Charlize Theron is trying to do Nicole and Salma one better. To play real-life prostitute-turned-serial killer Aileen Wuornos in ”Monster” (coming in November), Theron is employing a time-honored Oscar technique: uglifying her gorgeous self. And we’re not just talking fake nose or unibrow here; she dons fake teeth and dark contacts – and packs an extra 16 pounds (thanks, Krispy Kreme). In casting the ”Sweet November” actress, writer-director Patty Jenkins looked past Theron’s beauty to her ”courage and tremendous lack of vanity.” In fact, she says, ”now we see her looking like s – - every day, and she doesn’t mind a bit.” Indeed, Theron says slumming it on the Orlando set is no big deal: ”I’m not going to show up in Versace and perfect makeup every day just to show the crew how good I can look.”
