Theron Credits Cigarettes To Helping Her Career
Actress Charlize Theron credits her smoking habit with her Hollywood success.
The Monster star, 32, admits cigarettes are "filthy", but claims the unhealthy practice inadvertently landed her a role In The Valley Of Elah.
She explains, "I still smoke, occasionally. But it led to a role in my new film. I kept on running into writer and director Paul Haggis when we were at an awards event. He was there for his film Crash and I was there for North Country.
"We were the only two losers in an alley, smoking. He said, 'I'm going to write a film for you.' And he did." (PAW/WNBIN/LJ)
