Charlize TheronEnlarge Photo
There is a difference between playing a hooker on film and being a hooker for real-real.
As proof, check this photo of Shauna Sand teetering out of her Bentley. Now, Shauna has a pretty impressive background: according to the Wikipedias, she wasn't always a high-rent Nomi Malone, she was an accomplished dancer and model of international repute. Then, around the time she married Lorenzo Lamas, things went a little off the rails. (Which was probably to be expected.) Now, she and Nomi are looking like not-so-distant cousins of the Hooker family, with roots, stripper pumps, and panty flashes just like mama used to have.
(Side note: the way we wrote that sentence makes "panty flashes" sound kind of like "hot flashes". Which is something that we hope our mothers never had, ever.)
To counter Ms. Sand, check this shot of Charlize Theron, pumping her own gas. No fake-bake, no exposed underwear. JEANS. Outfit color-coordinated to match her Lexus SUV. Theron makes filling-up look tasteful and refined. Then again, we wouldn't expect anything less from the woman who transformed a rough-and-tumble truck stop prostitute into Oscar gold. Obviously, the girl is magic.
