Charlize Theron's boyfriend was ecstatic when the Hollywood beauty put on weight for her role as a serial killer in MONSTER - because her breasts grew bigger.

Theron, who won the Best Actress award at Sunday's (25JAN04) Golden GlobeS ceremony for her performance in the shocking movie, says fellow actor STUART TOWNSEND was pleased with the results.

The 28-year-old South African says, "He loved it. He liked my bigger boobs.

"But beyond that, he was supportive of me while we were shooting. Playing this character took me to a lot of dark places and I depended on late-night phone calls with Stuart to keep me from going crazy."
