Charlize Theron wants to be a "damsel in distress".
The 'Hancock' star has had enough of playing tough female characters and now wants to land a role which sees her being rescued.
Charlize " who injured herself playing an action hero in 'Aeon Flux' " is quoted on gossip website absolutenow.com as saying: "It is nice to play the hero but at the same time it's nice to be a lady sometimes and be the stereotypical damsel in distress.
"I think every girl wants a hero to sweep them off their feet!"
The blonde beauty - who is in a long term relationship with Irish-born actor Stuart Townsend " recently admitted she isn't as tough as she seems.
She revealed this was partly because of her boyfriend, explaining "Stuart made me softer."
She added: "I am massively vulnerable, and for so long I just worked hard to cover that up. Stuart wasn't scared to confront that. He is the one man who never worries about kicking me up the backside."
