Charlize Theron: Palm Springs Gala Vanguard Award Winner

Posted Sunday January 8, 2012 7:21 AM GMT

She's always easy on the eyes, and last night (January 7) was no different as Charlize Theron looked stunning at The 23rd Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala in Palm Springs, California.

Held at the Palm Springs Convention Center, the Oscar-winning actress donned a dashing black Lanvin frock as she joined her "Young Adult" director Jason Reitman, co-star Patton Oswalt and writer Diablo Cody in accepting the Vanguard Award for Creative Ensemble.

Prior to the ceremony's onset, Miss Theron worked the arrivals carpet where she was asked to talk about what drew her to her 'seedy' character of Mavis Gary in the recently released dramedy.

To this, Charlize replied, "She's troubled. As we all are, right? I mean, I just saw great potential... she felt very real to me. Jason and I when we first talked we said to each other, a lot of times there's this feeling when you read a script they're movie people, they're not real people. And there was something about her that felt very real to me."
