Charlize Theron was swiftly brought back down to earth the morning after her 2004 Oscar win, when her boyfriend Stuart Townsend told her to make her own breakfast.

The South African actress - who has shared a home with the Irish actor for the past four years - doesn't expect any special treatment for her accomplishments.

The NORTH COUNTRY star says, "He's a great guy. He's down-to-earth and he knows what's important in life.

"Even the morning after the Oscars, I was like, 'Breakfast!' and he's like, 'Get up! I'm not making you breakfast now because you've won an Oscar!' I'm so blessed to be around somebody like that."
