Charlize Theron paired with announcer Steve Higgins to face off against the duo of Josh Hartnett and Jimmy Fallon in a heated game of charades on “The Tonight Show.”
First, the “A Million Ways To Die In The West” star sat down at the “Tonight” desk and praised Fallon for getting her name correct and not pronouncing it like “Their-Own.”
“If it was [pronounced like that] we would have made a sketch called ‘Games of Therones’,” Fallon joked. “Now we have to settle for something like ‘Theron Brockovich’.”

Fallon then returned the praise by lauding her performance on “Saturday Night Live.”
“You were amazing,” Fallon said. “You should join the cast.”
“I’m too old,” Theron replied. “They are marathon runners, like comedian athletes. I am so impressed. I slept for like a week after that.”
Fallon also brought up Theron’s son, Jackson, who is 2 1/2. The late-night host asked what he’s been into lately.
“It started with this whole 'Frozen' phenomenon. He’s really into princesses now,” Theron said, which made the audience giggle. “I know this isn’t just my son so you all can act really cool about it."
She continued, “He really loves his Tinker Bell doll, sometimes Tinker Bell needs to go on a trip just to give the other toys a chance. Tinker Bell goes to Africa a lot.”
Finally, the two joined Higgins and Harnett to play Charades. Fallon was stumped when he drew “Private Dancer,” referring to the Tina Turner hit.
