She won an Oscar, was nominated for several more, she’s beautiful, she’s proudly South African and she’ll be a guest presenter during the Final Draw ceremony of the 2010 FIFA World Cup: Charlize Theron!

Theron, famous for her performances in Monster, North Country, the Devil’s Advocate  and Hancock, will assist FIFA’s secretary-general Jérôme Valcke during the draw, which take place on December 4 2009 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Friday.

The actress, who was born in a farm in Benoni near Johannesburg, will be joined on stage by a herd of sporting celebrities and soccer legends, including David Beckham, Haile Gebrselassie and Makhaya Ntini.

Other guests during the ceremony of the Final Draw of the 2010 soccer world cup will include South Africa’s president Jacob Zuma, who will open the event, Issa Hayatou,       the chairman of the World Cup’s organising committee, the Nobel Peace Prize winners FW de Klerk and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, as well as the former footballers Franz Beckenbauer, Michel Platini, Eusebio and Roger Milla. South Africa’s first democratically elected president, and one of the world’s most beloved statesmen Nelson Mandela will address the audience by video message.

It expected that 200 million people from over 200 countries worldwide will witness the Final Draw on television.

The Final Draw, apart from being a lavish ceremony that is attended by 4000 delegates from across the world, is expected to turn Cape Town up side down. A festival will be held in Long Street, for instance. Despite the road closures in the area, most residents have said to be looking forward to the event.
