Theron left red-faced on TV as ex-dance teacher revealed her childhood anticsMarch 7th, 2009 - 11:37 am ICT by ANI
London, March 7 (ANI): Oscar-winning actress Charlize Therons former dance teacher left her red-faced on a British chat show by talking about her embarrassing childhood habits over the phone.
It happened when broadcasters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan were interviewing the Monster star on March 5.
According to reports, the talk show was going smoothly until the programmes producers made a surprise call to Therons former dance teacher Bernice Lloyd in her native South Africa.
“Charlize was a wonderful child. She was always so beautiful and so disciplined and always, always showed entrepreneurial skills, the Daily Express quoted Bernice as saying.
“She always had these entrepreneurial skills and she used to buy sweets from the school tuck shop and sell them at night to hungry children for a profit. We thought it was wonderful - we, her teachers, thought that showed gumption (initiative),” she added.
Theron, who was mortified by the revelation, then exclaimed: “Oh my god, Bernice! This in insane! I don”t remember selling candy at a profit! I did start drinking at a very early age, so my memory is a bit dodgy.” (ANI)
