Charlize Theron regrets ending things with beau Stuart Townsend.
Stuart Townsend had his heart broken back in February, but it looks as if he's finally moved on from his nine year relationship with Charlize Theron.
The Best Man actor was spotted dancing and making out with a mystery brunette...
Mainly gossip but check out some new pics of Stuart...
Thought we'd give our readers a bit of what's in the news as of late, some gossip, some fun... The UK The Sun had a [2013 Webmaster note: Link no longer publically archived: - http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/film/2895375/The-curse-of-winners-of-Best-Actress-Oscar.html] new article with an older pic of Stuart saying the couple are both naked of their commitment rings... And a couple of days earlier, ReelzChannel posted an new article article quoting an anonymous Marvel insider who had apparently spoke to Latino Review in an interview (...stay focused...) saying that Stuart Townsend was unhappy with the amount of screen time given his character... But our favorite has to be between the one posted at dumblehorse.com The "St. Patricks Day Special: These Hot Irish Actors Are An Irish Blessing" [2013 note: sorry, this link is now broken - http://dumblehorse.com/?p=5197] new article with the self evident title or MiamiHerald.com's "[2013 Webmaster note: sorry, this article no longer publically archived at - http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/03/17/1532933/lucky-we-have-these-irishmen.html] " Title: Lucky we have these Irishmen" with a similar theme...
UK news, and the immediate surrounds, have the best Sunday stories. Gossip Girl Amy Andrews has spotted an interesting story with this duo who worked on Battle in Seattle, "...The Dublin actor has agreed a [sic] part in a new film with Woody Harrelson..." To be produced by the double Oscar winning producer Noel Pearson (For 'My Left Foot' which also received five Academy Award nominations including Best Picture) who is a fellow native of Dublin. The new film is said to be set in South Africa.
And for those that might want to know more about what is currently happening with Stuart Townsend and Charlize Theron, Amy Andrews' article goes on to reveal that that rumoured fateful Mexican Trip "only lasted a day" and left Mr. Townsend with "no real idea why they broke up so suddenly", putting an end to their nine year relationship with the request he move instantly out of the common house. So what was the article she read? I'm guessing it's Barry Egan's where he says of the other business end that the two from Dublin are "currently in talks". There have been a few photosnaps of Charlize Theron out and about L.A. over the last several days.
Atlanta Georgia, May 15, will be a world overrun with Zombies as director (and writer of this pilot) Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) begins shooting AMC's "The Walking Dead". The new TV series is adapted from Robert Kirkman's masterpiece comic which is published by Image Comics. Motivated by mystery, bigshinyrobot.com decided to get pro-active and see who is slated to star as the central Zombie killing police officer "Rick Grimes" and came up with Stuart Townsend as being on the short list of the three most desirable.
Brace yourselves! Last night's fantasy may come to a tragic halt. Or not. Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend have NOT ended their 9 year relationship. According to E! News this is yet another break rumor...one of many over the years. Follow this link (posted Feb 1st) or popsugar (posted Feb 2nd) for another interesting link.
Stuart Townsend, won the honour of being the internet's "most googled celebrity" and his stardom soared to new and lofty heights with the advent of the block buster Vampire classic, Queen of the Damned. He brilliantly acted the charismatic Vampire lead, Lestat de Lioncourt whose on screen charms still captivates audiences such that he constantly finds himself dubbed as the most sexiest to have ever donned fangs and cape. Whilst that film was still in the editing room, he met and befriended the beautiful Charlize Theron during the making of Trapped (from Greg Iles's novel, 24 Hours) and the couple have been inseparable since. Not so according to a UK report from their Dailymail.
Todays Dailymail (UK) ran an article showing a picture of Charlize's bare hand. The attached caption reads "Theron's right hand was noticeably ring free as she manned the phones at the 'Hope For Haiti Now' telethon last week." The article talks of the nine-year Charlize Theron / Stuart Townsend romance and how it is considered as one of the most stable unions in show business, and goes on further to state the relationship has come to an end. If anything, we predict many hearts will skip a beat on reading this story. It appears that Charlize Theron has told close friends she decided to split from the Irish actor Stuart Townsend after a Mexican trip at Christmas. And this is why the antique 'commitment ring' that Stuart Townsend gave Charlize Theron (a symbol of their relationship) is missing from her finger. "...A friend of the actress said last night 'Stuart is gutted but Charlize said that she realised during the Mexican holiday that the relationship was over'..." Read the full article here.
Stuart Townsend and Charlize Theron have appeared together on screen in the following movies. Trapped, Head in the clouds and Aeon Flux.
The new film features interviews with Daryl Hannah, Stuart Townsend and Pablo Fajardo.

After the 236 million pounds splurge, TalkTalk is now able to house Tiscali's excellent biography of Stuart Townsend on their talktalk domain. The recent changes are such that when you wonder into our biography pages and get to the bottom of the page, the link may still say Tiscali, but you will be transported to the new domain.
Talktalk have also recently posted a great review of "The Escort" (also released as "The Wrong Blonde" and "Mauvaise passe") which is one of Stuart Townsend's earlier films with french legend Daniel Auteuil.
With the current success of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series movies, and concurrent renewed interest in 'Queen of the Damned', fans who have been longing for Warner Bros to release a Director's Cut and/or a Collectors Edition DVD of this icon movie should use the petition link in our 'Lestat' page to see if they can help the process along.
This story is fast becoming intriguing. The Marvel.com rss newsfeed has this interesting release in their Thor Movie: "Principal Photography Starts!" story. Updated: 2010-01-11 19:21:48 (Story also here) "...Ray Stevenson as Volstagg, Tadanobu Asano as Hogun, Josh Dallas as Fandral..." More later...
