We know there's plenty of air-kissing and mutual adoration in luvvie land.
But Charlize Theron has taken all that schmoozy schmaltz to a higher level - by literally kissing the backside of a Hollywood heroine.
The Monster Oscar-winner felt the need to pucker up at the Premiere Woman In Hollywood Event while paying tribute to movie veteran Shirley MacLaine.
Words were not enough for the blonde A-lister, so she stepped down from the stage to plant one on Shirley's bum.
Theron, who received an award herself during the evening's entertainment, blamed her hi-jinks on painkillers she was taking for a neck injury, picked up filming sci-fi movie Aeon Flux.
"It was a combination of my painkillers and the fact that everybody was paying tribute to this incredible woman, this incredible actress, so I had to go to the physical aspect of kissing her a**," Theron gushed to the press.
"She loved it," Charlize added. "She said it was the best she's had all year."
And it appears Shirley really was grateful for the backside-based compliment.
"I've gotta get to know her," MacLaine told IMDB.com. "I should get drunk with her,"
Now that's a night out we'd all like to witness.
