Theron has on many occasions spoken about her admiration for 50s sex
symbol - and once considered buying the star's old house.
Meanwhile, Paris Hilton has claimed she is as good an actress as Theron.
The sexy socialite insists she is easily as talented as the screen beauty,
who won the Best Actress prize for her performance in 'Monster', and says
the pair will soon be competing for the same roles.
She said: "My acting coach told me I have a similar style of acting to her
so we may end up vying for the same parts."
