Italian Job beauty Charlize Theron has had her negative views on marriage overhauled by handsome British lover Stuart Townsend.

The actress's love for the British hunk - who she met on the set of 2002 movie TRAPPED - has forced her rethink her previous doubts about tying the knot.

South African Charlize gushes, "When I met Stuart I was like, 'No, I'm never going to get married. I'm going to be like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Who needs a piece of paper?'

"But everything about Stuart is so similar to where I come from and what I believe in - morals and family values. And Stuart's made me see that there's something really beautiful about a ritual, about an occasion where you say out loud in front of people close to you, 'I want to be with you for the rest of my life'."
