Love scene with Charlize Theron was a ‘nightmare’ says Patton Oswalt

Washington: Many people would do anything to shoot a love scene with Charlize Theron but for Patton Oswalt, who co-stars with the Oscar-winning actress in the new movie ‘Young Adult’, the experience was ‘‘a nightmare.’’

The actor revealed at the film’s premiere that his dream of doing a love scene with Theron turned into a nightmare as he felt that she had the most perfect body while his was very imperfect.

‘‘Why do I have to be in my underwear next to the most physically perfect person on the planet? Why couldn’t I have been next to John Goodman or Michael Moore in their underwear?’’ People quoted Oswalt as saying.

‘‘It was a dream that turned into a nightmare,’’ he said.

The comic drama stars Theron as Mavis Gary, a boozing, delusional author of young-adult novels who returns to her hometown to win back her happily married high-school sweetheart, played by Patrick Wilson.

Mavis forms an unlikely bond with nerdy former classmate Matt Freehauf, played by Oswalt.
