OSCAR-winner Charlize Theron took a leaf out of Jedward's beauty bible when she attended a glitzy Hollywood after party.

The Prometheus star slicked her cropped blonde locks into a Grimes brothers do at the bash for Mark Wahlberg's new film Lone Survivor.

The 38-year-old decided to stay away from John and Edward's gravity-defying hair gel, however, and went for a more relaxed quiff.

However, as the South African beauty continues to turn heads, her ex-boyfriend is hitting the headlines again, for all the wrong reasons.

Dublin actor Stuart Townsend, who dated Theron for nine years before they split in 2010, is the star of new ABC drama Betrayal.

However, three episodes in, the ratings for the gritty drama are less than healthy.

It enjoys a 10pm slot on RTE2 every Tuesday, but had just 130,000 people turning in for the opening episode last month with Tuesday night's take-in the lowest yet at 125,000.

Stuart (40) stars as Jack McAllister, a lawyer who becomes embroiled in an affair with photographer Sara Hanley, played by American actress Hannah Ware.

The show has been panned across the Atlantic with one critic saying it's a "show about infidelity that isn't very sexy".

However, an RTE spokesperson told the Herald: "It is coming along quite well for us."
