South African beauty Charlize Theron has had to hire some paid help to clean up after her dog.

The OSCAR-winner injured her back whilst filming Aeon Flux earlier this year (AUG04), making it hard for her to clean up after her pooch's calls of nature - so she called in a professional.

A friend says, "Charlize had suffered back problems so called in extra help. Her boyfriend Stuart Townsend wouldn't do it so she had no choice."
