London: Hollywood actress Charlize Theron has heaped praise on her `Snow White & The Huntsman` co-star Kristen Stewart, insisting her laid back attitude to fame is "so refreshing".

Theron, 36, bonded with the young actress while they were shooting the forthcoming fantasy film, and the South African beauty admits she was left impressed by how well Stewart copes with life in the spotlight since shooting to stardom with the `Twilight` movie franchise, reported Vogue magazine.

"She just turned 21. She`s a child. When I think about myself at 21, I had just done The Devil`s Advocate, and Keanu Reeves had paparazzi following him and Al Pacino said this thing to me: `If I knew that my life would be under this kind of scrutiny, I would have never become an actor.` And I thought, `Wow!` I couldn`t comprehend it.

"And Kristen is just living this to the max and still has a sense of humour about it. There`s this really lovely quality about her that just doesn`t give a damn... That`s what`s so refreshing about her," said Theron.
