Charlize Theron came to the rescue of a security guard who suffered a seizure before the Academy Awards on Sunday, according to a report.
The Monster star was heading into the prizegiving at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theater when a man working at the ceremony fell to the ground.
Editors at E! Online report Theron rushed to the security guard’s aid as another onlooker phoned a doctor.
Theron didn’t let the drama affect her appearance at the ceremony – she teamed up with Channing Tatum to perform a ballroom routine while host Seth MacFarlane sang Fred Astaire’s The Way You Look Tonight.
Speaking to E! Online later in the evening, Theron said of her performance, “(It was) completely nerve-wracking, but how could I not dance with Channing Tatum? He’s so wonderful!”
“I was sort of tricked into it. I thought it was going to be something smaller, like he (MacFarlane) pulls me up from the audience and we do a little spin. But then he was was like, ‘Rehearsals start Monday!'”
