurant".
"The closer I got, I thought: 'This could actually turn out really bad'," she said.
The 36-year-old, mum to six-month-old son Jackson, admitted the experience has put her off future blind dates.
"Look I would rather give the money (to charity), she said.
"It was a scary thing. And he was weird!"
Charlize split up from her long-term boyfriend, Irish actor Stuart Townsend, in 2010.
