She's widely considered one of the most striking ladies in Tinseltown, and Charlize Theron was selected to cover the December 2011 issue of Los Angeles Confidential.
The Oscar-winning actress didn't disappoint as she looked breathtaking in a spread shot by Tom Munro gracing the pages of the publication's year-ending installment.
Meanwhile, highlights from Miss Theron's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Los Angeles Confidential!
On being driven when it comes to work:
“There’s a great tenacity when I tackle something, and I don’t half ass anything. When I work, I work really, really hard. And I think that - combined with the people who believe in me - has been really a great blessing.”
On maintaining a long-lasting career as an actress:
“I don’t know if I feel I’m here to stay, but that’s a good thing. That keeps you on your toes. I think this is an industry where you can’t get too comfortable. It’s constantly churning with great talent, and you’ve got to raise the bar and try to push yourself. I don’t ever want to kind of feel, ‘Yeah, I’m here. I made it.’ I think that would probably be the time to retire.”

For a woman who's been honored with nearly every important award that Hollywood has to offer, from an Academy Award to a Golden Globe, not to mention coveted titles like Esquire's "Sexiest Woman Alive" and Spike's "Decade of Hotness," it seems like it's been awhile since we've seen Charlize Theron in action.
Thankfully the nearly three-year wait for a Theron movie to hit theaters is almost over. Her latest flick is the buzzed-about Jason Reitman-directed, Diablo Cody-scripted comedy "Young Adult," which gets a limited release next week; the highly anticipated "Snow White and the Huntsman" hits theaters next summer.
MTV News recently caught up with the down-to-earth Oscar winner as she did press for "Young Adult," and we had to find out what the lovely leading lady has been up to the last few years.
"[I was] unemployed, I just couldn't get a job," Theron joked, adding that an average weekday for her involved several ... suspicious activities.
"I cry and drink and shoot heroin. Is that not a typical Tuesday for you?" Theron asked MTV News' Josh Horowitz with a smile. "Then I go to therapy and things turn out OK. No, I was getting ready to go and do a film in Australia and that just kept pushing and pushing," she explained, referring to the problem-plagued "Mad Max: Fury Road."
Theron said she "would love" to make "Fury Road" in spite of the delayed production. And while she's slated to star opposite Tom Hardy in the film, the actress debunked a rumor that her character would be kicking butt with just one arm. "Who told you that?" she asked when we brought up the report. "Do you actually believe everything on the Interweb? Poor you," she laughed.
It's still unclear when or if George Miller's long-delayed resurrection of the"Mad Max" franchise will start production again, but fans can be hopeful. After all, Miller recently revealed his plans for not one, but three feature films.
"We started with ['Fury Road'], but we then started to do a second story and a third," he said. "We've written the script for the second and almost finished the third. We never intended to — they were part of the exploration of the characters."
The foundation for the film’s greatness certainly comes with the cast. Newcomer Jeremy Irvine is a star in the making as Albert, the English farmboy who trains Joey, the unmanageable thoroughbred. Emily Watson is simply outstanding as his mother. “It’s the best work she’s ever done,” Spielberg told me yesterday after the Q&A, and he’s quite right. (And that’s saying a lot.) Niels Arestrup, Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Marsan, David Thewlis, David Kross (from “The Reader”) and Benedict Cumberbatch are just a few of the extremely skilled British actors that smart filmgoers will recognize. They are each sensational. Peter Mullan, less well known to American audiences, is spot on as Albert’s troubled father.

According to Patton Oswalt, the moment that stole last night's Gotham Awards, when he presented a career tribute to his Young Adult co-star Charlize Theron and then was forced by her to stay onstage as she made her acceptance speech, began at the dinner table. "I only finished half my plate," he told Vulture later, "because she was making fun of how fucking fat I am, so I stopped eating, started drinking wine, and I was writing all these mean things about her. She hands me my ass every five minutes and that makes me go at her even harder. She's a comedian's gift. She made that speech that good." His speech, in truth, wasn't very hard-hitting (watch it after the jump), though he did spend an inordinate amount of time harping on how her first credit on IMDb was in 1995 as "Uncredited teenager in Children of the Corn 3." As the reel of clips began, he warned the audience, "We couldn't get the rights. It's just going to be Children of the Corn 3 in its entirety. I'm sorry. Get some more wine. We'll make it through this."
