Charlize Theron took a break from promoting The Valley of Elah at the Venice Film Festival to do walk with the birds and do some shopping. Walk with the birds? Let us move on.
In The Valley of Elah, Theron plays a New Mexico detective drawn into the case of a U.S. soldier who disappears just days after returning from a tour of duty in Iraq.
Theron, 32, also got a wee-bit political the other day in an interview with the Associated Press Television:
"The decision-making process for going into Iraq was very hastily done, and I think the facts weren't there, and I just don't think you go to war for those reasons,"
"I think the thing that upset me most was the manipulation that our government did towards our people, manipulating them to believe that if they weren't for the war, they weren't patriotic."
