    and Charlize Theron ended her years with Stuart Townsend !!! ? what a mistake. Check him out on my fave tv show of the season…..Betrayal. Wow ! and he can act too !!!!!!

      I do remember reading about that. I doubt if his life was in danger. :) She took him to Mexico for a holiday…and then that was it for her. I heard she was difficult on movie sets etc..and in Mexico.
      who knows.
      He is terrific in Betrayal
      …great cast..settings..and music also. I really enjoy the show.
      He has been around for a while…..and I hope he gets a decent movie role soon.

    • Never forget that her mother killed her father, so Stuart may be fortunate to have gotten out with his life. Surely he will have zero problems finding a mentally-stable replacement.
