While the number is nothing to scoff at, it still doesn't come close to Jennifer Lopez, who rocked 240 carats of Harry Winston diamonds at this year's Golden Globes.

ET caught up with Charlize earlier this month, when she talked about her 4-year-old son Jackson's reaction to his mother in a very different look -- her dramatic The Huntsman: Winter's War costume.

"He came to set today and was watching a rehearsal when he turned to my mom and he went, 'Momma's spicy!'" Theron laughed during ET's exclusive set visit to the highly anticipated Snow White and the Huntsman sequel.
