Charlize Theron Talks Working with Her ‘Prometheus’ Co-Stars: “We really just enjoyed asking all the big questions and not necessarily finding the answers”

Charlize Theron is starring in the highly anticipated sci-fi film, Prometheus, as Meredith Vickers and when speaking to Collider, she talked about working on the film and collaborating with Ridley Scott and co-stars Michael Fassbender and Guy Pearce.

She said, “I always have a good time because God, I mean, we’re just a bunch of kids who never got to grow up, and now we’re playing on a spaceship.  How can you not enjoy that, you know?  So yeah, I had a great time making this film.”

Although Theron had fun with her costars, the actress also found the process rewarding as an actor.  She said, “There was a lot of stuff that didn’t end up in the movie, but I think you can’t be attached to those things as an actor. I want to be in a good movie, and so the narrative is way more important. I think that stuff helps create maybe a thickness to her that wouldn’t have been there.  I think in the long-run, all of that stuff was really important. They were great. I mean, Damon [Lindelof] was always around. Ridley was just always asking questions. It was just one of those environments where we were always talking about it, always, and there were even moments where Michael Fassbender and I would kind of enhance on our scenes and talk about it. Ridley was incredibly just open to all of that stuff. It was just a very collaborative set, and my fear was that we were trying to answer things that you can’t answer, and that’s when it becomes problematic, and it wasn’t that kind of set. We really just enjoyed asking all the big questions, and not necessarily finding the answers.”

Prometheus opens in theaters nationwide on June 8.