On the eve of production, and whilst there is still no official news, a few news related web sites are currently running with the story that Stuart Townsend has hit up against creative differences with regard to his role in the upcoming Thor movie writes Mike Cidoni. The story has steadily gained momentum as the apparent [two] sources close to the production (follow Associated Press or Huffington Post) also state [again off the record] that Joshua Dallas is ready to step into the role.
Stuart Townsend is a great actor whom brings an excellent stage 'presence' to the big screen and his legion of fans eagerly await his return to the big screen since his stint on the other side of the camera as director of his action packed milestone movie 'Battle in Seattle' which boasted an array of some very fine Hollywood actors like Charlize Theron, Martin Henderson, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Rodriguez, Ray Liotta, Channing Tatum and Andre Benjamin among others. The "Chaos Theory" movie was great fun and we want more!
"...I feel very blessed to have had a certain amount of success and now I'm reaching the point where I would love to be a mom. I know I want to raise a big family and it's just a question of time.
"I know I'm ready for that phase of my life and I know that Stuart is the man I want to take that step with."
Paramount has moved Thor's release date two weeks closer to 6 May 2011. Pirates of the Caribbean (4) 'On Stranger Tides' swiftly claimed Thor's old release slot of 20 May 2011.
The switch occurred after Sony decided to relinquish the esteemed 'first week of summer' as their date for the upcoming "Spider-Man 4" release whilst they suspect current script issues may delay a timely completion.
FADER 54 - Queen Of The Damned News
Great news for all Queen Of The Damned fans. The thefader.com has made their special Aaliyah Icon issue (issue 54)  a Free Download [40Mb .pdf file]

"...I love him as Lestat in the movie Queen Of The Damned..." cites Savannah as she declares Stuart Townsend the first gentleman of 2010 to receive her coveted Hump Day Hunk title.
The published author also keeps an internet blog.
"...To be honest the thing that I'm most excited about right now though, is the screen test we just finished for "Thor." We've done some costume tests and watching the Asgardians walk onto the sound stage takes me back to that first time I saw the X-Men on the set all together in Toronto. Only it was unlike anything we've ever put on film before! It's great to be starting the next decade in such an exciting way just as we did last decade. We're really redefining the comic book genre and what a Marvel movie can be. It's going to be great..." Kevin Feige (Marvel Studios President)
"can't stop staring at Thor's arms... Chris is HUGE!"
"[I feel] bad for accidentally punching Fandral (Stuart Townsend) in the stomach, Good thing he's a sweet guy!"
Alexander will play Lady Sif, an Asgardian warrior who has a bit of a thing for Thor... Sif will be having some sort of physical altercation with Fandral in the movie [???]
The cinematic release of Peter Jackson's adaptation of Alice Sebold's bestseller "The Lovely Bones" has seen Stuart Townsend appear in print in various papers across the globe.
Citing "creative differences" Peter Jackson had to swap out a twenty six year old Oscar-nominated Ryan Gosling role and re-cast the major role to Mark Wahlberg, ten years Ryan's senior.
The action reminiscent to Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings Trilogy casting when Irish Stuart Townsend was originally enlisted as the character Aragorn but saw the role go to the much senior Danish Viggo Mortensen.
CHARLIZE Theron is planning to get her beau tickets for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Stuart Townsend is a big soccer fan and is already planning on seeing as much of the World Cup as he can.
(Webmaster Lara note: Stuart Townsend is a very big lover of football (i.e. soccer) and was originally cast to star in the triple movie project "GOAL" (based on the life of football icon David Beckham) but left the project when they lost the original director, Michael Winterbottom. More in filmography section.)
Thor Could "Redefine" the Super Hero Movie, according to a story at reelzchannel. No matter your preconceived notion, ...you will walk away going, "I've never seen anything like this before within the super hero genre." It's so cool, and I don't want to use the word unusual, but it is unusual in the sense that it redefines what a super hero movie can be...
Production begins mid-January in Los Angeles shooting the stellar ending first, a huge battle scene. No plot details are yet confirmed. The link hints at some if you are further interested. It is sounding to be another awe inspiring movie with our favorite Stuart Townsend in. reelz story through here
(pic: Jane Foster knows that Aoen Flux has Fandral in her sights at the tennis in 2008)
News from marvel.com, Stuart Townsend has been cast to play adventurer Fandral in Marvel's upcoming action-adventure film Thor (God of Thunder) which is to be directed by Kenneth Branagh and to be released May 20, 2011. Other stars cast for the film are Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman and Samuel L Jackson.
The adventurer Fandral, Hogun The Grim and Volstagg The Valiant all fight alongside Thor. Stuart Townsend's character was based on the public persona of the Tasmanian born screen legend Errol Flynn. Fandral is a suave and skilled fighter who considers himself a ladies man. (Definitely Errol attributes).
In the US we have recently heard Stuart Townsend as one of the voiced characters on the Adult Swim series Robot Chicken.
Ian Biederman Project (Movie News - TV)
Yes, it happened. Thought it was time to update you guys on the unnamed Ian Biederman Project. The Pilot shoot took place between the 14 March and 5 April in Toronto. It stars Christina Cole as one Maggie Hill (which also the probable working title for the show), a top cardio-thoracic surgeon who was institutionalized for schizophrenia and tries to return to work. The only way she can prove her worth is by saving the patients nobody else can. Stuart Townsend co-stars as the imaginary boyfriend, Terrence James. Stay tuned.
