It's been a while since Charlize Theron has been seen at a premiere, but she was certainly on glowing form for the opening of her new flick on Thursday night. The beautiful South African stepped out in LA to a screening of her drama Sleepwalking.

And despite the title of the movie, the Oscar-winning actress was wide awake as she sent flashbulbs popping in a flapper-style black frock with on-trend platform sandals.

Talented Charlize, who stars as a troubled woman who abandons her 12-year-old daughter, was also on producing duty for the film. And it seems her work has a high-profile fan - in the form of veteran actor and co-star Dennis Hopper.

"It's terrific and Charlize is terrific," declared Dennis, who attended the screening with his wife Victoria Duffy. "I can hardly wait to see it!"
