Charlize Theron is a slob

Charlize Theron is the picture of perfection on the red carpet, but according to Star, she is a slob at home, and it drives boyfriend Stuart Townsend crazy. To keep the house clean, he’s had to resort to assigning her chores.

“He was frustrated that the house always looks like a tornado hit it whenever he’s been away, so he created a chore list, and posts it on the refrigerator every day,” says an insider.

She even gets rewards for cleaning. If she makes the bed and cleans up after herself, she gets a day off, and Stuart will make her favorite breakfast of corned beef hash, roasted potatoes and bacon.

“They butt heads sometimes, especially over keeping the house tidy,” says the source, “but Charlize appreciates that Stu is so solution-oriented.”

Somehow I doubt she “appreciates” his solution-orientation while he’s nagging her to do dishes or pick up her dirty clothes, but the two of them must be doing something right — they’ve been together seven years.

Judging by Charlize’s svelte figure, she doesn’t get her favorite breakfast too often, unless she’s working off all those calories with lots of assigned chores.

    Weird…you would think they would have a maid. If I had that kind of money, I would never do dishes again.

    Good one Sammie :wink:

    My bf is a neat freak and this kinda crap drives me nuts. I would be annoyed at him “rewarding” me. Totally condescending or something. He’s messy in a different way than me and I think our “types” of messy bug each other. Not that we have problems; we’ve been together longer than Charlize & Stewart.

  4. Enonymous says:

    Charlize is so pretty, she has a very cute smile also. Yeh I think getting a maid would be easier, particularly if they work overtime.

  5. geronimo says:

    Elisha, the reality of their relationship is probably much different. I’m a bit of a neat freak, live with someone who leaves bits of his bike/fishing tackle all over the place and yeah, it’s a pain and he does drive me crazy sometimes, but he makes up for it in other ways. 8) I’m sure it’s not as regimental as she describes it here.

  6. Trillion says:

    comforting to know she has at least one fault.

    my gf is a professional organizer. i am a hurricane in the form of a sagittarius woman. we have two kids, three pet rats and a mouse. i swear to you that our house, asside from the kids’ room, looks like most peoples’ homes look after a good spring cleaning and still my gf wants to keep it up MORE. when we first met i appreciated her solution-orientation – now i am like, i want to live in my house. i don’t just want to live, i want to LIVE. when she post chore list i smile, kiss her cheek and say, “wow, looks like you will be busy today.” in my sweetest voice! :mrgreen:

  8. Anne says:

    Hm…I’m sure they have a maid or two. The story sounds embellished.

    Not your article, Sammie, Star’s.

  9. Kaiser says:

    So she’s disorganized and messy… and an [alleged] pothead? Shocking.

    Though I love them both, I could never be with anyone whose favorite breakfast included corned beef. Barfy, very barfy.

  10. bros says:

    samantha, no kidding. why would she need to organize?

    and kaiser, im totally with you on the corned beef thing, that stuff makes my stomach turn.

  11. Ron says:

    IF this is true. Hire a houskeeper. It works everytime! Once a week is great. But if she’s a big ole slob, they have enough money to have one everyday…which is my dream!

  12. Samantha says:

    Seriously. I would be crazy if I had that cash. I would just throw away my dirty things and buy new ones. People would be like, “Man, that Samantha is INSANE! She just set that pile of clothes on fire, and she was throwing fine china at the birds in her yard! But man when she hits that red carpet, sparkle sparkle!” =) *dreams…not about the red carpet, about throwing fine china at birds*

  13. AP says:

    This is what’s really important: Are those elevated shoes he’s wearing???? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a photo with her looking down towards her!!!!

  14. Because I say So says:

    Is it me or is Stuart T looking beat in every photo I see of him? I hope that Charlize’s success isn’t draining his own hotness. That would be sad, indeed.

    OT: who cares if she’s messy? Not like Stu is doing much these days, so why can’t he clean up after her? :lol:

  15. Mairead says:

    Love it! Sounds like a girl after my own heart :lol:
    I’d say they’re both very careful with money- and at least he’s not a trustifarian living off Daddy’s money, like some of his ilk.

    But the main thing that’s bothering me is actually roasting potatoes for breakfast! Where did he pick up that quare idea – sure every eejit knows that it’s scallions for breakfast (cooked potatoes sliced thickly and fried) :roll: :lol:

  16. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    This is so made up. Like they don’t have cleaning people to do that?


  17. paris herpes says:

    they don’t have a maid!?! that’s shocking. well at least they’re humble about it. my place is a mess too!

  18. Donna says:

    Somehow I get the impression they are just roommates.
    I don’t know why but I would bet money they are romancing other people.

  19. snappyfish says:

    Is it just me or does she look schlubby in that dress. It just doesn’t do her justice. If I didn’t know better I would ask if she is pregnant.

  20. Aud says:

    He can’t be as bad as my beyond obsessive compulsive neat freak fiance was. He’s calmed down some, even tho my house still looks more like a model home. I like walking in and feeling like I LIVE there. He goot the point tho after I went on strike, after cleaning for 4 hrs straight and he had the audacity to tell me the house was a pigsty and I hadn’t done a thing because I’d failed to polish the kitchen faucet.

    1 week of no cleaning, the week before we moved, and he realized just what I do…

  21. Nan says:

    Damn, is she missing something. An edge? I don’t know what it is. Too bad, she’s so close to being the perfect movie star of this day.

  22. enchantress says:

    She is really a lovely woman – such regal bearing and a beautiful swanny neck. Too bad about the dress, it hides her shape.

  23. Ethan says:

    She is pretty and didn’t need to get the nose job and the fake tan (o.k. and the bleached hair).

    However, stories about her being a spoiled slob have been around forever.

    She was in a boarding-school (in her teen years) and made the girls there do her cleaning (telling them she was royalty…).

    I guess some things never change…

  24. nancy says:

    ok…I am a neat freak, but, there are days when I don’t feel like doing much. My hubby doesn’t complain, he’s actually used to it, to the point where he gets weirded out when I don’t tidy up. So, Stu must be use to it by now, come on. And, they probably do have maids to pick up after, I am sure, both of them(not just charlize) :roll:

  25. David says:

    Sure Charlize can afford a maid. And then she has someone around the house who might decide to tell the world about her. It’s not worth the trouble. And besides you still have to fill up twenty four hrs per day 365 days per year with something. There’s not that much excitement in the world. I like Charlize and I think these photos are hilarious. I see two people who have been married awhile and have no illusions about life. They are just like us in a way.

    Blogroll links aint that great :P might be worth changing them? :P Just my 2 cents worth :P :D
