Charlize Theron is sick of having to kiss women on screen - she is desperate to do more romantic dramas opposite men.

The OSCAR-winning beauty, who smooched with Christina Ricci in Monster and Penelope Cruz in HEAD IN THE CLOUDS, is frightened of getting typecast in a lesbian or bi-sexual way.

A source explains, "Charlize has noticed that she's getting offered a lot of scripts which would have her playing a lesbian or feature her kissing another woman.

"She doesn't intend on making a name for herself in that way. She'd love to do a real romantic drama next - but preferably with a man."
