OSCAR-winner Charlize Theron was amazed by the humility of former South African President Nelson Mandela.

The blonde beauty brought her Best Actress ACADEMY AWARD home to her homeland earlier this year (04) and was honoured to meet the human rights legend.

Theron says, "He was telling me he doesn't think he'll get into heaven.

"I'm thinking, 'If you're not going to heaven, then I am screwed.'"
