Charlize Theron Dazzles at GQ Men of the Year Awards

Posted Tuesday September 6, 2011 4:33 PM GMT

Stepping out for a special occasion, Charlize Theron attended the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London, England on Tuesday (September 6).

The “Astro Boy” babe looked lovely in high-waisted pants and a lavender top as she smiled for pictures before heading inside the Royal Opera House venue.

The UK outing comes just after a poster for the upcoming dramedy called “Young Adult” - which stars Theron - was released.

Theron plays an alcoholic writer of young-adult novels who, on a whim, decides to return to the small town that she left behind years ago to aggressively pursue her ex-boyfriend from high school, but quickly discovers that he is happily married and the father of a young child. This leads her to another high school classmate, and in turn causes some trouble.

"Young Adult" hits theaters on December 9.
