“Extra’s” Mario Lopez sat down with Charlize Theron, the star of the new comedic action movie “Gringo,” and asked Charlize how Paris Jackson, the 19-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson, landed her first acting role in the film.
Theron told Mario, “It came about in an interesting way. It was actually written very different. It was actually written for a young male. We had heard that she was interested in acting and Nash (the director) met with her and said, ‘I think she’s really good.’”
Charlize continued, “She really got the part fair and square. There were no favors involved. She auditioned for it, she came in and was super professional and she really killed it.”
“Gringo” is in theaters March 9.
