Filmmaker Paul Haggis has discovered Charlize Theron's secret addiction - U.S. game show DEAL OR NO DEAL. Haggis was amazed by how much time his fellow Oscar winner spent in her trailer playing a videogame version of the show on the set of their new movie In The Valley Of Elah. He says, "I went to Charlize's trailer to talk to her about a scene, and I heard these really strange sounds inside. I heard (show presenter) Howie Mandel's voice. Inside the trailer, she was watching the videogame version of Deal Or No Deal. "(Charlize said, 'Shh... shh... shh. He's offering the guy $200,000.' I said, 'Charlize, the guy's offering you $200,000 - take the money. And she said, 'No, no, no. I'll wait for more.' "Then it went to $300,000, and I was like, 'Charlize, take the money, it's $300,000.' It got to $600,000, $700,000. I was screaming at the top of my lungs, 'Take the money! Take the money! Take the money!' And she was saying, 'No, no.' She was addicted to the show." Haggis adds, "Charlize would say, 'Excuse me, Paul. I have to go prepare.' And she'd go back and they'd be playing Deal or No Deal."
