Charlize Theron has been awarded the Los Angeles Film Festival's Spirit of Independence award.
"She is a big movie star," said Dawn Hudson, awards director. "But what we love about her is that she's made interesting choices in her career. She's taken on challenging roles in her career when other movie stars don't."
"I think the biggest misconception about independent filmmaking is that if you do those movies, you'll always be thought of as that kind of actor," Charlize said. "And then you don't get to do the other things. And it's not true."
