You can forget about Charlize Theron joining Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood's Hoover biopic, 'J. Edgar.' As it turns out, her reps got ahead of themselves when talking to the director's people about her playing Hoover's personal secretary Helen Gandy. The actress had to set the record straight, turn down the role and smooth things over with Eastwood.

Though she doesn't want to get involved with the inner workings of the F.B.I. and the controversial life of its notorious first director, she is entertaining the notions of hitting space and facing some gnarly aliens. According to new reports, Twentieth Century Fox wants her to lead Ridley Scott's 'Alien' prequel, 'Paradise.'
