Wearing a sexy cleavage-baring white ensemble with leopard print heels, South African-born American actress Charlize Theron was a red carpet stunner at the Paris premiere of "Hancock" on Monday night (June 16).

Joined by co-star Will Smith, the duo laughed amongst one another as they posed for a lineup of photographers before making their way into the theater for the screening.

The movie, which hits theaters in the States on July 2nd (France on July 9th), tells the story of "a hard-living superhero who has fallen out of favor with the public, then entering into a questionable relationship with the wife of the public relations professional who's trying to repair his image."

Speaking about a scene in the movie, Charlize recently told press that Will Smith slapped her for real on-set, although he isn't quite willing to accept responsibility.

"He tried to fake slap me one time, but the fake one just didn't happen. We're still debating this one. I think he just hit me! But Will claims I leaned into his hand and that's how it happened. I was so shocked! I was like, 'He just slapped me! But he said, 'I did not slap you. I had my hand there and you turned into it,'" she tells.

Not letting a little contact ruin their growing friendship, Charlize adds: "We're just like kids, it's so much fun. He's not a woman beater!"
