If you were saving your dollars in the hopes of one day scoring a charity date with Charlize Theron, forget it. That ship has sailed. 


The 36-year-old, who stars in "Snow White and the Huntsman" recently told Conan O'Brien that she will never again offer herself up for a personal one-on-one to raise money for a cause. She also recommend that other celebs heed her warning. 


“Do not do it. It’s like the worst idea ever. It’s one of things, I was like, yeah I am a dumb blonde,” she told Conan. “They trick you with the ‘people are suffering’ thing. You fall for it and before you know it you’re at a restaurant with some stranger. Like you could end up in Dahmer’s apartment!”


Theron, an avid supporter several charitable organizations, said that her last charity date included dinner with a "strange man." She was so nervous about the experience that she had two girlfriends sit incognito in the same restaurant as backup.


“Rich people can be creeps, too!” she said. “Look, I’d rather just give the money [to charity]. It was a scary thing. And [the guy] was weird!"
