David Oyelowo deserves a better comedy showcase than 'Gringo'

  • Charlize Theron

This oddball ensemble crime-action-comedy - a business man (David Oyelowo) tries his hand at crime for a living - features Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton and Thandie Newton. Anyway, Charlize Theron's mom stops by on the reg to drop off weed candy that she's bought at the local dispensary.

Cast member Charlize Theron poses at the premiere for the movie "Gringo" in Los Angeles, California, U.S., March 6, 2018.

Charlize Theron certainly knows how to make a first impression, although things could get messy. The Gringo star stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night to talk about the film, where she plays the executive of a company that manufacturers a medical marijuana pill. "You can't have her, she's all mine", she told the audience.

Theron's recent marijuana tales may have something to do with her movie coming out tomorrow.

"I'm always willing to try anything". And the actress shared that they really helped to fix her sleeping pattern.

"You sort of need to pummel and plough away for longer, as a black actor, to get a degree of fame and, more often than not, you have to play a historical figure somewhere; basically a role that a white actor couldn't play". She says she has trouble sleeping, which I assume is due to flashbacks of the year-and-a-half of dating Sean Penn she was forced to endure.

Thinking that she was going to have to find the pot herself, Theron was surprised when a few days later, her mom showed up at her house with a container of marijuana-infused chocolates and mints. "She's pretty foul-mouthed. That's something from day one I was like, 'Wow!' Especially because she's so debonair and elegant, and then she has the mouth of the sailor". "I assumed because she was in a tennis outfit she had scored with one young tennis friend".
