Did you see The Oscars yesterday? It was pretty blah, right? Except for that ballroom dance with Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum! That was EVERYTHING! Right?

Who knew Charlize was SUCH a good dancer. We certainly didn’t. But what we also didn’t know was the life-threatening obstacle she dealt with before the waltz.

OK, we’re exaggerating a bit, but Charlize was an Oscar night hero for a fainting security guard.

As the actress was making her way into the ceremony, she noticed a man working the red carpet fall to the ground. She raced to his aid as someone else phoned a doctor.

Despite those (literal) pre-show jitters, she went onstage and performed that dance with ease.

However, Charlize admitted she never agreed to do a full ballroom dance in the first place.

“I was sort of tricked into it. I thought it was going to be something smaller, like [Seth] pulls me up from the audience and we do a little spin. But then he was like, ‘Rehearsals start Monday!'” Charlize joked.

Ohh, how silly! Tricked into a turn with Tatum!

“It was completely nerve-wracking, but how could I not dance with Channing Tatum? He’s so wonderful!”

OMG she saw Magic Mike. Oh, she TOTALLY saw Magic Mike.
