Charlize Theron to wear pyjamas for the Oscars

The Oscar-winning actress believes only nominees should attend the glitzy ceremony on February 24.

Charlize, who is dating actor Stuart Townsend, said: “We are not going to the Oscars this year. I don’t think you go to those kind of awards unless you are nominated.

“I think it’s special if you get a nomination, or your film does. Then you go. But we don’t have any nominations or anything like that in the house so we sit in our jammies and watch it on the couch.”

Charlize’s ‘In the Valley of Elah’ co-star Tommy Lee Jones has been nominated as Best Actor for his role in the movie.

The South African star – who won the Best Actress Oscar for her role in 2003’s ‘Monster’ – also revealed she has no plans to get married.

She said recently: “We haven’t had a ceremony, but as far as I’m concerned, we’re married already. We didn’t do it in the eyes of God and I didn’t wear a white dress, but we don’t need a piece of paper to prove our commitment.”
