Charlize Theron named UN Messenger of Peace

Big screen goddess Charlize Theron has been named the Messenger of Peace by the United Nations.

So what does that mean exactly? Theron will visit third world countries to promote efforts to end violence. She'll also address issues such as intercultural dialogue, the environment and youth.

"[Theron] has been recognized for her work focusing attention and mobilizing efforts on social issues, particularly in her native South Africa, where she has the Africa Outreach Project, which provides funding for a mobile health and computer clinic that visits high schools in rural communities affected by HIV/Aids," said a UN spokesperson.

As far as we're concerned, Theron can do no wrong. And her new title just makes her that much hotter!
