Hollywood actress Charlize Theron believes she is the same person she was before winning an Oscar, because she still cleans up after herself.

Theron insists her current daily existence is exactly as it was before February 2004, when she took home the Best Actress Academy Award for her performance in MONSTER.

The 30-year-old says, "The Oscar didn't change my life. I still take the garbage out, I still feed the dogs.

"That gold statue doesn't clean your house."
