Talented actress Charlize Theron is surprised over the lack of respect she's getting as an OSCAR winner.

The 29-year-old beauty won an ACADEMY AWARD earlier this year (04) for her performance as serial killer AILEEN WUORNOS in the hit film MONSTER .

But the gorgeous South African star says she gets no recognition for her trophy award.

She jokes, "Just the other day I realised that nobody has called me an Oscar winner so I'm sending a memo out.

"All of my agents from now on can only phone me if they call me an Oscar winner. My outgoing message should go, 'Hello this is Oscar-winner Charlize Theron, I'm not here right now, leave a message, and maybe I'll call you back.'"
