Hollywood star Charlize Theron was kicked out of America while filming Devil's Advocate, reoprts

The star has revealed she was briefly kicked out of America as her career was taking off - because she was working illegally in Hollywood.

As her work visa expired, Theron was still fighting for roles in Hollywood - and had just landed a role opposite Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves in 2007 film The Devil's Advocate when immigration officials caught up with her.

She explains, "I had to hold out for two years after playing the femme fatale in Two Days In The Valley because people wanted me to play that role. I think there was a conscious effort on my part to hold back and I didn't work for two years and I waited and really fought for roles in The Devil's Advocate and The Yards, Cider House Rules.
